Consider me done...
By Robert Przybylo
That’s it. It is the end for me. I won’t see better basketball this year than I did in my two days at the Titan Classic at Carl Albert.
Whether it was Del City making a statement against Union (though a tired squad) or Midwest City getting a little of that swagger back, pretty fun way to spend a weekend.
Could have been home by 11 p.m., but technical difficulties have pushed me to the midnight hour.
I thoroughly watched five games, so…Here. We. Go.
Carl Albert 61, Millwood 53 (Boys): A consolation championship that would have worked fine as a championship at just about any other tournament, IMO.
This day belonged to Harrison Dupont. After being held in check Friday, Dupont went off today with 26.
Head coach Jay Price made a statement by not starting a couple of the guys for missing their shoot around time today.
I figured it would be like a minute or two. No, Price didn’t let those boys play the entire first quarter.
One person who did play was Trevante Porter. He brings energy to the team. I liken him to Joe Stoner from last year’s team in terms of energy. They’re going to give you everything they got. Scratch, claw for everything.
Millwood’s no slouch, though. The Falcons will be back.
Carl Albert 51, Millwood 40 (Girls): Titans make it 2-for-2 against the Falcons. There should be a huge asterisk on this one as Millwood played until 11:40 p.m. Friday and had to play this one at 4:00.
Dems the breaks.
Shea Bowden and JohVonna Mitchell looked like the only two Millwood girls with any pep in their step. And once Bowden got in foul trouble, knew it wasn’t good.
However, maybe the shooting of CA’s Madison Tollison would have carried the day anyway. She made six 3′s and was just in that rhythm.
Jourdan Clark added a couple of treys as the Titans stretched out the lead in the fourth to earn third place.
Guthrie 63, Union 46 (Boys): Wow. Keaton Callins or Donte’ Foster, take your pick. Union had its hands full with the Guthrie stars.
Callins duplicated Tollison’s feat with six 3′s of his own while Foster was slashing every which way.
Both teams played 2OT Friday, so chalking this one up to Guthrie being upset about losing for the first time this season.
Levi Giese of Union continues to impress me though. Solid outing from him.
You earn third in this tournament, you’ve done something.
Guthrie was down six in the second when a switch went on or something because it took control from that point on.
Del City 46, Union 37 (Girls Championship): I want to so bad give all the credit to DC, but maybe the 4OT game caught up with Union in the fourth quarter.
