Borrowing a page from the girls playbook, El Reno High School’s boys basketball team unleashed a full-court press on Western Heights last week which helped the Indians to their first win of the year against a Suburban Conference foe.
El Reno forced the Jets into 25 turnovers, 17 of those being steals, as the Indians rolled to a 78-33 victory. The win moved EHS, ranked No.13 in Class 5A, to 7-5 on the season.
Kale Simon’s team is now 1-3 against league teams but remains 0-1 in games which count in the Suburban Conference standings.
El Reno High School’s girls basketball team forced Western Heights into 22 turnovers over the first two periods which were directly linked to the Indians full-court pressure defense.
As it turned out, El Reno needed every one of those possessions to get its offense stuck off high center. However, once it did the Indians rolled to a 69-26 win over the Jets.
