Last weekend was a rough one on LeFlore County high school basketball teams. When we woke up Thursday morning, there were 15 teams left. However, now we’re down to three teams — the Talihina teams and the Spiro Bulldogs.
Only the Golden Tigers are still on the winner’s-bracket side. They will play for the Class 2A Area Tournament title, and a trip to state, Friday night in Wilburton against Preston — which was the team they beat in both the area finals and state finals in 2011 when they won the Class 2A State Tournament.
The Lady Golden Tigers and the ’Dogs have to make state the hard way — win three games in three days.
