Shawnee girls coach Wendi Wells was more impressed with her squad’s defense than offense Friday night following a 41-28 victory over Deer Creek.
“Offensively, we didn’t look very polished,” Wells said. “We just made some mistakes we shouldn’t be making.
“Defensively, we played pretty well, although we had some spots where we got tired.”
Junior Caitlyn Ramirez led the Lady Wolves (19-2) with 14 points and teammate Kelsee Grovey accumulated 10.
Shawnee didn’t register a 3-point field goal.
The Lady Wolves were 62.5 percent (5-of-8) from the charity stripe while Deer Creek was at 50 percent (4-of-8).
In the nightcap, the Wolves continued their late-season slump with a 64-53 setback to the Antlers. That drops the Wolves season record to 14-7.
DeWayne Clemons and Dillion Mooreland led Shawnee in scoring with 13 points apiece. Terrance McDonald added a dozen points for Shawnee.
Shawnee trailed by one, 31-30, at the half.
Clemons hit two treys for the Wolves and senior Tyler Young canned two long-range jumpers.
Shawnee will conclude its regular season tonight at Carl Albert. The girls game will begin at 6:30 p.m. with the boys game to follow.
