by Mel Bracht Published: March 8, 2012

Cox Communications (channels 3 and 703) will have exclusive coverage of the Class 6A and 5A boys and girls state basketball championships from the Mabee Center in Tulsa on Saturday. The Class 4A, 3A and 2A boys and girls finals from State Fair Arena on Saturday will air on Fox Sports Oklahoma Plus (Cox channels 68 and 715) because of conflicts with Thunder and women's basketball telecasts.

Fox Sports Oklahoma Plus is available to all program providers that carry Fox Sports Oklahoma.

Steve Marshall and Rod Thompson will broadcast the games from State Fair Arena, while Mike Wolfe and J.V. Haney will call the games from the Mabee Center.
