  • A monster second half and a career-high 32 points from Alan Brewer helped carry Tecumseh’s Savages to an 81-58 win over Cache in a Class 4A regional consolation final Saturday.
     
    Ranked fifth, Tecumseh held a 19-14 edge over the No. 8 Bulldogs after one quarter. It was 32-25 at halftime, and the Savages uncorked 49 second-half points to drown any hopes the Bulldogs had.
     
    Brewer’s big night including just seven first-half points, but he hit seven of his eight 3-point field goals in the second half. Julio Hukill added 15 points and led the Savages with eight rebounds.
     
    Brewer and Colton Owen hauled in six boards each.
     
    Clayton Baquera, who led in assists with eight, netted 10 points for the victors.
     
    “I was really proud of these guys. That was a good win,” said THS coach Eric Litherland. “That was one of the better wins for us this year.”
     
    The Savages turned the ball over just six times.
     
    Tecumseh will face Blanchard at 8 p.m. Thursday in Chickasha on the consolation side of the area tournament bracket.
     
    In other Tri-County games Saturday, Bethel’s girls suffered a season-ending 56-53 loss to Bethany in a Class 4A regional consolation game. Chandler’s Lady Lions fell 63-36 to Beggs in a 3A regional to end their season, and Prague’s boys saw their run come to an end with a 64-55 setback to Crooked Oak in a 3A regional.
