Missouri High School Basketball - Joplin Area HomeSchoolers knocked off by Oklahoma City StormMarch 1, 2014: Joplin, MO 64778
The Oklahoma City Storm Storm basketball team scored 60 points and held the host Joplin Area HomeSchoolers Lions to 42 in the Storm non-league triumph on Saturday.
The Storm now sport a 15-20 record.
Early in the game, both team played a little tight, but that didn't last long. Both teams tried to pressure the other into mistakes.
The second quarter was much like the first - both teams trying to exert their will on the other. Both teams played full court pressure defense, and both teams tried to push the tempo.
More of the same in the third quarter - pressure and a fast pace.
The Storm's depth finally took it's toll on Joplin. It was obvious that the fast pace in the first three quarters took a lot out of the team from Missouri. OKC used 10 players in this one, and Joplin could not match that depth.
The OKC Storm win the regional championship!
