The Class 4A State Tournament started yesterday at Deer Creek High School. Prep Hoops was on the scene to cover the games. Here are the standout performances from a big day of hoops.
Trey Alexander: 6’3 G 2021 Heritage Hall (24 points)
Alexander dominated the game against Tulsa McLain scoring 24 points to lead all scorers. The freshman star got past his defenders whenever he wanted too and even showed his ever improving outside shot.
Mike Dillon: 6’3 F 2018 Catoosa (17 points)
Dillon was all over the place for Catoosa scoring 17 points in their close loss to Roland. The forward was on of the hardest working players on the floor and that hustle turned into buckets. Dillon was usually fed the ball in the high post where he would face-up and drive to the basket.
Shem’Mario Stephens: 6’2 G 2018 Seminole (24 points)
Stephens didn’t start off the game well, but was able to finish with 24 points in a loss to Tulsa Webster. The senior guard shot the ball well from outside and was able to get to the basket and create contact.
David Ward: 6’5 Wing 2018 Tulsa Webster (24 points)
Ward had one of the more dominating performances in Tulsa Webster’s win over Seminole scoring 24 points. The senior wing showed his elite outside shot and was unstoppable anywhere around the basket. Ward will have to continue with these types of performances is Tulsa Webster is going to win the Gold Ball.
Jett Sternberger: 6’1 PG 2019 Kingfisher (16 points)
Sternberger showed great leadership in a hard fought win over Ada. The junior guard scored a team high 16 points and was able to calm the Yellow Jacket offense anytime emotions got high. Sternberger continues to show why he is considered one of the best leaders in the state.
Kobe Burgess: 6’1 PG 2019 Ada (21 points)
Burgess had one of his best performances to date in a close loss to #1 Kingfisher. The junior guard led his squad with 21 points, but it was his defense that really stood out. Burgess was an absolute menace on the ball and was constantly getting steals. His best plays were in transition when he would continually block opponents shots.
