“If their guys are more athletic and faster than us, we’ll just back off and guard them at the 3-point line, make them beat us on the outside,” Zike said. “We’ll run very little zone.”
Though its season doesn’t start until Tuesday, McAlester will hold its annual Bob Brumley Thanksgiving Scrimmage on Saturday. Six teams — McAlester, Byng, Latta, Okemah, Pryor and Silo — will attend, with each team playing three games either at main or practice gyms at Brumley.
McAlester plays Silo in the main gym at 9 a.m., Latta in the practice gym at 10 a.m. and Pryor in the practice gym at 11 a.m.
“We’re going to do some things different than we have, but we’re going to just try to go out and compete and play hard,” Zike said.
After Hugo, McAlester next plays at Muldrow on Dec. 10. McAlester next plays at Brumley on Dec. 20 against Ardmore.
