Lawton High boys trending upward as playoffs near

After the final buzzer sounded inside Wolverine Gym on Tuesday night, a small grin crept across Eric Wiley’s face.

The Lawton High boys basketball coach couldn’t help it. Things were finally starting to come together for his team, and he knew it.

All of the struggles, all the ups and downs the Wolverines have experienced during Wiley’s tenure seemingly came to a head on Tuesday when LHS defeated Class 6A No. 5 Midwest City, 62-60.

Talk about a statement win.

The Bombers (14-4) are one of the favorites to win it all this year as the state tournament approaches, and for good reason. Nearly all their wins have come against ranked opponents from multiple classes.
