Boomers visit Altus

Woodward, Okla. — Coming off solid victories over Clinton on Saturday, the Boomer basketball teams are on the road tonight for Western Conference games at Altus.

Girls tip time is 6:30 p.m. with the boys game following.

On Friday, the Boomers will be home to face Elgin for homecoming.

Woodward's boys take a 9-10 record into the matchup with the Bulldogs, who are 9-9.

Both teams won their most recent games as the Boomers routed Clinton 62-28 and Altus hammered winless Elgin 55-35.

Altus has been up and down throughout the year, never winning or losing more than 2 games in a row.

The Boomers have also battled consistency issues, but were dominant against Clinton, scoring the first 16 points of the game and picking up the easy win.

Taylan Iliff had 20 points and Ty Richey 13 in the game.

Woodward led 36-9 at halftime coach Corey Miller used his bench extensively in the game as 10 different players scored.

Woodward's girls, 4-15, will look to win back-to-back games for the first time this season against an Altus team that has also struggled to find wins, going just 4-14 so far.

After winning back-to-back games in the Anadarko Tournament in early January, Altus has lost 5 in a row, including a 44-39 setback against a Clinton team the Boomers have beaten twice. Altus' best win was probably a 52-51 decision over Star Spencer.

The Boomers are coming off an overtime thriller over Clinton.

After leading by 13 points at halftime, the Boomers fell behind and appeared in command in regulation only to have Clinton tied the game with a 3-pointer.

In overtime, Kameron Pope hit a three to start things and the Boomers went on to win 65-55, their highest offensive output of the season.

Haylee Bates had 17 points to lead 4 Woodward players in double figures. Amanda Covalt and Mercedeez Bell each scored 12 points and Hillary Hurst had 10.
