Sequoyah girls squeak by Stilwell

Sequoyah boys drop regular-season finale.



Stilwell 58, Sequoyah (boys) 48

The two-headed monster of Brody Clay and Matt Lea proved too dominant in Stilwell’s 10-point win.

Clay posted a double-double with 15 points and 11 rebounds, but it was Lea’s performance that stood above the rest. The 6-foot-8 junior recorded a triple-double with 21 points, 18 rebounds and a whopping 10 blocks in a game-high 31 minutes.

Sequoyah was only able to counter with 12 points each from Caisen Green and reserve Trinton Herron.

“The first time we played them, we were able to keep one of them down but not the other,” Sequoyah coach Jay Herrin said. “In this game they both went off on us. They’re big for a high school team, but we battled with them.”

Sequoyah hung around for the first two quarters, trailing just 30-22 at intermission, but the home team was unable to find an offensive rhythm or solve the Lea/Clay puzzle. The visiting Indians led 42-31 after three frames and cruised to the 10-point victory.

Lea and Clay helped Stilwell hold a 41-28 rebounding edge and a 36-22 advantage in points in the paint.  

Stilwell shot 49 percent (24-for-49) from the field and 80 percent (8-for-10) at the line. Sequoyah shot 31 percent (18-for-58) from the field and 64 percent (9-for-14) from the charity stripe.

Sequoyah, with Class 3A district tournament action ahead on Friday, will now prepare for its first-round playoff opponent in Haskell.

“Tonight will be a little bit of a wake-up call for us,” Herrin said. “Haskell has one big, and learning how to deal with that size will help get us ready. We need to keep working and improve, because we have a tough draw.”
