Midwest City's boys basketball team has jumped out to a hot start.

The Bombers have won each of their first six games by 25 or more points and reached triple digits in their 101-72 win over Mustang in the Mid-Del Holiday Classic last week.

Now, Midwest City is earning national recognition. The Bombers moved into MaxPreps' Xcellent 25 national basketball rankings at No. 21.

The Bombers resume play at Westmoore on Friday.

Next weekend, Class 6A No. 1 Midwest City figures to get its biggest challenge yet in the Putnam City Invitational.

The field includes No. 3 Putnam City, the only other undefeated team in 6A.

CAPITOL HILL TO HOST NO. 1 NORTHEAST

After three weeks off, the ninth-ranked Class 5A Capitol Hill boys basketball team will be back in action Friday night with a visit from Northeast, Class 2A's No. 1 team.

Capitol Hill returned virtually everyone from last year's team that won 15 games and reached the area playoffs. Lanky, athletic guard Nico Meadows, a longtime starter, heads the group that is 4-2 so far this season.

“We've got just about everybody back from last year, so as long as everyone stays after it, we look like a state tournament team,” Meadows said. “If we could make it, I think we could win it.”

Height is the only issue for the Redskins, with Meadows, a 6-foot-2 point guard, being the tallest player on the team.
