League leader

Coweta: The Tigers have been untouchable in league play to this point. Bishop Kelley played to within three points of Coweta back in December, but since then the only scare Coweta has received was against Tahlequah on Jan. 29 in a 10-point game.

Up and coming

Pryor: A league title is no longer a possibility for the Tigers, but they’ve really turned it on since the calendar flipped to February. Granted it’s only been two games, but Pryor’s 25-point win over Collinsville and 20-point victory over Skiatook have both been impressive, with at least 63 points scored in each game.

On the skids

Collinsville: No one has been more downtrodden than Claremore in the conference. However, since the 2013 calendar year started, Collinsville hasn’t been too far off Claremore’s pace. The Cardinals have only posted two wins in 11 games during the 2013 portion of the schedule.

Notes

Tiger clash called off: A matchup of Class 5A No. 6 Coweta and 4A No. 6 Fort Gibson was canceled on Monday because of the student suicide at Coweta Public Schools on Monday. With Fort Gibson beginning its playoff slate a week from today, the game will likely not be made up.

Riding Wright: Tahlequah point guard has found his scoring stroke over the Tigers’ four games, and the evidence has been in the win-loss column. With Wright leading Tahlequah in scoring against Northwest Classen, Coweta, Bishop Kelley and Collinsville, the Tigers have rattled off three wins and one loss in the last two weeks. Wright has averaged 19.5 points over the last four games.

Trending downward: It’s been a rough go of it this season for Claremore. Making matters worse is the Zebras’ average scoring margin per game: minus-22.9. Sitting at 0-19, the Zebras will have four games — Collinsville, Pryor, Tahlequah and first-round playoff opponent — to avoid going winless this season.

  • Sooners shifting several positions

    Experience comes from encountering the same things in the same ways over and over again. Oklahoma’s Geneo Grissom and Julian Wilson have that at defensive end and nickleback in bunches.
    However, both will be seeing new things when practice begins. Grissom is moving to outside linebacker. Wilson will be getting a look at cornerback as his senior season begins

  • Lindley, Tom.jpg Better police needed for college teams enticed to cheat

    The NCAA once cracked down on colleges that went too far luring top prospects, then it targeted teams that lathered players with special treatment. That was until the NCAA's get-tough approach backfired, rendering it ineffective and creating an opportunity for those who want to play dirty.

  • Really one true champion?

    I decided to spare the colleagues in front of me – and myself from making a scene – by holding back flipping my table at the Big 12 Conference Football Media Days in Dallas.
    I had become exhausted by the constant use and misrepresentation by the Big 12 with their moniker of “One True Champion.” If they are going to live with the slogan, then they need to abide by that slogan.
    Perhaps its a simple case that they are keeping constant with the poor math of the 10-team Big 12 Conference.

  • Hill expected to be used in multiple facets

    The picture became a little clearer recently of how Big 12 Conference Newcomer of the Year Tyreek Hill will be utilized in the Oklahoma State offense.
    And the picture is rather wide.

    Tiger Woods finished near bottom last weekend at Royal Liverpool, drawing out his drought of major tournament wins. Despite the disappointing showing, Woods' return to form remains a matter of when, not if.
