Pitt 8 Tournament, Day 6

Cowgirls and Warriors win

(Continued)

McALESTER —

“We talked about getting a hand in their face, moving your feet, Bryer rotating, and when Bryer rotates, everybody rotates down to protect the goal,” Hull said. “Blocking out, giving them one shot, and being patient on offense.”

Kaleb Wilson again pulled the Hornets to within 3, scoring a layup, drawing a foul and sinking the free throw early in the fourth. But after both teams missed on their next possession, Tiger took an inbounds pass from Hart and knocked down a 3-pointer.

Tiger led the Warriors with 19 points, hitting three 3-pointers during the game.

“I just remembered to keep my distance,” Tiger said. “Just all around play better, dribble better and be more alert, because they were almost as quick as me.”

A free throw from Lawrence and a layup from Wilson again cut the lead to 3, then a turnover led to a layup by Sam Mitchell that made it a 1-point game. Though benched the entire first quarter for disciplinary reasons, according to Stuart coach Darrick Farriell, regular starting guards Wilson (17 points), Lawrence (9) and Mitchell (6) combined for 32 points.

Tyler Dunagan went 0-for-2 at the foul line on Stuart’s next possession. But while Haileyville missed its next shot, on the following possession Hart found Stites in the low post for a layup, foul and free throw to push the lead back to 4,

Stites later scored off a pass from Mayo with 1:05 left in the game. Stites finished with 15 points, Mayo with 7.

“That was a momentum-changer,” Stites said of his final baskets. “I was crying right there. I just didn’t want to show it.”

Dunagan drew a foul on Stuart’s next possession, but he went 1-for-2. Wilson then got a steal, but he also went 1-for-2, making it 55-52 Haileyville with 34 seconds left in the game.

Stuart fouled Stites with 12.6 seconds left. Stites missed his first shot of a 1-and-1, giving the Hornets one last chance to tie the game.
