Playoff hopefuls: Of the Metro Lakes Conference teams, Tahlequah seems poised to make the deepest run in the playoffs. The Tigers should beat Coweta in the first round of the playoffs, and then a matchup against Guthrie would likely follow. Bishop Kelley and Collinsville should also win first-round regional games, but that could be it from the league. Claremore will have its hand full with Memorial in the first round.
A Schu in: Regardless of how Skiatook ends the season, it can feel good knowing that Mickayla Schulanberger has three more years of eligibility left. Skiatook’s freshman guard has found her rhythm at the varsity level and has averaged 21.3 points in her last three games.
