LONE GROVE — The Dickson Lady Comets came at the OKC Centennial Lady Bison in waves, Saturday, employing a full platoon of players in a 77-43 blowout victory in the Longhorn invitational consolation final from Lone Grove.

In the first quarter, the game was competitive with the Lady Comets holding a 20-12 lead.

But in the second quarter, Dickson ramped up the defensive pressure and set the tone of the game, forcing turnovers and getting easy buckets in transition to head into halftime with a 45-21 lead.

With the big lead, Dickson head coach Wes Moore was able to put fresh legs on the court, emptying his bench. He said the game gave him a good opportunity to gauge his depth.

“We’re still trying to figure out how many girls we got that can play,” Moore said. “I got some young ones that have ability but they need that court experience. So we mixed and matched today and I felt like overall we did a good job. I think everybody scored or contributed in some form or fashion. At halftime, we talked about everybody contributing — getting steals, rebounds and assists — I think we did that.”

Of Dickson’s 15 players on the roster, 13 scored in the consolation final victory.

And though there were fresh faces on the court, it was more of the same in the second half, with Dickson feasting on transition baskets to take a 58-26 lead heading into the fourth quarter

While his defense was on point, Saturday, Moore said for the Comets to continue to improve going forward they need to do a better job of capitalizing on turnovers.

“We’ve got to continue to push the tempo,” Moore said. “We’ve got the ability to run a little bit, but we got to make sure to knock down shots while we do it. We can’t just settle for shooting 18, 19 percent. We need to be in the 30s at least.”

The Lady Comets closed out the game with a 16 point fourth quarter to seal the consolation title in style.

Hailey Davis led Dickson with 13 points, Clary Donica scored 12 points and Makayla Smith chipped in 10 in the win.

Dickson will face Tishomingo Thursday night on the road.
