Oologah - Talala Lady Mustangs - 2020 Basketball Preview Feature - Presented by Northeast Tech
Coach: Doug Winters
2019-20 Record: 18-9
The Lady Mustangs ended last season with a record of 18-9 and lost four starters. But head coach Doug Winters is not concerned about his team and thinks they are going to surprise some people. “Most people we are in a rebuilding year because we lost four of our starters,” he said. “But we will have five players with varsity experience. Our success will depend on the development of our bench to give the starters some rest.” Leading the team this season will be Kiah Purdunn (5-6, Sr). The point guard led the team to a Tournament of Champions appearance last year and has been named to multiple All-Tournament teams the past two seasons. Alexis Martin (5-7, So) came off the bench and had great success the last half of last season. Forward Bailey Runner (5-8, Sr) is a tremendous athlete that played valuable minutes off the bench last season. She is very strong in the paint and will be anchoring the post this season. Another player that saw good minutes a year ago, Liz Thomas (5-8, Jr) is ready to get her chance to show what she can do. Kenly Dixon (5-6, Jr) is a great athlete and a hard-nosed basketball player. She is valuable for making the hustle play. She is a true leader. SOMETHING TO WATCH - Kiah Purdunn has verbally committed to play softball at Fort Scott Community College.
