Chiefs girls, Dover boys post wins

WAUKOMIS, Okla. —  After a sloppy first quarter put the Lady Chiefs in a 7-6 hole, Waukomis girls basketball coach Matt Cue challenged his five seniors,

Apparently the message was loud and clear.

Sadie Perry scored 21 points and Alexa Harris fought through wire-to-wire foul trouble to add 19, and the Lady Chiefs pulled away late to beat Dover 76-41 Tuesday.

“We have those days in us,” Cue said. “I don’t know why, but sometimes we just get overconfident thinking we can step out on the floor and win a ball game just because we’re Waukomis … They’ve got the ability to go play and win a lot of ball games, and they have been winning a lot of ball games, but it seems like they just kind of coast until you really get ripping on them, then they pick it up.”

When the Lady Chiefs did “pick it up” on Tuesday, it didn’t take long to put away the visiting Lady Longhorns.

Perry scored 16 of her 21 points in the second quarter, shooting five-for-nine from the floor and hitting all five free throws in the frame to give Waukomis a 27-24 lead.

“I have those nights where it’s really good, and nights where it’s really bad,” said Perry, whose 21 points were one shy of her career high. “I guess tonight was one of those really good nights.”

After being whistled for her third personal foul with less than seven minutes gone in the first quarter, Harris returned in the third to score 16 of her own, shooting a perfect five-for-five from the field and the line.

“(Cue) has to make me mad to get me to come out to play,” Harris said. “He did that, and I came out and did what I should have done in the first quarter and the second quarter.”

After turning the ball over 13 times in the first half — eight of them in the opening quarter — Waukomis had only three giveaways in the second half, forcing 14 Dover turnovers and outscoring the Lady Longhorns 47-17 in the final two quarters.

“Things started clicking,” Perry said. “Sometimes they just don’t really click, and they did eventually. But we’re going to have to start working on getting there at the beginning of the game and not have to get yelled at.”

Nicole Johnson scored 13 for Dover (3-5), and Alex Beck added 11.

Kysha Eck scored seven of her 11 in the final frame and Kaity Kokojon added seven for the Lady Chiefs (6-2), who visit Morrison on Friday.

  • 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.

    For ex-Oklahoma State star Rickie Fowler, this is getting downright familiar.
    He’s not complaining.
