Balanced scoring propels Tecumseh
BYNG — Three Tecumseh girls scored in double figures Friday during a 46-37 triumph over Sulphur in a semifinal matchup at the Byng Tournament.
Tecumseh led just 15-14 at the half but took control with an 18-8 run in the third quarter.
Sophomore Kenzli Warden spearheaded Tecumseh’s offense with 14 points, including one 3-point shot.
Seniors Katelyn LaFrance and Tawny Billy chipped in with 12 and 10 points respectively. Billy was credited with two 3-pointers. Earning one 3-pointer were Sami Schweighardt, Taylor Mansell and LaFrance.
The Lady Savages were 6 of 20 from beyond the 3-point line for 30 percent.
Tecumseh, which improved to 12-3, hit 12 of 19 charity tosses for 63.1%.
Sulphur canned 8-of-14 free throws for 57.1%. The losers recorded three treys.
“We didn’t play very well but an ugly win is better than a pretty loss,” said Tecumseh head coach Eldon Gentry.
