BLUEJACKET — Courtney Watson scored a season-high 25 points as the Commerce girls coasted to a 63-46 victory over Bluejacket here Tuesday in Lucky 7 Conference play.
The win was the second in as many nights for the Lady Tigers, who are 11-3 overall and 7-2 in the conference.
They rolled to a 58-28 victory over host Sarcoxie, Mo., Monday night in the first round of the Sarcoxie Tournament.
They play Strafford, Mo., today at 5 p.m. in a semifinal game.
“We were tired,” Commerce coach Jerry Myers said. “We played four games last week and now played back-to-back games. We’re trying to play a little deeper with the bench.”
