MIDWEST CITY— Forgan’s Chandler Bryer caught the opening tip, drove to the lane, drew a foul, and hit a layup.

Bryer completed a 3-point play with the ensuing free throw and the rout was on for the top-ranked Bulldogs, who cruised to a 78-40 win over Cave Springs in the first round of the Class B boys state tournament at Carl Albert on Thursday.

“It was really important to get out to an early lead,” said Forgan coach Todd Kerr. “Our main focus was to make them take tough shots and we did that, which went a long a ways toward us jumping ahead like that.”

Bryer’s opening play sparked a 19-0 run to being the game as Forgan held Cave Springs scoreless over the first 7 1/2 minutes. Bryer finished with 14 points, Jace Kerr added 13, and Trevin Lopez had 12 to lead a Forgan (27-1) team which had eight players score at least five points.

“The most important thing for us offensively is to have balance,” Kerr said. “We have it most nights, it’s not just one guy for us, and that was evident tonight.”

Cave Springs’ (23-3) Wyatt Coiner led all scorers with 20 points.

Forgan will play defending champion Arnett in the semifinals at State Fair Arena on Friday. Tip-off is set for 9 p.m.
