The inside-outside threat that is Durant’s Katy O’Steen and Regan Browne helped make Friday night difficult for Ardmore.


The two combined for 25 points and were one of four Lions in double figures Friday in a 66-26 victory over winless Ardmore. It was the first game in 13 days for the Tigers (0-6), who won’t play again until their Holiday Festival Dec. 29-31.


“Coming back from (a tournament in Fayetteville) Arkansas  and we hadn’t played in two weeks, we were having to redo some things and re-familiarize ourselves with some plays,” Ardmore coach Matthew Madole said. “The break did us no favors.”


The Tigers were held without a double-digit scorer and didn’t score in double digits in either period. TaGayla Lee had eight to lead the club.


“We have to start making some shots,” Madole said. “We’ve got shots, but we’re not knocking them down.”


Ardmore was down 34-12 to seventh-ranked Durant (6-1), but the Lions used a 25-9 third period to put the game away.


“Our girls played really well,” said Durant coach Barry Hudson, a Healdton native. “The break kept running all night long.”


Taylor Richards also had 11 points and Hailey Elrod 10 to pace Durant, which is 2-0 against the two Ardmore high schools. Hudson won his 200th game Dec. 5 at Plainview.
