Class 3A area tournament dashes Perkins-Tryon senior Summer Roper drives the ball against Alva's Morgan Schoeling during first quarter action of Saturday night's Class 3A area consolation championship game at Alva High School. The Lady Demons were handed a disappointing 59-37 loss which ended their hopes of a state tournament berth. Roper averaged just over 14 points per game during the three-day event. By Rick Lomenick Journal Sports Editor WEATHERFORD Numerous Perkins-Tryon turn- overs were taken advantage of during Saturday night's Class 3A area consolation finals by the Alva Ladybugs. The end result was a season-ending 59-37 loss for the Lady Demons. It was the Lady Demons' third game in as many days. They knew they would have to sweep the consolation round in order to make their fourth trip to the elite state tournament. Alva, in turn, only needed to win Friday night's area champi- onship game to reach the state tournament again. But they were thumped by Chisholm 40-30 in overtime to set up Saturday night's game. However, it was a different looking Ladybugs ';tea trok to the floor Sat- Urday night at" the Weatherford High School Gymnasium. "Alva was a different team tonight than they were last night," said P-T head coach Jerry Burnett following the game as his team finished with an impressive 23-4 record. "Last night they couldn't buy a bucket but tonight they had girls Journal photo by Rick komenick step up and hit shots we didn't Good days ahead for Strange things happen in all phases of our lives and basketball is no different. The Cowboys played perhaps the best game of the season in Lawrence and lost. They then return home, where you are accustomed to seeing them play up to or near their potential, and they play like they don't want to win and then win. Texas comes to town with a 19-9 overall record, 8-7 in Big 12 play and down in fifth place in conference play, having lost two of their last three games and OSU gives another half hearted effort and loses 74-73. Texas A&M reminded us again of what to expect in the future. A new coach, new expectations and they're not going to be taken for granted anymore. After shooting 58.5 percent and having only nine turnovers against Kansas in Lawrence, the Pokes come home and shoot 42.9 per- cent, the fifth time this year that they shot below 44 percent. They prevailed 69-63, but they were never comfortable until the final whistle was sounded. OSU (21-5, 11-5 Big 12) is ranked third nationally in field-goal percentage. Three of the previous four sub-par performances resulted in losses to Gonzaga, Texas and Oklahoma. This makes it a little scary. If a team has an off night shooting in the NCAA tournament, the season is over unless its' defense is superb and they have minimal turnovers. The ability to make free-throws was the big difference against the Aggies. The Cowboys went 24 for 27, something unheard of a few years ago. Joey Graham was 9-9 and John Lucas went 8-8. This is what you need in a close game. Lucas scored a season high 27 and was one of the few Cowboys to have a hot hand. Ivan McFarlin was 2-2 and Daniel Bobik was 3-4, but they weren't putting up enough shots to have a strong effect. Joey Graham off-set some of that with a 3-11 night.
