The 53rd annual Tournament Of Champions has come to a close and OKPreps was there from start to finish. Here’s the best of the best with the All Tournament team, including the MVP from the tournament.
GABBY GREGORY – FORWARD – HOLLAND HALL (MVP)
No girl has ever had the three-day stretch at the Tournament Of Champions that Holland Hall’s Gabby Gregory just had. She scored more points than anyone in the history of the tournament with 98 points. In their win over 6A’s #1 Sand Springs, Gregory went off for 41 points. She also tied for the lead in rebound over the three days with 32.
DESTINY JOHNSON – GUARD – SAND SPRINGS
Despite Sand Springs going 0-3 during the Tournament Of Champions, junior guard Destiny Johnson was a bright spot in all three games. She continued to show why she’s one of the more athletic guards in the state. She averaged 15.3 points per game during the tournament. She led the tournament with 13 steals during the tourney and finished third in assists.
JESSI MURCER – GUARD – WESTMOORE
Westmoore’s Jessi Murcer was right there with Holland Hall’s Gabby Gregory as the most dominant players in the tournament. Murcer averaged 25.7 points per game as the Lady Jags went 2-1, winning the consolation final. After losing to Seiling in the first round, Murcer turned things around in a big way. She scored 25 points against Holland Hall and 28 points against Tahlequah.
KARLY GORE – FORWARD – SEILING
Take your pick between sisters Karly and Macy Gore and you won’t hurt our feelings. Both had fantastic tournaments but we’re going to give the nod to Karly here. Unfortunately, Macy hurt her knee on Thursday and was never really 100% after that. Karly stepped up when Macy went down. She averaged 13 points and 10.7 rebounds per game as Seiling won the 3rd place game for the second time in three years.
MYA BHINHAR – GUARD – OWASSO
Owasso captured the 2017 Tournament Of Champions title behind a balanced team effort on all three days. However, guard Mya Bhinhar was the floor general in charge of it all. She didn’t lead the team in scoring but filled up the stat sheet in every category. Bhinhar was a huge reason why the Lady Rams were able to capture the TOC title.
TAYLEN COLLINS – FORWARD – MULDROW
Muldrow fell short in the TOC championship game but things are looking up for the Lady Bulldogs. They have one of the best sophomores in the state in forward Taylen Collins. At 6’1, Collins was the most athletic players in the tournament, doing just about everything for Muldrow. She averaged 16 points per game over the three days and was among the tournament’s best at blocked shots.
