Class B girls basketball: Lookeba-Sickles edges Boise City in state quarterfinals

YUKON – Abygale Mashaney took an inbounds pass and breezed past the Boise City defense.

The Lookeba-Sickles freshman sped from one end of the court to the other before making a layup with 1:20 remaining, giving her team a one-point lead.

Lookeba-Sickles held on the rest of the way, defeating third-ranked Boise City 52-48 in the Class B state quarterfinals Thursday at Yukon High School.

No. 13 Lookeba-Sickles (24-6), which is about 30 miles southeast of Weatherford, is in the state tournament for the first time in 29 years. The Panthers led for most of the game, but Boise City (24-4) rallied in the fourth quarter.

Siarra Dadisman made a 3-pointer with 1:29 remaining to give Boise City a 47-46 lead, but Mashaney scored her layup on the ensuing possession.

Boise City’s Adriana Rosas had a chance to tie the game at the free-throw line with 21 seconds left. She made her first attempt to cut the deficit to 49-48 but missed her second shot.

Lookeba-Sickles made three free throws down the stretch to seal the win.  

“We did a good job defensively, and we got a little lackadaisical there offensively,” Lookeba-Sickles coach Tammy Bates said. 

Lookeba-Sickles will play Lomega in the semifinals at State Fair Arena. Tip-off is set for 9 a.m. Friday.
