Rare title sweep for Roff teams

Calvin — The Roff girls and boys basketball teams used stellar defensive efforts to sweep to a pair of Pontotoc Conference Tournament championships Saturday night in Calvin.

After Allen had trimmed a 14-point Roff lead to seven with 4:14 to play, the Lady Mustangs never scored again in the Lady Tigers’ 48-33 win.

In the boys’ game, No. 2 seed Asher kept pace with top seed Roff during the first half, but the Tigers outscored the Indians 29-14 over the final to frames to pull away for a 51-31 win.

Roff historian Bubba Tidwell said he doesn’t think Roff has ever won both Pontotoc Conference Tournament championships in the same year.

“I don’t know that they ever have,” Tidwell said when asked about the possibility. “I know that they haven’t since 1994, but I doubt it’s ever happened.” 


Roff 48, Allen 33

After Allen senior Sandra Howshar scored on a nice spin move near the basket midway through the fourth quarter, the Lady Mustangs went 0-for-4 with four turnovers the rest of the way. Roff would force 21 Allen turnovers in the contest.

“Our defense was exceptional. We played man defense the whole game and never got out of it,” Roff girls coach Blake Crawford said. “We did everything we talked about doing defensively.”

Roff outscored Allen 14-7 in the second quarter and led 28-20 at halftime. RHS post player Breecia Crawford scored 10 of her game-high 18 points during that run.

Lauren Trimmer, who finished with 10 points, hit a jumper and Crawford followed with a free throw at the 1:56 mark of the third quarter to extend the Roff lead to 38-24.

Howshar capped a 9-2 Allen surge that got the Lady Mustangs within striking distance, but the rally stopped there.

“We scored transition buckets, we hit shots, we ran through our sets well. We played well,” Crawford said.

Miranda Raney scored eight points to lead the Lady Mustangs. Charlea Leonard, who had scored 40 points during Allen’s first two tournament games, was limited to five points. She had just one field goal over the final three quarters.
