FGHS ladies earn ninth straight state berth; boys come up short

(Continued)

Boys:

Muldrow 78,

Fort Gibson 65


Jordan Hill and Jordan London had their problems with Muldrow’s defense as the No. 6 Tigers ended their season at 24-5.

The Bulldogs’ defense held the Tigers scoreless for four minutes in the third quarter. Fort Gibson’s deficit grew from 42-38 to 48-38 during that stretch.

Hill was 1-for-4 and London was 1-for-3 in the period. For the night, Hill made 7-of-14 shots from the field and London was 5-of-17 to finish with 17 and 15 points, respectively.

“They played very physical and tough defense,” coach Gary Hendrix said. “They’re extremely athletic.”

Muldrow coach Randy Martin said his defensive strategy was to limit Hill and London.

“Those are two outstanding players,” he said. “You can never completely shut them down, but we were able to keep them from having the kind of games like they’ve had this season. We tried to stay on them really tight and make them work hard for everything.”

“They were just real quick with good hands,” Hill said. “They had a lot of pressure and it was something you can’t get used to. It was just hard to get around those guys.”

Zach Lindley and Ned Adair added 14 and 13 points, respectively, for the Tigers.

The Bulldogs (20-8) were led by Colton Keith’s 23 points, 15 of that in the second half. Nate Hamilton had 21, 17 of that in the first half. Dominic Blue added 13.
