Turnovers hamper Keys in loss to top-ranked Fort Gibson

Keys boys no match for 4A No. 6 Tigers


Boys: Fort Gibson 83, Keys 27

The 4A No. 6 Tigers had no issue putting away their 10th win of the season as they cruised to a 83-27 victory over an exposed and vulnerable Cougar team. Keys head coach Duane Jones was absent for the game, as he was tending to his ill wife who is currently hospitalized, which put all coaching responsibilities on assistant coach Shiloh Shores.

“We played pretty well. But Keys is playing with some kids hurt right now and they played without their coach also,” said Fort Gibson head coach Gary Hendrix. ”Shiloh does a great job. But any time that happens or there is any kind of disruption to your team, its tough.”

Keys’ 3-of-21 shooting performance in the first half led to a 40-8 halftime disadvantage. The shooting would not improve by much for the Cougars in the second half as they would shoot 6-for-21 for the half.

The Tigers (10-1) responded heavily on the misses and had three players in double digits. Coleman Crawley had 19 points. Jordan London finished with 13 and Dakota Lashley had 10.

Chris Stayathome would be the leading scorer for Keys (1-7), finishing with eight points.

Both Fort Gibson teams return to action next week in the Old Fort Classic while Keys goes to Hilldale tonight.
