Tuesday’s High School Girls Basketball Roundup

November 19, 2014

WHITESBORO — The Whitesboro Lady Bulldogs took advantage of the Cameron Lady Yellowjackets only having five players as the hosts proved to be too much on this night, posting a 56-24 win Tuesday night at Steve Linker Gymnasium.
A free throw by Cameron’s Destiny Dunigan cut her team’s deficit to 9-8 with 30 seconds left in the opening period.
However, from there, the Lady Bulldogs outscored the Lady ’Jackets 23-7 to end the first half as Whitesboro took a 32-15 halftime lead.

November 18, 2014

Of the 16 teams remaining in the Class 2A high school football playoffs, only one got a opening-round road postseason win — the Panama Razorbacks, who downed the Chandler Lions 35-21 Friday night. It was the first-ever Class 2A postseason victory for the Hogs.
“It was great because that was the first-ever playoff game I've ever won, and it was the first playoff win for our seniors,” Panama junior quarterback Andy Burris said. I've been with them since I was little, and I know it was great for them. I was trying to win it for them. It feels good to make history.”

Preseason basketball questionnaires needed

November 18, 2014

Just a reminder to LeFlore County high school basketball coaches to be sure to send me your preseason questionnaires that were sent out last month. Now, that some of the football schools whose season on the gridiron are over will soon be starting their seasons on the hardwood.
The questionnaires are used for me to write the season-preview stories about our local teams. The questionnaires may be faxed to me at (918) 647-8198 or e-mailed to me at or shared as a photograph on my Facebook wall for me to download.

Hogs give archrival LSU Tigers 'The Golden Boot' on Saturday; Razorbacks snap 17-game SEC losing streak with 17-0 win over Tigers

November 17, 2014

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas coach Bret Bielema kept telling fans to be patient, that good things were coming. At least one of those good things happened on a cold Saturday night on Frank Broyles Field at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
The Arkansas Razorbacks snapped their 17-game Southeastern Conference losing streak by blanking the Louisiana State University Tigers 17-0. The win not only snapped the conference winless streak, but enabled the Hogs to claim “The Golden Boot” — the trophy awarded annually to the Arkansas-LSU game victor.

Pokes flat against Texas Longhorns

November 17, 2014

Pop music duo Daryl Hall and John Oates had a song back in the 1980s on one of their albums (or CDs these days) called “Going through the Motions.” That's what Oklahoma State looked like it was doing Saturday night in its Big 12 Conference match-up against Texas at Boone Pickens Stadium in which the Cowboys fell 28-7 to the Longhorns.
The Cowboys looked lackadaisical, while the Longhorns played flawlessly. Not always as OSU had its moments, such as stuffing Texas on the first second-half drive and getting its only TD, but definitely a fair assessment overall for each team.
