MVP: Stephon Hall 2018 Mount Saint Mary Point Guard
Friday night was the final time Hall will step on the floor at Mount Saint Mary as a Rocket he made sure he left with a great memory. Hall could not be stopped scoring at all three levels very efficiently. Kellyville struggled to handle the movement of Hall without the basketball in his hands. Hall continues to rise in the Oklahoma 2018 Class he will be a steal for the small college program that lands him.
Offensive Player of the Game: Cedric Rollerson 2019 Mount Saint Mary Point Guard
Rollerson has turned his play up to another level this year. Mount Saint Mary uses Rollerson perfectly in a two Point Guard offense. Rollerson can fill it up from all three levels. The best attribute of Rollerson is how good he is at creating for his teammates and making their play elevate. Rollerson is one of the more underrated players in the Oklahoma 2019 Class. NCAA Division II programs will want to get him on there radar.
Defensive Player of the Game: Lorenzo Jones 2019 Mount Saint Mary Forward
Jones was huge tonight for Mount Saint Mary anchoring the paint. He posted several blocks setting the tone early that there was not going to be any easy baskets on his watch. Jones is a strong, physical 6’5 Forward that will be key to the playoff run for the Rockets. If Mount Saint Mary is going to win the Class 3A Gold Ball Jones defense will be counted upon in the post especially if they end up facing Kingston.
Bright Spot: Jordan White 2019 Kellyville Forward
White struggled on Friday night in large part due to the inability of Kellyville’s guards to get him the basketball. At the four spot, White is a sharp, strong looking athlete with some potential in the 2019 Class. He is the classic would have been a Wing in Texas but due to no size in Oklahoma, he plays in the Post. White was tough on Friday night never giving in and fighting for each point. He led his team with 15 points. Going forward White will need to work on his ball-handling skills and jumper to take his game to the next level. The good thing for the athletic 6’4 Forward is he still has time. Kellyville has found their star for the rest of this and next season.
Best Coaching Move: Coach McCoy bringing the pressure
The best coaching move of the night was Kellen McCoy the head coach at Mount Saint Mary bringing full-court pressure from the start of the game. Kellyville struggled turning the ball over left and right. The turnovers helped Mount Saint Mary build a huge lead early in the game that was way too much for Kellyville to overcome.
