You Should Have Seen
Kristen Boone, Gwynn Park
Gwynn Park Coach Marvin Vann said Boone's best attribute is "her ability to take over the game by herself."
The 5-foot-6 junior point guard proved Vann's point in a 60-27 victory over DuVal in a Prince George's 3A/2A/1A League game on Friday, finishing with 10 points, 8 steals and 7 assists. Moreover, Boone constantly disrupted the Tigers' offense by either stealing the ball or deflecting passes, and the Tigers ended the game with just 10 field goals -- four in the second half.
Boone transferred to Gwynn Park after helping lead Elizabeth Seton to the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference championship game last season, and has made a smooth transition into the starting lineup at Gwynn Park (9-1, 6-0 entering the week). She has averaged 10.1 points, 7 assists and 6 steals per game.
"The amount of intensity she brings to our team is tremendous," Vann said.
You Should See
Daniel Conway, Largo
Entering the season as Largo's lone returning starter, big things were expected of Conway. The 6-5, 189-pound senior forward has responded by averaging 16 points and a team-best seven rebounds per game as Largo entered the week on a two-game winning streak.
Conway recorded a game-high 23 points and 11 rebounds in Largo's 85-66 victory over High Point on Jan. 7, and had 16 points and seven rebounds in the Lions' 64-62 victory over Eleanor Roosevelt in a Prince George's 4A League game on Friday. It was Largo's third consecutive win over the Raiders.
Conway has led the Lions (6-5, 4-3) in scoring five times this season, highlighted by a season-best 27-point performance in Largo's victory over Crossland on Dec. 17.
"It's his team," Largo Coach Lewis Howard said of Conway. "He's a senior, and he's worked hard for his success. I'm really happy with the way he's played and the leadership he's brought to our team."
