SAC WOMEN'S BB: St. Gregory's clips Wayland, 55-50

(Continued)

PLAINVIEW, Texas — St. Greg's tied it up at 38-38 at the 10:36 mark and took control for the remainder of the game. The Flying Queens just couldn't get their shots to fall, and ended up dropping their second tight contest of the week, 55-50.

“CeCe stepped up big for us today,” Bryant said. “Angeleigh had 10 and she shot okay, but Laura (Laura Castillo) and Ro (Rochelle Norris) didn't shoot as well, and that's where we struggled. I'm proud of them for fighting back there late, but we didn't make the shots when we needed to. It's frustrating and somehow our kids have got to find their confidence. They've got to believe they can make those shots.”

Williams led the team with 18 points, including three from beyond the arc, followed by Angeleigh Davis with 10. The Flying Queens pulled in 45 rebounds, 21 offensively and 24 defensively, turned the ball over 15 times, had six blocked shots and seven steals.

Leticia Silva also scored 18 points to lead the Lady Cavaliers, while Kalie Lucas has 13. St. Greg's had 38 rebounds, 15 turnovers, seven blocks and eight steals.

The Queens will take Sunday off and then get back in the gym on Monday to prepare for two tough road games this week, as they will face John Brown (9-14, 4-7) on Thursday and Rogers State (19-6, 9-2) on Saturday. Wayland will be looking for redemption, as they lost to both teams at home during the last week of January.

“We'll go back, watch film and come up with a game plan for both of the teams we play this week,” Bryant said. “We'll go back it again on Monday…we'll practice and prepare like we always do. We'll try to gain our confidence back. I don't know where' we'll find it, but we have to, and we know we don't have much time.”

    When Claremore’s Matt Whatley takes his place behind the plate tonight in the Oklahoma Coaches Association Large School East-West All-State baseball game, the former Zebra catcher will be right at home.
    Whatley, who started four years as the catcher for the Zebras, finds his final high school baseball game taking place in his future college ballpark.
    Last November, Whatley and his long-time friend, Bryce Howe, signed NCAA Division I baseball scholarships to play for the Oral Roberts University Golden Eagles.
    Tonight, those dreams come true for Whatley and Jenks outfielder Cadon Owens, who will be joining his former Bearcats teammate on the East squad. Also, Verdigris' Ryan Skalnik will start at third base for the Large East All-State team.
