An annual Oklahoma sports tradition will be back in play next month.
The 2015 roster for the girls and boys Oklahoma Indian All-State Basketball Games, set for June 20, was recently announced. The games, celebrating 20 years of bringing hundreds of the best Native high school athletes to compete against each other, will be played at Oklahoma Wesleyan University in Bartlesville, Okla.
“We had no way of knowing that an event we started 20 years ago to highlight the accomplishments of some of Oklahoma’s finest high school athletes and to encourage them to pursue college educations would last two decades,” Dr. Carol Conner, co-founder of the games, told NDNSports.com. “We are as excited today as we were 20 years ago to announce this year’s first and second teams.”
