Claiming first place once again, Broken Arrow Basketball began their season by winning the first tournament of the year, the BA Invitational. On the road to victory, they handled the nineteenth ranked team in the state, Oklahoma City Storm, winning 71-57. Coming off their victories, they have started the season off with a record of 5-0.

“My favorite part of the tournament besides obviously winning was seeing the way we fought back when trailing in a game to come back and win, this made me very proud as a coach,” Coach Beau Wallace said.

To keep this winning streak going Wallace and Coach Mike Humphrey believe that it is mandatory to continue to force turnovers and score in transition. They also urge the team to play tough defense and have excellent ball movement on offense.

“We were able to beat the toughest competition, because of our ability to rally as a team and inflict multiple defensive stops which turned into easy points for us,” Humphrey said.

Broken Arrow values their team chemistry and knows that a strong atmosphere is crucial for a successful season. Wallace is confident that team chemistry is the most important part of any sport. It is more important than having the best players, and it allows you to win the tough games.

“Having good relationships with each other is vital to our success,” senior Major Smith said. “It allows us to trust each other more.”

Basketball will face the muskogee Roughers at Muskogee High School on Dec. 19 at 8 p.m. Admission is $3 for students and $5 for adults.
