Sequoyah teams win easy at Tri-State Classic

JAY — The outcome was never in doubt — even before tipoff.

Class 3A No. 5 Sequoyah bombarded Locust Grove’s junior varsity team early and cruised to an 81-25 victory in the first round of the Tri-State Classic at Bulldog Arena in Jay on Thursday afternoon.

“The game wasn’t so much about the score,” Sequoyah coach Jay Herrin said. “We just wanted to get some things done.”

Caisen Green led the Indians (10-2) with 29 points.

“Caisen played a good game,” Herrin said. “He had a bunch of layups.”

Elijah Tucker chipped in with 10 points for Sequoyah, and Elan Eagle added nine points.

The Indians raced out to a 24-11 lead after one quarter and led 49-14 at halftime.

“We only played out starters three minutes into the second half,” Herrin said.

Up next for Sequoyah will be Kansas on Friday night at 8:30. The Indians, though, will be down a man.

“Zach Parish is out with a bad back,” Herrin said. “He might be out the whole tournament. We’re down a man but hopefully we can get past Kansas (Friday).”

The Sequoyah girls weren’t quite as proficient as the boys, but the Lady Indians still coasted to a 57-30 win over Westville at the tournament. Sequoyah outscored Westville 18-7 in the first quarter and eventually owned a 36-9 halftime edge.

Cenia Hayes paced 3A No. 4 Sequoyah (12-1) with 17 points.

“She had a lot of steals off the press and had some easy baskets early,” Sequoyah girls coach Larry Callison said. “And she did all that while playing in less than half of the game.”

Sierra Polk added eight points for the Lady Indians, who will take on Colcord in the tournament semifinals tonight at 7.
