No. 4 Lady Indians come alive turn back Jay

TULSA — Sequoyah had a unique opportunity to travel to Tulsa to play Jay in the BOK High School Showcase on Saturday, and the Class 3A No. 4 Lady Indians took full advantage as they defeated Jay 57-38. Jay gave Sequoyah all they could want and more as Sequoyah trailed 27-20 at the half.

“We came out a little sluggish and gun shy," Sequoyah coach Larry Callison said.

At the half Callison said, "I was a little hard on the girls, but just adjusted, and switched defenses to a 1-3-1 full-court press.”

The switch on defense worked for Sequoyah as they forced Jay into turning the ball over in the second half and converted turnovers into points on the offensive end. Sequoyah started the third quarter on fire going on a 13-3 run to take the lead from Jay at 33-30. Jay would make a pair of free throws to cut the lead to just one for Sequoyah in the third quarter, but Sequoyah answered with another run closing out the game on a 22-6 run. Sequoyah had outscored Jay 37-11 in the final two quarters.

Sequoyah got things turned around at halftime due to two things: the change on defense and Audrey Ballou’s performance on the offensive end.

Ballou netted 20 of her 25 points in the second half. Cenia Hayes and Sierra Polk chipped in on offense with 13 points and 10 points, respectively.

On playing at the BOK Center Hayes said, "It was a great experience for me with it being my freshmen year. It is very exciting."

Added Callison: "It is a great opportunity for the girls to get to be at a place like the BOK and play in front of these types of crowds."
