Booker T. Washington Girls Secure 6A State Championship Over Bixby
TULSA, Okla. (AP) -
Kaylan Mayberry scored 22 points to lead No. 6 Tulsa Booker T. Washington to a 52-46 win over third-ranked Bixby in Class 6A Girls state championship game at Oral Roberts' University's Mabee Center.
BTW took the lead for good in Saturday's game with a layup by Sandy Samilton with just more than two minutes to play and MaKenzie Ellis' two free throws with 30.4 seconds left iced the game for the Hornets.
The state title is the third in six seasons for the Lady Hornets (27-2).
The Lady Spartans (21-8) had the ball with a chance to tie or take the lead when they turned the ball over and Ellis was eventually fouled - leading to the clinching free throws.
Stevi Parker led Bixby with 13 points and Christian Devers added 11 for the Lady Spartans.
