Santa Fe was 4-2 following a 16-point loss to No. 1 Edmond Memorial, but since then, the Wolves have had four straight double-digit victories, including wins of 34 and 41 points in Onuoha's first two games back from injury.

“We're a lot different with him in there,” senior guard Aaron Anderson said. “We don't have to worry when a guy drives past us, because he's probably gonna block the shot.”

Coming off a 14-point win over No. 5 Putnam City, the Wolves have a challenging week ahead, hosting Yukon tonight before heading into action at the Bartlesville Tournament starting Thursday.

Aside from seventh-ranked Bartlesville, the field includes Putnam City West — which beat the Wolves earlier in the year — Ardmore and Broken Arrow.

LAWTON DUO COMMITS TO ECU

Entering the season, Lawton quarterback Cody Miller was among the state's most sought after recruits at the position.

However, a torn ACL in Week 3 made Division I schools a little timid to go after the Wolverines' signal caller.

But Miller will be playing college ball. Miller and linebacker Carter Grigg have each committed to East Central University in Ada.

Grigg was one of the leaders of the defense and big reason why Lawton went 12-1 and reached the state semifinals. He was also a second-team All-State selection by The Oklahoman.

HARRAH MAKES STATEMENT

State swimming coaches placed the Harrah boys as the No. 1-ranked team in Class 5A, but the Panthers still had to prove they belonged there.

They don't have to do that anymore. Harrah was impressive this weekend at the McGuinness/Casady meet at the Aquatic Center at Oklahoma City Community College.

Not only did Guy Worth's club best Altus, Harrah's top competition and reigning 5A champ, but the Panthers also beat out two of the area's best teams in Norman and Norman North.
