And things went pretty much true to form, as Butler (9-0, 4-0) jumped to a 40-18 halftime lead and cruised to an 88-44 victory at the Power Plant. Pratt changed coaches shortly before the season began and only dressed out six players.

Capron parade and Thanksgiving

Great job, Capron, Oklahoma, local Randy McCullough for arranging the parade in Capron on Thanksgiving Day! There were about 20 different things in the short but fun parade. Didn't ever find a video of it, but did see some pictures on Facebook. The infamous Ric Towns family Grinch and Elves made it, along with Alva's visiting dignitary, Arden Chaffee, and wife Nicki. It looked like all had a blast. Thanks to all that attended, and see you next year. I hope you and yours had a great Thanksgiving holiday.
