One more win, and Watson Chapel will get to play a city rival in a tournament final.

One more win, and Watson Chapel will get to play a city rival in a tournament final.

The way it shot and defended against Dumas on Monday night, it could happen.

Rodney Ollison and JoviOne Bailey combined for 30 points and 15 rebounds in Watson Chapel’s 69-44 victory in the Zebra Invitational Tournament at Pine Bluff High School. The Wildcats (6-4), who broke a two-game losing streak, will take on North Little Rock at 6 tonight, with Pine Bluff and Dollarway meeting in the other semifinal at 7:30.

“Our kids probably want to win this tournament worse than any other tournament we’ve played in,” Watson Chapel coach Matt Busch said.

The Wildcats shot 25 for 44 (56.8 percent) from the floor and capitalized on many Bobcats turnovers. Ollison had a game-high 17 points and eight rebounds, with four of them on offense.

“He plays great,” Bailey said. “He’s played better than I thought he would. He’s reliable.”

Watson Chapel made it back to the win column after losing double-digit leads to Texarkana and Little Rock Central last week at a tournament in El Dorado. “When you try to play pressure basketball like we do, sometimes the other team goes on runs, and we didn’t make our run late, and that’s what happened,” Busch said.

But after trailing Dumas 14-10 in the first quarter, Watson Chapel took control and didn’t look back.

Dumas (3-3), which lost last year’s Zebra Invitational to North Little Rock, had a strong start thanks in large part to Tevin Golden’s 10 points in the quarter. Golden finished with 15 points and four rebounds.

But the Wildcats threw the Bobcats out of their offensive rhythm with their full-court press and scored off turnovers in building an 11-0 run to lead 21-14. Dumas went without a field goal in the quarter until Antonio Ford hit a 3-point basket with 2:25 left before halftime, and Watson Chapel took a 31-19 lead after Ollison’s tip-in before the buzzer.

“Our pressure is what we kind of hang our hat on,” Busch said.

The Bobcats never came any closer than within 37-26. They were 15 for 39 from the field and were outrebounded 28-14.

Charleston Dobbs had eight points, four blocks and three rebounds for Dumas, which will play Stuttgart at 4:30 p.m. today.

Watson Chapel hasn’t met Dollarway this season but beat Pine Bluff 55-52 at home on Dec. 9. But first, the Wildcats’ objective for tonight is to end the Charging Wildcats’ reign in the tournament.

“We have to play every game like it’s our last,” Bailey said.

North Little Rock 94, Stuttgart 61

In the second game of the day, the Charging Wildcats improved to 8-2 on the season behind Tyree’s Hollister’s 24 points.

Cody Ware added 12 points, Dayshaun Watkins had 11 and Josh Laster scored nine, all on 3-point baskets, for North Little Rock, which led 44-29 at halftime.

For the Ricebirds (2-7), Jordan Daniels scored 20 points and Jarren Smith had 17.
