McALESTER — The McAlester Lady Buffaloes couldn’t beat the Durant Lady Lions with speed, so the Lady Buffs brought in more forwards.
With that extra size, the Lady Buffs went on the attack.
Three Lady Buffs forwards combined for 20 points, and Meredith Saunier drained a three-pointer with 32.8 seconds left to give McAlester a 44-39 win against Durant at Friday’s Homecoming game at Bob Brumley Gymnasium in McAlester.
With the win, McAlester improved to 9-10. Durant fell to 2-17.
