Friday, Nov. 8
The epic battle between the Ada High football team and high-powered Tulsa Edison lasted 10 seconds too long.
And then there were two.
It will be Senior Day and Armed Forces Day inside Koi Ishto Stadium when the East Central University football team hosts Arkansas Tech at 3 p.m. today.
The East Central University women’s basketball team saw a fourth-quarter comeback bid fall just short in a 58-53 loss to Southwest Minnesota State Friday afternoon at the Clarion Inn Invitational.
Seven local players were named to the 2019 Oklahoma High School Fastpitch Softball Coaches Association All-State teams earlier this week.
East Central scored three goals in the first 22 minutes and knocked off Ouachita Baptist 4-1 Thursday in a Great American Conference contest at Tiger Field.
Ada took on Tulsa Edison on Senior Night at Norris Field.
Fellow bowlers, I have said it many times — bowling is a family sport.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
Needing a win to earn the conference championship, the Oklahoma State soccer team came out firing early and often Thursday night at Neal Patterson Stadium.
The opening of the McKnight Center for the Performing Arts means a number of things for the Stillwater community. It allows OSU to host world-class performances, but also opens the doors for students to learn from some of the best in the business.
NORMAN — Sherri Coale looked at her players in hindsight and realized that, a year ago, they didn’t know what they didn’t know.
Everybody thought Kaylee Dao just missed, that Oklahoma’s best player, who’d scored more than half her team’s goals this season, had poked one just wide.
Did the loss knock OU out of the CFP? It very well may have. Unfortunately, one loss by a non-SEC teams leaves their fate in the hands of the bureaucratic CFP committee and that should make OU fans understandably uneasy.
MANHATTAN, Kansas — Students slipped over the chalky walls and onto the playing surface at Bill Snyder Family Stadium, many of them not old enough to have been born the last time their Wildcats did this.
NORMAN — Bill Snyder Family Stadium can hold right at 50,000 spectators, but opposing players view the fortress at Kansas State as much bigger based on the noise.
NORMAN — As Jalen Hurts looked for an open Oklahoma receiver in the end zone, West Virginia defensive end Reuben Jones inched closer in pursuit.
OKLAHOMA CITY — In a game they scored 115 points, the Thunder scored just 21 in the fourth quarter, repeating some of the failures that had led to four late losses five games into the season.
OKLAHOMA CITY — Though winnable games against Washington and at Houston have gotten away from the Thunder, they’re well ahead of the game by at least one defensive measure.
OKLAHOMA CITY — The horrid 32.6 percent shooting Golden State offered may not be replicable, yet the defense that helped produce it may be.
OKLAHOMA CITY — If the 46 points the Thunder allowed in the third quarter can be glossed over as something other than the primary takeaway from Oklahoma City’s final preseason game, a 124-119 loss to Memphis Wednesday night inside Chesapeake Energy Arena, then Devon Hall can be.
TULSA — Through Thunder training camp, much discussed topics have included Chris Paul, the squad’s lone superstar, ball movement as a big part of the offense, how coach Billy Donovan might manage three different point guards and the back-on-the-court-again Andre Roberson.
