By Justin Harper, Staff Writer
Girls basketball notes from Friday’s action at the Oklahoma’s Best Tournament at Tulsa University’s Reynolds Center:
Sequoyah-Tahlequah winning streak snapped
Tulsa Washington defeated Sequoyah-Tahlequah Friday in the semifinals of the Oklahoma’s Best Tournament in Tulsa to advance to Saturday’s final against Sapulpa.
The loss snapped a 41-game winning streak for Sequoyah-Tahlequah, the three-time defending champion and top-ranked team in Class 3A. Tulsa Washington, ranked No. 1 in Class 5A, ended the Indians’ run with a 57-47 victory. The Hornets will meet 6A No. 1 Sapulpa in the 8:30 p.m. championship game at the Reynolds Center. Sapulpa knocked off Washington, ranked second in 3A, 65-40 in the other semifinal.
In what could be a preview of the 3A state final, Washington and Sequoyah-Tahlequah will square off in Saturday’s 7 p.m. consolation game.
Adair’s Luper injured again
Adair junior Kevi Luper, a member of the Oklahoman’s 2007 Super Five team as a sophomore, will miss five to six weeks after breaking a bone in her right arm Thursday night in an opening-round loss to Sapulpa.
Luper, who is being recruited by numerous Division I schools, had just recently returned to action after breaking a bone near her right wrist in June. The first break, which happened at the University of Oklahoma Team Camp, kept Luper sidelined for four months. The injury suffered Thursday, a distal radius hairline fracture about three and a half inches above the wrist, was not in the same place as the broken bone suffered in June.
