The Antlers tip off in the championship tonight at 7 p.m. on their home court against Northwest.
Deer Creek 6-4 senior Tyler Haddock began the second stanza with back-to-back buckets, Elyjah Clark hit a short jumper and Haddock came running in for a tip-in off the glass to put the Antlers up 26-11 with 2:37 to go before intermission.
Tahlequah’s Matt Alberty stepped in and nailed a very long-range 3-pointer from the right wing to keep the Tigers alive trailing 26-14, but Deer Creek outsized Tahlequah and walked into the locker room with a 33-17 cushion.
Huskies fall in overtime

Moore’s Jaylon Wilson hit a jumper with 2.8 seconds remaining to tie the score at 64 and force the extra period.
