EARLSBORO – From the opening quarter the Lady Indians applied full court pressure to defeat Earlsboro 62-21 Tuesday at Earlsboro.
“I think we played a quality game,” Asher coach Tari Dubler said. “We were a little sluggish early in the game. Our defensive transition is not where I want it to be, but it's going to get better.”
With the Lady Indians jumping out to a 24-2 first quarter lead, they stretched out a 34-13 difference at the half. Even though her team had a commanding lead, Dubler challenged her team to come out firing in the second half.
“It was a good opportunity to get the kinks out,” Dubler said. “It's early in the season and we're not in a good rhythm yet, so we want to take every opportunity to try and get better.”
Asher held a 58-15 lead going into the fourth and Dubler was able to let some of her bench players get playing time.
“It's always good when we can get quality minutes from some of our younger players and get them some experience so we just took advantage of that.”
Asher senior Tarin Dubler filled the stat sheet for the Lady Indians. Dubler contributed 25 points, 8 assists, 6 rebounds and two steals. Sarah Fleming also scored in double-figures, finishing with 12.
Casey Clark led the Lady Wildcats in scoring with seven.
On Friday, Asher (3-1) will host Wapanucka and Earlsboro (0-5) will hit the road to take on New Lima (2-2). Both games are scheduled for a 6:30 start.
