NOTEWORTHY: A Latta turnover and an Atoka bucket at the buzzer lifted the host team over the Class 2A fifth-ranked Lady Panthers, 39-37, on Tuesday night. The loss overshadowed a double-double effort from Latta’s Nelaina Baker, who finished with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Krisha Young followed with nine points, including one 3-pointer, in a losing cause. Sydney Brinlee followed with seven points and five boards, and Shelbey Parnacher tossed in five points, including one trey, and four steals. However, the Lady Panthers shot just 28 percent from the field for the game. Class 3A 18-ranked Atoka was led by Shaylynn Bass’ game-high 16 points. Latta led 18-10 at halftime but was outscored by an 18-2 margin in the third quarter as Atoka led 26-20 heading into the final period. The Lady Panthers did manage to snatch a fourth-quarter lead, but they couldn’t hold on.

COACH’S QUOTE: “The third quarter killed us. We came out flat. We can’t have down time like we did in this game. I’m proud of the way we fought back in the fourth quarter, and we played some good defense,” — Latta head coach David Tinkler.

Record: Latta is 8-3
