Riverside beats Sequoyah in well-attended matchup

More than 8,000 fans, most of them Native American, attended an historic basketball game between two Indian schools in Oklahoma.

The matchup between Riverside Indian School and Sequoyah-Tahlequah High School was only a first round in the state's Class 3A tournament. But proud fans and family of both teams turned out in large numbers to show their Native pride.

The game was broadcast in Cherokee on KTLQ AM-1350. The Sequoyah-Tahlequah is an historically Cherokee school but open to students of all tribes.

The game, though, went to Riverside 58 to 51.
