Dezi Jones • Junior • Hannibal basketball
Jones erupted for 47 points in a home victory against Marshall to break single-game school record that stood for 47 years. The junior standout scored his final 16 points in the fourth quarter and made 15 of his 20 attempts from the field on the night to help the Pirates win a 91-77 shootout. The guard remains the top scoring threat for coach Marty Hull’s 8-8 squad.
Delanie Okenfuss • Senior • Monroe City basketball
Okenfuss scored 13 points last Saturday to help the Lady Panthers to a 54-44 win over Palmyra in the Lenzini Tournament championship — Monroe City's third tourney title this season. The senior guard followed that performance with 17 points during a home loss to Highland on Tuesday. The 5-foot-2 senior guard is “the heart and soul” of the squad, according to coach Cody Leonard.
