Mac teams set to play at Peake today
OKLAHOMA CITY MacArthur's basketball teams will have a chance to play on the famed hardwood at the Chesapeake Arena on Monday when the Highlanders face Piedmont in a pair of matinee games as part of the Court of Dreams program.
The girls game begins at 12:15 p.m. and the boys game will start around 1:30 p.m.
The schools earned the right to play at the Peake by selling a certain number of tickets to tonight's Thunder game against the Charlotte Hornets or future Thunder games.
Ironically the two girls teams that will meet Monday just happen to be ranked No. 12 and No. 13 in the latest OSSAA rankings and both have played brutal schedules thus far in the young season.
Mac girls are 4-1 including a wild 81-73 victory over Putnam City North on Saturday in the Altus Festival. The Highlanders have also beaten Riverside, Duncan and Altus, with the lone loss coming to Eisenhower, Class 5A's No. 6 team, by the score of 55-52. last week.
