Playoff picture coming into focus

MOORE — Regional assignments are out, and most area teams find themselves traveling to start the postseason. Only Norman North will host for the second straight year.

The Norman North girls weren’t slated to host when preliminary pairings were released two weeks ago, but the T-Wolves’ play since then earned them the right to host the regional for the second straight season.

North (13-4) will meet Edmond North (4-14) at 8 p.m. Feb. 27. Also in the regional is Mustang and Lawton Eisenhower.

The Westmoore boys (8-10) will travel to Mustang, where they’ll meet North boys (15-5) at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 28, while Mustang will play host to Putnam City.

“It’s another step in trying to get back where we were last year and do better than that,” T-Wolves’ coach Jeff Blough said. “We’re excited about the chance. It’s impressive what we’ve been able to do that three of the last four years. These seniors were a part of hosting their freshman year, their junior year and now their senior years.”

Both Norman High teams will travel to Edmond Santa Fe. The girls (8-11) will play Southmoore (10-10) in the 6:30 p.m. game on Feb. 27, while the boys (3-14) will play the host team at 8 p.m. on Feb. 28. Edmond Santa Fe and US Grant will play in the other girls’ game, while Yukon and Lawton Eisenhower will also compete at the Edmond Santa Fe regional.

It’s a particularly tough draw for the NHS boys, who will face the state’s No. 2 team in Edmond Santa Fe (16-1).

The Moore boys (13-8) landed in the same region as No. 1 PC West (19-2), If the Lions defeat Edmond North (8-12) Friday, they will be on a collision course to take on PCW with a region title on the line at 7 p.m. Saturday. But first they have to deal with the Huskies.
