Douglass point guard Stephen Clark is expected to play Friday, despite an ankle injury suffered in Thursday's victory in the first round of the Class 4A boys state basketball tournament.


An hour before the Trojans' 4:30 p.m. tipoff vs. Victory Christian in the semifinals, Clark was receiving treatment and getting his ankle wrapped by trainers while his teammates were going through pregame shootaround.

Douglass is in pursuit of its fourth consecutive state championship. Clark, an Oklahoma State signee, is averaging 36 points and 12 assists per game as a senior, and recently became the eighth player in state history to reach 3,000 career points.
