Keys takes 2 from Wagoner

WAGONER — The Keys girls basketball team defeated Wagoner 53-40 Tuesday night at Hughes Event Center.

Mylee Hewitt led the Lady Cougars with 20 points and six steals in 32 minutes. Sydni Rainbolt battled foul trouble but was able to add 12 points and six steals off the bench for the Lady Cougars.

“I always tell Mylee that we want her shooting if she’s open,” Keys coach Mickey Duncan said. “She wasn’t hitting them like she usually does tonight, but I want her to be able to figure out how doing other things like getting to the free-throw line can really help your shooting. Once she figures that out, she is going to become a complete player.”

Keys shot 42 percent (19 of 45) from the field and knocked down 5 of 22 (23 percent) from behind the three-point line. Wagoner also shot 42 percent (14 of 33) from the field and made 4 of 7 from downtown.

The Lady Cougars were able to force 23 Wagoner turnovers to just 11 from the visitors. Keys also had 17 steals to just six from the Bulldogs.

Keys held a slim 15-11 lead after the first quarter, but an 11-4 second gave the road team a 26-15 lead at intermission.

Wagoner gave the visitors a quick scare by scoring the first seven points of the second half to get within four, but Keys closed out the third quarter on a 10-4 run to push the lead back out to 10 and never looked back. The Lady Cougars stretched their lead to 16 points in the fourth and held on for the 13-point victory.

“We got the looks we wanted from the three-point line in the first half, but we just didn’t shoot the ball very well,” Duncan said. “We concentrated a little more on our defense after (Wagoner’s) run in the second half, and we were able to get some layups. That gave us some energy and led to us knocking down more three’s.”

Kristen Robbins led Wagoner with 14 points. Kelsi Emmons added nine points but turned the ball over 10 times.
