Prep playoff matchups set for area teams

MOORE — The Southmoore girls basketball team will host its first ever regional tournament this year, according to the OSSAA playoff brackets, which were released Thursday.

The fourth-ranked SaberCats (17-3) have only three losses on the season and have yet to lose a game at home. They will play Putnam City West in the opening round at 8 p.m. Feb. 21. If they win, they will play the winner of the Edmond Memorial and Yukon matchup. Both teams in the regional championship advance to the area tournament.

The Lady SaberCats are the only team from Moore that will host a regional. The Westmoore girls take on Putnam City at PCO in the opening round while Moore plays Muskogee at the Roughers’ home court. Both games are at 8 p.m.

On the boys side, Moore travels to Owasso to take on B.T. Washington at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 22. If the Lions win, they will face the winner of the Owasso and Sand Springs.

“I’m an old school guy,” Howell said. “Whoever we got, let’s go. Just do the best we can. Ofcourse we are going to prepare for them. Let’s just go play whoever it is.”

Southmoore will face Eisenhower in Lawton while Westmoore takes on PC North at Midwest City.

Other area teams

After a 14-6 start and a No. 8 ranking, the Norman North girls will host the first round of the playoffs.

North will host Lawton (4-13) at 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21, with the game coming immediately after Norman High (8-12) plays Midwest City (12-8). The loser in each game will be eliminated, while the winners will play at 1:30 p.m. Saturday. Both teams will advance to the area tournament the following weekend, with the winner of that game facing an easier path to the state tournament.

On the boys’ side, NHS (8-12) will travel to face No. 10 Edmond North (12-8) for a 6:30 p.m. game Feb. 22 at Edmond Memorial, while North (9-11) will face Putnam City West (10-9) at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 22 at Putnam City.
