Rough ending to Outlaw Hoops tourney runs

Lone Grove — The Outlaw boys basketball team had a sour end to their Lone grove tournament run, losing 49-46 in the third place game against Idabel.

The lead bounced back an forth, but Marlow missed a handful of shots down the stretch including the last one which would have sent it into an extra session. Coach Kirk Harris said the lack of offensive production played a big role in the loss.

“We came out a little bit flat in the second quarter,” Harris said. “We didn’t score much. I think they turned up their intensity a little bit. We were a little bit staggered on offense.”

Marlow girls basketball didn’t have much success either. Its run was cut short after losses to Comanche and Idabel.

In the 47-43 first-round loss, Outlaw coach Larry Mowry said his team hung on to make it a close game but didn’t do the things it needed to do.

“He ran the same press he always does, and we handled it well,” Mowry said. “We hung tight, but we just didn’t play well.”

Mowry said Marlow came out against Idabel fired up and had a great first half, but it wasn’t enough to guarantee a win. The Outlaws shot 6 of 28 in the second half, and became sloppy on defense. Mowry said the team needs to focus on winning the games where they are better than the opponent.

“Losing to the Lindsays and Washingtons, the top 10 teams, you can kind of live with that,” Mowry said. “When you come out and win the games you feel like you should win or someone lets you win, that’s an issue. That’s something we need to address.”

Both Marlow teams will get a relatively long break before heading to the first round of the Stephens County tournament. The girls will play Bray-Doyle at 7:40 p.m. on Dec. 20. The boys will take on Frederick at 5 p.m. on Dec. 21.

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.
