Terrell Stoglin ended his high school career on top Saturday.
The Maryland point guard commitment helped Tucson (Ariz.) Santa Rita to an 86-84 win over top-ranked Amphitheater for the Arizona 4A-II boys basketball title.
"We're state champions," Santa Rita star guard Terrell Stoglin said. "We're state champions. We're state champions. It's a dream, boys. It's a dream."
Stoglin reached double figures despite going up against a particularly stingy Amphi defense.
