FGHS 60, LG 38

Brooke Palmer and the No. 2 Lady Tigers (22-0) are definitely ready for the playoffs.

The 5-foot-10 Palmer poured in a game-high 25 points to power the Lady Tigers to the win. She sank 8 of 14 shots from the field.

“We’ve gotten better but I think we can get better before we start the playoffs,” she said. “I’m really excited. I think we’ve been working well as a team right now. I want my team to depend on me.”

Jerry Walker, the Lady Tigers’ coach, can tell his team is gearing up for the postseason.

“In our last two games, I can see signs of the old Fort Gibson coming out,” he said. “That was a good Locust Grove team, but we got on them tonight.”

The Lady Tigers jumped out to a 19-2 lead in the first quarter and led 33-16 at halftime en route to the victory.

Madison Davis topped the Lady Pirates (12-10) with 14 points on 4 of 14 shooting from the field.
