The Ada High boys basketball team put together a strong defensive performance in a 60-33 win over Harrah in the first round of the East Central Oklahoma Class boys bracket.
The Cougars, ranked No. 4 in Class 4A, improved to 7-1 on the year, while Harrah stumbled to 1-5.
“Last night was one of the best defensive performances of the season for our club from start to finish,” said Ada boys head coach Kyle Caufield. “I thought we did a great job of rebounding and playing with great energy all night. Offensively, I thought we had good movement and attacked the paint area well.”
Ada led just 14-8 after the first quarter but outscored Harrah 23-8 in the second period to race to a 37-16 halftime edge.
Kaden Cooper hit a pair of 3-pointers and led the Ada charge with 24 points. Jack Morris added 15 points for Ada, while Camryn Reed followed with eight.
Garrett Revene led the Panthers with 10 points and Kade Jackson followed with eight.
Ada played the Oklahoma City Storm in a late Friday night semifinal contest.\r\n\r\n
