Basketball teams return to court

Woodward, Okla. — Christmas break is over and the area basketball season heats back up Friday, Jan. 4 with several games on tap.

The schedule includes Buffalo at Arnett, Beaver at Forgan, Canton at Seiling, Fairview at Chisholm, Fargo at Leedey, Shattuck at Fort Supply, Freedom at Aline-Cleo, Laverne at Texhoma, Mooreland at Cimarron and Waynoka at Sharon-Mutual.

On Saturday, Jan. 5, Buffalo hosts Laverne in a game postponed from earlier this season due to the football playoffs.

Action starts everywhere at 6:30 p.m.

Arnett’s second-ranked Wildcats (Class B)  are home after taking part in the powerhouse Tournament of Champions in Tulsa over the holidays.

Arnett went 0-3 in the tournament but was competitive in every game and lost the last 2 by a combined 5 points.

Tyler Tune averaged nearly 24 points a game in the tournament and four other Wildcats scored in double figures in at least one game.

Buffalo comes into the 270 Conference matchup on a 4-game winning streak after starting the year 1-4.

Beaver County rivals clash as the Forgan Bulldogs host the Beaver Dusters.

Forgan’s boys, ranked No.1 in Class B, are 7-1 this year with the lone loss to Class 2A Hooker. Beaver is off to a 6-2 start.

On the girls side, Forgan is 5-3 and Beaver 4-5.

Seiling’s girls will try and snap a 3-game losing streak against an up and down Canton club.

On the boys side, the Wildcats are off to a strong 6-2 start.

Fargo’s boys are ranked 3rd in Class B and will take an 8-3 record against the Leedey Bison, who were 3-8 in the first part of the season.

Leedey’s girls come into the game 9-4 and ranked in the top 20 in Class B.

Fort Supply will host Shattuck in a 270 Conference doubleheader. The Fort Supply boys are 5-4 this season with a young lineup. Shattuck, also a young team, is 4-4.

Shattuck’s girls are ranked 14th and looking for their seventh win of the season.

Mooreland’s girls are 6-0 and ranked 15th in Class 2A while Orient Conference opponent Cimarron has struggled.

On the boys side, the Bearcats are 5-1 and Cimarron is 7-5.

The Laverne-Texhoma boys game will feature 2 teams loaded athletically.

Both got late starts due to football and were hot and cold in December with Laverne going 3-3 and Texhoma 5-3. Texhoma beat the Tigers 79-74 in the Laverne Tournament.

At Sharon-Mutual, the host Lady Trojans are looking to solidify their No. 15 ranking in Class B against Waynoka.
