Player of the Year

Ryan Spangler, Bridge Creek

Height: 6-8

Position: Forward

Class: Senior

The story: No one in the state could fill up a stat sheet like Spangler. The Gonzaga signee averaged 29.2 points, 17.2 rebounds, 5.8 blocks and 4.8 assists per game in his senior season while leading the Bobcats to the state finals in their first trip to the state tournament.

Obi Emegano, Edmond Memorial

Height: 6-3

Position: Forward

Class: Senior

The story: Regarded as Class 6A's top player and toughest matchup, Emegano was Memorial's workhorse, averaging 16.6 points and 5.6 rebounds despite being asked to play out of position in order to best serve the team. He'll be a guard next season at Western Illinois, where he signed in November.

Devante Moore, El Reno

Height: 6-1

Position: Guard

Class: Senior

The story: There might not have been a player who had more on his shoulders and responded better than Moore. He averaged 22.7 points and 8.1 rebounds per game, and as the stakes got higher, Moore got better. He scored 39 in the area finals and 33 in the first round of state, ultimately carrying his team to a 5A runner-up finish. Also a talented football player, Moore is sticking with basketball for college but is undecided on his destination.
