PIT: Pryor stymies Vinita late


PRYOR, OK — Collinsville edges Adair in OT

PRYOR — Collinsville needed extra time to send Adair to its fourth loss in five games, a 58-55 setback Tuesday in the Pryor Invitational.

Adair (7-5) was hot-and-cold in the first half. The Warriors started on a 16-4 run fueled by Jereme McCollum's three treys — he had five in the game — but went scoreless for the next nine minutes.

By the time Bo Rogers nailed a trey with 1:58 to go before halftime, the Cardinals had scored 20 straight points and taken a 24-16 lead.

Greg Oxford knocked down two big go-ahead 3s in the fourth quarter, the first with 7:25 to go to give Adair its first lead since 16-14. His second, with 2:12 on the clock, gave Adair a 50-48 edge.

Rogers knocked down a trey of his own to put Adair up 53-51 inside of two minutes, but with 29 seconds to go, Collinsville's Shawn Kocheski tied the game with a layup to send the game to extra time.

Blake Burd scored all five Cardinal points in the extra session, including the go-ahead conventional three-point play. The Warriors had a chance to tie with 2.9 seconds on the clock but their inbounds pass was intercepted.

Collinsville's Kanyon Cole led all scorers with 19 points. Kocheski added 16 and Burd scored 13.

Oxford's 18 points paced Adair, while McCollum poured in 17. Rogers scored 15, including four 3-pointers.

Adair will face Locust Grove Friday. An Adair win would mean a three-way tie in Pool B, but a Locust Grove win would send the Pirates to the title game and the Warriors to the fifth-place game.

Lady Warriors win sixth in a row

PRYOR — Keni Lippe notched another double-double Tuesday to help Adair drub Collinsville, 56-27, in Pryor Invitational action at the Burdick Center.

The talented freshman scored 19 points, pulled down 10 rebounds and swiped four steals as the Lady Warriors (13-1) blew past Collinsville in the second half. Adair stole the ball seven times in the third quarter and 13 times in the game.

Lippe and Co. blazed to a 22-6 lead after one quarter but managed just five in the second quarter to head to the locker room up 27-13.

Lippe and junior Kylie Looney paced Adair in the second half, combining for 15 points to shut down the Class 5A No. 5 Lady Cardinals.

Looney finished with 14 points and four boards. Bailey Stephens added nine points.

Mallory Vaughn was the lone Lady Cardinal in double-figures, with 10. She also joined Lippe in the double-double club with a game-best 11 rebounds.

The loss sends Collinsville to the fifth-place game Saturday. Adair and Locust Grove will battle for a title-game spot Friday.
