Local teams square off in summer league


MERIDIAN — Choctaw's big run

Clinging to a 34-27 advantage in the second half, the Lady Warriors went on 10-0 run to take a 44-27 lead over Southeast Lauderdale, cruising to an eventual 53-31 win.

Choctaw again received contributions across the board with six different players scoring at least five points.

“We pass the ball really well to each other,” Smith said. "They don’t care who scores, just so long as we score.”

Despite Tuesday’s result, the contest was seen a positive outcome for Southeast as its two low-post players, junior-to-be Tia Larkin and senior-to-be Gabrielle Cole, scored 11 and 10 points, respectively.

“We’ll be pretty strong in the post, but our guards are going to be young,” Southeast coach Joe Miller said.

Larkin and Cole are expected to join forward Timara Trussell, who is recovering from an ACL injury suffered last winter, in hopes of building a formidable frontcourt trio.

“It’ll be a big lift when we are able to get her back,” Miller said. “ Summer games gives our younger players a chance to play and prove themselves, and that’s our main thing that we’re looking at.”
