Last weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Mother McAuley Invite, a four-team showcase consisting of Providence Catholic, St. Ignatius, Loyola Academy, the host team. Each game had several stand-out players, and I am going to award Five Stars to my top five players from each of the games. Here are my Five Stars from Providence Catholic vs. St. Ignatius:


1 Star: Nicolette McDonald. The St. Ignatius Senior Forward was dominant down in the post and nearly unstoppable when she received the entry pass. McDonald used her strength to get open on the block and good footwork to get to the rim. She finished with 13 points.


2 Stars: Lauren Knight. The 5’8’’ Sophomore Guard from Providence showcased abilities to score at every level and possesses a smooth jump shot. Knight ran the floor well in transition and was able to calmly bring up the ball against the St. Ignatius Full Court Press.


3 Stars: Lauren McDonald. Also a 5’8’’ Sophomore Guard, McDonald shows off something new every time I see her play. I already knew she could score inside and knock down shots from deep, but her defense is what stood out this time around.
