second quarter, Adair beats Bears
TULSA - Brittany Reed had a double-double and Kevi Luper scored 21 points in her return to the lineup as the Adair Lady Warriors downed Pawnee 57-43 in the opening round of the Oklahoma’s Best Tournament Thursday.
Everything started out going Adair’s way as the Lady Warriors jumped out to a 11-0 lead, six points from Luper and five from Chelsey Stricklen. Pawnee didn’t score their first bucket until the 2:27 mark of the first quarter. At the end of the first, Adair led 11-4.
But Pawnee came alive in the second quarter, mostly behind the play of point guard Brittany Morgan, who had 15 points in the first half. The Lady Bears went on a 18-0 run that saw Adair look
completely out of sync.
“I guess we got the lead, and thought we didn’t have to play anymore,” said Adair Head Coach Scott Winfield. Winfield also pointed to Morgan who spurred on the Lady Bears. At the half, Pawnee led
26-17 and had led by as many as 11.
Adair came out looking like the team that started the game in the second half. Tasha Dove’s three-pointer gave Adair the lead back at 34-31, and the team didn’t look back from there. The Lady Warriors outscored Pawnee 19-5 in the third and 21-12 in the fourth. Adair held Morgan to only five points in the second half.
Reed had 10 points and 13 rebounds in the contest. She had several offensive rebounds in the second half during the Lady Warriors run to put the game away. Luper had 21 points, seven rebounds and two blocked shots. Chelsey Stricklen had 15. Morgan led Pawnee with 20. Whitney LeGrand
