Duncan teams struggle on road vs. Ada

DUNCAN — For at least a half Tuesday night, it seemed like the Duncan Demons might finally break their losing streak against the Ada Cougars.

And then, the third quarter happened.

After going into halftime down 33-32, DHS managed just three points following the break as the Cougars opened up a 15 point lead and held off a late rally to win 63-57.

Duncan has now lost a season-high 14 straight games.

“We just went flat shooting,” Duncan coach Mikel Davison said. “We’ll stay in ball games because of our press, and our size has been a big factor. It’s hard for us to score though if we can’t get around people. Cade Baldwin was knocking down shots in the first half, and putting some heat on Ada. If we can knock down shots then we’re in pretty good shape.”

Following a sluggish third quarter, the Demons went on a run and almost caught the Cougars by surprise, outscoring them 22-13 in the final stanza.

Duncan was well within striking distance after the first quarter as the Demons found themselves down by just one point at 18-17.

“We’re outmatched at times, and if we get just one shot then it makes things difficult for us,” Davison said. “I’ve been real pleased with our kids because we keep ourselves in the game. But, we just get outgunned and that’s something that just happens. It’s tough for us.”

Isiah Ervin led the scoring for Duncan with 21 points, followed by Cade Baldwin with 11 points. Jack Braught added eight points, with Ben Petersen scoring six points on the night, with Je’Mario McCoy scoring five points. DeAndre Vermaire and Carter David both put in three points.

Ada was led by Cory Kilby with 26 points followed by Walker Whitworth with 12 points. Easton Pingleton was the other Cougar in double figures with 10 points.

Duncan will finish its regular season Friday night with a matchup against Durant.

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.
