Indians rebound with road win at Gorman

February 1, 2014

The Lipan Indians used a 20-9 second-quarter run to open up a 15-point halftime advantage on their way to a 59-42 victory in a District 17-A basketball game at Gorman Tuesday.

The Indians (11-13 overall) improved to 4-2 in district and remained in third place behind Lingleville, No. 9 in the state, and No. 10 Huckabay. Lipan played both close last week, losing by five at Lingleville and by three at home to Huckabay.

Derrick Cook scored 17 to lead Lipan against Gorman, and Trevor Hedeman added 15.

“After getting off to a slow start, we got it going in the second quarter,” said Lipan coach Cody Chandler. “Once again, we had three guys in double figures scoring with several others providing what we needed in other ways.

“We are now in position to make a push for the district title if we can take care of business against the teams we have already beaten once. Our team shooting and defense have improved tremendously over the last few weeks. Lots of hard work is really starting to pay off. “

Last season Lipan missed the playoffs for the first time in a couple decades.
