Carlbe Ervin, Edmond North

Height: 6-3

Position: Guard

Class: Senior

The story: Ervin powered one of the most impressive turnarounds of the season. Edmond North had been mired in a rut of single-digit wins the last few seasons, and Ervin, along with new coach Steven Goss, led them to a 15-11 record, falling two wins short of the state tournament. Ervin, who is deciding between Connors State and Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College, averaged 19.8 points, 7.1 rebounds and 6.4 assists.

Player of the Year

Shaquille Morris, Edmond Memorial

Height: 6-7

Position: Forward

Class: Senior

The story: Morris came into his own as a senior, averaging 17.1 points and 8.7 rebounds for the state champion Bulldogs. He seemed to be at his best when point guard Jordan Woodard was out with an injury or playing hurt late in the season. He had 20 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks in the state finals. And his future looks even brighter, having signed with Final Four participant Wichita State.

Cornell Neal, Midwest City

Height: 5-10

Position: Guard

Class: Senior

The story: Neal embodied all the qualities that made Midwest City good this year — an intense defender, capable scorer and strong passer who played with controlled aggression every minute he was on the floor. Neal averaged 14.1 points, 3.7 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game in leading the Bombers to the state finals. He's considering Murray State, Arkansas-Fort Smith and Southwestern, among others.
