HAMLET â€”Â For the first quarter and a half, Triton was right in it.
But as things so often do with Class A No. 1 Oregon-Davis, the Lady Trojansâ€™ early deficits snowballed fast.
OD closed the second quarter on a quick 12-0 run to take a 39-21 halftime lead, then used a 22-4 third quarter to run out to a commanding 36-point lead and put the game out of reach. The end result was a 75-35 victory by the Lady Cats at home at The Den in Hamlet Thursday.

HAMLET â€” Culver Communityâ€™s boys basketball team encountered a good news-bad news situation Wednesday.
First, the good news for the Cavs â€” a 45-38 victory over host Oregon-Davis at The Den following an eight-day weather-induced layoff for both squads.
The bad news, though, cropped up when the crunch-time turnover woes that led to three losses in the Cavsâ€™ previous four games resurfaced, reducing a 16-point Culver cushion midway through the fourth frame to the seven-point final margin.
