SKIATOOK — Two years ago, Broken Arrow’s perfect start to the season ended with an overtime loss in the Skiatook Invitational semifinals.

The Class 6A No. 9 Tigers avoided history repeating Friday night, but they needed three extra periods to extend their best record at the start of a season.

Jaiell Talley’s go-ahead basket with 47 seconds left in the third OT propelled the Tigers past 4A No. 5 Webster 79-77 at the Brooks Walton Activity Center.

“It was a real good win for us,” Broken Arrow sophomore forward Anthony Allen said. “We played with a lot of heart and pulled through, but it shouldn’t have been that close.”

Broken Arrow (11-0) advances to play 6A No. 11 Edmond North, a 57-55 winner over Owasso, in the title game at 8:30 p.m. Saturday.

Allen and George McCurdy had 15 points each to lead Broken Arrow. They scored most of their points after the third quarter.

Webster led by 10 in the third quarter and was up 52-44 before Broken Arrow went on a 12-4 run, capped by three-point plays by McCurdy and Allen to tie it at 56 with 2:14 left in the fourth.

”Those fired us up,” Allen said.

Martwon Taylor’s layup plus 1-of-2 free throws regained the lead for the Warriors, 59-56. Allen and Webster’s Tojuan Pryor then traded two free throws before Allen’s three-point play tied it at 61 with 24 seconds left. Pryor’s 3-pointer rimmed out as time expired in regulation. Allen scored 12 in the fourth quarter.

“Hats off to Anthony Allen,” Tigers coach Beau Wallace said. “He played his tail off until he fouled out (in the second OT).”

Broken Arrow’s Tyler Pinder had a tying 3 late in the first OT. At the end of the second OT, the Tigers tied it at 72 on Simon Blair’s basket on a power move with 47 seconds left. The Warriors played for the last shot, but Anthony Pritchard’s 3 narrowly missed.

In the third OT, Isaiah Sanders’ 3 with 1:01 left gave Webster a 77-76 lead, but Talley scored 14 seconds later. McCurdy made 1-of-2 free throws with 24 seconds left, but Talley’s steal on the ensuing possession sealed the win for Broken Arrow.

“Webster deserved to win the game,” Wallace said. “They outplayed us in all facets. We turned the ball over way too many times. But I’m proud of our guys, they battled and found a way to win.

”We needed a game like this. To go three overtimes and see yourself come out on top, that does a lot for your confidence.”

Sanders led Webster (10-4) with 19 points and Pritchard scored 17.

“I’m disappointed to blow a 10-point lead,” Webster coach Scott Bowman said. “Broken Arrow is a great team. We did a lot of things we shouldn’t have done, but we fought and never gave up. All three OTs were back-and-forth.

“There are no moral victories; we expected to win. We’ve just got to build on it.”

Edmond North 57 Owasso 55

Joell Wilson led Edmond North (8-3) with 19 points, including four 3-pointers in the second half. Kyler Mann paced Owasso (3-5) with 22 points. Landry Harris’ 3 gave the Huskies a 53-51 lead they never relinquished.

The loss snapped Owasso’s streak of eight consecutive appearances in the Skiatook title game. Owasso will face Webster in the third-place game at 5:30.

East Central 74 Skiatook 60

In a consolation bracket game, MyTjwuan Campbell led the 5A No. 6 Cardinals (7-3) back from an early nine-point deficit with 26 points in the final three quarters. Jayden Garner paced the Bulldogs (3-7) with 22 points.

“This tournament has so much competition,” said East Central coach Nate West, whose team lost 47-44 Thursday to Owasso. “It’s been a treat watching our kids compete and they are getting better because of this tournament. Our kids gave a lot to try and beat Owasso and it showed today in the first quarter. The first quarter today was the first time all year the other team was more aggressive than us. We play really, really hard and we did that the rest of the game.”
