  • Some schools may start running out of room in the trophy cases.
    In one of the strongest years in recent memory for Southern Oklahoma girls basketball, the accolades continued to pour in Thursday, as three area players were honored as Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State players.
    Sulphur’s Ashley Hughes, Davis’ Kendal Rogers and Conner Harmon of Turner were all selected to the Small West team, a roster of just 10 elite seniors.
    Hughes was the leader and main scorer for the Class 3A state champion Bulldogs this season, averaging 17.2 points (while shooting 61 percent from the field), 5.2 rebounds, 3.3 steals and 3.7 assists per game in a 30-0 campaign.
    Rogers was an equally dominant force for Murray County rival Davis, leading the Wolves to an area tournament appearance while averaging 20.1 ppg, 11.6 rpg and 6.6 blocks per contest.
    Both were also named to the Oklahoma Girls Basketball Coaches Association All-State team.
    Harmon, the senior leader of a Turner team that made it to the Class A semifinals, was a tour-de-force for the Falcons, scoring 19.3 ppg, including an impressive 41 percent on 3-point shots and an 82-percent mark on free throws. Harmon also chipped in 6.3 boards and 2.7 steals per contest.
    The three will take part in the All-State game at Oral Roberts University on July 31, with game time set for 7 p.m.
    Richardson, Foster named to All-Region
    The OCA also released All-Region honors, with Sulphur’s Tierani Richardson and Turner’s Taylor Foster making the Small West Region 5 list along with Rogers, Harmon and Hughes.
    Richardson was the sharpshooter for the Bulldogs, averaging 15.4 points per contest thanks in large part to her 39 percent clip from beyond the arc. Richardson was also a prolific defensive player, recording 77 steals despite her small stature.
    Foster was equally impressive from distance for Turner, knocking down 37 percent of her 3-point attempts while averaging 10.9 points per game to go along with 1.3 steals per contest.
