2017-18 Schedule: download pdf file (Note: This schedule is prepared before the season begins and is subject to change; rely on the PHS Boys Basketball Events Calendar on the right side of this page for up-to-date information on games and times).

2017-18 Prospectus: Head coach Billy Mack Steed enters his 11th season at PHS on the heels of an incredible 4-year run that saw the Wildcats post an overall record of 119-18 with three straight appearances at the regional tournament.  Steed has posted an overall coaching record of 504-177 in 22 previous seasons (273-59 at PHS).  However, 2017-18 figures to be an uncharacteristic rebuilding year with the departure of 4 of the 5 starters off the regional tournament finalists.  That includes a pair of all-state guards in Jalon Pipkins (who graduated) and Josh Robinson (who moved to Broken Arrow, OK).  Steed could depend on their combined 49 points per game scoring, and that won’t be easy to replace.  Junior point guard Cameron Jones returns to provide some stability, but the 2017-18 team will rely on defense, team depth, and an influx of young talent in an attempt to capture the school’s fourth straight district title.
