Atoka basketball legend gives Wampus Cats state tournament advice

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK -- Crystal Robinson is considered the greatest women's basketball player to ever come out of Oklahoma, and she played her high school ball at Atoka leading the Lady Wampus Cats to the 1992 state championship.

That's the only athletic title in school history, but now their boys team is only three wins away from changing that.

We caught up with Robinson today, who's an assistant coach at Utah State.

She says she couldn't be prouder of the boys and would offer her best advice.

"Live in the moment, take each possession as it comes and to play each possession like it could be your last game ever and I think when you play from that place you make up for any mistakes that you might make. That would be my best advice for them, just to take each possession and play each possession like it's the last game of their career," she said.

Atoka will play Oklahoma Centennial tonight at 7 at Carl Albert.
