NOC Enid getting it done with 'ADDItude'

SALINA, Kan. — Prior to leaving for the NJCAA national women’s basketball tournament in Salina, Kan., the NOC Enid Lady Jets got some inspiration in the form of a pep talke from Addi Shamburg, the daughter of NOC Enid men’s basketball head coach Greg Shamburg.

Addi, 18, a senior at Oklahoma Bible Academy, has been fighting Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a form of cancer. She came by to talk to the team and encourage the squad prior to their trip.

“She is truly inspirational,” said NOC Enid Lady Jets head coach Scott Morris.

“What a strong, young woman to go through what she is going through.” Morris said Addi Shamburg “challenged the team to look at the big picture and it really put things in perspective.

“We all wanted to come out (to the tournament) and see what we could for her in return,” Morris said.

The Lady Jets found a way to do that and took her message with them on the road and showed their support by wearing warm up shirts before Tuesday’s game that read “ADDItude.”

The Lady Jets defeated Eastern Arizona 74-67 Tuesday, and now face undefeated Hutchinson (32-0) in today’s second round.쇓

  • Jeff Mullin mug 2012.jpg Rory McIlroy: There's a new tiger in town

    His father introduced him to the game when he was small, putting a golf club in his hand when he was barely past the toddler stage.
    He fell in love with it and worked hard, improving steadily. He became a terrific junior player and quickly improved.
    He was touted as the next big thing and didn’t disappoint.
    Now, at the tender age of 25, he is a multiple major champion.
    Tiger Woods? Yes, once upon a tee time. But now those words are being spoken about Rory McIlroy.
