Jags’ backcourt key to playoffs

Southmoore girls to host regional tourney

(Continued)

MOORE —

The chemistry the two versatile players have developed already has them looking forward to the next few years.

“It’s pretty special,” Chastain said. “Just thinking later on in the high school career, we are going to be great. We’ve already been talking about it. We are ready.”

Guziec is just as excited about the prospect of the two growing up in the Jaguar’ program.

I’m very excited about their future,” Guziec said. “I believe they, along with several others on our team, will become very good. I say this because they are hard workers and don’t like to lose. They are coachable and have the desire to get better so I know they will do great things for Westmoore.”

Putnam City West (3-20) at No. 4 Southmoore (19-4)

The SaberCats are coming off a tough 48-47 overtime loss to No. 16 Edmond Memorial last week. It ended their chances to remaining undefeated at home and in the mid-State conference.

However, Southmoore still has designs on going after a 6A state title and are considered one of the favorites. It starts Thursday when it host its first regional tournament in program history.

The Cats and Patriots will play at 8 p.m. The winner moves on to the regional championship where they will play the winner of Memorial and Yukon at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.

Moore (3-18) at No. 2 Muskogee (18-5)

The Roughers defeated the Lions in the first round of the John Nobles Tournament last month by a score of 71-38. It will take a mighty effort for the Lions to change the outcome this time around.

Muskogee has lost three of its last four games down the stretch of the regular season. But Moore is battling injuries also.
