After a break, it’s basketball hot and heavy

November 29, 2011

I must say I enjoyed my little down time last week with no high school athletics happening. But as they say, “All good things must end.”
Now that Thanksgiving Break is over, high school basketball will get going hot and heavy from now until the Christmas Break.
Poteau, Arkoma, Pocola and Talihina will begin their seasons tonight, while Heavener, Panama and Spiro will begin their seasons later this week.
So, let the hoop-la begin.
Schedule
Tonight
Poteau at Citizens Bank Classic in Van Buren, Ark., girls vs. Shiloh Christian, 4 p.m.; boys vs. Van Buren, Ark., 8:30 p.m.
