It hasn't been often this season that all three of Southmoore's outside shooters have been on in the same game.
Thursday night, though, Cyndi Campbell, Kyra Gilbert and Kayla Tucker were each hitting from deep and the result was a 68-46 win over Lawton in the opening round of the John Nobles Invitational Tournament at Moore High.
The SaberCats hit nine 3-pointers combined, all but one coming from the trio as Class 6A No. 4 Southmoore advanced to play Choctaw at 7 p.m. Friday in the semifinals.
“We've had a lot of games when two of us were hitting but not many like that when we're all hitting those shots,” Tucker said. “When that's happening, we're very dangerous.”
Choctaw needed double overtime to beat Tahlequah 65-60 in its opening-round game.
Four Southmoore starters finished in double figures, with Tucker leading the way with 15.
Campbell added 13, Serithia Hawkins 12 and Gilbert 11.
When Southmoore missed, it dominated on the boards, outrebounding the Wolverines 39-27.
Hawkins had 15 rebounds, including seven in the first quarter.
“Rebounding is key for us,” Southmoore coach Britney Kannady-Sayes said. “We came in on a bit of shooting slump from the other night so we knew we had to rebound well.
“We snapped out of that slump a bit though.”
CLARK DOMINANT FOR DALE
Dale's Breck Clark outscored Class A No. 18 Davenport by herself, scoring 31 points in the Pirates' 61-21 blowout to advance to the finals of the Tri-County Tournament at Oklahoma Baptist.
“We got off to kind of a slow start early and she kind of got us going in the second quarter,” Dale coach Josh Forsythe said. “She was really attacking the basket.”
Clark was 12 of 14 from the free-throw line.
Class 2A No. 2 Dale (17-1) will take on Earlsboro in Saturday night's championship game.
Clark also had five rebounds and three steals.
VOGT POWERS OKARCHE
Led by Morgan Vogt, Okarche took control early and held off Clinton for a 60-41 win in the first round of the Buckle of the Wheatbelt Invitational at Kingfisher.
Three Okarche players scored in double-figures, led by Vogt with 23. Madison Lee had 16 and Kenadey Grellner had 14 for the Warriors, ranked No. 1 in Class A.
Okarche will take on Bethany in the semifinals at 7 p.m. Friday. Bethany defeated host Kingfisher 61-43 behind 25 points from Grace Hadley and 16 from Megan Branscum.
IVEN LIFTS STILLWATER
Austyn Iven's 28 points helped Stillwater to a 60-53 overtime win over El Reno in the Shawnee Invitational.

Shawnee, McAlester and Tulsa Edison also won in the first round.
