Kieley Clift scored 14 points, Sierra Hamilton scored 13, Taylor Sylvester had six, Brooklin Burns scored five, and Kelsi Gore added two.

Chickasha had 40 team rebounds in the game.

The Lady Chicks won't play again until Jan. 29 at El Reno, getting some time off while the Chickasha boys play in the Shortgrass Invitational tournament in Altus this week.

The Chickasha boys team also beat Durant on Friday night, winning 64-43 over No. 25 Durant. The Fightin' Chicks are 7-5 this season.

Chickasha is scheduled to play Lawton MacArthur at 3:30 p.m. Thursday in the first round of the 41st annual Clester Harrington Shortgrass Invitational in Altus.
