Top perfromances?

  • Clare Breden the Sophomore guard from Jerseyville is hard to stop. She is very quick with the ball and has deep range. She had 19 points both games today and is the key for Jerseyville offensively.
  • Abby Manns a Junior wing from Jerseyville is a defensive stopper. She slowed down Adrenna Snipes in the big Jerseyville win. She can guard just about any position on the floor with her long arms and tough approach to the game.
  • Laila McNeal a Senior wing from Alton has abnormal athletic ability. She is very off the first step, can really jump and you do not want
