Bearcats go into District Playoffs with 16-4 record!
February 8th, our Bearcats took on the Coalgate Wildcats. This game was much like the Colbert game and was obvious early in the game that it would be an easy win for our Bearcats. Sr. Guard Harlan House was the leader in stats for this game, with 9 points alone in the first half, with Jr.’s Tanner Brown and Morgan Nabors right behind him with 7 and 6 points respectively. The first period ended with a score of 12-5 Antlers, and as apparent as it was that it would be an easy win, our Bearcats didn’t hold back only allowing the Coalgate offense 3 points in the second period ending the half 29-8 Antlers.
Sr. Forward Chandon Draper had the most points for the second half with 8 points , 3 rebounds. Sr.’s Harlan House, and Caleb Smith as well as Jr. Tanner Brown each had 4 points for the second half. The Wildcats picked up the pace in the second half but their efforts just weren’t enough and our Bearcats were able to chalk up another win with and end score of 56-30. Great Job Bearcats!!

Bearcats Celebrate Sr. Night with a Win!
Tuesday February 12th the Talihina Golden Tigers traveled to Antlers to take on our Bearcats in their last regular season game of the year. The first time we were scheduled to meet the Tigers they won over our Bearcats by a 5 point margin, so our Bearcats were out for home court redemption. The first half played out very closely with Sr. Forward Bryce Martin scoring 12 points and Jr. Guard Tanner Brown with 5 in the first half alone. Sr. Forward Bryce Martin was also leading scorer for the second half with 13, and Sr. Guard Harlan House right behind him with 9 for the second half.
This night was special for our Bearcats, it being the last regular season game against a rival team at home, but it was Sr. Night for our Bearcats as well, and this gave them the little extra motivation they needed to pull out a victory in the second half with an end score of 53-46 Antlers. This puts our Bearcats going into District Play-Offs with a 16-4 record, and they are matched to play Coalgate at Coalgate.
