The results are in from the Kansas 6A state title game and you were in for a treat if you was in attendance. A rematch from last year you can expect it was going to be a heated battle. Both teams playing intense with constant back and forth runs, crowd was into it and as expected it went down to wire. Check out what players left their hand print on the game.
Grant Stubberfield (Blue Valley Northwest, #0, 6’1″)- The dynamic dual sport athlete put on nothing less than a show Saturday in the championship game. Grant played with great pace and tempo constantly pushing it out in transition on miss or makes. Rather it was him dribbling it up or him pitching it ahead to his teammates for the lay up, we knew 1 thing he didn’t want to play slow which worked in their favor.
(Blue Valley Northwest, #12, 6’6″)- A familiar name to everyone, Braun left his fingerprints all over the game. From going after lose balls that was going out of bounds, crashing the glass on both ends or being physical getting himself to the charity stripe, its safe to say he left it all out there.
(Blue Valley Northwest, #23, 6’8″)- Joey known for his size and interior presence made sure he made it known to those who didn’t know him. Being the biggest kid on the floor at 6’8″ and his opponent 6’7″ he made sure to win the matchup and do his part for this huskies team. From paint protection making everything tough that goes up, imposing his will with rebounds or simply cleaning up offensive misses with his rebounds and put backs, he was a huge factor.
(Blue Valley Northwest, #5, 6’4″)- Fritz, probably showed himself to be the next go to scorer next to grant out there, played at the 2 spot, he did it on both ends guarding whoever he needed to per request on the adjustments from his coach, or being a high flyer trying to dunk it every chance he get, he was a problem to be wrecking with. Multiple times he tried dunking it on people in transition, when you seen someone leak out running to get the pitch ahead it was Jake, handling all of the pressure thrown at him he was impressive. He was one of the big reasons the huskies won it all this year.
(Wichita Heights, #23, 6’4″)- TJ, after visiting Iowa and Mizzou, you knew he had to come back and show you why he is a D1 prospect. After winning it last year he wanted that feeling again but came up short. The 6’4″ guard helped jumpstart a falcons run by getting to the rim and converting and ones which chipped into that 15 point deficit and eventually got it down to single digits. When he’s driving left its not much you can do to keep him in front.
