Byng stings Konawa twice


Konawa —

A free throw and jumper by Snow got Konawa within 30-29, but Byng followed with another 3-pointer from Smith and a Capps lay-in after splitting a double team.

Snow completed an old-fashioned three-point play to make it 35-32, but Reid Wall scored on another fast-break bucket to give Byng its 37-32 halftime advantage.

Bohan would lead a group of nine Byng players who reached the scoring column with 13 points to go with a team-high seven rebounds. Reid Wall added 10 points and five boards, while Nemecek had 10 points to go with four rebounds and three steals. Smith hit 3-of-6 triples to add nine points for Byng. Gage Wall and Capps each contributed seven points for the Pirates.

Konawa's 6-7 post player, Branden Davis, followed Snow’s 21 points with 14 points and six rebounds. Silas Larney just missed double figures with eight.


Byng 51, Konawa 32

Konawa led 6-2 early, and the game was knotted at 10-all after two free throws by Cheyenne Galimba with just 32.8 seconds left in the opening period.

Asya Tims scored on a baseline drive for Byng to end the quarter with the visitors clinging to a 12-10 lead.

The Lady Pirates went from a zone to a man-to-man defense, and the adjustment worked well. After hitting 4-of-6 field goals in the first quarter, Konawa made just 1-of-6 shots in the second period and committed seven turnovers.

“I was a little disappointed in our defense in the first quarter. We started with our zone, which we’ve been pretty good in, and we didn’t play with a lot of energy and discipline in it,” said Byng head coach Matt Fike. “But from the second quarter on, we went back to our man defense, and our energy got better and were a lot more consistent being where we needed to be.”
