97th annual Grady County Basketball Tournament in the books
High School Boys Basketball was upset by AmPo in the first round of the 2015 Grady County Basketball Tournament, forcing the Longhorns into the Consolation bracket. Alex won their next two games against Ninnekah and Dibble to earn the Tournament's Consolation trophy.
The Alex Lady Longhorns went two and out in the 2015 Grady County Tournament. The team fell hard in the first round to highly-seeded Rush Springs, the defending girls champion who would go on to be defeated by Minco for the 2015 Championship. Alex was edged by Verden in second round play by only two points in a hard-fought and well-matched game. The 97th playing of the Grady County Tournament, Oklahoma's oldest continously played basketball tournament, saw the Minco girls win their first championship in 15 years.
