“Daniela does everything for us,” Young said. “She's what opens everything else up.
“As you can tell tonight, she did all of the scoring. The girls depend on her; they're capable of doing it, but they just rely on her.”
Galindo finished with 23 points and 19 rebounds. She also scored 30 points in the Indians' quarterfinals win against Red Oak.
THIRD TIME NOT THE CHARM
For Hammon senior standouts Kori Barrios and Peyton Walker, it was their third straight trip to the state tournament that ended short of a state title.
The Lady Warriors lost in the state championship game the past two years and were defeated by Lomega in the state semifinals Friday night.
“It's just disappointing,” Hammon coach Lance Carpenter said. “It's a heartbreaker, is what it is. We were so close.
“It hurt them, Kori, Peyton and Erin (Burch) are such great competitors, that's not the way they wanted to go out. They wanted a gold ball, but they had great careers.”
START AND SCORE
If you want to know where the points are going to come from in Saturday's Class A boys championship game between Weleetka and Glencoe, keep an eye on the 10 guys on the court when the game starts.
All 72 of Glencoe's points came from its five starters in Friday's semifinal victory over Sterling. And all but two of Weleetka's 60 points in its win over Fort Cobb-Broxton came from the starting lineup.
FATHERS AND SONS
The small-school state tournament often turns into a family event on the court, and that was the case in Friday's Class A boys semifinal between Glencoe and Sterling.
Each coach had two of his sons playing for him.
Glencoe's John Lazenby coached sons Ty and Jake to victory against Sterling coach Bink Woolbright, who had sons Ty and Trevyn playing for him.
