Elk City played one of their best games of the season for 29 of the 32 minutes, then held on to snap a 5 game losing streak with a 45-44 win over the Lady Chicks. Hailey Buie led the Elkettes with 10. The Martin twins combined for 11.
The Elks and Chicks played an entertaining, back and forth affair on Joseph Dailey, Vivek Pranabdev, and Cam Mercer’s final appearance on the Pioneer Center floor in the regular season. Big Joe hammered one home…. 2:43:25) but the Elks trailed 62-58 with just over a minute left when Caden Dunlap caught fire. He stroked home a pair of 3’s to give Elk City the lead. Chickasha would tie it at 64 with 16 seconds left. The Elks had one last chance to win it in regulation….. 66-64 Elk City over Chickasha. The Elks had a season high 4 guys in double figures led by Dunlap’s 21.
