I am sure many Bears fans will disagree, but, the Ok Valley Game was a fantastic game. It's unfortunate that only one team from the Ok makes the big show.
Mt Bouchiere hosted the Valleys and did not disappoint. The atmosphere was electric and what basketball was all about. The bleachers were filled with 75% bear fans and a very conservative 25% KSS Owl fans. The Bears had lost 2 games to KSS already this yr and was not willing to accept defeat to a formidable foe. The bears and thier crowd took control of the game and KSS found themselves in foul trouble and behind 20 points at the half.
The start of the 3rd did not look good for KSS. Both teams commiting turnovers and not finishing scoring opportunities. Leaving many chances for the Bears to close the door on KSS. KSS lost a couple of players to fouls and when it all seemed over.the Buzz and Parker show took over. KSS took the offensive and the bears could not recover, many bears stood out in the contest, Tubbs,Johnson , and a few others ,however, the KSS squad was very composed and capable when the heat was on. Unfortunately, the Bear were not able to overcome the intense pressure from KSS.
