ALL-TIME Winning Streaks in OKLAHOMA HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL

Updated: Mar 7, 2020



The longest winning streak for boys was, for many years, believed to be 75 by Nuyaka from 1938 to 1940. But it wasn't discovered until 1993 that it was not. The Daily Oklahoman’s Ray Soldan did some additional research and found that Nuyaka had lost a game on November 11, 1939 to Dale 25-21 snapping their streak. Nuyaka did go on to win 76 out of 77 games during those years but that discovery moved the 1957-1959 Byng streak of 67 to the top.
