Carl Albert 50,
The Lady Chicks started off well and led 3-2 early, but a 7-0 run jettisoned Carl Albert.
Chickasha (2-6 overall, 3-3 in the Suburban Conference) went through phases of playing solid defense, but struggled to get the ball through the net.
"We knew this was going to be a tough basketball for us," Chickasha coach Christy Edelen said. "Carl Albert is one of the top teams in 5A year in and year out. Coming here and playing after having three and a half weeks off, that is tough. Overall, I was really happy that we were still in the ball game at halftime."
The Lady Titans (3-3, 2-1) were in front 26-12 at halftime and outscored the Lady Chicks 24-9 in the second half.
Sierra Hamilton led the Lady Chicks with 10 points.
Toni Cheadle and Gioya Carter led Carl Albert with 16 and 11 points respectively.
"We struggled offensively, but defensively, I thought we stepped up, " Edelen said. "We got to finish our defense better with rebounds, but I do think we're going to be okay. We just got to work on our offense, but that's going to come."
The Lady Chicks take on Douglass in the first round of their own Chickasha Bank & Trust Basketball Classic at 11:30 a.m. Thursday. It will be a rematch of their 55-43 loss to the Lady Trojans last month in the second round of the Millwood Tournament in Oklahoma City.
