Suburban: Balanced Jets have made a believer...
By Robert Przybylo
Fellow writers Scott Wright and Ryan Aber have been pretty high on Western Heights all season. I, however, have not been impressed.
I had seen Tyrone Nash’s club four times before Saturday in the Suburban Conference championship and came off with more of a ‘meh’ than anything else.
Until Saturday…wow, so that’s what they can do.
Fifth place: El Reno 64, Chickasha 44
Third place: Guthrie 48, Harrah 27
Championship: Western Heights 72, Carl Albert 55
Western Heights 72, Carl Albert 55
Never have I seen so few people score but still be so balanced. Western Heights had four players finish in double figures and ran the Titans out of the building.
It started with Alton Whittaker, and he was the biggest difference to me. I’ve seen D.J. Taylor and Devin Aughenbaugh step up time and time again.
But Whittaker, that was something else. He’s got another gear, and he’s got great control when he gets in amongst the trees. He finished with a team-high 22 points.
Carl Albert just missed way too many ‘bunnies’ (TM Steve Lavin). Whether it was the presence of Aughenbaugh or what, too many missed easy ones.
You might be able to get away with that in the first half, but once it continued in the second half, the writing was on the wall.
Aughenbaugh finished with 17 points while Dustin Giles had 18 points and Kenny Mayfield hit three 3s in the second half to close out with 13 points.
