— It will be Edlam in Saturday's Class 6A girls basketball state championship game.

With a 46-34 win over Sapulpa on Friday at the Mabee Center, No. 4 Edmond Memorial advanced to Saturday's 1:45 p.m. title game, where it will meet rival Edmond Santa Fe, the top-ranked team in Class 6A and defending state champion.

Senior Alie Decker, a Wichita State signee, led the Bulldogs (22-5) on Friday. Sapulpa, playing in its first state tournament since 2008, finished its season with a 20-8 record.

Santa Fe (27-0) advanced to the championship game by holding off No. 2 Midwest City 49-46 in overtime earlier Friday. After that game, Wolves star Courtney Walker talked about what an all-Edmond title game would mean.

“It's great because it just shows how strong Edmond is right now,” Walker said. “You've got the boys competing big right now, too.”

The Edmond Memorial boys punched their ticket to the 6A title game, which will be played at 7:45 p.m. Saturday, earlier Friday with a win over Tulsa Edison, and the Santa Fe boys played Tulsa Union late Friday in the other semifinal, leaving open the possibility that both games would feature the two Edmond schools.
