Elk City basketball will tip off their season’s tonight on the road at Woodward. The Elkettes will be led by first year Head Coach Sean Hamm, who’s been on the staff for years before earning his chance to lead the program. He inherits a young team that’s got some experience but will have to figure out things as they go. What they lost in experience, they will gain in depth. The Elkettes figure to play a bunch of bodies throughout the season.
The Big Elks will enter Head Coach Sam Stephens’ second year with a group that’s played together but not in the roles they’ll be asked to fill this season. Multiple guys that played supporting roles in the past will have to step up and shoulder the scoring load in order to be successful this season. You’ll get your first chance to see both teams tonight.
If you can’t make it up to Woodward, we’ve got ya covered with live streaming and radio coverage on bigelktv.com and kool94. Pregame starts around 6:15 with the tip to come at 6:30.
