Players of Note

 

Eli Harris Jenks 2018 Guard

Harris was the most athletic player on the quart. He is a good presence on the court for the Trojans and was a constant pest on the defensive end. On the offensive side of the ball Harris is raw. He showed flashes of some real talent, but could not hold it consistently throughout the game. He finished the game with 10 points.

 

Jaylin Oliver Bartlesville 2019 Wing

Oliver was the best player on the court. He showed athleticism and an ability to hit tough shots. In the first half while Bartlesville struggled he kept them in the game. Oliver has length and used it on both sides of the ball. He slashed to the basket and forced Jenks to either let him score or foul him. Oliver finished the night with 14 points.

 

Andrew Gronigan Bartlesville 2018 Guard

Gronigan shot the ball well for the Bruins from all levels of the court. He hit some big shots late in the game to swing momentum to his team. He also showed poise as he closed the game out at the free throw line in a tough game. Gronigan finished the game with 17 points.

 

Game 2 East Central vs Putnam City

Putnam City started strong in this game and never looked back. They were up by 32 points after the first quarter and coasted to a comfortable victory. City pressed Central throughout the first quarter and continued to force turnovers that led to easy baskets. Putnam City won the game 84-39.

 

Players of Note

 

Oscar Traylor Putnam City 2018 Guard

Traylor was the most athletic player on the court. He threw down some massive alley-oop dunks in the first quarter and coasted to a comfortable 10 points. Traylor is a tall guard that used his athleticism to terrorize other players on the defensive side of the ball. If Traylor can find a consistent shot he will be someone for JUCO’s to keep an eye on.

 

Trey Carolina Putnam City 2019 Guard

Carolina was the shooter on this Putnam City team. He kept finding open shots and hitting them. He was also a constant presence on the defensive side of the ball as was most of his Putnam City team. He scored the ball well in transition and finished the night with 21 points.

 

William Mcguire East Central 2021 Guard

East Central had a rough night all around. They started to score the ball better in the fourth quarter but it was far too late. Mcguire was the bright spot in East Central’s game. In the 2021 class, he still has 3 more years to develop and he could be dangerous. Mcguire finished the night with 10 points.

 

Game 3 Tulsa Central vs Westmoore

 

Westmoore started the game strong against a good Tulsa Central team. Creating turnovers and scoring easy buckets let to Westmoore extended its lead and showed the gap in depth between the two squads. By the end of the game, Westmoore only had one player in double figures but spaced its scoring out throughout the team. Westmoore went on the win the game 64-46 over Tulsa Central.

 

Players of Note

 

Will Graham Westmoore 2018 Guard

Not many expected Will Graham to be back after he suffered a broken leg in summer play, but Graham is back and playing well. Graham showed no signs of struggling with the leg as he ran his team’s offense to perfection. Graham was up an down the court and did not seem to tire as he scored nine points in Westmoore’s win over Tulsa Central.

 

Anthony Riley Westmoore 2019 Wing

Anthony Riley’s stock continues to rise after another impressive performance. Riley played lights out against Tulsa Central and led the game in scoring 15 points. Riley also had an impressive defensive showing. He was affecting shots on the defensive side of the ball and forced turnovers throughout the night. Riley will be a player to keep an eye on as he continues to improve.

 

Jaylen Thomas Tulsa Central 2019 Guard

Thomas had a big game for Tulsa Central. He led his team in scoring with 9 points and was a constant presence on the defensive side of the ball. He blocked shots throughout the night using his impressive frame to help him out. He was outmatched the entire night as Westmoore had more quality players than Central, but Jaylen proved his worth against a tough opponent.

 

Game 4 Broken Arrow vs OKC Storm

Broken Arrow and the OKC Storm sparred in the quarter of play tonight, finishing the quarter tied. Then the Storm took off in the second quarter opening up an eight point lead at the half. The Storm then extended their lead to double digits in the second half until Broken Arrow wanted to do its best Lob City impersonation as they had multiple alley-oop dunks throughout the second half. Broken Arrow rode the momentum and won the game 71-57.

 

Players of Note

 

Josh Robinson Broken Arrow 2018 Wing

 Robinson struggled in the first half as Broken Arrow as a whole struggled to find their rhythm. He found his swagger in the second half though, scoring 27 of his 31 points after intermission. He and Huffman combined time and time again with some monster dunks that got the crowd into the game. He also showed a touch from the outside hitting multiple 3’s to extend Broken Arrow’s lead in the fourth quarter. Robinson is a fun player to watch and will without a doubt be a threat to any team he faces.

 

Caleb Huffman Broken Arrow 2018 Guard

Huffman and Robinson led the comeback charge tonight. The two combined multiple times finding one another for some big dunks. Huffman hit huge 3-pointers when his team was trailing to get his team back in the game. He showed great vision and passing being able to find Robinson and together they helped Broken Arrow overcome a big deficit. Huffman finished the night with 21 points.

 

Trez Hankins OKC Storm 2018 Guard 

Hankins came out on the losing side tonight, but not because of his play. Hankins plays a big game for the Storm, but the team just fell apart in the second half after Broken Arrow went on a run. Hankins shot the ball well all night long and showed deep range as 15 of his 17 points came from beyond the arc. He showed good form and had composure to knock down shots throughout the night. He will be an interesting player to keep an eye on throughout the season.
