Hoop dancing legal in LawtonOctober 30th, 2007
Folks in Lawton are getting excited about their new team:
The Oklahoma Cavalry is a professional basketball team based in Lawton, Oklahoma. The original team (based in Oklahoma City) competed in the Continental Basketball Association from 1990 to 1997, when they were League Champions. A new team (previously to have been called the Oklahoma City Cavalry) is set to begin play in 2007-08. The team was originally scheduled to play in the American Basketball Association. The team will be coached by Micheal Ray Richardson (former Albany Patroons coach who was fired for stereotypical Jewish comments), and was going play at Abe Lemons Arena on the campus of Oklahoma City University before Lemons Arena backed out. Due to the lack of support and the city’s desire for a NBA team, the team decided to look elsewhere to place the franchise. The team will play in Lawton at the Great Plains Coliseum.
Team tryouts are over. I don’t know who the players are, but the Cav Dance Team …
…include Crystal Celsur, Allee Cox, Michelle Greear, Kristie Ihler, Jada Jedlicka, Natasha Mays, Cherisse Miller, Kassidy Skinner, Michelle Stewart and Eshell Williams.
