Tigers advance at Siloam Springs tourney

SILOAM SPRINGS, Ark. — Tahlequah was sluggish at the start, and had a relapse in the third quarter.

But the second and fourth quarters were good enough to pull out a 56-46 win over Prairie Grove, Ark., in the opening round of the Siloam Springs (Ark.) Holiday Tournament.

Dalton Cunningham had 14 points, Jake Vader 13 and two others — Will Carlisle and Lain Wright — finished with nine. The Tigers (3-5), who overcame a two-point deficit in the opening eight minutes to lead 29-17 at the break, but went cold the third quarter and trailed by two heading to the fourth, where they went on a 22-11 tear.

“We ramped up our pressure and hit good shots in the fourth,” said Tahlequah coach Mike Leafgreen, whose team plays Siloam Springs, a 67-21 winner over McAlester, in a 7:45 p.m. semifinal today.
