High school girls basketball: Tuttle’s Allen has triple double in win against Kingfisher

KINGFISHER – Landry Allen didn’t even have to jump.

As another Kingfisher player tried to attempt a layup against Tuttle’s 6-foot-3 freshman, she stood waiting in the paint, rejecting shot after shot. After she blocked the shots, Allen would sprint down the court and post up, finding easy ways to score in the paint.

Allen recorded a triple double in Class 4A No. 14 Tuttle’s 55-36 win against Kingfisher on Tuesday. She finished with 28 points, 14 rebounds and 13 blocks, and coach Brian Lester said he saw a new aggressiveness come from his star freshman.

“Her skill level is off the charts,” Lester said. “She’s just a true post player. I’d put her skill in the post up against anybody.”

Madi Surber added 10 points for Tuttle (8-3) while Hadley Periman and Storie Driver each tallied six. 

Allen said the Kingfisher defenders were elbowing her in the post, so it fired her up to play well and post one of the best performances of her young career.

"Every time I would make (a shot), I'd get a little more excited," Allen said. "I kind of got on a roll."
