CPHS Basketball: Boys hammer Bixby 84-43, Savage scores 22


A fourteen-point streak in the first quarter and a 22-point performance from Cale Savage led to a dominant 84-43 victory for the Sand Springs Sandites Friday night at the Ed Dubie Field House. The Class 6A No. 7 ranked Charles Page High School boys’ basketball team (10-2, 5-0) rolled over Bixby (1-5, 0-4) to remain undefeated in Frontier Valley Conference action with their second-biggest win of the season.

Braden Weaver was first on the board, but Savage hit a three to tie it and Davon Richardson dunked for the lead. Marlo Fox was next to score, followed by Josh Minney with a pair of free throws and Savage with another three. Minney drained two more free throws before Connor Schiffli broke up the fourteen point run. Cole Durkee hit back to back threes for Sand Springs, but Sean Carter scored in the paint to end the quarter 20-7.

Savage continued his onslaught in the second period, scoring the Sandites’ first three goals of the stanza. He ended the first half six-for-six from three-point range with eighteen points. The Sandites had their best first half lead of the season at 46-24 and their second highest-scoring period of the season with 26 points in the second.

Sand Springs used a six-point run in the third to push their advantage to 59-28 before the Spartans got hot with six of their own. Daren Hawkins scored next and Richardson dunked to end the period 63-34.

Five Sandites finished in double digits. Richardson, Durkee, and Hawkins scored eleven apiece, a career-high for Hawkins. Minney finished with his third double-double of the season with ten points and eleven rebounds. Jaeden Hurd scored eight points all in the fourth quarter, and Jonathan Quier posted a career-high seven points.

The Sandites will return to action Saturday at the Ed Dubie Field House at 6:30 p.m. against Ponca City (2-5), who they throttled 68-46 in their season opener.
