Sailing off into the sunset:

Cyril clips rival Fort Cobb, 57-52, to win Class A state title

OKLAHOMA CITY — Cason McLemore had never touched a shimmering Gold Ball before let alone kissed the basketball state championship trophy.

In the final game of the 2,000-point scorer’s career on Saturday afternoon in Jim Norick Arena, McLemore got to do both.

“I’ve never held one of these Gold Balls before,” laughed Cason McLemore, who sank seven 3-pointers — five of which came in the first quarter — and scored 25 points to lead Cyril to the Class A state championship — it’s first state title since 1938 — in a thrilling 57-52 revenge win over rival Fort Cobb-Broxton at the State Fairgrounds.
