NORMAN, OKLAHOMA - It is one of the more anticipated Class 6A girls basketball championship games.

Edmond North, winners of each of the last two Class 6A titles, will be seeking a third consecutive championship.

But standing in the way is Putnam City West, which handed the Lady Huskies their only defeat all season, winning in the title game of the Jenks-Union Invitational in January. PC West has also lost just once all season, to Edmond Santa Fe just a few days after defeating Edmond North.

The two teams also faced off in last season's 6A semifinals, with the Lady Huskies getting a narrow win en route to repeating their title.
