Class 6A Boys Day 1 Roundup
BY RYAN ABER
Here’s a quick look at a wild day 1 at the Class 6A state boys basketball tournament in Skiatook.
First, the scores/stories (click the scores to read the full stories):
And tomorrow’s schedule:
Edmond Santa Fe vs. Putnam City, 9 a.m.
Midwest City vs. Putnam West, noon
Midwest City 60, Edmond Memorial 55 OT
It was over when: Trael Colbert was intentionally fouled attempting a layup (coming off a steal). The layup went in, to put the Bombers up 58-55 with 10 seconds left in overtime. Colbert made one of the free throws to stretch the lead to four, 59-55, with not enough time left for the Bulldogs to make a comeback.
Overlooked: While Trael Colbert’s magnificent final minute stole the show, for much of the game it was the Xavier McClish and Trez Colbert show. Midwest City was in trouble with 2 minutes left in overtimes, when Jared Jobe hit a pair of free throws to put the Bulldogs up 54-51. But 22 seconds later, McClish came up big yet again, nailing a 3-pointer from the top of the key that tied the game and set up Trael Colbert’s heroics.
Putnam West 53, Muskogee 41
It was over when: Amric Fields took over in the fourth. Fields scored 10 points in the quarter, including eight in a 14-0 run that stretched from the 5:52 mark (39-37 Muskogee) to the final minute (51-39 Putnam City West). Fields had a reputation last year of being less-than-aggressive at times but it was clear in the fourth that that was certainly no longer the case. Fields took the ball strong toward the basket, both creating his own points, cleaning up on the boards and hitting free throws that has Putnam City West in the semifinals for the second time in school history with a chance tof making the championship game for the first time.
