It was never close on Saturday night in the opening round of the Class 4A playoffs. Mannford handled business against Fort Gibson nearly hitting the triple digits mark with both teams starters sitting the entire fourth quarter. Mannford took home the District Championship 94-55 continuing their undefeated season.

Fast Start

Mannford raced out to a 25-2 lead against Fort Gibson from the tip. The Tigers fought but could never get within striking distance after the lackluster start. The run was led by Jake Banfield at the Point. The pinpoint passes of Banfield set his teammates up for easy looks around the basket. The physical defense of Mannford gave Fort Gibson fits. It helped that the refs tonight allowed very physical play early in the game before tightening their while later on.

Cooper Hallman is blossoming

Hellman is a young prospect for Mannford that is blossoming before our eyes. This year Hallman has become the most skilled scorer on the team. It is clear his hard work in the gym is paying off not to mention it helps to have Banfield a ton at the Point. Hallman has a big summer ahead of him.
