Heavener’s girls take on fifth-seeded LeFlore on Tuesday at 7:10 p.m. at CASC. The Lady Savages defeated Cameron on Monday, 48-35.
The Wolves face second-seeded and three-time defending LCT champion Spiro at 8:30 p.m. at Howe.
Heavener’s boys used a 14-7 run in the second quarter to grab the lead and made enough plays down the stretch to keep the Mustangs from pulling off the upset.
Arkoma stayed close behind Jerry Anderson’s 25 points, but he was the only Mustang in double figures.
The biggest play of the game came from Noah Davis. After Arkoma trimmed the lead to 48-42, Davis saved the ball from going out of bounds, and before crashing into the stands lobbed a pass to the other end of the court. Dillion May raced down the pass and hit a layup to put the lead back to eight points.
Davis finished with 19 points to top Heavener, now 7-5. Colt Dunigan added 16 points, even though he missed the Wolves’ game on Friday with an injury.
The Heavener girls jumped out early to take a seven-point lead at the end of the first quarter and increased the margin to 36-18 at the half over Bokoshe.
The Lady Wolves, now 10-3, held Bokoshe’s leading scorer Hunter Traylor scoreless during the first half and she only scored two points in the game.
Jacee Manley had one of her better games, finishing with 19 points to lead Heavener’s scoring attack.
