Ada girls dispose of Lady Demons

Duncan — Class 4A's sixth-ranked Ada Lady Cougars wasted little time in dismantling the Duncan Lady Demons 76-26 on the road Tuesday night. 

The Lady Cougars led 18-6 at the end of the first quarter, fueled by Aaliyah Blakely's 4-of-4 shooting from the field and a stymieing defense that forced six turnovers. Blakely would finish with 13 points on perfect 6-of-6 shooting to go with six rebounds, three steals and an assist.

The Lady Cougars widened the margin in the second quarter, outscoring Duncan 22-2 to take a 40-8 halftime lead to the locker room.

Ada head coach Christie Jennings unloaded the bench in the second half, as the Lady Cougars played 15 different players in the contest. Ada outscored the Lady Demons 36-18 over the final two quarters.

Olivia Wells added 11 points and two blocks, and freshman Anelí Thomsen hit double figures with 10.

Markeisha Black, who also had a steal and an assist, and Devanee Simmons had seven points apiece, followed by Haley Dean and Payton Taylor with six. Taylor had four rebounds, while Haley Dean finished with four steals and five assists.  Sami Jewett and Meneé Thomsen added five points each.  

McKenzie Dean and Brittany Prince rounded out the scoring with four and two points, respectively. Prince, Dembri Weeks and Maddie Jessepe each had a rebound. 

The Lady Cougars finished 9-of-14 from the charity stripe and dished out 18 assists in the game.

“It was a good win,” said Jennings. “With as crazy as the weather has been, we were glad to have the opportunity to get to play tonight.  It was a good game to get all 15 players solid minutes. We got a chance to work on zone defenses that we normally don't run. This could help us later on down the road.”

The Lady Cougars run their record to 16-4. They travel to Harrah Friday night to take on the Class 4A No. 3 Lady Panthers. Harrah won the first meeting between the two teams in Ada two weeks ago by a slim 47-42 margin. The Lady Cougars return home next Monday night for Senior Night to take on the Shawnee Lady Wolves, ranked No. 1 in Class 5A.

The Lady Cougars will host a Class 4A District matchup with McLoud on Feb. 22.

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.
