Pacers win 6th straight

Top Lawton 59-50 in overtime; Plainsmen fall 73-68 in double OT



Marcus Moore had 14 points, Braden Rogers 11 and Michael Majors 10, but it wasn’t enough for the Plainsmen.

The Wolverines outscored the Plainsmen 16-7 over the last 2:36 of the second overtime period to overcome a 61-57 deficit.

“There’s a lot of emotion that goes into games like this,’’ said Plainsmen head coach Ryan Wilkinson. “It’s a deep, emotional loss. We will have to do some big things to rebound from this for tomorrow. Fortunately, it’s Senior Night. It’s something extra to get up for.’’

The Plainsmen held a 48-42 lead with 3:20 left in regulation after a Moore layup off a turnover. Lawton, though, used a 9-2 run to go up 51-49 when Darryl Patterson scored off a turnover.

Enid, though, took a 53-51 lead when Majors hit the second of two free throws with 18.3 seconds left. Patterson made a layup with 2.6 seconds left to send it to the first overtime.

“We miscommunciationed on that play,’’ Wilkinson said. “We doubled out of a pass and we didn’t have good rotation. They (Lawton) played hard and got a good look to tie it up.’’

Moore sent the game to a second overtime when he got the ball back after his first shot was blocked. He drove in for a layup to tie the score at 57. Dallas Sealey missed a shot at the buzzer, which would have given the Wolverines the win.

Enid scored the first four points of the second overtime, but the lead didn’t hold up. Lawton used a 9-0 run to take a 66-61 lead which it didn’t relinquish.

The Plainsmen got to within two three times, the last being when Majors hit the second of two free throws with 21.6 seconds remaining to make it 70-68. Dorois Martin gave EHS a chance when he hit only one of two free throws with 16.7 seconds left, but EHS turned the ball over and Chris Jones made a layup with one second left for the final five-point margin.

“We just made a lot of silly mistakes,’’ Wilkinson said. “A lot of it is not understanding time and situations and taking care of the ball. We have a lot of guys who haven’t been there before in that situation. The more you’re in it, the better you’ll be, but we weren’t very good at it.’’

  • 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.
