Here are The Oklahoman's high school athletes of the week for Feb. 8-14:

Boys basketball

Israel Hart, Sr., Midwest City: The guard had a terrific performance as Class 6A No. 9 Midwest City knocked off No. 7 Choctaw 76-72 on Friday. Hart scored 25 points to go along with five rebounds and four assists. He has averaged nearly 25 points per game in the calendar year, helping the Bombers to a 10-3 mark in 2021. Hart has become one of the most impactful guards in the city. He has excellent floor vision and can score, but coach Corky McMullen said Hart's demeanor rarely changes and he has a unique ability to get to the next play, regardless of the circumstances.

Girls basketball

Brianna Wietelman, Sr., Oklahoma Christian Academy: It was a short week for a lot of teams across the state due to the inclement weather canceling games, but Brianna Wietelman didn’t waste her one opportunity to get on the court on Friday. The senior tallied 16 points, 11 rebounds and seven blocks in Oklahoma Christian Academy’s 53-46 win over Christian Heritage Academy. Wietelman’s seven-block game wasn’t a fluke occurrence. She’s proven to be dominant on both sides of the ball all season and it has been vital for OCA’s success. Wietelman is averaging 21 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks as OCA (13-5) looks to make some noise in the postseason.
