Douglass standout Dorrian Williams asked for the release from his letter of intent at Missouri State, but never finalized the paperwork, deciding that the Springfield school was still his best fit.
Williams signed with the Bears in November, but considered reopening his recruitment after coach Cuonzo Martin left for Tennessee last month. New MSU coach Paul Lusk came to Oklahoma City to meet with Williams shortly after getting the job.
Williams averaged 12.4 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.7 steals as a senior. He was a key player for the Trojans all four years of his high school career, helping them to back-to-back state titles the last two seasons.

TRANCKINO HELPING MEMORIAL SURGE
At the end of March, the Edmond Memorial baseball team was 2-11 and in the middle of a six-game losing streak. The Bulldogs are 14-3 since and have gone from being unranked to No. 17 in Class 6A. One big reason has been the return of Wes Tranckino. He missed 11 games because he had four impacted wisdom teeth removed. He also fractured three bones in his face after a bad hop March 21. Tranckino began playing again during the Bulldogs' win in the Mayor's Cup against Southmoore that secured the Cup for Edmond. Edmond Memorial is looking for its best win of the season against eighth-ranked Yukon on Saturday.
IRISH NAB CROWN
Bishop McGuinness senior Ashleigh Chiaf defeated Edmond North's Ann Pepper 6-4, 6-3 in the No. 1 singles championship to give the Irish the team championship at the Edmond Tournament on Wednesday. The match was literally winner-take-all as the Irish and Huskies were guaranteed a one-two finish with the winner taking home the crown.
“This was a real big win for our girls,” coach Vicki Connelly said. “They worked real hard, and it was a grind.”
The Irish also received a No. 2 singles championship from Trinian O'Neil. Enid won both of the doubles titles.
