Nocona
Both Nocona teams definitively wrapped up district titles for the second straight year at Olney on Tuesday night.
The Lady Indians won unthinkably by the score of 73-2 while the Indians won 54-30.
The Nocona girls had already wrapped up the district title no matter if it lost on Tuesday. Still, the Lady Indians wanted to keep playing well with playoffs on the horizon.
While already winning in dominant fashion in every district game, including holding the Lady Cubs to single-digits the first game, Nocona took it one step closer.
Through three quarters Olney had not scored a point. The Lady Cubs had two free throw attempts in the fourth quarter, but missed both.
With the final seconds ticking away, Olney avoided the shut out on its final possession of the game where it made one basket.
Nocona won 73-2.
The Lady Indians start their playoff journey at 8 p.m. on Feb. 12 at Mineral Wells against Anson.
The Nocona Indians knew a win at sixth place Olney should not be too much trouble, though they wanted to avoid any on-court dust ups like the first game.
The Indians limited the Cubs to only 10 points in the first half while scoring well and leading 29-10.
Olney bounced back in the third quarter, more than doubling its first half total and outscoring Nocona, though only by three points.
The Indians took care of the ball better in the fourth quarter and picked up their energy again to finish well in the final period. Nocona outscored the Cubs 14-6 as it won 54-30.

Saint Jo vs Prairie Valley girls
The Saint Jo Lady Panthers wrapped up their regular season with a win at Prairie Valley on Tuesday night.
The Lady Panthers won 68-27 against the Lady Bulldogs.
Saint Jo had guaranteed a district title its previous game against Forestburg. For Prairie Valley, it was the last game no matter the outcome.
The swarming Lady Panther press defense was everywhere against the young and low depth Lady Bulldogs.
Saint Jo executed like it wanted to in almost every way, working the ball inside against Prairie Valley’s zone instead of just settling for 3-pointers and scoring more efficiently than average.
The Lady Panthers were able to get a lot of younger players some varsity time in the second half and Coach Daniel Lindenborn thought they did a great job.
For the Lady Bulldogs, Linzie Priddy led the team with 14 points. Senior Makaylee Gomez, in her last game, scored nine points. Natalee Young grabbed a team high nine rebounds.

Saint Jo vs Prairie Valley boys
The Saint Jo Panthers beat Prairie Valley on the road Tuesday night to stay in third place in the district standings.
The Panthers won 61-43 against the Bulldogs.
Saint Jo was coming off a disappointing loss to second place Forestburg, but bounced back.
It was a high-scoring first quarter as Prairie Valley scored 19 points. The Panthers full-court press picked up the intensity and it limited the Bulldogs for the rest of the game to only single-digit point totals in the final three quarters.
Saint Jo slowly started to pull way, especially in the second half as it won.

Missing scores
The Forestburg teams had a bye-game.
The Gold-Burg girls team had to cancel its season for having too few players. The Bellevue Lady Eagles were scheduled to play them on Tuesday.
