The players listed below were among the three most impressive sharpshooting performers at the Bartlesville Tournament last weekend. Though I was not in attendance at the tournament, I gathered statistics, video and testimony from numerous coaches from the event. Listed in no order:

MVP Jimmy earned his second consecutive tournament M.V.P award last weekend in Bartlesville after leading the Titans to wins against Tulsa McLain, Bixby and, for the second weekend in-a-row, Midwest City in the championship.

In his best scoring performance of the weekend, Locke tallied 21 points with five-made 3-pointers for the Titans in the semi-final game against Bixby.

One thing about Locke that sets him apart from the scores of other talented shooters in the state is his ability to hit long-range 3-pointers, sometimes so deep that they could net from professional-range.

Because of this skill, Locke not only puts points on the board for the Titans, but he also spread the floor and depopulates the interior of defenders, which helps his post teammates score more frequently and with more consistency.
