Bookmark and Share

For the first time in several years, the Guthrie boys basketball team was riding a three game losing streak. To make it even more forgettable the Jays were 0-2 in the Titan Classic heading into the final day of play.

The Jays, who struggled for a good part of the first half, turned it on in the third quarter to get by Harvest Life 72-57. Harvest Life is a Christian school based out of Midwest City.

With the win, Guthrie is back over the .500 mark with an 8-7 record.

The Jays used multiple floor personnel throughout the entire game by playing 14 total players in which nine scored. Leading the scoring charge was Codee Gross with 19 points and Shron Parker, who got his first start, finished in double figures with 15 points.

Guthrie came out of the locker room with more intense and opened the game up with an up tempo transition offense. The result: Jays outscored the Kings 25-10 in the third. 

The tournament season is over and the BlueJays are just fine with that. In the nine tournament games, they finished 3-6 with all three wins coming on the final day on each tournament.
