Down to six teams, five of which could make state

February 29, 2012

AREA TOURNAMENTS THIS WEEK — Salina's Courtney Backward, left, looks to drive past Spiro's Tyeecha Hawkins during the girls' Class 3A Regional Tournament title game Saturday night at Carl Albert State College's Mick Thompson Fieldhouse.

LeFlore County now has six high school basketball teams still alive in the playoffs — Poteau's girls (Class 4A), Spiro's teams (Class 3A), Howe's girls (Class 2A), Talihina's girls (Class 2A) and Wister's boys (Class 2A).
As I stated in the headline of today's column, five of these schools have a shot at making next week's state tournaments.
You wonder why not all six? That is because if the Lady Lions and the Lady Golden Tigers win their playoff games on Thurdsay, they will meet each other Friday afternoon — and one will knock the other out of the postseason.
The complete playoff schedule is listed below.
