Lots of hardware won by county hoop teams; playoffs resume Thursday

Several LeFlore County high school basketball teams brought home some championship and consolation championship plaques from last weekend's district and regional tournaments.In district tournaments, the Poteau Lady Pirates (Class 4A), both Spiro teams (Class 3A), the Howe Lady Lions (Class 2A), the Wister Wildcats (Class 2A) and the Talihina Lady Golden Tigers (Class 2A) all won their respective championships last weekend.The Whitesboro Lady Bulldogs won the Class B Regional Tournament consolation championship plaque Saturday afternoon at Moss High School to keep their season going at least one more game.All total, 17 of the 26 county high school teams are still alive in the postseason. Six of those teams need to win Thursday night in the respective regional tournament to guarantee another week of basketball practice since they will automatically qualify for next week's area tournaments — let alone reach their respective regional tournament title game. These same teams are also just three wins — at the moment — away from making state.Our two Class B girls teams still alive, Bokoshe and Whitesboro, need to win three games in three days to make it to state next week.Stay tuned to The Poteau Daily News, and we'll allow you to follow your teams all the way to State Fair Arena — a.k.a., “The Big House.”Playoff ScheduleClass 4A Regional TournamentThursday at RolandPoteau boys vs. Checotah, 3 p.m.Poteau girls vs. Roland, 6:30 p.m.Friday at SallisawPoteau girls vs. Sallisaw-Broken Bow winner, 1:30 p.m. (if Poteau girls lose Thursday)Poteau boys vs. Stilwell-Broken Bow loser, 8 p.m. (if Poteau boys win Thursday)Saturday at SallisawConsolation Finals, 1:30 (girls) and 3 p.m. (boys) (winners to area tournament)Finals, 6:30 (girls) and 8 p.m. (boys) (winners and runners-up to area tournament)Class 3A Regional TournamentsThursday at HeavenerHeavener vs. Atoka, 1:30 and 3 p.m.Thursday at SpiroSpiro vs. Keys (Park Hill), 6:30 and 8 p.m.Friday at WilburtonHeavener girls vs. Sequoyah-Tahlequah/Wilburton loser, 1:30 p.m. (if Heavener girls win Thursday)Heavener boys vs. Sequoyah-Tahlequah/Coalgate loser, 3 p.m. (if Heavener boys win Thursday)Friday at Carl AlbertSpiro vs. Tulsa Victory Christian-Valliant winner, 1:30 p.m. (if Spiro girls lose Thursday)Spiro vs. Salina-Antlers winner, 3 p.m. (if Spiro boys lose Thursday)Saturday at WilburtonConsolation Finals, 1:30 (girls) and 3 p.m. (boys) (winners to area tournament)Finals, 6:30 (girls) and 8 p.m. (boys) (winners and runners-up to area tournament)Saturday at Carl AlbertConsolation Finals, 1:30 (girls) and 3 p.m. (boys) (winners to area tournament)Finals, 6:30 (girls) and 8 p.m. (boys) (winners and runners-up to area tournament)Class 2A Regional TournamentsThursday at HowePocola girls vs. Wister, 1:30 p.m.Howe boys vs. Gore, 3 p.m.Howe girls vs. Panama, 6:30 p.m.Pocola boys vs. Wister, 8 p.m.Thursday at WarnerTalihina boys vs. Sallisaw-Central, 3 p.m.Talihina girls vs. Hulbert, 6:30 p.m.Friday at AdaHowe-Panama girls loser vs. Haworth-Rush Springs winner, 1:30 p.m.Pocola-Wister boys loser vs. Rattan-Konawa winner, 3 p.m.Pocola-Wister girls winner vs. Rattan/Amber-Pocasset loser, 6:30 p.m.Howe-Gore boys winner vs. Haworth/Amber-Pocasset loser, 8 p.m.Friday at WarnerTalihina girls vs. Hartshorne-Tushka winner, 1:30 p.m. (if Talihina girls lose Thursday)Talihina/Sallisaw-Central boys winner vs. Oktaha-Crowder loser, 8 p.m.Saturday at AdaConsolation Finals, 1:30 (girls) and 3 p.m. (boys) (winners to area tournament)Finals, 6:30 (girls) and 8 p.m. (boys) (winners and runners-up to area tournament)Saturday at WarnerConsolation Finals, 1:30 (girls) and 3 p.m. (boys) (winners to area tournament)Finals, 6:30 (girls) and 8 p.m. (boys) (winners and runners-up to area tournament)Class B Girls Area TournamentsThursdayAt ClevelandBokoshe vs. Burlington, 6:30 p.m.At KingstonWhitesboro vs. Caney, 1:30 p.m.FridayAt ClevelandBokoshe-Burlington winner vs. Shidler-Braggs winner, 1:30 p.m.At KingstonWhitesboro-Caney winner vs. Sasakwa-Panola winner, 1:30 p.m.SaturdayAt ClevelandFriday winner vs. Timberlake/Deer Creek-Lamont loser, Consolation Finals, 6:30 p.m. (winner to state tournament)At KingstonFriday winner vs. Lomega-Red Oak loser, Consolation Finals, 6:30 p.m. (winner to state tournament)
