Tuttle comes in as a heavy favorite, as they shoot for their 15th straight Dual State title. Tough draw for the 4th and 5th seeds as Sulphur and Catoosa will face each other in a great 1st round dual to see who advances to the semifinals to probably face Tuttle.  Sallisaw, Cushing, Cache and Jay will battle it out to decide the finalist in the bottom half of the bracket. Cache comes in with a January 30 win over Class 5A #2 Elgin (54-24), while Sallisaw won a tough regular season battle with Cushing, winning 33-31 on December 14.
