CATOOSA — Edmond North junior Elizabeth Donhoe just needed to breathe. She said she was a little too excited, and it showed in the first quarter.
But once she got rolling, there was nothing to stop her or the Huskies. Paced by Donohoe, Edmond North cruised to a 53-42 win against Norman North in a Class 6A girls state basketball tournament quarterfinal Thursday night.
The Huskies play Norman on Friday night at 7:30 at the Mabee Center in the semifinals.
Donohoe was trying to force things too much in the first quarter and didn't score. Junior Anna Kimsey was there to pick up the slack, scoring eight of her 12 points in the first quarter.
"You have to give credit to the other girls. They found ways to contribute and kept us in our rhythm," Edmond North coach Kevin Korstjens said.
After a brief stay on the bench, Donohoe went to work, scoring 13 points in the second quarter as the Huskies took control of the game.
