Other seniors have had flashier scoring numbers this season. There’s a few casual fans that might be shocked by Dow’s production or how he does it. But here’s nothing deceptive about Dow’s athleticism. He covers ground in large chunks from racing down the court to make a defensive play in transition to acrobatically finishing around the rim. He has been a terror for the last two seasons, making college level plays on both ends of the court. And when Broken Arrow has needed a player to produce in the biggest moments, it’s been Dow.
Thursday evening was no different. He set the tone with a pair of deep threes. But after that his usually reliable three point shot didn’t fall quite as sweetly as it usually does. That didn’t matter as he started knifing through Norman’s defense, avoiding defenders on the way there and at the rim. The future OSU Cowboy punctuated the contested with a pair of slams in the fourth. Sealing Broken Arrow’s first return to the Class 6A Semifinals since 2018. Dow finished with 22 points, on 9-14 shooting from the field.
