ere was the big inside battle between Star’s Josh Davis and Bishop McGuinness’ Daniel Orton.

In the 6A girls title game, two programs that are intimately familiar with each other met with underdog Del City finally getting the upperhand and wrecking Midwest City’s undefeated season.

There was Guthrie coming from behind against Tulsa Edison, led by a pair of players who were crucial to Guthrie’s football success the last two seasons — Donte’ Foster and Keaton Callins — to win a second consecutive state basketball title.

Finally, there was Putnam City, with plenty more talent in excess of Henry and Hardrick. The Pirates shed the label of not being able to win the big one since All-Stater Keith Clark left with a title in 2006, Henry’s freshman season.

"They both feel like they’re mine, but I really wanted this one after the last two years,” Henry said. "This isn’t just mine, though, it’s for everybody. This week, we came together, and everybody did what they had to do to win.”
