On Friday, Plainview coach Mike Dooney notched his 100th win as the head coach of the Lady Indians basketball team.

On Saturday, Dooney and his squad celebrated the century mark milestone with some hardware, routing the Chickasha Fighting Chicks 71-30 to take the consolation trophy in the Southern Oklahoma Classic tournament.

After opening the tournament with a loss, the Lady Indians roared back, Friday, routing Santa Fe South 82-55.

Anna Simmons lead the Indians with 16 points, with Megan Winchester scoring 12 and Tory Townley scoring 10 in the win.

The Lady Indians gave their coach a signed basketball decorated with the number 100 to commemorate the milestone, but the Lady Indians weren’t done celebrating yet.

On Saturday, they gave their coach a dominant performance against the Chickasha Fighting Chicks.

From the opening tip, the Lady Indians put the Chicks on their heels with a full-court press. Plainview’s Amiya Howard was a constant pest for the Chickasha, forcing steals and getting out on the break in the first quarter.

Howard finished with nine points in the first half, fueling the Indians to a 32-21 first half lead.

And while the game was within reaching distance for the Chicks after two quarters, Plainview put together stout defense and hot shooting from beyond the arc to put the game away quickly in the third.

We were a little sloppy in the first half and we settled too much for the side to side three,” Plainview coach Mike Dooney said.

“In the second half we started executing and getting better looks with the inside out three and better rebounding.”

Plainview outscored the Chicks 26-4 in the third and kept Chickasha scoreless for the first six minutes of the quarter as the Lady Indians hit bucket after bucket to eliminate any hopes of a comeback for the Fighting Chicks. 

Plainview’s Jillian Clark got the Indians going in the second half, hitting a pair of 3s from the corner to kick start the the Indians dominant third quarter. 

“Jillian is a greenlight shooter,” Plainview coach Mike Dooney said.

“We track her shooting percentages everyday in practice and she’s earned that green light. She doesn’t have to ask to shoot, she’s got the go ahead to pull the trigger. Over the summer, her and Anna Simmons made 10,000 threes, when a kid dedicates that much time they’ve earned that green light.”

Clark had 12 points, all from beyond the three-point line in the win. 

When Clark hit the bench, Plainview’s Anna Simmons kept up the scoring barrage in third quarter, draining her second three pointer of the game.

Simmons led Plainview with 17 points.

Plainview scored 13 more in the fourth to close out 71-30 win.

Plainview’s Tally Morris closed out the game with a couple steals leading to a pair of assists and fast break points in the final period.

Morris finished the game with 11 points, all of which were scored in the second half.
