HARTFORD, Ark.—Heavener’s boys bounced back from a loss in the opener to blast Oden, Ark., 67-28, in the Gary Ford Invitational on Wednesday.
The Wolves, now 1-1, were in control throughout, taking a 19-9 lead at the end of the first quarter before expanding the lead to 37-17 at halftime.
“We played really well,” said coach Jeff Chronister. “Our opponent wasn’t real strong.”
The Wolves made a change in the lineup, which seemed to help considerably. Chance Dunigan got the start at point guard with Dillion May moving to the off guard. Dunigan alternated with Connor Place at point.
“We moved the ball really well,” Chronister said.
Noah Davis led Heavener with 18 points. Dillion May added 13 as 11 players scored for the Wolves. The Heavener coach said he was pleased with the play of Davis and Colt Dunigan, even though the two seniors are not shooting their best so far.
The Wolves are off until Dec. 16 when they travel to Wister.
