A short and sweet column today; questionnaires still needed from coaches

November 6, 2012

Due to space constraints in today's edition, I'm not going to get too wordy this week.
However, let me remind county basketball coaches that I need their preseason questionnaire along with their schedule. The preseason questionnaires provide me the information needed to write the season-preview stories of our county basketball teams — like the story on Whitesboro's team in Thursday's edition and Howe's in Friday's paper.

Even Martin's presence couldn't help Thunder beat Hawks at home Sunday night

November 6, 2012

OKLAHOMA CITY — Not that it should come as any surprise, but newcomer Kevin Martin has been a welcome addition to the Oklahoma City Thunder team. He averaged more than 18 points a game with Houston and has already shown consistency on the court with his shooting and ball handling. After scoring 15 points, with three 3-point baskets and five assists in his first game and following that up with 19 points, three 3s, three rebounds and two assists against Portland in the Thunder's home opener Friday night, Martin really showed what he can do scoring Sunday night.
