The Memorial boys' basketball team made history after taking the 5A state championship for the third straight year! The team has 9 state championships, but this was their first 3-peat.
Nearly 4,000 fans packed the Mabee Center to see the Chargers defeat Del City 63-52.
Senior Kalib Boone had a great night with 21 points, 17 rebounds, and five blocked shots. His twin brother, Keylan, also had a great game with 20 points, 6 rebounds, and five blocks.
The brothers were overrun with emotion after having won their 3rd championship in 4 years.
"My emotions are running wild right now. It's a great, great feeling," Keylan said.
Kalib said, "This means a lot. This was our plan all along. We had steps and we completed every step."
The seniors have signed with Oklahoma State University and will play basketball for the Cowboys.
Everyone on the team showed up for the championship as the Chargers shot an amazing 63 percent from the field. Junior guard Will Hill came up with a steal and scored a very clutch basket late in the game. Kavon Key then hit a 3-pointer that helped the Chargers pull away. Hill finished with seven points and three assists.
Congratulations to the boys' basketball team and their historic championship win!
