This past week was filled with great games and a mega showcase of talent from all across the state. This time of year provides a great opportunity for great players to rise to the occasion. Here are your nominees for Oklahoma Player of the Week:
Kalib Boone 2019 Tulsa Memorial
Boone is one of the most talented big men to come out of Oklahoma in the last decade. At 6’9, Boone has all the tools of a great big man and he showed that this past weekend at the 2019 Oklahoma Classic Showcase against Midwest City on their home floor.
Boone dominated the game in all areas and finished with a team high 26 points.
Not only did he dominate in the half-court but he displayed his outstanding speed in transition. Not many big men want to play at the pace Boone does on the fastbreak.
The kid is a freak of nature who made a great case for the player of the week.
Cedric Rollerson 2019 Mount St. Mary’s
Rollerson has become on of the most dynamic scorers in 4A. The senior guard has taken his opportunity as “The Guy” and ran with it.
Rollerson dominated the Hoops for Hope tournament this past weekend as he put together a 34, 36, and 21 point performance. The kid is playing at a high level and he has led MSM to a 11-2 record so far.
He is a terror to stop in transition and he has a wealth of experience under his belt and he has taken full advantage of his senior season.
Jordan Thompson 2020 Southmoore
Jordan Thompson is the #14 ranked player in the 2020 Prep Hoops Oklahoma rankings and he is rising up the board quickly. The 5’10 junior is having a monster year for the Sabercats scoring from beyond the arc.
He dominated this past week against Norman scoring 21 points and helping Southmoore get a much needed victory after two consecutive losses.
Thompson has the ability to take over the game with his dynamic speed but also his ability to put the ball in the basket in a hurry.
Rondel Walker 2020 Putnam City West
Walker once again put on a show at the Oklahoma Classic Showcase scoring 28 points against the #1 ranked team in 3A. Walker looked at home on that Midwest City floor as he knocked down shot after shot from the perimeter.
In a showcase full of amazing talent, Walker stood out among the crowd because of his size on the perimeter at 6’5.
Walker performed at a high level the entire game and led his team over a talented Kingston team. Walker seems to always show up on this list and its because he performs well when the pressure is at it’s highest.
Jacob Germany 2019 Kingston
Germany is a 6’11 forward who can jump with the best of them but he is a skilled lefty whose skills are getting better. This senior center dominated the painted area on both ends of the floor.
Kingston knows their bread and butter and its Germany inside on a post up or drop off from penetration and they feasted on that formula this past weekend as the big man scored 30 points.
Although Kingston took a loss this past weekend, Germany did his part and dominated using his growing offensive skills and great feel for the game.
