I got a chance to see tomorrow's stars last week

January 15, 2013

I watched the LeFlore County Junior High Basketball Tournament last week. Sometimes it was boring, and sometimes it was exciting.
Looking at those puppies, one can see that within a couple of years they will mature both physically and athletically.
Overall, I think the biggest story of the tournament would be the rebirth of basketball at Monroe. I believe the key has to be that the Eagles and the Lady Eagles have bought into the Casey Hemphill way of doing things, and they are learning to fly all over again. The Lady Eagles played for third place, while the Eagles played for fifth place.
