The two local teams participating in the Windthorst Tournament during the holiday break came home with two different stories to tell.
Nocona returned with a second-place finish at the event while Bellevue finished with four losses.
The teams opened the tournament against one another as Nocona defeated the Eagles 87-34. Bellevue allowed Nocona to outscore them by 27-4 in the first quarter, a deficit that proved difficult to come back from.
Nocona Indian Riley McCasland, who netted 21 points including one 3-pointer and 6-of-7 from the free-throw line in the first game, was named to the all-tournament team along with Jose Ogeda.
Brenton Vineyard also was hard for Bellevue to contend with, putting up 16 points, including two 3-pointers. Marcus Carter was on top of his game with 14 points and Hunter Fenoglio added 11.
The Indians put up a full team effort against the Eagles as it was Cade Breeze and Charles Evans who led the defense. Breeze finished the game with 13 rebounds and Evans with 11 of the 58 total rebounds. Breeze also finished with two blocks and three steals.
Nocona went on to defeat Munday and Alvord in the tournament before falling to Electra by eight points, 69-61, in the championship game. Read more, and see box scores and summaries, in the Dec. 31 Bowie News.
