The Red Demons boys basketball team fell to the Tigers Friday night after a back-and-forth battle that included 10 lead changes.
Eisenhower’s Jeffery Wake had a game-high 33 points for the Tigers.
For the Red Demons, junior Noah Sowers led the way with 29 points on 10 of 16 shooting from the field and 6 of 7 shooting from the free-throw line. Sowers also made 3 of 5 from 3-point territory.
“I thought we played our tails off,” Red Demons head coach Tony Starnes said. “(Eisenhower was) an exceptionally-good team we were playing against and we like playing good people just because that prepares us for later but they’re really well-coached, really good players.”
Through much of the game, the Red Demons boys held their own, Starnes said, often matching Eisenhower point-for-point. Near the end, however, they got in their own way a little bit though, he said.
Still, despite the loss, Starnes said the effort the players are giving is helping the team come along.
The Red Demons basketball teams finish out their December slate when they host the Guymon Tigers Tuesday. The girls game is scheduled to start at 6 p.m., while the boys is scheduled to tip off at 7:30.
