All-Tournament teams

Class 6A boys

MVP: Shawn Olden, Tulsa Union

Olden’s value is underrated because Union’s big men get most of the attention, but he showed his true worth in leading the Redskins to their third state title with 20 points and nine rebounds in the final against Putnam City West.

The team

Shawn Olden, Sr., Tulsa Union, 19.7

Carson Meier, Sr., Tulsa Union, 12.3

Omega Harris, Sr., Putnam City West, 14.7

Stephen Edwards, Sr., Putnam City West, 12.7

Torey Noel, Sr., Midwest City, 19.0

Class 6A girls

MVP: Toree Thompson, Broken Arrow

Thompson scored five points in the final 25 seconds to thwart Choctaw’s upset bid in the semifinals, and then sparked the Tigers’ big second-half run to pull away from Edmond Santa Fe for the title.

The team

Toree Thompson, Sr., Broken Arrow, 22.0

Jordan Doyle, Sr., Broken Arrow, 9.7

Tamara Lee, Sr., Edmond Santa Fe, 18.7

Aahliyah Jackson, So., Edmond Santa Fe, 12.0

Ana Llanusa, Fr., Choctaw, 27.5

Class 5A boys

MVP: R.J. Diggs, Tulsa Memorial

With 12 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter of the state title game, Diggs powered the Chargers to a second straight Class 5A crown. The 5-foot-10 guard added eight rebounds, too.

The team

R.J. Diggs, Sr., Tulsa Memorial, 14.7

Demari Edwards, Sr., Tulsa Memorial, 14.3

Will Lienhard, Jr., McGuinness, 15.7

Brian Canfield, Sr., McGuinness, 18.7

Cameron Warren, Sr., Carl Albert, 37.0

Class 5A girls

MVP: Dakota Vann, Deer Creek

With her best performance on the biggest stage, Vann had 17 points and 17 rebounds in the Antlers’ 31-28 overtime victory against Tulsa East Central. Deer Creek won the gold ball a second consecutive season.

The team

Dakota Vann, Jr., Deer Creek, 16.0

Whitney Jones, Sr., Deer Creek, 7.7

Janee Arnold, Sr., Tulsa East Central, 15.7

Sharayla Brown, Jr., Tulsa East Central, 12.0

Jordan Gilbert, Sr., Carl Albert, 17.0

Class 4A boys

MVP: Antonio Wilson, Douglass

Stevie Clark’s replacement shined during the tournament alongside Trey Sanders, but it was his fourth-quarter performance in the quarterfinals and his guidance down the stretch in other games that helped the Trojans win their fifth straight title.
