Lexington edges Konawa in overtime

Konawa — Lexington picked a fine time to hit a few free throws.

The Lady Bulldogs had struggled mightily for most of the game from the charity stripe, but scored their first four points of overtime from the free throw line to turn back the Konawa Lady Tigers 38-33 in a first-round squeaker Thursday evening at the 2014 Konawa Invitational.

Konawa struggled to get shots off during the later stages of regulation and most of the overtime period, committing turnover after turnovers before finally finishing with 30 overall — 17 of which came in the second half.

The host led by one, 24-23, heading into a see-saw fourth quarter.

Konawa got its last lead in the contest when freshman Mahaley Larney scored on a nice inside move to put KHS ahead 26-25.

Lexington led by three when Karena Karges hit a tough baseline jumper with just under three minutes to play in the fourth quarter. But another Konawa freshman, starting post player Roshawn Warrior, sparked the Lady Tigers down the stretch. She spent most of the second half on the bench after picking up her fourth foul at the 6:31 mark of the third quarter. But she hit two key baskets in the fourth quarter — the last after a nice entry pass from Danielle Khoury that got Konawa within 31-30 with exactly two minutes left.

Karges, who had drained two huge 3-pointers in the third quarter to help rally Lexington from a nine-point deficit, made a free shot with 44.3 ticks left to put Lexington in front 32-30.

After a timeout, Brittany West got free in the paint to knot the score at 32-all. Taylor Hamm missed a 3-pointer from the far baseline as time was running out in regulation, resulting in the overtime session.

There was no score in the OT period until Beth Sullivan hit one free throw at the 1:52 mark and another at the 1:18 mark.

  • Whitworth resets Ada's 3-point record

    As senior Walker Whitworth was bombing in the final five 3-point shots of his remarkable Ada High career, he was resetting the school’s triples record at 151. Across the way at the A-Town Barber Shop, barber Erick Gray did not even know he owned the record of 146, much less that someone was breaking it.
