Just days before the holiday break and winter moratorium, the defending state champs from Omaha South traveled to play the short-handed Thunderbirds at Bellevue West high school. The game got off to an ugly start, with both teams struggling to put the ball in the basket. Some of Bellevue West’s struggles can be attributed to missing their point guard and one of the states top prospects, Chucky Hepburn, due to concussion. Both teams fought hard, but ultimately Omaha South’s defensive pressure and intensity got them the 71-49 win. Here are the awards and players to watch going forward from Omaha South at Bellevue West.
