PN3E 4- The Perkins Journal, Thursday, February 4, 1993 PERKINS-TRYON DEMONS BASKETBALL Demon By Bob Williams Journal Editor The Perkins-Tryon Demons and Lady Demons face a busy week with the regular season winding down. The two varsity squads have received their district basketball assignments. Both are in Harrah with Jones also assigned there. "Harrah plays five-on-five in girls instead of three-on-three so both Jones and Perkins-Tryon have a first round bye," explained PTHS girls' coach Jerry Burnett. =So we'll play Jones at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20, in the district finals. Both teams will advance to the second round the foll(,ving week under Oklahoma's playoff system. The unique matchup will make the finals a family affair. Bumett's brother, Billy, is the head coach at Jones. On the boys side of the bracket, Perkins-T'yon will meet Jones at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 19. The loser is eliminated. The winner will face host Harrah in the finals the following night with both teams advancing into the second round of playoffs. Perkins-Tryon have three games slated this week. They played Olhahoma Christian School at home Tuesday, will host Blackwell Thursday before playing at Cushing Friday. Buruett has never had a losing season. His girls won twice last week, downing Bethany 55-50 and whipping Perry 44-32 on the road to raise the Lady Demons season record to 7-9. basketball "we jumped all over Bethany in us. the first half," Buruett said. "We had them down 30-15. We lost our intensity and struggled the last half." Traci Bostian led the way offen- sively with a season-high 18 points. Karl Willingham tossed in 14 and Trish Field 12. "the win at Perry was very satisfying," Burnett admitted. "It was best road game of the season." Carri Neal, who has been slowed most of the season with a knee injury, came alive at Perry to score a season high 24 points. Willingham had 12 and Bostian 6. Burner gives a lot of credit for the pair of wins to his guard end. "I thought they really played well," he said. "Katy Arthur, Kristina Atwood, Sheri Wilde and Megan Crane off the bench did a great job of defending, rebounding and getting the ball to the forwards. What was encouraging was their reducing the number of turnovers." Arthur's play on the defensive end earned the sophomore Player of the Week honors. Sophomore point guard Matt Brewer was selected Demon of the Week. After playing Bethany close at home, trailing 45-43 after three quarters before falling 66-54, the Demons collapsed at Perry, losing 64-41. "We had an opportunity to win the Bethany game," mused head boys' coach Rick C-arrison. =We made on 3 of 11 free throws in the fourth quarter and that's what beat J, ,,i" '" . ....

"Our kids, due to their youth, lack the maturity to fight through KATY ARTHUR Player of the Week MATT BREWER Demon of the Week midst a losing season and not give up. "I want them to forget about our 1-13 season record and concentrate on playing on hard for 32 minutes. I want them to dig in their heels and of busy keep fighting." After losing to Bethany at the line, it was free throws that kept the Demons even remotely in the game at Perry as they made 21 of 24 attempts.
