Lady Red Devils sizzle from long range
PRAGUE — Tori Lester accumulated 16 points and Payton Camren added 13 as Prague’s girls improved to 2-0 with a 44-37 triumph over Tulsa McLain Friday night.
Prague led 23-19 at halftime and 36-30 entering the final period.
Camren knocked down all three of Prague’s 3-point field goals and was 4 of 4 from the charity stripe. Overall, Prague was 15 of 24 from the line for 62.5 percent.
McLain also struggled at the line, going 8 of 15 for 53.3 percent.
“We replaced five starters from last year’s squad so we are just trying to learn the game,” said Prague head coach Benny Burnett. “Tori Lester has really been stepping up for us so far. She is the only player who got quality playing time for us last year.”
Prague will entertain Stroud Tuesday then contest Tecumseh in Thursday’s first round of the Bethel Tournament.
