‘Technical Difficulty’

3 technical fouls in two games leads to Collinsville sweep over Claremore

CLAREMORE — It was total ‘chaos’ inside the Claremore High School Gym Friday night.

The Claremore High School basketball teams were accessed three technical fouls that Collinsville used as momentum, en route to a clean sweep in Metro Lakes Conference action.

The first two technicals came in the fourth quarter of the Lady Zebras’ 58-40 loss to the Lady Cardinals.

And, the final technical came in the fourth quarter of the Zebras’ 44-38 loss to the Cardinals.

All three calls swung the momentum in favor of Collinsville, as the Cardinals gained a pair of road victories over their rivals.

Early on in the girls’ game, the Lady Zebras tied Collinsville, 7-7 in the first quarter and carried a 19-15 lead into halftime.

Ashlyn Glenn, a senior forward, paced the Lady Zebras with 11 of the 19 points in the first half.

Collinsville, however, turned up its intensity on defense, holding Claremore to three points in the third quarter, and erupted on a 16-0 run to go ahead 33-22 with the fourth quarter remaining.

After holding Collinsville forward Kryston Wheeler to a mere two points in the first half, the Lady Zebras couldn’t stop her in the second half.

Wheeler scored eight of her 14 points in the third quarter, including the first six after the break that put Collinsville ahead 30-21 with 2:43 remaining.

Glenn, who was held scoreless in the third quarter, drained a three pointer with 4:49 remaining in the game for Claremore’s second field goal of the second half.

With 3:53 left in the game, Glenn fouled out with 16 points and was assessed the first of two technical fouls.

Lady Zebra head coach Stephanie Shaw picked up the second technical foul three seconds later as Collinsville hit eight consecutive free throws to soar to a 49-27 lead.

Shelby Kirby led the Lady Cardinals with a game-high 21 points.

Along with Glenn, Kaleigh Cox tallied 10 points and Monica Taylor added six off the bench.

Also scoring for the Lady Zebras were Bailey Steckline with 5 points and Cherokee Gott with 3.

The Lady Zebras dropped to 11-9 overall and 8-2 in conference.

Cardinals 44, Zebras 38

Another close battle that got away from the Zebras...

After leading 20-19 at halftime, Claremore  battled back-and-forth in the third quarter until Collinsville’s Derek Iannapollo knocked down a three-pointer with 2:20 remaining to put the Cardinals ahead, 30-23.

Angel Fulgencio answered with an offensive putback to close out the third quarter with Claremore trailing 30-25.

In the fourth quarter, Hunter Garroutte drained a pair of free throws to even the score at 30-30.

Then, with 3:26 left, Claremore’s Dontre’ Murphy converted a three-pointer to tie the game at 33-33.

Two possessions later, Dontre’ Murphy committed his second foul and showed frustration as the officials assessed him with a technical for his third foul.

Iannapollo knocked down 1-of-4 free throws as Collinsville went up 36-33.

The Collinsville lead increased to 38-33 on two more free throw conversions from Iannapollo with under 2:30 remaining in the game.

Senior forward Grady Caton pulled the Zebras back to 38-35 on a pair of free throw conversions with 1:32 left.

Shortly thereafter, Brett Russell capitalized on a Collinsville turnover with a game-tying three-pointer from the left elbow to make it 38-38 with 1:05 remaining in the game.

Collinsville, however, answered six-straight free throw conversions to seal the win.

Iannapollo led the Cardinals with 13 points and Shawn Kocheske added 9. Kendall Curtis also contributed with 7 and Nate Johnson had 5.

The Zebras dropped to 0-20 and 0-10 in conference with the loss.

Darius Murphy led the Zebras with 12 points while his twin brother, Dontre’, had 6.

Fulgencio continued the Zebras’ scoring with 4 points, followed by Garroutte with 4, Truman Burrage with 4, Russell with 3 and Caton with 2.

Claremore hosts Pryor on Tuesday.
