MIDWEST CITY — Shawnee prevailed over Carl Albert 51-35 Tuesday night in a clash of Class 5A's No. 1 and No. 3 teams.

The top-ranked Lady Wolves claimed a key road win behind junior Bailey Taylor's team-leading 23-point effort.

Shawnee Head Basketball Coach Wendi Wells praised Taylor's offensive efforts.

"Bailey had a great game," she said. "She was knocking down some big shots for us."

Wells added that while it was a good win for the Lady Wolves, it wasn't a perfect one.

"It's a good road win for us," she said. "But we are seeing some areas that need improvement."

Wells cited defensive containment and control on offense as two such areas.

"Our defense wasn't what we're used to," she said. "We didn't contain as well; particularly against [Carl Albert's Jordan] Gilbert. She kept attacking. It's not just the job of the person on the ball to contain, but it's also the job of the help defense."

Gilbert led Carl Albert with 18 points.

Wells said there were times the Shawnee squad did not execute offensively as well as it could.

"Sometimes, they got a little excited and made a bad shot or threw the ball away," she said. "But at the end of the game the kids did a great job of not forcing their shots and letting shots come to them."

Senior McKenzie Cooper was Shawnee's other double-digit scorer with 15 points.

Shawnee returns to action Friday when they host Chickasha. The girls' varsity game tips off at 6:30 inside the Shawnee Performing Arts and Athletics Center.
