Tournament time for prep teams

Westmoore hosting annual tourney

NORMAN — It's tournament time for five of the six area basketball teams.

On the girls side, No. 3 Southmoore is traveling to the MidFirst Warriors Classic in Anadarko. It's first round game has it taking on Lawton High at 10 a.m. Thursday.

If the SaberCats win, they will go against the winner of Altus and the OKC Storm at 3:20 p.m. Friday in the semifinals. There is a chance that Southmoore could meet No. 1 Anadarko (4A) in the finals Saturday at 6 p.m. in what would be one of the best matchups of the weekend.

Moore is heading to Chickasha and will face Lawton MacArthur at 4 p.m. If the Lady Lions win, they will play in the semifinals at 7 p.m. Friday.

The Westmoore girls will stay at home this week as they host the 25th Annual Lady Jaguars Classic.

The varsity tournament kicks off with Westmoore taking on P.C. North at 1:30 p.m. in the first round. The rest of the field include Norman High, Eisenhower, Mustang, Carl Albert, B.T. Washington and Sapulpa,

"Top seeds for the tournament are Sapulpa and Booker T. Washington," Westmoore coach Andrea Graziec said. "This tournament has always had some underdogs step up and win some games though, so I'm sure it will be a tough fought tournament. Fans can expect to see intense athletes, great coaching and hopefully a great atmosphere. We are hosting a freshman tournament along-side the varsity tournament so there will be a lot of activity in the gyms. Five teams have both their freshman team and varsity team in the tournament, so it will be fun to see all of the fans and teams watching and supporting each other."

On the boys side, Moore will head down to Chickasha to play in the basketball classic. The Lions take on Chickasha JV at 11:30 a.m. The championship game is set for 8:30 p.m. Saturday.

The Southmoore boys are at the Skiatook Invitational and will take on the host Bulldogs at 2:30 p.m. in first round action. The tournament field includes Owasso and NOAH Jaguars, which features the top player in the state.

If the SaberCats win their opening contest, they will play in the semifinals at 8:30 p.m.
