Treston Tully named Class 2A Player of the Year

Latta —    Treston Tully is the consummate all-around basketball player.

   That versatility, along with being a critical part of Latta High School’s run to a second straight Class 2A state boys basketball championship last month, enabled him to be named Class 2A Player of the Year by the Oklahoma Basketball Coaches Association, it was recently announced.

   The junior sported a 10.7 scoring average, shot 54 percent from the floor and connected on 84 percent of his free throws, which topped Class 2A.

   That wasn’t all. Tully also led the Panthers in defensive rebounding with a 5.0 average and averaged 3.0 assists.

   “He did a lot of things. He led us in steals and deflections too,” said Latta head coach Donnie Husband. “The bottom line is when you win (a state championship), you get noticed. He’s really a good all-around basketball player and a good defensive player. He really rebounds well for a guard, and he’s getting more consistent as he’s come along.”

   Tully's play at state was big in Latta’s run to the state title and a 27-4 finish.

   “He’s such a versatile player. He can play forward, point guard or two guard,” Husband said. “He did a lot of things for us. He’s a great kid and hard worker. He continually wants to be a great basketball player.”
