Claremore: The Lady Zebras, after beat Bishop Kelley on Tuesday, is closing in on a league title. Claremore hasn’t lost a league game since dropping a game against Skiatook in December.
Up and coming
Collinsville: Since a subpar showing at the Pryor tournament, Collinsville has won three straight games, including a three-point win over Tahlequah on Tuesday.
On the skids
Coweta: The Lady Tigers have fallen toward the bottom of the standings, and scoring only 14 points in a loss to Skiatook on Feb. 1 is not good look with the playoffs around the corner.
Sunny skies for Skiatook: It hasn’t been the most enjoyable season for Skiatook coach Tatum Beer with the Lady Bulldogs sitting at 4-14. However, Skiatook has turned things around lately and enters tonight’s game against Claremore-Sequoyah on a two-game winning streak.
Middle of the pack: Trending in the opposite direction of Skiatook is Bishop Kelley. Since posting back-to-back wins over Bishop McGuinness and Sand Springs in January, the Lady Comets have lost three straight games and have fallen out of contention in the league.
Jefferson jumps in: Shelbie Kirby had laid claim to top scoring honors for Collinsville in 16 of its first 17 games this season. However, on Feb. 1, Dakota Jefferson led the Lady Cardinals in scoring with 19 points in a blowout win over Pryor.
Games of the week
Boys: Coweta at Bishop Kelley, Friday
Coweta seems like a lock to win the league crown. But with a win, Bishop Kelley can keep its hopes alive and pray for a little help from Collinsville and Pryor in the final week of the regular season.
Girls: Collinsville at Claremore, Friday
A win for Claremore all but wraps up the league title. If Collinsville wins, it’s sitting in good shape with games against Coweta and Skiatook in the final week of the season.
