Verdigris senior Jordan Chancellor races toward the paint against Adair on Friday, Dec. 18.

Jordan Chancellor came within seven points of outscoring Jay herself.

That is how unstoppable the Verdigris senior was Tuesday night, pouring in 21 points on 8-of-12 shooting — including 5-of-9 from beyond the arc — to lead the Lady Cardinals to a 51-27 road victory. She also tallied seven deflections, three rebounds and a steal.

Eleven of Chancellor’s points and three of her five 3-pointers came in the fourth quarter, in which Verdigris outscored the Lady Bulldogs 18-5. It was quite an improvement team wise from the third period, for the Lady Cardinals managed only six points during that eight-minute stretch.

In all, Verdigris shot 47.6% from the floor while holding Jay to 25% shooting.

Fellow senior Lexy Borgstadt was a force as well, finishing with 15 points on 6-of-13 shooting to go along with eight rebounds, six deflections, one assist and one steal. Her younger sister Morgan added nine points, six rebounds, six steals, four blocks and a deflection.

Marsis Foreman led the Lady Bulldogs with 11 points, six of which came at the free-throw line. Skylar Brantley had a notable performance as well with eight points on 3-of-4 shooting.

Jay made more 3-pointers (4) than 2-point field goals (3), shooting 57.1% from deep.

The Lady Cardinals, ranked sixth in Class 4A, improved to 6-1 with the win and play Rogers County foe Claremore at 4 p.m. Thursday in the first round of the Port City Classic, which was moved from the Catoosa Activity Center to the Verdigris Activity Center because of COVID-19 issues.
