  1. PAYTON JONES – ALVA- The Lady Bugs from Alva seem to have an endless pipeline of physical and explosive shooters; Jones is no different. An excellent penetrator and slasher, she scores with impunity from just about anywhere, never hurts to have another Top 10 player in Lexie Reihm just a pass away.

 

  1. JENNA BAY – SHATTUCK- Extremely quick handed shooter and defensive player. Bay is best attacking the rim and scoring in transition using her strength and athleticism to finish, she’s a formidable perimeter matchup which buys her space to go to the hole.

 

  1. ADDY HOFFMAN- WEATHERFORD- One of the most versatile guards on both ends of the floor in the North West. Hoffman is not only outstanding as a catch and shoot player, but she is also deadly in transition cutting up defenses and finishing even with contact. Her and Ashlyn Sage have electric chemistry.

 

  1. ASHLYN SAGE WEATHERFORD- A powerful and lean forward that has a terrific feel for the basket, an exceptional mid-range shot and is great off the dribble. Sage and Addy Hoffman are one of the best duo’s in 4A, the State’s most competitive class.

 

  1. LEXIE REIHM- ALVA- Extremely athletic, cuts baseline defenders as well as anyone in the area. Reihm has great floor vision, unselfish player and passer, and solid defender. She and Payton Jones are one of the best 1-2 punches in North West Oklahoma Girls Basketball.

 

  1. KAYLA HIGHFILL- BURLINGTON Excellent ball handler, unmatched smoothness for her frame, and a nonstop engine. Highfill will score from the post and the 3-point perimeter, her biggest threat to a defense is being uncontested in transition where she drives by defenders on their heels.

She has terrific scoring ability and when she heats up it seems to go in the hole from anywhere, she shoots it. Hazelbaker is an excellent floor leader.

 

  1. ADYSEN WILSON- LOMEGA- Arguably the best shooter in traffic in the North West, she splits defenders with her long frame and an outstanding finisher. Adysen is a great shooter from perimeter and handles the ball well for her position not to mention a good rebounder from the high post

 

  1. BRYA NYBERG- SEILING- Outstanding range from the 3 Point perimeter, seemingly bewitches defenses and drifts from coverage and spots up on the wing for open shot after shot. Nyberg has an iron will in close contests, she’s been in the big games her most of her career.

 

  1. JENNIFER BEEBE – KINGFISHER- Conference player of the year at Garber her sophomore and junior year before transferring to Kingfisher for her senior season.

  1. JOHANNA QUINTERO- GUYMON- Ultra athletic guard that moves easily through traffic and passes with purpose to find her teammates. Quintero has a proven jumper from behind the arc, and she is an outstanding defender against big school scorers.

  1. TETONA BLACKOWL- CALUMET- Jet-quick floor-leader with an explosive attack in Calumet’s uptempo game. Tetona can be physical off the dribble and seems to always be under control when driving and distributing. A definite threat from the outside if left unguarded.

 

  1. ALLIE PARKHURST- CHEYENE- REYDON- A tough inside scorer that is difficult to contain when she has the ball on the top of the key. She seems to find the smallest of lanes to cut and lay in almost impossible baskets. Parkhurst handles the basketball well and is a threat to shoot from the perimeter.

 

  1. TAYBOR GILCHRIST- FAIRVIEW- Athletic defender with deceiving length that wields a scoring punch from just about anywhere from beyond the 3-point line. Gilchrist drifts and loses her defensive coverage and is a solid finisher of good passing from her teammates.

 

  1. CATELYN BREWSTER- LEEDY- Explosive floor-leader that unselfishly prioritizes her team scoring on every possession. Her driving ability breaks defenses and she distributes the ball well.

  1. TEGAN JONES- SHATTUCK- An evasive sharpshooter that moves well in offensive transition. Jones seems to make that extra pass in the offense that breaks the defense down and finds an open Jenna Bay for an easy basket. Tegan does a great job of anticipating poor defensive help for her stop and pop shot from behind the 3 Point line.

 

  1. PAYTON ROWLEY- WOODWARD- Experienced and athletic on the wing. Riley delivers offense for herself and her teammates off the dribble. She has a good spot up and shoot motion. Deceptively agile for her frame, Payton has length on the backcourt that gives many guards problems finding the open player.
