Wrapping up 3A...
By Robert Przybylo
We continue our trip down memory lane. Monday, we looked at Class 2A where Pawnee reigned supreme.
Now let’s look at 3A where each had their own unique story.
Girls champion: Adair, 63-47 vs. Millwood.
Boys champion: Cascia Hall, 67-52 vs. Okemah.
Really thought the girls game was going to be one of those all-time classics. Can Millwood go back-to-back? Or could Kevi Luper go out in style after years of falling short?
It was the latter and by a wide margin. I wasn’t around when Luper was in her sophomore season, so I didn’t get all the hype.’
Last year, of course, she was out with the torn ACL, so she couldn’t do anything there.
But after watching her for two days, must say, I get it. I get why people gush over her talent.
Maybe it’s not the most accurate comparison, but I almost saw her like James Watson of Stringtown. Referees had no idea how to officiate someone of Watson’s skill at the B level.
And in the semifinals and finals, Luper was in ridiculous foul trouble because I don’t think refs knew what to do with her.
Luper made some fantastic moves, especially in the championship. She scored 30 points and thwarted every attempted Millwood comeback.
