Oakland swept Siegel in its district opener at home Tuesday night, with the girls winning 55-22 and the boys 74-57.

The boys game was close in the first quarter, but Oakland went ahead by as much as 11 at 36-25 before Siegel cut the lead to 38-32 -- the closest the Stars would get.

Behind the play of Brody Burchard, who scored 23 points, Oakland had four players hit double figures as the Patriots move their overall record to 10-7 on the season after winning a tournament in Kentucky after the Christmas holidays.

"We played well as a team, moved the ball well and made shots," Oakland Burchard said.

"Without (Brody) Burchard we do not win this ball game. The more guys you can have in double figures teams cannot key on one guy to stop," Oakland coach Dyron Birdwell said. "The district race is going to be real competitive as I do not believe there will be a top team like the past few years."

Trevon Bass led all scorers with 24 points for Siegel. Isiah Haynes had 10 points for the Stars, who are now 8-8 on the season.

"You have to credit Oakland and Coach Birdwell. We were fine in the first half on the boards, but in the second half we just lost things." Siegel coach Matt Rigsby said.


Siegel (57): Trevon Bass 24, Isiah Haynes 10, Mac Moss 9, Carter Webb 8, Peter Thomas 4, Thomas Santel 2.

Oakland (74): Brody Burchard 23, Carrington Allen 18, Kenny Cole 12, Antonio Patterson 12, Casey Williams 6, AJ Bullard 3.

Oakland jumped out to a 25-4 lead at halftime as they held the Stars scoreless in the second quarter and extended the lead to get the huge win.

Carleigh Wilson led the way with 18 points and four blocks.

"She has been playing well for us, but we have several people who can step up and score any night as we are getting better," Oakland coach Shelby Campbell said.

Oakland had 16 of its 55 off the bench, led by Chloe Phillips and Kalise Bass each with six apiece.

"We just were not ready to play," Siegel coach Shane Young said. "There is more of an intensity with district games and we are just not there yet. Oakland is more experienced and I thought we would be ready after playing teams like Lebanon and Beech, but we were not ready."


Siegel (22): Elle Walker 5, Crystal Peralta 4, Secret Grissom 3, Janaisa Martin 2, Nyiah Hardison 2, Fiona Mallory 2, Lyriq Lillard 2, Daisha Rankins 2.

Oakland (55): Carleigh Wilson 18, Artasia Cole 7, Chloe Phillips 6, Kalise Bass 6, Ni' Kiah Chesterfield 6, Myah Sutton 4, Beth Nelson 4, Elaura Cox 4.
