Senior guard Nathan Beene's 18.5 points per game leads the team, and all five starters average at least three rebounds per game, led by Bryan Lewis (6.1) and Trent Troxell (5.7).
“We've got good offensive players, but we try to stress defense,” coach Scott Hines said. “We feel like our defense separates us. We stress that and the kids buy into it.”
Fort Cobb-Broxton faces Okarche in the first round of state at 2 p.m. Thursday at Choctaw.
BERNEY BOYS GET IT DONE FOR MCGUINNESS
Bishop McGuinness' Ethan Berney has been one of the best table-setters in soccer the last two seasons. The senior doesn't plan to take a step back this year, especially now that he gets to play with younger brother, Alex.
The two got off to a good start at the Chickasha Tournament last weekend. The Irish lost to Lawton MacArthur but were able to pick up wins against Duncan and Chickasha.
In the 4-1 win against the Demons, the Berney boys either scored or assisted on all four goals.
The Irish are trying to replace seven starters from a group that made the state quarterfinals last year. McGuinness hosts OKC Dove Science tonight.
DORRELL BOUNCES BACK FOR THIRD
Friday night was not the outcome Del City wrestler Tray Dorrell was hoping for. After being the runner-up the last two years, Dorrell was hoping to close his career with a championship at 112 pounds.
It didn't happen as Dorrell lost in the semifinals. However, despite not having a chance for a championship, Dorrell responded well Saturday.
Dorrell won both of his matches to close out his career with a third-place finish. In the consolation championship, Dorrell earned a major decision.
