Lawton Ike traveled to Midwest City to take on the Bombers Tuesday. The game was mostly back and fourth and it looked like the Bombers might have had it early in the 3rd quarter as they took a 1 point lead after going on an 8-0 run.
It was the Eagles who responded with a run of their own, well more like Antonio Gordon, as he went on a personal 8-0 run. ]
The Eagles were able to pull out a 64-59 win over the Bombers. This is the Eagles third win against Midwest City this season.
Antonio Gordon (Lawton Ike) 2019 Forward
Gordon has been an animal this season after exploding onto the scene this past summer. The 6’8 forward is long and very athletic. Gordon is still learning to refine his skills, but he has shown range and great touch around the basket. Gordon is also one of the best rebounder in the state. Gordon finished with a game high 22 points.
Kinyon Parker (Lawton Ike) 2018 Guard
Parker has shown to be one of the best shooters in the state. The 6’2 guard can shoot it from anywhere on the court and has one of the more quicker releases. Parker is a perfect fit playing next to Gordon. Parker finished with 13 points.
Kevin Farmer (Lawton Ike) 2018 Forward
Farmer continues to impress me as one of the best “glue-guys” in the state. He has solid size for a high school forward but will need to work on his handle if he wants to play at the next level. For now, being 6’4 will do. Farmer is scrappy, can guard smaller and quicker players, and has no problem getting to the right position on both ends of the court. Farmer finished with 10 points.
JD Ray (Midwest City) 2018 Guard
Ray has been one of the most consistent players for Midwest City this season. Although he is a little undersized, he possesses very good length and uses it to be an absolute pesk on defense. Ray has also shown to be a very good shooter from behind the arc. Ray finished with 12 points.
DJ Walter (Midwest City) 2018 Guard
Walter has had to take a leadership role after the departure of top 100 player KeyShawn Embery (IMG Academy). The 6’4 Oklahoma Christian signee is extremely long and has transformed his game to play around his shooting ability. Walter has gotten stronger and more confident off the dribble making him a solid #1 option. Walter finished with a team high 21 points.
