OKLAHOMA CITY — Will Slater hit a bucket early in the third quarter of Thursday’s Class B quarterfinal matchup with Calumet to give the Tyrone Bobcats a 37-34 lead.
It would be the last lead the Bobcats would enjoy for the 2017 season.

The Calumet Chieftains proceeded with a 21-2 run that lasted the rest of the third quarter and most of the fourth to end Tyrone’s season with a 62-46 win over the Bobcats at Jim Norick Arena. Calumet (23-4) advanced to this morning’s state semifinals against top-ranked Kinta. Tyrone finished 25-4.
