The Oklahoman’s championship picks

Cameron Jourdan: Varnum. The Whippets have dominated Class B competition all season, and don’t expect that to change with their senior-heavy lineup.

James D. Jackson: Varnum. The top-ranked Whippets have been tested and have come out strong with a 21-3 record. With three players averaging double-figures in scoring, they’re bound for a title.
