Santa Fe: Boys' No. 1 playing waiting game...

Teams, no refs for Choctaw-Santa Fe
As Choctaw tried to build on momentum from a four-game winning streak that included winning the East Central Classic in Ada last weekend, the Yellowjackets were looking forward to Tuesday night’s home boys basketball game with new No. 1 Edmond Santa Fe.
But a scheduling mix-up led to the postponement of both the boys and girls games when no officials arrived to call the game. Junior-varsity games were played, but when teams took the court for the girls game, Choctaw administrators realized there were no referees.
Choctaw coach Doug Armstrong said the source of the oversight was unknown.
The teams hope to reschedule on a Saturday later in the season, though no date has been selected.
This doesn’t really hurt the Santa Fe girls, who are coming off winning the Skiatook Invitational on Monday. Santa Fe has the mega-showdown with Edmond North at home on Friday and isn’t too far off its normal schedule.
But the boys? This hurts a little. Santa Fe hasn’t played since the dramatic win against Putnam West last week. Don’t need that kind of layoff this late into the year.
The Wolves, of course, are the new No. 1 on OKRankings as well. So their first game at the top of the ladder will be against rival North. The Huskies have dropped three in a row since the big win vs. Norman North. A theme throughout this season right now for Jeff Tompkins’ club, North was in the game in the fourth quarter for all three defeats.
