“That was the goal to make it a very uncomfortable afternoon, not let her have any free time to look around and do what she does because she's a good player,” said Fort Gibson coach Jerry Walker.

And that came with a little help from the boys basketball team, which allowed three players to practice with the girls this week.

“When they first got there we weren't making good passing decisions,” Palmer said. “So it helped us slow down and make better decisions all together.”

Palmer scored 17 points, while Glover scored 14 and Savannah Gray added 10.

Both teams combined for three lead changes in the first, but Fort Gibson never trailed after the first quarter.

Rylie Torrey and Macy Stark scored 10 points apiece for Weatherford, which ends the season 25-3.
