Kate Bradley and Alyssa Nielsen receive All-State Honorable Mention!
While the 2019-20 girls basketball season was cut short, the Tulsa World still honors the top teams with “The Super 12” and the top 100 players with “All-State.”
All State player of the year will be revealed and honored after the All World players of the year are announced in late June.
All high school coaches were invited to nominate their deserving players. A notable difference between the Tulsa World’s selections and those made by the state’s coaches is that players from all grade levels are eligible for All World honors, while the coaches honor only seniors.
Tulsa World’s Barry Lewis chose the boys team and Mike Brown made the girls selections. Besides nominating their own players, coaches also were asked for their choices of the top players from other teams, and that was given a lot of weight.
Mike Brown said, “This is my eighth year of covering girls basketball on a full-time basis, and I can honestly say the All-State team is the most powerful I’ve had the privilege to select. As coaches like to say, ‘You could take this group to war.’”
