Preston Bennett • Sophomore • Hannibal basketball
Bennett knocked down 10 3-pointers over the course of three games as Hannibal won the consolation title at the Fort Zumwalt North Tournament. The sophomore finished with nine points against the host school Saturday after scoring in double figures the first two games of the tourney. The point guard has become a fixture in coach Marty Hull's lineup.
Jada Summers • Junior • Monroe City basketball
Summers delivered the game-winning 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds remaining in a 53-52 win at South Shelby on Tuesday. The 5-foot-5 forward recorded 30 points and 10 rebounds in the victory. The junior also posted a double-double against Highland last Tuesday night. She's the centerpiece of coach Cody Leonard's state-ranked 18-2 Lady Panthers.
