November 3, 2011

LEFLORE — The 2011-12 high school basketball season got under way not only for the Leflore teams but for LeFlore County in general Tuesday night.
The Savages handled the Wister Wildcats junior varsity 60-41 in their season opener at the Leflore Gym, but the Lady Savages suffered a 59-39 loss to the Lady ’Cats JV.
Wister played its JV teams because it had one too many games scheduled. So, Wister Coach Mark Warren decided to make Tuesday night's scheduled season openers be JV openers.

Talihina looks to end regular season with upset of No. 4 Vian

November 3, 2011

Last season when the Vian Wolverines visited Doc Robinson Stadium to take on the Talihina Golden Tigers, it was one of the biggest games in the state, let alone LeFlore County. The match-up determined the 2010 District 2A-6 champion.
This year when the Golden Tigers (5-4, 1-4 in district play) visit Class 2A's fourth-ranked Wolverines (9-0, 5-0) at 7:30 p.m. Friday, it will just be pride on the line as the game will be the last for Talihina this season since the playoffs are out of reach. But an upset of Vian would do wonders for the team.
