PIT: Pryor stomps Collinsville for third

PRYOR, OK — After a lackluster first half, Pryor head coach Russ Gilmore knew he had Collinsville right where he wanted them.

The Tigers came out of the locker room at halftime and took care of business, riding a 29-6 run to topple Collinsville 54-32 in the third-place game at the Pryor Invitational Saturday.

"We could tell that they were getting tired, and our kids were sensing that," Gilmore said. "We had a lot of pressure on them in the first half. We talked about that at the half, and we needed to run them really hard in the first three or four minutes of the third quarter."

Pryor (6-7) led the Cardinals by five after two quarters, but used its deep bench to wear down Collinsville in the second half.

Pryor's big run spanned the second, third and fourth quarters, breaking a 20-20 tie. Pryor allowed Collinsville just two third-quarter points while scoring 18 of their own. The Tigers outscored the Cards in the second half 27-10.

No one player led the charge for Pryor. Instead, active hands and clean defense set the tone for the Tigers.

Robert Ross was the top Tiger on the scoreboard, with 13 points and two steals. All-tournament player Anthony Martinez got the starting nod at guard and rewarded his coach with eight points and two swipes.

Ryan Ogg had a relatively quiet evening, scoring five points and pulling down seven rebounds, but his 23-point, 15-rebound outburst Friday against Vinita was enough to earn a spot on the all-tournament squad.

Kanyon Cole (seven points) and Shawn Kocheski (five points) were selected to the all-tourney team from Collinsville.

Collinsville deflects Tigerettes

PRYOR — Collinsville's Vaughn sisters, Madie and Mallory, combined for 18 points to help the Lady Cardinals top Pryor, 43-30, at the Pryor Invitational Saturday in a fifth-place game.

Senior forward Rachel Zumstein poured in game-high 10 points to lead the Tigerettes (0-12), who held vaunted Lady Cardinal freshman center Mallory Vaughn to eight points.

Mallory Vaughn was named to the All-tournament team, along with Pryor forward Alyissa Harry.

Sawyer Salisbury scored nine points, pulled in seven rebounds, collected five steals and assisted on three made baskets for Class 5A No. 5 Collinsville, which pulled away from Pryor with a 19-5 run during the second and third quarters.

Sammy Gordon racked up nine points and three rebounds for Pryor. Harry and teammate Hunter Gilstrap combined for eight points and eight steals.
