Player of the Year
Ryan Spangler, Bridge Creek
The story: No one in the state could fill up a stat sheet like Spangler. The Gonzaga signee averaged 29.2 points, 17.2 rebounds, 5.8 blocks and 4.8 assists per game in his senior season while leading the Bobcats to the state finals in their first trip to the state tournament.
Obi Emegano, Edmond Memorial
The story: Regarded as Class 6A's top player and toughest matchup, Emegano was Memorial's workhorse, averaging 16.6 points and 5.6 rebounds despite being asked to play out of position in order to best serve the team. He'll be a guard next season at Western Illinois, where he signed in November.
Devante Moore, El Reno
The story: There might not have been a player who had more on his shoulders and responded better than Moore. He averaged 22.7 points and 8.1 rebounds per game, and as the stakes got higher, Moore got better. He scored 39 in the area finals and 33 in the first round of state, ultimately carrying his team to a 5A runner-up finish. Also a talented football player, Moore is sticking with basketball for college but is undecided on his destination.
Juwan Parker, Tulsa Washington
The story: Parker remained calm under the pressure of helping his team repeat as 5A state champs and in his expanding role as a team leader for the Hornets. As his game continues to grow, so does his interest from major college programs, with Oklahoma State, Tulsa and Minnesota already extending offers. He averaged 16.4 points and 10.8 rebounds per game.
Josh Richardson, Edmond Santa Fe
The story: A long, athletic guard who can impact the game on both ends of the floor, Richardson is one of the state's most well-rounded players. He averaged 16.5 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.6 assists while playing point guard much of his senior year. He's being recruited by Oklahoma, Tennessee, TCU and a few other major programs.
