McALESTER — Both McAlester girls’ basketball coach April Burns and Grove girls’ basketball coach Richard Bassett have seen film of each other’s team. Having done so, both have come to the same conclusion.

“They’re big,” Burns said Wednesday. “They’re big and physical. They’re thicker and bigger than we are.”

Those bigger, thicker, 16-7 Lady Ridgerunners will take on the 10-11 Lady Buffaloes in the Class 5A regional semi-final tonight at 6:30 p.m. at East Central in Tulsa.
