Barrios’ free throws cap Lady Jets’ 79-77 win

ENID, Okla. — Staff reports

Kori Barrios was fouled on a three-pointer with five seconds left, hitting two of three free throws to give the Northern Oklahoma College Enid Lady Jets a 79-77 win over Cowley County, Kan., Thursday at the Mabee Center.

The late foul shots gave NOC Enid the lead for good after an eight-point lead with four minutes left turned into a nip-and-tuck affair when Cowley County — the Jayhawk Conference favorite — deadlocked the game at 77-77 with 18 seconds left.

After Barrios gave the Lady Jets a lead, Cowley County (2-1) nearly stunned NOC Enid at the buzzer, when what would have been a game-winning runner from 25 feet rimmed out.

“It was too close,” said NOC Enid head coach Scott Morris.

The win was a notable benchmark for the Lady Jets (3-1), who are quickly picking up where last season’s 24-8 team left off, despite having 14 freshman on the roster.

“It was a really good showdown,” Morris said. “It’s a barometer of our potential. With so many freshmen, our window is pretty wide. It’s exciting how quickly these freshman are developing and getting college experience.”

Breck Clark finished with a game-high 22 points, followed by Barrios and Kiara Moore’s 15 for the Lady Jets, who play in the Coffeyville Classic next weekend.

JETS 98, COWLEY COUNTY 61

Ben Berry and Daryk Jones shared game-high honors with 15 points apiece, and the Northern Oklahoma College Enid Jets flew by visiting Cowley County, Kan., 98-61, Thursday at the Mabee Center.

The Jets took their first double-digit lead five minutes into the opening half, and never let up, taking a 49-21 lead at half before 12 players eventually hit the scoresheet to reach the final margin.

“We finally put together a solid defensive perfomance,” said assistant coach Drew Bridges. “We’ve still got a long way to go as a far as playing a good 40 minutes on that side of the floor. We don’t have any problems scoring.”

Jovan Crnic added 15 points for the Jets (4-0) who visit Rhema Bible on Monday.

    Luke Wakamatsu has heard the question before.
    The shortstop for DBAT Gallegos, the thus-far still unblemished frontrunner in the Connie Mack South Plains Regional, doesn’t exactly have a common last name. And his dad doesn’t exactly have a common resume, either.
