Kiefer won its Class 2A district game against Foyil on Saturday despite scoring only two points in the second quarter and three in the fourth. The Trojans, however, scored eight in overtime for a 41-36 victory.
"It was one of those deals where afterwards I still didn't know how we won the game," Kiefer coach Lense Ramey said on Sunday.
The Trojans won it with defense as they shut out Foyil in the fourth quarter.
"It was a rough shooting game and we played ugly, but we still did a good job on defense and got a win," Ramey said.
His freshman son, Lense Ramey, equalled his season scoring average with 18 points, including two clinching free throws with six seconds left in overtime. Sophomore point guard Trystin Edwards, who averages 10.1 points and 5.6 assists, also made two key free throws late in OT. Freshman Kyle Howard, who averages 11.7 points and 10.2 rebounds, had nine points.
Record night: Jenks' Jacob Seidel set a school record with 42 points in a 90-62 win over Sand Springs on Friday. The previous record of 41 was set by Brook Lister in a 1991 loss to Hale. Jenks coach Clay Martin was a sophomore on that Hale team.
"It's a small world," Martin said.
Destiny edges Wright: Destiny Christian defeated Wright Christian 64-61 for the Oklahoma Christian Schools Athletic Association title on Saturday in Oklahoma City. Greg Moses had 26 points and 12 rebounds for Wright, which is 20-8 and will compete in the National Association of Christian Athletics tournament Feb. 26-March 1 in Dayton, Tenn. Moses averaged 22 points and 12 rebounds in the tournament.
Wright's Moses, Matt Haymes and Nixon Brooks made the all-tournament team.
Moses, a senior, has more than 1,500 points, 1,100 rebounds, 350 steals, 350 assists and 230 blocks in his career.
Gunter reaches milestone: Coweta senior guard Ty Gunter surpassed 1,000 career points when he scored 16 in a win over Collinsville on Tuesday.
Inola prevails: Taylor Mootry's two free throws with six seconds left in overtime clinched Inola's 57-53 victory over Hilldale in a 4A district game Saturday. Hilldale sent the game into OT tied at 51 on Brad Campbell's two free throws with 11 seconds left. Casey Gill, who averages 9.7 points, led Inola with 15 points and Mootry scored 11. Inola will play Muldrow in a regional at Wagoner on Thursday.
