Carl Albert's Gioya Carter is The Oklahoman's Big All-City Girls Basketball Player of the Year.

Carter, a 5-foot-9 guard, averaged 18.3 points and 7.4 rebounds in helping the Titans reach the Class 5A semifinals.

An Oklahoma signee, Carter also averaged better than three assists per game and more than two steals.

Carl Albert coach Tim Price called Carter the best player he's ever coached and the best player in the history of the school.

Deer Creek coach Totsy Manning is the Big All-City coach of the year after leading the Antlers to the Class 5A state title and a 27-2 record.

Carter is joined on the first team by Del City's Dionna Collins, Deer Creek's Ashley Gibson, Edmond Santa Fe's Tamara Lee and Piedmont's Sarah Parker.

Collins came back from a knee injury to average 18.5 points and 2.3 assists in helping the Eagles back to the 5A state tournament.

Gibson was dominant during the state tournament, earning Oklahoman state tournament most valuable player honors. For the season, the 5-foot-9 forward averaged 12.4 points and 4.2 rebounds.

Lee, a 5-foot-7 junior, was the leading scorer for the Wolves, averaging 15 points per game. She teamed up with point guard Cameerah Graves to give Santa Fe one of the best guard tandems in the state.

Parker, a 6-foot forward, averaged 17.1 points and 7.1 rebounds in helping the Wildcats to within one game of the state tournament in their first year in 5A.
