Batavia sophomore forward Hannah Frazier has earned Daily Herald MVP honors for her recent basketball performances.
Hannah Frazier, Batavia: The 6-foot-2 sophomore forward started her week with 25 points and 16 rebounds against undefeated Joliet Catholic and its 3 Division I players at the McDonald's Shootout. Batavia also won a pair of conference games to stay unbeaten in the UEC River with Frazier finishing with 17 points in the first win and 16 points and 11 rebounds in the second.
Brooke Gunderson, Barrington: Gunderson excelled in all phases of the game to help Barrington notch a 49-42 win in the Mid-Suburban West over visiting Palatine. The senior guard scored 12 points with 5 assists, 4 rebounds and 3 steals and always seemed to come up with a big play when Palatine got close on the scoreboard. Gunderson also led the Fillies with 14 points the next day in a loss at Vernon Hills.
Rainey Kuykendall, Montini: In a 56-40 victory against Bolingbrook at the McDonald's Shootout, Kuykendall scored 12 points, blocked 9 shots and grabbed 7 rebounds.

Savanah Uveges, South Elgin: The Storm's 5-foot-9 senior started her week with 9 points and 6 rebounds in a 52-29 win over Metea Valley. She then came back with one of the best games of her career, scoring 19 points and adding 7 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals as South Elgin defeated Bartlett 47-43. The win kept the Storm in contention for the Upstate Eight Valley title.
Lauren Webb, Vernon Hills: The Bowling Green-bound senior forward has missed most of this season with a foot injury. Lately, she's been stepping up, pain-free. She scored 22 points, going 16 of 16 from the foul line, in a 76-73, triple-overtime victory over North Chicago. She then had 16 points in another quality win, 59-49 over Barrington.
