JENKS -- Collinsville is going to the boys state basketball tournament for the first time in 43 years.

Peyton Dees scored 22 points and Ethan Cole added 15 to help lead the 10th-ranked Cardinals past No. 13 Rogers 64-46 in a Class 5A area consolation final Saturday night at Frank Herald Fieldhouse.

Collinsville (17-9) last reached the state tournament in 1976. The state tournament starts Thursday in the Tulsa area. Pairings, times and sites for the state tournament will be announced Sunday.

"It feels amazing to finally accomplish it," Dees said.

Avery Hill scored 14 for Rogers (13-13), which was looking for its first state berth since 1996.

Collinsville bounced back from a 69-55 loss to Oklahoma City Northwest in the area title game Friday.

"It's an amazing feeling," Collinsville coach Todd Anderson said. "I'm proud of our kids and the toughness they showed. Any time you play that area final and get beat, coming back that next day it's hard to get that focus back.

"Peyton played outstanding, since the Christmas break he has really been good."

Dees had five 3s as he responded after being shut out by Northwest on Friday.

"That says a lot about a kid and his determination to get to the state tournament," Anderson said.

Collinsville jumped to an 11-2 lead, but Rogers opened the second quarter with a 10-0 run to move ahead 16-13.

But after a Cardinals timeout, Dees sank a 3 and followed with a go-ahead basket that ignited a 10-0 run as Collinsville took a 23-16 lead into intermission after a Cole trey.

"We knew we just had to regroup and get back to what we were doing," Cole said.

The Cardinals led 45-33 at the end of the third quarter. Dees' final 3 made it 56-43 with 2:58 left and his layup ended the scoring and the celebration started 45 seconds later as time expired.

Cole was even a bit surprised by the Cardinals' success this season.

"At the beginning of the year if you told me we were going to make the state championship I would've said, `no way,' " off the season we had last year," Cole said  -- the Cardinals went 9-13 and were eliminated in a regional opener in 2018. "It's a great feeling. We knew it was win or go home tonight so we put it all on the line."
