Shala Robinson – Moore High School 

From the first time she stepped on the court, Moore’s Shala Robinson was a star. As a senior Robinson started the year with a VYPE Top 100 nomination and a preseason All-VYPE selectee. Screen Shot 2017-04-30 at 2.31.03 PM

Robinson did not disappoint. She averaged 18.2 points per game, 12.1 rebounds and 3.1 steals. She also added 2.1 blocks and 1.5 assists to her totals.

Over her career at Moore, Robinson has scored 1,091 points and grabbed 712 rebounds.

Moore head coach Brent Hodges said Robinson was a leader on the court and someone younger players could look up to.

“Shala has been a great player for us at Moore. Shala should be accredited with a great amount of the success we have had over the last two seasons. She is a player that is committed to getting better everyday and working hard. She is a great young lady with many great qualities that we want in all of our players. We wish her success at the next level,” said coach Hodges.

Editor’s Choice Girls Basketball Player of the Year
I’ll take the same approach with the Girls Player of the Year as I did with the boys. Ana Llanusa won the Shelter Insurance Miss Basketball Oklahoma award so I’ll stay away from Llanusa. With that said, Classen SAS product Taylor Roberts was second in the voting and my choice for Player of the Year. Screen Shot 2017-04-30 at 2.31.45 PM

Roberts had a record setting season, literally. Roberts became the first African-American female and the second girl to hit the 3,000-point mark over her career. During a regular season game against Star Spencer, Roberts dropped 32 points finishing the game with 3,008 points and her permanent place in history.

Led by Roberts the Classen SAS team finished the season with a 28-3 record and was ranked as high as No.3 in Class 4A.

Roberts finished her high school career with 3,429 points, averaging 30.5 points per game this season with 4.7 rebounds and 3.6 steals per contest. Roberts passed Howe’s Stephanie McGhee who held the all-time record with 3,376 points.
