Skyline High School's Fisher twins, Sam and Steve, combine for a defensive force to be reckoned with during basketball competitions so far this year.

The Skyline Thunderbird boys basketball team took on South Barber on Tuesday, January 21 in Pratt. The T-birds took control early and never looked backed, winning 85-45 over the Chieftains. Steve Fisher led the team with 22 points and 3 steals. Ryan Adams (11 points), Mark Schmidt (8 points, 3 steals), Tyler Wray (9 points), and Eliazar Carrasco (7 points) and were important contributors. Sam Fisher had a very balanced game without lighting up the scoreboard, dishing out 8 assists, grabbing 7 rebounds, while also stealing the ball 4 times.

On Saturday, January 25 the T-birds played in their first game of the 54 Classic Tournament held at Skyline against Cunnigham High School.
