Wrapping up 5A...
By Robert Przybylo
Now we’re getting to the big boys. 5A and 6A just have a different feeling about them. It’s tough to explain.
Boys champion: Guthrie, 47-45 vs. Thomas Edison
Girls champion: Booker T., 42-40 vs. Carl Albert
Did not see the girls game live, but I watched it Sunday on Fox Sports Oklahoma (how’s that for a shameless plug?). I gushed about Taleya Mayberry after her outing in last year’s championship vs. Coweta.
A year later and nothing’s changed. She’s a fighter. She makes some plays where you go “yep, she’ll be playing somewhere in college.”
That final sequence was crazy, made me wish I was there live. Mayberry goes for the steal, which leads to Booker T. needing to play help defense.
That leaves Desiree Bradley open in the corner for the championship-winning three. It’s off, Kylie Mayes of CA gets the rebound, put back doesn’t go, and that’s it.
Credit goes to the Titans for pushing Booker T. like no other team and huge kudos go to Booker T. for displaying the heart of a champion. BTW had hardly been tested all season but showed when it was, it could deliver with its second straight title.
