Wins don't get much sweeter than this.

The Ada High School girls basketball team turned back Kingston 66-53 to open "Live Like Wyatt" night Friday inside the Cougar Activity Center.

Then, the Ada High boys basketball team — missing Wyatt Ezekiel Brown from the starting lineup — held off the Redskins 49-47 for a dramatic victory over their own.
