Bijan Cortes and Matthew Stone had one more basketball game as teammates. And, just like nearly every other, they won. The Large West erased a seven-point deficit entering the fourth quarter Thursday night to defeat the Large East 108-102 in the Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State boys basketball contest held at Jenks High School. Cortes, left, and Stone, right, combined for 10 points and five rebounds in the final quarter, which included a 10-0 run for the West (the large school game featured Classes 4A, 5A and 6A). Longtime Tulsa World high school sports reporter Barry Lewis tweeted after the game: “Fun game – Large West rallies for 108-102 win –reminded again in 4Q why Kingfisher’s Bijan Cortes and Matthew Stone were 107-4 in their careers...” Cortes, along with Norman North’s Jaylan White, led his team with 16 points. Stone ended his night with 12 points. The two have since returned to their college destinations, Cortes at the University of Oklahoma and Stone at the University of North Texas. They are pictured with their KHS head coach, Jared Reese. [Photo provided by Scott Moore]
