Stringtown Boys Win First State Basketball Title In Two Decades

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Stringtown wins its first state high school boys basketball title since 1984, beating Glencoe 63-44 in the Class B final at State Fair Arena.

Stringtown won consecutive Class B titles in 1983 and 1984. The squad from Atoka County finished 27-4 and did not lose to another small school this season.

Saturday, Glencoe jumped ahead 8-3 early before Stringtown scored the next 15 points.

The Tigers extended their lead to 13 points with 2:35 left in the 3rd-quarter and Glencoe came no closer than 10 points the rest of the way.

Stringtown overcame foul trouble experienced by two of its inside players, 6'7 Chris Washington and 6'8 James Watson.

The Tigers opted to use a zone defense in the 2nd half to help neutralize Glencoe's 6'6 Brennan Dearinger, who had 15 points and 14 rebounds.

Glencoe finishes 28-3.

Watson led Stringtown with 18 points, while Orlando Brown scored 16.
