What: Class 4A Boys State Championship

When: Saturday – 5:45PM

Where: The Big House – Oklahoma City Fairgrounds

Heritage Hall and Kingfisher will square off for the Class 4A gold ball. Kingfisher is undefeated and looking for not only a perfect season, but a second consecutive state championship. Heritage Hall has been absolutely dominant during this run to the state championship game. They beat McLain in the quarterfinals by 34 points and followed that up with a semifinal win over Roland by 37 points. Needless to say, Saturday’s championship game with Kingfisher will more than likely be a little closer. Kingfisher’s run to the championship game, and an undefeated season hasn’t been without challenges. They’ve played a tough schedule throughout the season and has come out on top. They came into the year as the favorite to defend their title, returning several key players off last year’s team. Heritage Hall will also be out for a little revenge when they square off. Kingfisher eliminated the Chargers in the area consolation bracket last year, on their way to their first state title in school history.

Road To Championship Saturday

Player To Watch: Trey Alexander – Guard
Heritage Hall has several players to watch. How could they not with a team that has won their first two state tourney games by 30+ points? Senior guard Jon Matthews recently went over 1,000 points for his career but the best player on the floor is freshman sensation Trey Alexander. The Charger standout is widely considered the top freshman in the state and has the chance to be a special talent when it’s all said and done. You always wonder how a freshman will react to playing in the state tournament, Alexander hasn’t missed a step.


Ranking: #1

Record: (28-0)

Championships: 1 (2017)

Road To Championship Saturday
Quarterfinals: Beat Ada 50-45
Semifinals: Beat Webster 69-44

Player To Watch: Jett Sternberger – Guard
Kingfisher’s Jett Sternberger became a name to watch last year at the state tournament. At the time, the sophomore absolutely lit up Kingfisher’s opponents, on his way to being named the tournament’s MVP. He averaged nearly 20 points per game in their state tourney run and filled it up from 3-point range. Nothing has changed for the junior. He’s still one of the best shooters in the state and he’s only gotten better. The 1-2 punch of Sternberger and Trey Green is one that has been tough to stop for over a year now.
