The Moore American

Lions travel east for regionals



BTW comes into its matchup with Moore winning five straight contests. They are led by Juwan Parker, a 6-foot-5, 200 pound senior. He is the 39th ranked shooting guard in the nation and has committed to play at Georgia next year.

Moore knows it will have to try and contain Parker and Kevin Simms if they want to advance.

“We are looking OK,” sophomore Jaylon Wilson said. “We need to focus on defense first. Just do it all on defense and work better as a team.”

If the Lions win Friday, they will play the winner of No. 4 Owasso-Sand Springs in the regional championship Saturday at 7 p.m. If they lose, their season will be done.

“They have to fully commit to each other,” Howell said. “Make sure the boys are playing hard for each other. Regardless of what comes out of my thought,. Some of them have to realize this may be it for them. We need to go out swinging. Need to play hard for yourself, for your team and to show this is the Moore Lion team everyone expected us to be this year.”

Westmoore (16-7) vs. Putnam City North (9-12)

The Jaguars and Panthers will face off at 6:30 p.m. Friday at Midwest City in the first round.

Westmoore has won six of its last seven games. It’s only loss was to No. 1 Midwest City, who they could meet in the second round if they win.

The Jaguars are considered the favorite to win the matchup with PCN. But that was the same position it was in last year when they lost in the first round.

“When we defend and rebound like we need too, we are a tough team to beat,” Westmoore coach Scott Hodges said. “We can really score the ball, so that usually isn’t a problem. We will either make or break ourselves on the defensive end of the floor.”
