Davon Richardson has been a consistent top-scorer for Sand Springs since transferring from Tulsa Central this year, but until Tuesday night he had yet to crack the twenty-point personal record he set as a freshman. The 6'4" sophomore finally had his breakout game in black and gold, tallying a game-high 24 points and ten rebounds in a 64-45 victory at Jenks.

The Class 6A No. 9 ranked Charles Page High School varsity basketball team improved to 10-2 overall and 4-1 in conference play with the dominant win over the Trojans (4-6, 0-4). 

The Sandites jumped out to a quick double-digit lead with baskets from Cale and Colt Savage, Richardson, and Matthew Price to make it 11-0 before the Trojans used a timeout to get their heads in the game. Richardson took a steal to the house to make it 13-0 before the home team closed out the first period with four-straight free throws from Eli Harris.

Harris continued to cut into the deficit with back-to-back layups in the second quarter and set the tone for an 18-17 Trojan win that still left the visitors with a 30-22 advantage to start the second half. That would be the only quarter the home team would win.

The Trojan offense stalled out in the third quarter, tallying only ten points, while Cale Savage scored seven and Richardson added four. Gage Fisher came off the bench to score two, and Josh Minney added one in the stanza.

The fourth quarter belonged wholly to Richardson and Colt Savage. The University of Central Oklahoma-committed elder son of Head Coach Eric Savage scored six points to finish the night with eighteen total, as well as five rebounds, five steals, and two assists. Richardson added ten points in that stanza alone and put the cap on his first double-double of the season.

Harris had the team-high for Jenks with nineteen points and was the only Trojan in double digits. Cale Savage scored eleven for the Sandites. 

Sand Springs will take a break from conference action Friday at 8:00 p.m. when they travel to Ponca City (1-9), who they devastated 77-34 in the season opener. Jenks will host No. 7 Sapulpa (8-2, 2-2) as they look for their first conference win.
