First team

KIERRA FLETCHER

WARREN COUSINO

5-9, JR. PG (CAPTAIN)

Came up big for Cousino throughout the state tournament, averaging 27 points a game en route to guiding the Patriots to the Class A state championship. She scored 27, grabbed eight boards and dished out five assists in Cousino’s 67-65 title game victory over Detroit King. She averaged 24 points and 9.6 rebounds a game as well as 5.6 assists and 4.2 steals a contest.

Coach Mike Lee: “She’s a playmaker. She can score at will, but she’s also the first one to say that she will take an assist over a bucket. But when she knows that the game’s on the line, she wants the ball in her hands, and that’s what winners and competitors do. She’s a very unselfish player as well as a great student and a great kid.”

GROSSE POINTE WOODS UNIVERSITY LIGGETT

5-7, JR. PG

Led Liggett to a 20-5 campaign and to an appearance in the Class C state quarterfinals. She averaged 22.3 points per game on 52% shooting from the field and 46% shooting from three-point range to go along with 85% free-throw shooting. She also amassed 6.7 rebounds a contest and put in solid work defensively, recording 139 steals (5.3 per contest).

Coach Omar Ahart: “At the beginning of the season, I told Nia and everyone that every day was a tryout. I told her to put her best foot forward every game. She had to learn more because within a year, she’s going to be running someone’s Division I program. And she ended up carrying the team, which consisted of eight players.”

WARREN REGINA

5-6, SR. G

The “real Diehl,” as her classmates call her, brought leadership every time she stepped on the floor. She averaged 17 points and six boards a game to go along with 4.3 assists. Bright on and off the court, she is No. 1 in her class with a 4.3 GPA.

Coach Diane Laffey: “She’s a floor leader. The whole team looks to her for leadership.”

NIJA COLLIER

ROSEVILLE

5-11, JR. F

Nija Collier Roseville

Nija Collier Roseville

Won MAC Gold Most Valuable Player with the most points per conference game (20.5) and rebounds per conference game (17.8). Scored 46 points against Center Line on Jan. 22, giving her the Roseville and Macomb County girls record for points in a game, and grabbed 30 rebounds against Marysville on Jan. 26, setting school and county record for rebounds in a game. For the season overall, she averaged 18.3 points and 16.6 rebounds to go along with four assists, 3.5 steals and 1.5 blocks.

Coach Andy Houghton: “She’s always been a great athlete, but her rebounding took over this year. She plays all year round, knows the game and loves it. That mixed with her athleticism makes her a threat and allows her to take command of the game and to impact it greatly.”

KATIE SNOW

GROSSE POINTE NORTH

5-8, JR. SG

Helped North accumulate a 17-6 record and reach the district finals of the state tournament. On the season, she amassed 13 points and four rebounds a game to go along with three steals and 2.5 assists per contest.

Coach Gary Bennett: “The biggest thing about Katie is her competitive toughness. She has a tremendously high energy level and just keeps going and going. No single player brings more competitive toughness.”
