Daily Herald report

Streamwood senior Jenejha Williams has earned the Daily Herald's MVP honor for her recent high school girls basketball performances.

Jenejha Williams, Streamwood: Streamwood coach George Rosner says this 6-foot-3 senior is a better person off the court than she is a player on it -- and she's one of the best players Streamwood has ever had. Became just the seventh Sabre with 1,000 career points when she scored 23 against Batavia on Friday. She also had 21 points, 16 rebounds and 5 blocked shots in a victory over Bartlett.

Kaylee Bambule, Montini: The senior guard scored 15 points, making 5 of 7 3-point attempts, in the unbeaten Broncos' victory against Rock Island, ranked third in Class 4A. The Ohio University recruit also had 3 rebounds, 2 assists and a block. She also scored 14 points against Trinity on 4-of-8 shooting from behind the arc.

Mallory Gerber, Schaumburg: Gerber helped lead the Saxons to wins on consecutive days, scoring a career-high 30 points, including six 3-pointers, in a 78-39 win over Hoffman Estates and coming back the next day with 23 points and 9 rebounds in a 58-34 win over South Elgin.

Ashley Reiser, Antioch: Missing the Sequoits' season opener after being in a car accident hasn't slowed the four-year varsity point guard. Reiser (16.5 ppg) had 28 points, including three 3-pointers, and 10 assists in a 60-58 loss to Grayslake Central. She followed up with 17 points (three 3s) on 7-of-9 shooting in a 56-30 win over Round Lake.
