Basketball Classic with High School and College Teams Planned at SWOSU
Plenty of basketball action will take place Friday and Saturday, November 20-21, when the Weatherford Area Chamber of Commerce hosts it 2009 Basketball Classic at Southwestern Oklahoma State University.
The classic will feature high school and college teams with action starting each day at 11:30 a.m. and continuing to the last game at 9:30 p.m. in Rankin Williams Fieldhouse on the SWOSU campus.
High school teams include both boys and girls teams from Chattanooga, Okarche, Oklahoma Storm and Harding Prep. College teams include women's teams from the University of Central Oklahoma, Oklahoma Baptist University, Oklahoma City University and SWOSU; and men's teams from Arkansas Tech, West Texas A & M, Missouri-St. Louis and SWOSU.
"We have some outstanding teams in this classic and there should be great basketball action throughout the day," said Chamber of Commerce President Tom Fagan. "We invite everyone to come enjoy."
On Friday night, fans will get to see a battle of Class A's preseason #1 and #2 ranked girls teams when #1 Chattanooga faces #2 Okarche. The boys game should be just as good as #2 ranked Okarche faces preseason #13 Chattanooga.
Fagan said the best part is that there is one admission price for the entire day of action. Adult tickets are $7, public school students $3 and SWOSU students with an I.D. are admitted free.
