Sports THE JOURNAL, Thursday, February 7, 2013- B3 Michael Davis, Still- water High's veteran head boys' basketball coach, is passionate about tradition and passionate about Pio- neer Pride. Each season he talks to his team about Pioneer Pride and about the tradi- tion that has been a trade- mark of SHS athletics for years. It's hard to explain to current day student- athletes. At least it was until last Friday night when SHS capitalized on a long-range 'three pointer by junior Carson Teel with seven seconds left to nip Class 5A's top-ranked Oklahoma City McGuinness, 48-47, in front of a large, vocal Pio- neer Gymnasium crowd. The large crowd and stu- dent body, combined with SHS hosting basketball homecoming, resulted in a festive atmosphere when the final horn sounded. Students and players cel- ebrated and several posed for a group picture on the floor. It was a scene remi- niscent of the glory days of Pioneer basketball. It was a time when the old City Auditorium on the SHS campus was packed with fans, especially the student body, and would be rocking. It was a time when the product on the court was as good as any in the state and the players feasted off the supportive atmosphere. "That was the best crowd moved to do something we've had since we've been like that," he said. "I told in the new gym," Coach our team if we keep win- Davis said. "I told our ning the people will follow team after the game that us. To have a packed gym was the best example of supporting us when we Pioneer Pride I've seen in played the No. 1 team in a long time. Hopefully this Class 5A on homecoming win will help us with the was something special." playoff seedings." It was a special ending Coach Davis was so emotional afterward that he went to the scorer's table, took the microphone and thanked the crowd for sparking the team to the impressive victory. "You know I had to be for Teel, who was dogged throughout by a pesky McGuinness guard and didn't score until the end. With SHS trailing by two, Teel confidently launched a game-winning three- point shot. Tee1 and his teammates erupted in celebration, as did the crowd. "We set up a play to have him come off a pick. That was a long three, but we've seen him shoot from deeper than that," Coach Davis noted. "It was a confident shot by a team captain. That's the way this team has played this season. I'm the tallest guy on the team and I can't play so you know they have to have Pioneer Pride." Prior to the game, Coach Davis asked the student body to wear blazers in memory of the late Oklahoma State head women's basketball coach Kurt Budke. "Our student body was unbelieveable," Coach Davis said. "They all wore the blazers even the band came in wearing blazers. I couldn't believe it. The baseball players have been really supportive all season. That's the way it's supposed to be. When they play we'll be there to sup- port them." When the final horn sounded, Teel ran to share high fives with the students. So did junior Brett Budke, coach Budke's talented son. SHS has challenges ahead prior to the playoffs. But, they will face those challenges armed with motivation from a Pioneer Pride experience. 7th STROUD- The seventh grade Lady Demons won their bracket of the Stroud 7th & 8th grade tournament following a 27-25 triumph over Prague 'Saturday.
