|Cougars Finish Sweep Of McAlester|

Sophomore Jaxson Robinson got cooking early and the Ada High boys basketball team — ranked No. 8 in Class 5A — cruised to a 55-45 victory over McAlester in a game that wasn’t nearly as close as the score might indicate.
Robinson scored 16 of his team-high 18 points in the first half to help Ada rush out to leads of 18-7 and 31-12.
The Cougars sank 7-of-11 field goals to start the game and after Cody Smith drained a 3-pointer and Trey Havens hit a long two-point shot, Ada had forged a 20-9 advantage late in the first quarter.
Robinson hit one of his four first-half, 3-point shots at the 3:13 mark of the second quarter to give Ada a 17-point lead.
The Cougars went to halftime on top 33-21.
|Lady Cougars Lead Sweep Of McAlester|
|12/05/18 - |
The new-look youthful Ada High girls basketball team had some things that didn’t go their way in a season-opening matchup with old rival McAlester Friday night inside the Cougar Activity Center.
• Ada had three freshmen start their first varsity game.
• The Lady Cougars committed 21 turnovers.
• The team missed 14 free throws.
• Tatum Havens, one of the Ada freshman starters, banked in a 3-pointer for the first bucket of the game, got into quick foul trouble and spent a ton of time on the bench.
• Senior Kaley Watkins — who head coach Christie Jennings hadn’t planned to play to give a preseason ankle injury more time to heal — was inserted into the game in the third quarter for her leadership skills.
However, despite it all, the 15th-ranked Lady Cougars defeated No. 20 McAlester 50-41.
“I thought we beat a pretty good McAlester team in a pretty physical game,” Jennings said. “I think any win this year is something we’re really going to celebrate just because of our age. Every one of these experiences is going to be new to most of these kids. It’s going to be a learning process.”
