Several matchups shift starts for tonight

Tonight’s basketball action will shift from normal start times at many venues, due to the conflict with the Cotton Bowl football game between Oklahoma and Texas A&M.

Those changes start at Ron Milam Gymnasium as Jenks comes to Muskogee for 5 p.m. (girls) and 6:30 p.m. (boys) varsity starts, a full hour ahead of the customary 6 and 7:30 starts. Muskogee’s girls come in 5-1 and ranked No. 9 in Class 6A in the  Okrankings.com coaches poll. Jenks is not ranked on the girls side, but brings a No. 6 ranking against the unranked MHS boys.

Four other matchups have adjusted start times: Wagoner at Catoosa will go with girls at 2 p.m. and boys at 3:30 p.m., Oktaha will play host to Henryetta in a 3 p.m. girls tipoff and 4:30 for the boys. Others are Gore at Vian (4:30 girls, 6 boys) and Heavener at Stigler (5:30 girls, 7 boys).

Okmulgee at Hilldale, Okay at Warner, Hulbert at Sallisaw Central, Webbers Falls at Gans and Locust Grove at Keys remain the same (girls 6:30 p.m., boys 8 p.m.).

Just as Fort Gibson and Jay did Thursday, two other matchups are abandoning Friday altogether. Sequoyah will play host to Cascia Hall at 3:30 p.m. (girls) followed by the boys at 5 p.m., and Tahlequah at Bishop McGuinness tip at 6:30 and 8 on Saturday with the girls playing first.

All scheduled JV games will make the same shifts.
