Tecumseh (14-7) was 67.8 percent (19-of-28) from the line. Chectoah was 53.3 percent (8-of-15) from the charity stripe.
Montana Rickey, who had Tecumseh’s only 3-pointer, tallied 17 points and team- mate Angel Harris contrib- uted 12.          “We played really solid defense in the second half and shot better the second half,” Tecumseh coach Amy Shelby said.
The Lady Savages face an- other elimination test at 1:30 p.m. today against the Ft. Gibson-Wagoner loser.
