The MVP in this Tournament was Eternati Willock. Her performances were dominant on both ends of the floor. She led the Panthers in scoring each game, averaging 19.7ppg throughout the tournament. She did so by making full use of her post up game and shooting the ball extremely well. In the defensive end, especially in the Championship Final vs Campion, she was extremely competitive. She made sure that every shot was contested and appeared to be sending a message with every blocked shot.

Also receiving recognition for their play throughout the tournament were the following All-Stars:
Danielle Garven
Garven has been streaking lately, allowing Pope to really positive results. Her increasing confidence is allowing her to flow through the course of games and play with much purpose. Although I have seen her shoot the ball better, but that in no way means that didn’t score the ball well from outside throughout the three days. Her length and ability to stretch the floor played a big role in freeing up some of the clutter in the paint, while defenses had to respect her ability to shoot or put the ball on the floor and drive.

janika-griffith-wallaceJanika Griffith-Wallace
Griffith-Wallace truly deserved the nod as a Tournament All-Star as this sophomore proved in this tournament that she would be a head turner for years to come. She is a very good attacking ball handler whose style complemented Colley’s well. While better results in finishing around the basket would have aided her Bears, she demonstrated on more than several occasions why she has an extremely high ceiling and should be a top prospect to be on the look out for over the next couple of years.

Shay Colley
Colley was the focal point for the Bears as the vast majority of their offence flowed through her and as her fortunes went, so did her team’s. Her inability to be taken off the ball when attacking the basket made it difficult for her to be defended, along with how she messed up defenders’ timing with her hops and stutter steps while dribbling. Throw in the occasional 3-pointer and her unselfish nature with the ball and altogether you have the makings of one of the gems of the 2014 Class at this tournament.

Iziegbe Enabulele
Menace is a word that comes to my mind when thinking about Enabulele dominance in the paint. Enabulele’s physical performance in the paint on defense made life difficult for opposing bigs that dared enter into her space. She gave no mercy by making them all have to contend with her reach, rebounding instincts and strength. Don’t let me forget to point out that she also averaged over 19ppg as her reward from going all out on both ends including a 27Point statement game in the tournament’s opening round.

Of course, there more than several other players that stood out in this tournament. Let’s take a look at just a few of them:
