He finished with 16 points on 5 of 8 shooting with six assists and no turnovers.

Against fourth-ranked Bellarmine two days later, Provo repeated the feat. His 3-pointer with 7.1 seconds left, from nearly the same spot on the court, put the Saints up by four points in an eventual 69-64 win. The victory was Maryville's first over a ranked opponent.

Provo scored 19 points on 8 of 15 shootings in that win.

YOST COMMITS TO SAM HOUSTON STATE

Offensive lineman Ryne Yost, who moved from Elk City to Lawton for his senior season, committed to Sam Houston State after a weekend visit.

Yost earned Oklahoman first-team All-State honors this season after grading out at 90 percent at left tackle.

Sam Houston State, back-to-back FCS runners-up, has had success recruiting the state in recent years.

Former Midwest City running back Timothy Flanders, former Norman North tight end K.J. Williams and former Lawton offensive lineman Brandon Dewitt are on the Bearkats' roster.

Yost's commitment was first reported by ESPN.com.

TURNEY WINS 600TH GAME

Burlington coach Randy Turney won his 600th game as a boys high school basketball coach Saturday night in a 41-31 win over Buffalo for third place in the Cherokee Tournament.

This is Turney's 31st season coaching boys basketball, compiling a 600-241 record with eight state tournament appearances.

Including his time as a girls coach, Turney is in his 34th year as a head coach. He had a record of 173-45 with three state tournament appearances with girls teams.

BEENE OFF TO STRONG START

Achille guard Austin Beene's 45-point performance last week was only a glimpse of the type of season the 6-foot-3 guard has been having.

His 45-point, 10-rebound outing in a loss to Victory Life last week represented the most points scored by an Achille player in 60 years.

For the season, Beene has been just as solid. He's averaging 28.5 points, 11.5 rebounds and four assists per game.

As a sophomore two years ago, Beene came off the bench on Fort Cobb-Broxton's 2011 state championship team that was led by his brother, Nathan Beene. He relocated after his father was hired as the superintendent at Achille.
