    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.  — On a balmy morning in south Florida, Baker Mayfield and his Oklahoma teammates goofed around beneath the swaying palms as they posed for a picture in front of the Orange Bowl logo, their tight bond forged by the ups and downs of a long season — the grueling practices, the lonely hours in the weight room, the incessant scrutiny that comes with playing in a high-profile program.

    For the Sooners, though, it goes deeper than that.

  • Stu: Locals advance to semis

    No “Sunshine League” for Las Vegas’ two boys’ high school basketball teams in this year’s Stu Clark Tournament. 

    West Las Vegas and Robertson both advanced to the semifinals of the 62nd annual holiday tourney by dispatching Kirtland Central and Miyamura, respectively, in Monday’s opening round at the Wilson Complex.

    Joining them in the championship bracket were Bernalillo and Silver, who defeated West Mesa and defending champion St. Pius X in Monday’s matinee matchups.

    Could this be the year Robertson and West Las Vegas meet for the coveted Stu Clark Tournament championship?
    Don’t be too surprised if it happens, because both teams are off to a strong start. But there are some solid teams — including defending champ St. Pius X — that could prevent that dream final from taking place.

  • A look at the tournament teams

    A look at the eight teams vying for the 62nd annual Stu Clark Tournament championship:

    BERNALILLO: With the exception of hometown teams Robertson and West Las Vegas, no other school has as much experience playing in the Stu Clark as Bernalillo. Moreover, the Spartans have already played a couple fellow teams in this year’s field, winning twice against Miyamura and losing one to Class 5A contender St. Pius X. With eight seniors and one junior leading a savvy, sharp-shooting lineup, Terry Darnell has his Spartans off to a 3-4 start.
