Local teams see change, more of the same in 2012-13

DUNCAN — For four Stephens County schools, some things stayed the same while other new elements brought change in the 2012-2013 basketball season. Here’s a look back at how the teams fared and where they ended up.

Duncan Demons

The Demons (5-19) started strong by winning five of their first eight games, but lost their way after that, dropping its final 16 contests.

Duncan saw its season come to a close in the regional tournament with a 71-39 defeat to Carl Albert.

Seniors Cade Baldwin, Carter David and Jack Braught finished their careers in that game, as they will graduate this year.

Lady Demons

Losers of their final seven games, the Lady Demons (4-20) struggled down the stretch.

Their season concluded with a 60-39 loss to Piedmont on Friday night.

The Lady Demons were up and down offensively all season, scoring as many as 67 against Durant in November and as low as 18 against Macarthur in early February.

Duncan loses seniors Jamie Carberry, Quita Carr, Aja Calvin and Sarah Ray.

Both Duncan teams had problems on the road, going a combined 0-13 away from home.

Marlow Outlaws

In the 2012-2013 season, Marlow did something it hadn’t done since 2004 – reach the Stephens County Tournament Final.

The team’s signature win came in the tournament’s semifinal, as they upset state-bound Velma-Alma 50-42.

Following the tournament, the Outlaws (14-11) impressed with a 63-56 win over Frederick in districts, but dropped each of its games at regionals. The season ended with a 61-55 loss to Lindsay on Saturday night.

Marlow seniors Jackson Huddleston and Sean Hazel will graduate this year.

Lady Outlaws

It was business as usual at the Stephens County Tournament for the Lady Outlaws (14-11) this year, who won the tournament for the sixth straight season.  

The team dropped each of its regional games and finished the year with a 63-58 loss to the Lindsay Lady Yellowjackets

Seniors Emalee Williams, Avery Walker, Ashley O’Dell, Anne Davenport and Madison Waller will all graduate from this year’s team.
