Lady Longhorns wrap up title

Roff —      Asher managed to keep this game close early on and the Lady Indians were even at 10-all, when the explosion occurred.

     Stonewall finished out the opening period with three consecutive 3-point baskets, then scored another at the outset of the second period to make it a 24-10 lead in the early seconds of the second period.

     Stonewall's quickness and outside pressure on Asher's 3-point shooters kept the Indians in a hole most of the game.

     SHS 3-pointers by Kimberly Helms, Haley Snell and Tana Davis to end the first period, followed by another trey by Snell early in the second, were too much for Asher, which trailed by 11 at the half, 31-20.

     For the night, Stonewall would hit six of its seven 3-point attempts, though the Lady Longhorns stopped shooting them in the third period.

     By the end of three, the Lady Longhorns were in command, 42-29.

     Stonewall coach Brian Davis also knew he had several of his taller players in foul trouble, so, to play it safe, he ordered his team into a delay game in the fourth period, holding Asher scoreless while scoring just three points itself for a 45-29 decision in the girls championship game of the 2012 Pontotoc Conference Tournament.

     Speaking of the quiet final period, Davis said it would have been "their (Asher's) big against our smalls."

     Stonewall tried to lure Asher by pulling its zone out, but when gaps opened near the basket, the Lady Longhorns had trouble taking advantage at times.

     Asher had little choice but to remain in its zone defense against the much quicker Stonewall, but the Lady Indians were only able to get off three shots from the field in the final eight minutes.

     Asher did have another good night from the foul line, hitting 11-of-14 shots. Stonewall hit four of its nine foul shots for 44 percent. From the field, Stonewall hit 45 percent of its 38 shots, while Asher was connecting on eight of its 19 field goals for 42 percent.

     Stonewall won for the eighth time in nine games this season.

  • 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.
