Chicks will remember the Titans



Carl Albert 50,

Chickasha 21

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.

  • Durant scores 24 as Thunder beat Rockets

    OKLAHOMA CITY — Coach Scott Brooks struck a chord to get the Oklahoma City Thunder playing better together on offense.
    He told his players that all they had to do to earn a day off was get 20 assists against the Houston Rockets.
    The plan worked so well that Kevin Durant and some of the Thunder's other starters started their time off a little early.

    STILLWATER — Oklahoma State's surprising rise to Big 12 championship contender has a common thread with a similar run by Kansas three seasons ago: defensive coordinator Bill Young.

  • Durant, Westbrook lead Thunder over Blazers in OT

    PORTLAND, Ore. — After two straight losses — one to Utah at home and another to the Los Angeles Clippers the night before — the Oklahoma City Thunder weren't going to give up against the Portland Trail Blazers.
    Shaking off their fatigue, the Thunder overcame a double-digit second-half deficit to beat the Blazers 107-106 in overtime on Thursday night.
    Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook each had 28 points and 11 rebounds in the victory.
    "We needed it a lot," said Durant. "It's kind of like a monkey off our back once the buzzer ended it. It's a good win for us."
