Edmond POW: Deer Creek girls basketball team...
By Robert Przybylo
I can’t write a story like I did in Monday’s paper and then act like I can differentiate between who is the best player on the Deer Creek girls basketball team.
For that reason, giving it to the group as a whole as Totsy Manning’s girls became the first Deer Creek team to win the Bruce Gray Invitational.
If you didn’t check it out, here’s the story.
After day 1, it was Ashley Gibson. She’s got some serious game as a freshman and is close to being ready to take over already.
But her second game was marred by foul trouble, and senior A.J. Miller was incredible, including hitting the game-winner in the final 10 seconds.
However, you can’t discount what sophomore Jalyn Jackson did in the championship. She was a force in the first half and finished with 17 points.
Older sister, Jasey Jackson, wasn’t too bad, either. She hit four 3s in the semifinals and hit the championship-winning free throw against Putnam North.
So, who do you choose? You don’t, but the balance of Deer Creek is phenomenal. It really is pick your poison when you face these girls.
Obi Emegano, Memorial, Basketball: Big week for the Bulldogs with wins at Norman North and win vs. rival Edmond North. Emegano has been fantastic and could claim next week’s award with big outing Tuesday at Santa Fe (I’ll be there).
