Defending 4A state champion Anadarko had no trouble handling Edmond North and Edmond Memorial in the first two rounds of the Edmond Open, but Edmond Santa Fe was a different story.

“We tried a little junk defense at the first and obviously it didn't work real well,” Bass said. “We just went right back to our man and our spread which is what we hang our hat on.

“When she has the ball, she is a threat to shoot even if you are standing next to her. We made sure we got into her grill and her face.

“It's easy to sit back and let three-point shooters shoot, but if you make them have to drive all the time and run and move to get shots, they are going to get tired and that's what we saw.”

Santa Fe led 31-15 at halftime and 47-23 after the third quarter. Even though Santa Fe lost seven seniors to graduation last season, it doesn't appear the Lady Wolves (5-1) have fallen far.

“We just got athletes that know how to play the style we like, the run and gun and pressure defense,” Bass said. “We want steals so we can go score.”

Meanwhile, Zinn said the loss will benefit Anadarko (3-1) down the road.

“We lost to Shawnee last year in the finals of the Mid-America Tournament by about 20 and after that we started developing as a team. We didn't lose after that.

“Sometimes you need that one loss to toughen up your team and get them more focused in practice.”
