One might have forgiven the No. 4 Ardmore Lady Tigers for feeling out of place Tuesday night at home.
One might have forgiven the No. 4 Ardmore Lady Tigers for feeling out of place Tuesday night at home. Considering it was the first time in 2020 that the Lady Tigers had stepped foot on their own floor, Ardmore made sure it was worth the wait for their fans. The Lady Tigers marked the occasion with a convincing 49-26 victory over the Durant Lady Lions, moving them to 11-3 on the season and giving them their third straight win and fifth in their last six games. Ardmore was solid on both ends of the floor in the first quarter as the Lady Tigers scored 13 points while holding Durant to zero. Durant did manage to score its first points of the game at the 6:52 mark of the second quarter with a three-point basket. The offensive momentum though was short lived as Ardmore outscored the Lady Lions 14-13 before the halftime break to lead 27-13 at the half. In the third quarter the Lady Tigers kept up their pace as they scored 14 points while Durant scored just 10, before Ardmore finished off the game with a 14-6 fourth quarter run down the stretch. Miyah McGee and Reagan McCurley each scored 11 points to lead the Lady Tigers while Khalayah Willis and Tiona Cohee each scored six points with Shakira Smith scoring five points and Amaya Gordon adding four points. Ardmore is back at home on Saturday afternoon taking on Christian Heritage.
