AYALA HITS SEVEN 3S IN WIN

Trey Ayala made seven 3-pointers and finished with 27 points to lead Westmoore to a 70-63 win over Norman North.

Ayala had 16 points in the second half. Teammate Dillon Thompson added 22 for the Jaguars, who improved to 13-6.

Kairo Rutledge led Norman North with 16 points.

JENNINGS BROTHERS POWER HARRAH

Harrah brothers Austin and Collin Jennings made Austin's final home game a special one, combining for 41 points to lead the Panthers to a 72-53 win over Shawnee.

Austin Jennings scored 22 and Collin added 21, and the brother duo had 25 of Harrah's 35 second-half points.

WOODARD SCORES 23 IN RETURN

Back from a severe hamstring injury, Jordan Woodard led Edmond Memorial with 23 points in a 73-59 win over Norman. Woodard, an Oklahoma signee, has missed games on two occasions because of the injury. Tyler Holcomb had 17 points and Shaquille Morris had 12 for second-ranked Edmond Memorial, which improved to 17-2.

DEL CITY'S CANNON BREAKS ARM IN LOSS

A strong second half lifted Southmoore to a 65-54 win over Del City, but the Eagles lost much more than the game. Junior guard Brett Cannon suffered a broken arm and will likely be out for the season. It's the second straight year that Cannon has suffered a broken bone in February.
