The Midwest City girls basketball team is known for their defense.
But they are proving to be apt with the ball in their hands.
The No. 7-ranked Bombers topped the century mark scoring last Friday night, as they beat Enid on the road 101-50.
Nine Midwest City players scored in the game, with five finishing in double figures.
Kennedi Grant led the way with 19 points. Myracle Washington scored 17 points including four 3-pointers. Amber Guy and Latasha Mitchell scored 14 apiece and Taniyah Looney had 11.
“We shared the ball very well and went inside and out,” said coach Megan Maloy. “Amber Guy was a big threat. Sophomore Myracle Washington and Latasha Mitchell both got hot at the 3-point line, and Kennedi Grant was great with second-chance points.”
The Bombers (12-4) also knocked off Putnam City West last week at home, winning 52-35 on Jan. 26.
Grant was again the high scorer with 13 points. Mitchell scored 8 points and Mya Brown and Guy had 7 points apiece.
Midwest City was on the road Tuesday against Putnam City North (after press time) and will host No. 4 Choctaw on Thursday night.
