Private schools POW: Dalton Newsome, MSM...
By Robert Przybylo
First full week of the basketball season, and a couple of the private school teams really went after it Saturday night in a matchup between Oklahoma Christian and Mt. St. Mary’s.
Paced by Dalton Newsome, the Rockets got the best of the Saints 53-45 on the road. MSM also went on the road Friday night at Lexington and picked up a 75-61 victory.
It took a second half comeback by the Rockets to get past OCS. The Saints held a four-point lead at halftime, but MSM outscored ‘em 33-21 in the second half.
Newsome scored 17 while Vincent Mason added 14 in the win. Mason was also the game’s high scorer Friday at Lexingoton. Newsome’s big showing is enough to win the Private Schools Player of the Week.
Tough to go on the road to start the season, but Lenny Hatchett’s team has done that right now. Couple of big victories in someone else’s gym. Possible they could get another as MSM is at Heritage Hall on Tuesday.
Cara Pugh and Caroline Cameron, Bishop McGuinness: Pugh came up huge in a blowout win against Ardmore on Friday while Cameron duplicated the effort in an easy win against Northwest Classen on Saturday.
