Hangover from The Big House
By Robert Przybylo
That’s all I can really say to try to describe what transpired Saturday and the way I felt today. There are a few times when you know you’re witnessing history. Saturday was one of those days.
I won’t dwell too much into games I didn’t see, but here’s what I can tell you. On my predictions, I was 3-1. I picked Tulsa Union to beat Sapulpa in 6A girls. I was right about Guthrie and Tulsa Washington winning titles in 5A. The only one I missed, well, I think everyone missed Putnam City.
Millwood vs. Sequoyah-Tahlequah, 3A girls: I was “on the job” for this one, but as the fourth quarter was winding down, I was a fan. Not of the Falcons or Indians, but of the game. I knew this game was a classic.
Whether it was the stellar point guard play of both Angel Goodrich for Sequoyah or Shea Bowden for Millwood. Or the bombs away shooting from Millwood’s Tijiasha Reid or Sequoyah’s Lorin Hammer. This game had just about everything you look for.
Mea culpa on this one as I told Berry Tramel before the game, “Sequoyah by at least 15.” Oy.
A fantastic game that could have played a great script had Goodrich won her fourth title by hitting the game-winner. But the Falcons winning was incredible. Like I said, the emotions of seeing teenage girls jumping and hollering compared to that of the grizzly ol’ veteran who has seen it all, coach Arnelia Spears.
