Plainview coach Jeremy Stewart may need to make more room in his trophy case.

Against Atoka on Thursday in the first round of the Southern Oklahoma Classic, 14 Plainview players found the scoresheet as the Indians rolled to a 80-41 win.

No Plainview starters saw the court in the fourth quarter. By the end of the third period, starting forward Michael Fagan had his glasses on, and fellow first-teamer Gary Inglett, who netted a game-high 21 points, draped a black T-shirt over his red jersey.

“It looked like we executed tonight,” Stewart said. “We were a little more organized, and it’s always nice when a lot of guys score.

“We really worked hard on defense yesterday. To hold someone to 41 points is pretty good.”

The starters were stationary in the fourth, but Plainview’s game was keyed by ball and player movement in the first three quarters. Tied 2-2 early, turnovers on three consecutive possessions led to an 8-0 Plainview run.

Gage Stewart (11 points) came off the bench to hit the Indians’ first 3-pointer, pushing the lead to 17-5. Two possessions later, Harrison Sluice found a cutting Trevor Wakefield for an easy bucket and a 22-7 Plainview lead.

The Wampus Cats scored the last four points of the first quarter, but Plainview (10-2) opened the second on a 12-2 run. Inglett scored back-to-back baskets in the paint for the 26-11 lead, then found Ryan Wallace with an outlet pass to complete the first of two 6-0 runs.

Plainview opened up the second half on a 11-0 tear to ice the game. By the time Atoka’s Dillon Moore scored the Panthers’ first bucket of the third quarter at 4:55, the Indians had a 53-24 lead.

“We have a little ways to go,” Wallace said. “We really need to win this tournament. With playoff rankings coming out in a couple  of weeks, we need to make a statement.”

The statement was made in the fourth quarter. Even without the starting five, the Indians outscored Atoka 17-3.

Wallace added 10 points for the Indians, whose bench outscored Atoka’s 39-7.

Moore led Atoka with 15 points and Jordan Harrison added 14 for the Wampus Cats.
