Week 5 MVP
The Sabresí 5-foot-9 senior scored 16 points in a 43-37 win over Bartlett, snapping a 12-game losing streak against the Sabresí rival, then scored 17, including her 1,000th career point, in a 53-50 Upstate Eight River win over Batavia. The Chicago State recruit became the sixth Streamwood girls basketball player to scored at least 1,000 points.
This versatile junior guard scored half of her teamís points in a key 42-33 Suburban Christian Conference Gold Division victory over Immaculate Conception. In addition to those 21 points and 4 steals, Andersen led her team with 14 points in a loss to Newark.
The 6-foot guard-forward, who battled inside for rebounds (14) and often played point guard, made the first 11 of her 12 free throws and scored a game-high 15 points as Hoffman led nearly all the way in a 40-30 triumph over Barrington, which had previously been undefeated in the Mid-Suburban West.
The Division I prospect continues to play like one. The junior forward fell just shy of her second double-double in a row, as she had 18 points (four 3-pointers) and 8 rebounds in a 61-33 win over Round Lake. She was coming off a performance in which she posted 13 points, 12 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 blocks and 2 steals, as the Cougars beat Lakes 56-41.
The aptly named senior point guard was the catalyst for two wins at the Naperville North/Benet Holiday Tournament. Swift scored 21 points in a 57-46 win over Glenbard West, then tallied 22 points as the Huskies beat Providence 53-41 for fifth place.
