OGBCA All-State Games
The East loomed large (and middle) last Saturday at the Oklahoma Girls Basketball Coaches Association All-State game at Weatherford High School.
The eastern part of the state took two of the three contests, winning the large school game (5A and 6A) 47-38 and the middle school game (3A and 4A) 54-42.
The West salvaged the weekend for the small schools (B through 2A) with a 69-49 victory over the East in their contest.
Shawnee's Taylor Cooper led the way for the East in the large school game with 13 points as she and her teammates outscored the West 24-17 in the fourth quarter to help break open a close game.
Lashanda Green of McAlester chipped in with 10 points while the West was led by Edmond Memorial's Sydney Hill's eight points.
A balanced attack helped the Middle East to its win as no player reached double figures but 10 players scored. Kansas' Kelsey Barnwell led the way with nine points.
The East built its lead in the second and third quarters, outscoring the West a combined 32-19 in that stretch.
Te'Era Williams of Douglass led the West with 14 points.
The Small West got big second- and fourth-quarter efforts to pull away in its contest. Tied after a quarter, the West outscored the East 20-13 in the second and then extended its lead with a 25-15 run in the final frame.
Jamie Brown of Chattanooga and Shayla Williams of Northeast led the West with 11 and 10 points, respectively.
Oktaha's Whitney Brown paced the East with 10 points.
