Regionals began right here in Cushing last week where both Cushing Tiger and Lady Tigers played their first sub-regional basketball game on Friday, February 23rd. The boys faced off against the Bethany Broncos in the loser's bracket with just one of the teams able to move forward at the game's end; while - win or lose - the Cushing Lady Tigers will play again in Harrah on Saturday after their match against the Wetherford Lady Eagles.
In a sub-regional elimination game last Friday, Cushing Tiger boys took on Bethany and despite a 3 and 20 record for the season they still managed to give the Broncos (13/8) a run for their money. Tigers stayed close at the opponents heels through all 4 quarters but ultimately finished the game and their season with a final score of 30/49 in the Broncos' favor.
In a winner's bracket sub-regional game, district champions Lady Tigers (18/6) put up an incredible fight against Wetherford (14/8) but lost the lead in the final seconds of the match, wrapping up at 33/35 to the Lady Eagles.
