DHS falls to Ardmore in 3OT

DUNCAN — In a long and storied rivalry, this one should rank right around the top.

After numerous clutch 3-points and even more free throws, four Duncan starters watched from the bench — three fouled out, one cramping — as Ardmore pulled out an 80-75 victory in triple overtime on Tuesday.

In their first two games of the season, the Demons showed speed, talent and potential. At the end of regulation, though, they may have shown their inexperience for the first time, going 3-of-11 at the free throw line, finally hitting one with 1 second left, after missing six straight, to send the game to overtime.

Duncan’s starters began to foul out in the fourth quarter, losing Isiah Ervin first, then losing Cade Baldwin in the first overtime, then Je’Mario McCoy. Still, the Demons managed to trade punch for punch.

With 90 seconds left in the third overtime, senior post Carter David drained a 3 to tie the game at 75 and send the Duncan fans into a frenzy. Ardmore, though, answered with a 3 of its own 22 seconds later before making a steal and a layup to seal the victory.

Duncan senior Jack Braught hobbled off the court with one minute remaining in triple overtime, his body finally giving out after a fierce effort. He ended the night with 24 points and 20 rebounds.

Baldwin finished with 13 points, junior DeAndre Vermaire came off the bench to score 10, Ervin and McCoy each added eight and David notched eight points.

The Demons (2-1) built an 18-9 lead in the first quarter. It shrank to 27-22 by halftime and going into the fourth quarter they trailed 45-41.

Duncan certainly had its chances to win. Down 57-56, the Demons made four trips to the free throw line with a chance to tie or go ahead before Baldwin finally sank the final free throw of regulation with 1 second remaining.

The teams were knotted at 63 after the first overtime and 69 at the end of the second before the Tigers (2-1) finally pulled out the win.
