Broken Arrow boys hoops to play in first state championship game since ’97
By John Dobberstein, Editor
The Broken Arrow High School boys basketball team will have a chance tomorrow to win its first state championship in a quarter century.
The Tigers eked out a 1-point victory over the Owasso Rams on Friday night to avenge their only loss this season.
It was a low-scoring affair, with BA leading 21-19 at halftime at the Lloyd Noble Center in Norman. On Thursday BAHS defeated Norman 55-44 to set up the rematch with Owasso, which dealt Broken Arrow their only loss last week in overtime, 63-58.
The Tigers will play for the state title at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Lloyd Noble Center. BAHS Coach Beau Wallace was a starter on the 1997 BAHS team that won the schools’ only boys’ basketball state title.
