BETHANY – Adair’s Kylie Looney scored 21 points as top-ranked Adair blasted Hugo, 45-28, in the first round of the Class 3A girls state tournament Thursday night at Southern Nazarene University.

“Kylie is a salty player,” Adair coach Scott Winfield said of his star guard, who leads the team in scoring averaging 18 points per game.

Hugo didn’t make a basket against the Warriors’ starters in the fourth period. The Buffaloes Ray’Shee Smith finally converted a steal and basket with 1:23 left in the game against the Adair reserves for Hugo’s first basket of the period.

The Warriors led only 20-17 at halftime but outscored the Buffaloes 25-11 in the second half.

Adair coach Scott Winfield said he stressed defense to his team at halftime.

“Early on I thought I thought we gave up too many easy buckets, putbacks,” he said.

Keni Jo Lippe added 11 points for Adair. Torri Tarkington led Hugo with 12.

Adair improved to 27-1 season. No. 8 Hugo ended its season at 21-6.

Adair meets No. 9 Heritage Hall, which upset No. 5 Sequoyah-Tahlequah, 39-35, earlier Thursday night, in the semifinals at 6:30 p.m. Friday at Southern Nazarene University.
