PARIS, Texas â€” It was not a good weekend for the Carl Albert State College basketball teams on Saturday as they both fell to Paris, Texas.
The Dragons jumped out to a 10-0 lead to begin the game, which was a big key in their 60-41 win over the Vikings. In the opener, the Lady Vikings fell 59-40 to the Lady Dragons in the opening game of the doubleheader.
Both CASC teams are in action this week. The Vikings will play another road game at 7 p.m. Wednesday against the University of the Ozarks junior varsity in Clarksville, Ark.
When you look at this week's schedule at the end of this column, you'll see that there's not a lot of high school basketball on the slate. Really, after tonight's pretty busy night of basketball, there won't be such a night until after the Thanksgiving Break.
There's only two games on Thursday (including Bokoshe's season openers), and Friday's lone action, Cameron at Gans, has been canceled because the Grizzlies made it to the Class B state quarterfinals in football. Thus, that match-up won't take place Friday night, but I'm sure it will be rescheduled for a later date.
