Who is the Week 4 Girls Basketball Player of the Week?
(Players listed alphabetically)
Destiny Adams, Manchester
The most dominant player in the shore had another huge week as the Hawks posted a pair of victories. Adams had 30 points, 12 rebounds and 5 blocks in an 11-point victory over Life Center and followed that up with 35 points and 28 rebounds as Manchester topped Donovan Catholic in a battle for Ocean County supremacy.
Abby Antognoli, St. Rose
The senior guard has had a tremendous season and continued that in a pair of wins last week. She had 21 points on 10-17 shooting and 4 assists against Ranney and then came back a couple of days later against Holmdel with 24 points on 9-17 shooting and another 4 assists against the Hornets.
Isabella Bednarz, Keyport
The Red Raiders won their first two games of the season by sweeping a pair of close decisions from Asbury Park and the sophomore was a big reason why. In the two victories Bednarz combined for 27 points, 28 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 blocks and 5 steals. She also made big plays down the stretch to help secure the wins for Keyport.
Dara Grinberg, Manalapan
The sophomore center continues to be a bright spot for the Braves and had a strong three-game week. She had 7 points, 4 rebounds and 2 blocks in a loss to Marlboro and the next day collected 11 points, 16 rebounds and 2 blocks against Middletown South. Grinberg saved her best against Freehold Boro with 15 points, 11 rebounds, 3 blocks and 4 steals as Manalapan picked up their second win of the season.
Emma Moriarty, Red Bank Regional
She scored 6 of the Bucs 21 total points in a loss to RBC but the senior turned in a solid performance in a win over Middletown South with 19 points (3 3-pointers) and 5 rebounds as Red Bank bounced back with a good win.
Lila Shaver, Point Boro
The senior guard was a huge factor during a 4-0 week for the Panthers. She scored 26, 13, 20 and 21 points in wins over Brick, Barnegat (twice) and Point Beach. Shaver hit 11 three-pointers in those four games and added 17 rebounds and 12 steals.
