After the first full week of games for several area basketball teams, there were some shakeups in the polls this week, and all of them were positive. Multiple teams rose in their respective polls, while there was a new team debuting as the weekly polls were released by the OSSAA. In Class 5A, the Ardmore Lady Tigers (3-0) rose two spots to No. 5 this week, after their undefeated start to the season. Ardmore is at Durant this evening at 6:30 p.m. The biggest jump of the week belongs to the Ardmore Tigers (4-1), who rose six spots to No. 11 this week in the boys 5A poll after their runner-up finish at the Southern Oklahoma Classic at Plainview. In the girls Class 4A poll, the Sulphur Lady Bulldogs rose one spot to No. 14 after their 3-0 start to the season in winning the Madill Winter Classic this past week. Following a 3-1 start to the season and a Consolation Championship at the Southern Oklahoma Classic tournament this past weekend, the Plainview Lady Indians entered the Class 4A poll at No. 19 this week. Plainview knocked previously ranked No. 18 Blanchard out of the poll, after a narrow three point victory Saturday night at the Plainview Activity Center. Plainview is at Marietta tonight beginning at 6:30 p.m.
