TULSA, Oklahoma – It was a battle of top 15 teams on Friday night in Bixby. And the game lived up to its billing.

Broken Arrowmade the trip over to Whitey Ford gym. And they got a rude welcome from the hometown Spartans. Bixby jumped out to an early lead and looked like they were in control.

But the Tigers eventually warmed up. And they were able to dig out of the early hole to come back and get the 46-43 win.

Both teams will be back in action on Tuesday night. Broken Arrow will make the trip to Union, while Bixby is back at home hosting Sand Springs.
