Topeka West and Highland Park were the only Topeka teams to earn a win in the final round of tournament play. The Chargers got back on track after losing two games in a row, doing it without Elijah BrooksElijahBrooks6'2" | CGTopeka West | 2022StateKS, who continues to struggle with injuries.

Here are some of Topeka’s top performances from Jan. 23:

Marque Wilkerson, senior, Topeka West:

From a supporting role as a junior, Wilkerson has established himself as one of the most important players in the city. The 6-foot-1 senior plays the point, the high post, shoots from the perimeter, breaks down defenders, sells popcorn and sweeps up after the game. His stat line in the win over Hayden Saturday was very impressive. He hit 9-12 from the field, including his only 3-point attempt, and 6-7 from the line to lead all scorers with 25.

Xavier Alexander, sophomore, Topeka West:

The sophomore has labored in the shadow of his big brother, Tre AlexanderTreAlexander6'3" | CGTopeka West | 2021StateKS, this season. But his role is growing with every game. Particularly in the absence of Brooks, the younger Alexander is being called on for a key contribution. The 6-foot sophomore has football-type physicality and is growing into the role.
