After a slow start, Montonati had a good drive with a controlled stop in the lane for two points. Which was quickly followed up with a jab step, one dribble stepback to gain space and drill a three pointer over the defender’s out stretched arms. It was the start of a strong scoring stretch that would carry over into the second frame. He drilled a three in front of the Edmond Memorial student section, then used his outstanding body control and a pumpfake to draw a foul on a drive. The sophomore is already a master at drawing fouls, with various moves to get opponents off their feet and unbalanced. He’s a very heady scorer for his young age.
Unsurprisingly, Montonati’s clutch gene kicked it in a with a tough and persistent 8 footer that put Owasso up by 4 with about a minute left.
