Ada girls basketball coach Christie Jennings might have thought she had déjà vu after the first quarter during Tuesday night’s road trip at Durant.
Just two weeks ago, her squad beat Durant in the East Central Oklahoma Classic, pulling away in the second quarter and cruising to an easy 29-point win.
Tuesday night’s game was similar, as the Lady Cougars outscored Durant 20-7 in the second quarter and cruised to a 59-35 road victory.
|01/22/15 - The Class 4A 10th-ranked Ada Cougars, behind a 22-point fourth quarter and solid defense, rallied for a 53-43 victory over the host Durant Lions Tuesday night.|
Ada, which improved to 10-3 on the season, trailed 36-31 entering the fourth quarter and went on a 22-7 scoring barrage in the fourth, with 12 of those 22 points coming from the free-throw line. The Cougars were 16-of-22 from the charity stripe for the game.
|01/22/15 - Ada High School wrestler Marwin Dickerson ran his record to 14-0 on the season and was crowned champion in the heavyweight division Saturday in the Tuttle Tournament.|
Dickerson’s effort helped fuel the Cougars to a fifth-place finish in the team standings, as 20 teams competed in the event.
Levi Grimes had a runner-up finish at 182 pounds for Ada, while teammate Colton Lancaster, at 195 pounds, and Jonathan Fuller at 120 each took third place. Jonathan Cook finished fourth for the Cougars at 220 pounds.
Ada had three sixth-place finishers in Nestor Powell at 145 pounds, Teondre Harrison at 170 and Carter Patterson at 106.
The next home dual for the Cougars will be Thursday, as they battle Carl Albert at 7 p.m. after junior high action at 6 p.m.
