Jenks 70, MHS 52
The boys game went according to the rankings. No. 6 Jenks (5-3, 4-1) was 6-of-8 from 3-point range in opening a 36-26 halftime advantage and pushed it to 23, 63-43, in the fourth quarter.
Unranked Muskogee fell to 3-4, 2-2.
“They shot well but I think it ultimately came down to 50-50 ball (getting beat on loose balls and rebounds) and we’ve got to go get those. We also allowed too many straight line drives,” MHS coach Josh Berry said.
Forward Anthony King had 20 points for the Roughers while center Tramal Ivy had 19 to go with eight rebounds and one blocked shot. Guard David Beasley was held to six points and a season-low one field goal on 1-of-9 shooting.
Jenks’ Luke Phillips had 26 points, including a pair of 3-pointers, and seven rebounds.
The Roughers could get another meeting with Jenks next week in the Shrine Classic but first must face Checotah in a 9 p.m. tipoff on Monday night at the Civic Center.
