Marlow basketball teams win at LGHS

DUNCAN — While much of the focus was squared on the Black Diamond Tournament this past weekend, the Marlow Outlaws and Lady Outlaws were busy making some noise of their own at the Lone Grove Invitational.

While the Outlaws rebounded to claim the consolation championship on the boys side, the Lady Outlaws made a run before falling in the championship game to Washington.



Before his team’s game against Idabel, head coach John Garrett had said IHS was capable of winning a close ball game.

Turns out that observation was very accurate.

A 28-21 scoring advantage in the second half turned out to be the difference as the Warriors claimed the first round meeting over the Outlaws.

“We played a hard fought game against Idabel,” Marlow coach John Garrett said. “There were a lot of things we did right, but we just ran out of time. Idabel made their free throws down the stretch so that’s why the score turned out like it did.”

With the game tied at 15-15 after one quarter, the Warriors outscored the Outlaws 13-8 in the second to take a 28-23 lead into the locker room for halftime.

Jackson Huddleston led the scoring for the Outlaws with 12 points followed by Wes Coast with 11 points. Braeden O’Dell added nine points with Zac Beasler putting in eight points.

Kirby Neufeld put in four points in the game.


In game two of the tournament, the Outlaws took out their frustration on the host Longhorns, gaining their second victory over LGHS this season.

“Our guys really shot the ball well against Lone Grove,” Garrett said. “We took them out of the game early and were able to establish the tempo against them.”

A 34 point first half effort was followed by an impressive 46 points in the second half as the Outlaws broke their three game losing streak.

Lone Grove found itself down 34-25 going into the halftime break.

Wes Coast and Braeden O’Dell each scored a team-high 21 points with Jackson Huddleston adding 15 points. Kirby Neufeld put in nine points while Zac Beasler scored eight points. Nathan Crowson rounded out the scoring with six points.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
