The fastest teams in the Pitt 8 tended to draw the most traveling violations, and they tended to overrun the basket more. A day after Kiowa’s semifinal loss to Haileyville, a Cowboy said he couldn’t wait to play the Warriors again on Kiowa’s home court on Feb. 6.

This court needed to be prepped better before the tournament, and it needed to be cleaned better during the week
