For the second time in the playoffs this season, the Buffs had the Indians number, as Hugo eliminated Marietta 64-50 at the Tom Condict Panther Dome in Okemah.

Hugo came out strong in the first quarter, outscoring the Indians 22-10.

Despite scoring 14 points before halftime, the Indians couldn’t stop the high powered Buffs offense as they managed to score 17 points of their own.

Marietta did outscore Hugo 11-10 in the third quarter, but the Indians couldn’t sustain the momentum and were outscored down the stretch 15-12.

Caleb McGehee led the Indians with 16 points followed by Zane Nutter with 15 points.

Trace Stewart added nine points, with Coleton Taylor scoring six points.

Marietta finished the season with an overall record of 22-7, along with a district championship and a regional consolation championship.
