“It feels good to know we have other players that can take over,” said Stephen Clark, who has played with a nagging wrist injury since early January. “If I’m not able to come back, we’ll be fine. We’ll do all the necessary stuff and hopefully I’ll be able to come back (Friday).”

The Trojans (25-3), looking for their fourth straight gold ball in Class 4A, advanced to the semifinals, where they’ll face the Victory Christian-Harrah winner at 4:30 p.m. Friday at State Fair Arena.

Muldrow was led by Dominic Blue with 18 points and Nate Hamilton with 15, concluding its year at 20-9.

Stephen Clark’s 16 points upped his career total to 3,236 points, now in seventh place all-time.

The current all-time scoring leaders in state history are: Rotnei Clark, Verdigris, 3,758; Keiton Page, Pawnee, 3,709; Ty Harman, Maud, 3,639; Kelenna Azubuike, Victory Christian, 3,530; Dalen Qualls, Stratford, 3,290; Lane Adams, Red Oak, 3,251; Stephen Clark, Douglass, 3,236; Kenneth Johnson, Grandfield, 3,191.
