Plainsmen fall to Storm

MIDWEST CITY, Okla. — The Enid Plainsmen were held to their second-lowest scoring output of the season in a 60-41 loss to the home-schooled OKC Storm Friday at the Mid-Del Holiday Tournament.

Raeshaan Finley scored 11 points for Enid and reserve forward Corey Ganz added a career-high seven, but the Plainsmen couldn’t overcome a 27-17 halftime deficit after scoring as many in the first half Friday as they did in the first quarter Thursday against Midwest City.

The OKC Storm opened the third quarter with three straight baskets to lead 33-17, and Enid couldn’t score enough to close a gap widened when the Plainsmen switched to man-to-man pressure.

“You can’t give up 60,” said Enid coach Ryan Wilkinson. “If you’re giving up 60 in high school basketball, you’re gonna lose a lot of those games. All the games we’ve been in, they’ve been in the 50s, so we’ve got to get better defensively.”

Enid (0-7) plays its final game in the tournament at 10:30 a.m. today against 5A No. 11 Guthrie. Enid beat the Bluejays 51-49 on Dec. 3 in the team’s final scrimmage before the regular season.

  • Jeff Mullin mug 2012.jpg Rory McIlroy: There's a new tiger in town

    His father introduced him to the game when he was small, putting a golf club in his hand when he was barely past the toddler stage.
    He fell in love with it and worked hard, improving steadily. He became a terrific junior player and quickly improved.
    He was touted as the next big thing and didn’t disappoint.
    Now, at the tender age of 25, he is a multiple major champion.
    Tiger Woods? Yes, once upon a tee time. But now those words are being spoken about Rory McIlroy.

  • Fowler happy with runner-up finish

    For ex-Oklahoma State star Rickie Fowler, this is getting downright familiar.
    He’s not complaining.
    For the second time this summer, Fowler played in the final group of a major championship, failed to overcome a big deficit, and settled for the runner-up spot.

    The new-look Big 12 is ready for some football.  
    OK, the conference’s logo is what’s new this year. There are no changes in the makeup or format of the 10-team league, the only power conference with a round-robin schedule that determines a champion without an extra game.
