Basketball Playoffs

State Basketball Tournament

March 26, 2020—1:30 p.m.—On March 25, the State Superintendent announced that all public schools would remain closed until the end of the academic year for each respective public school. The academic year for schools will end between May 8 and May 15.

In conjunction with this decision the OSSAA Board voted unanimously, at the March 26, 2020 Teleconference Board Meeting, to cancel the State Basketball Tournament for Classes 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A and 6A; additionally, all spring activities have been cancelled for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.

This is an unprecedented situation, resulting in heartbreaking cancellations and adjustments. Thank you for all that each of you do for our students – in the good times and in the more challenging times like these.

Sequoyah girls AND boys qualified for state for the 8th consecutive year. All Sequoyah games will be at the Big House (Jim Norick Arena, OKC State Fairgrounds, intersection of I-40 and I-44) except boys will play at Oklahoma City University (2501 N. Blackwelder Ave.) Thursday.
