Taverres Jefferson (Ensworth) could feel himself igniting and once it became apparent there was no stopping him. The 5'9 senior guard bombed 31 points and helped lead his Tigers past Father Ryan 61-44 giving them the coveted gold ball and rights to call themselves the state champions of DII Class AA.
For his effort Jefferson garnered MVP honors and was joined on the coveted all-tournament squad by teammates Jacob Carter (Ensworth), Richard Bowers (Ensworth), Brendan Connolly (Father Ryan), Leslie McDonald (Briarcrest Christian) and Jonathan Milewski (ECS).
Connolly did all he could to lift his Irish scoring 18 points and grabbing 16 boards.
