MHS girls jinxed at Jenks to end streak

(Continued)

Boys:

Jenks 79, Muskogee 61


Playing their second consecutive game without point guard David Beasley, out indefinitely with a head injury, the Roughers (8-12, 4-7)  had to rely even more on the inside game of Tramal Ivy and the outside shooting of Anthony King – which wasn’t nearly enough.

Ivy had 10 points at the half  – but 6-foot-3 senior Jacob Siedel had 11 and the Trojans (15-6, 8-4) tossed up five 3-pointers, two by John Jones, one of two players with eight points at the break. The Trojans were up 19-9 after one quarter and 46-21 at the half.

But Beasley’s double-digit average wasn’t the problem, MHS coach Josh Berry said, pointing instead to some major defensive lapses.

“We gave up too many open shots and we turned the ball over too much,” Berry said. “Our defense hurt us the first half.”

The Roughers’ best quarter was the third as they got within 14 twice, outscoring the Trojans 23-14. Ivy finished with 23 points to lead all scorers. King, at forward, had 19 points but 15 in the second half.  

Muskogee got a little more offensive production from the guards as Cantrell Ashley had six third-quarter points and finished with eight. Ashley and freshman Quintahj Cherry shared point duties, but Ashley played most of the third quarter there. Cherry did not score.

Steven Parker had 17 points to lead Jenks, which has beaten the Roughers three times this season, once in the Bedouin Shrine Classic title game. Siedel had just one field goal in the second half and finished with 16 points. Jones also had just one field goal and finished with 15.

Both MHS teams are at Broken Arrow on Monday.
