The Dupree Tigers moved to 16-1 on the season after defeating the Philip Scotties on the road Saturday afternoon. The game was originally scheduled to play at 5 p.m. but was moved up and played early in the afternoon to get ahead of the approaching winter storm.

The Tigers wasted no time jumping out to a 26-7 first quarter lead. The Tigers doubled their score in the second quarter, while Philip was able to score 20 points. The Tigers never looked back in the second half as they continued their offensive attack easily defeating the Scotties 96-50. The victory marks the sixth time this season the Tigers have reached 90 points in a game.

Nate Widow and Kash Deal led the charge for Dupree combining for 59 of Dupree’s total. Widow finished with 30 points and six rebounds, while Deal put in 29 points, grabbed four rebounds and four assists. Dupree hit 37 of 68 from the field for 54% and 18 of 26 from the free throw line for 69%. The Tigers only coughed up four turnovers to Philip’s 15. Thomas Doolittle led the Scotties with 12 points and Tate DeJong added 10. The Philip JV squad defeated the Tigers 40-44.

The Tigers have three contests remaining on the season and remain fifth in the Class B polls. The Tigers play at home twice this week, with Newell coming to town on Thursday and Timber Lake on Saturday for Parents Night. Dupree’s final regular season game is scheduled for next Tuesday, as they travel to Takini to take on the Skyhawks.

Wakpala

The Dupree Tigers took on the Wakpala Sioux last Tuesday night in a conference match up that paired the teams together for the first time this season. The Sioux came into the game with an 8-4 record and an up-tempo offense that many said could give Dupree a run for their money. For the first opening minutes of the game, it seemed Wakpala was going to just do that as they kept the game tied at six until a couple fast breaks opened up Dupree’s lead to 18-6 at the end of the first. The Tigers offense brought out the heavy artillery in the second quarter and outscored Wakpala 31-10 to head into the locker room with a 29-point lead.

Wakpala was able to find a little offense in the third quarter scoring 21 points, however the Tigers offensive attack continued, scoring 29 points to extend their lead to 37. The fourth quarter saw a continuation of the Tigers’ attack as the they outscored the Sioux 19 to 13 to rout Wakpala 95-52 for the Tigers 15th win of the year.

Nate Widow led the charge with 25 points, nine rebounds and Creighton LeBeau, back from an ankle injury, finished with 23 points including five three-pointers. Kash Deal finished with 13 points and pulled down seven rebounds. Teddy Iron Cloud led Wakpala with 13 points and Carlin Mellette finished with 12 points. The Tigers dominated the boards out rebounding their opponent 46 to 16. Dupree shot 40% from the field and 60% from the free throw line, making 14 of 22. Wakpala made 21 of 71 shots from the field for 30% and hit 8 of 16 from the charity stripe.
