Cole High School's boys' basketball team is making its sixth appearance in the state tournament and first since 2012. They play in the 2nd 3A semifinal against Dallas Madison on Thursday at 3pm. Winnie East Chambers faces Brock in the first 3A semifinal at 1:30 p.m. Thursday. The winners meet for the championship Saturday at 10 am.
You may or may not know that Shaquille O'Neal went to Cole. The Cougars went 36-0 and won the 3A state championship in 1989.
So he sent out a shout out to his school and the kids on the team and posted it on their Twitter account.
