EHS cagers welcome Lawton

ENID, Okla. — Mother Nature could hold the key to tonight’s scheduled Lawton at Enid basketball game at the Enid Event Center.

The girls game is scheduled to tip off at 6:30 p.m., followed by the boys at approximately 8 p.m.

Lawton didn’t have school Monday after a massive snowstorm hit southwestern Oklahoma. The weather forecast had up to eight inches coming to the Enid area Monday night and this morning.

“It doesn’t look real good right now, but you never know about the weather,’’ said Pacers head coach Robb Mills. “Sometimes it doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do. We have to prepare like we’re going to play.’’

The No. 16 Pacers (12-5) are riding a four-game winning streak after beating Ponca City 59-38 on Friday.

Lawton (11-7) is ranked No. 19.

“They have been getting progressively better,’’ Mills said of the Lady Wolverines. “They are playing a more uptempo style which suits them better. We have a good chance to win, but it won’t be as easy as it was last year (when EHS swept Lawton 57-44 and 37-17).

With the final polls (which determine regional seeds) coming out next week, the game becomes even more important for the Pacers.

“We definitely have to take care of business,’’ Mills said.

The Pacers did that at Ponca City in front of a rowdier-than-usual homecoming crowd on High Steppers Night.

“They had a lot more people than normal in the gym,’’ Mills said. “I was happy with how the girls responded. They didn’t let it affect them too much.’’

Andi Pierce scored 20 points to raise her average to 14.4 for the season. Haven Bay had 19 to raise her average to 11.7.

Meanwhile, he Plainsmen (2-15) will try to bounce back from a 68-44 loss at Ponca City last week.

The Wolverines (10-8) are coming off a 61-56 loss to Lawton MacArthur.

Both teams have recent losses to Lawton Eisenhower — the Wolverines 69-51 and the Plainsmen 62-39.

The two schools were originally scheduled to meet Nov. 22. That game was set back by Lawton’s participation in the football playoffs.

Braden Rogers leads the Plainsmen attack with a 10.8 average.

Both games can be heard on KGWA Radio (960 AM).
