With several players from the football team crossing over to play basketball as well, Lowe felt some carry-over of momentum from one season to the other.
“Half the basketball team was football players,” Lowe said. “In previous years, we didn't have a lot of success in basketball. A lot of us seniors were tired of losing. During football, the whole town of Owasso had our back, and we wanted that same thing in basketball. And that's what we started.”
There's no arguing that point. Anyone who was at the Mabee Center for Owasso's games, especially the semifinal loss to Edmond Memorial in double overtime, would tell you that the Rams had one of the biggest cheering sections ever at the Class 6A state tournament.
“That was humbling,” Lowe said. “That was the most people I've ever played in front of. I was proud to be a Ram. We loved all the support and just wanted to play for them.”
Lowe's future is in football. He signed with the University of Tulsa in February, but he has discussed the possibility with the coaches there of playing basketball as well.
