Oologah finished fifth at the Ft. Gibson Tournament last week with wins over Muldrow and Bishop Kelley and a loss to #12 Inola.

In our first game with Inola we just had one bad quarter and we found some consistency against Muldrow,” Oologah head coach Jim Deaton said. “Saturday against Bishop Kelley was the best game we’ve played in my tenure at Oologah. If we play like that in the playoffs, we could make a deep run.”

The Mustangs are 11-4 and ranked #18 in 4A. Sophomore Breyden DeSpain was on fire at the Ft. Gibson Tournament. He averaged 28 points and 8 rebounds a game.

DeSpain was named a Player to Watch by the Tulsa World. He is the eighth leading scorer in the state.

Breyden knocked down some extremely important shots for us at Ft. Gibson. He was a big factor in the fourth quarter against Kelley,” coach Deaton said.

The Lady Mustangs tipped off the tournament against #1 unbeaten Ft. Gibson. Oologah lost to the Lady Tigers, beat Stilwell and went down against #19 Inola for a sixth place finish.

That tournament was very competitive. It was nice to see some teams from that part of the state that we don’t usually get to play,” Oologah head coach Kandy Damron said. “The girls are playing hard and we’re getting ready to push through the last part of the season and get ready for playoffs.”
