2015 All-Brooklyn Team: Girls High School Basketball All-Stars
Brooklyn’s girls have made the borough proud. Brianna Fraser represents Brooklyn as an All-American, and South Shore brought the city title back home for the first time since 1991. Fraser might be going off to Maryland next year, but with so much talent not graduating quite yet, Kings County could be in a position to become a girls basketball powerhouse.
Here are the high school basketball All-Brooklyn girls teams, as chosen by the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.
All-Brooklyn MVP: Brianna Fraser, South Shore, forward, senior
Brianna Fraser led the Brooklyn AA division with 16.7 points per game and was third with 10.3 rebounds per game. The All-American also scored 22 of South Shore’s 42 points when the team won the school’s first-ever city championship.
All-Brooklyn Coach of the Year: Anwar Gladden, South Shore
Gladden has consistently had one of the best teams in the entire city for years, but only now can he say that he’s the best. Gladden is the first coach from Brooklyn to win the PSAL AA championship since Robeson won in 1991.
All-Brooklyn Rookie of the Year: Kania Pollock, Boys and Girls, guard, freshman
Not many freshmen had as good a year as Pollock did. She averaged 13.6 points per game and led the PSAL with 13.1 rebounds and 7.6 assists per game in 15 regular season games. It’s been a long time since Boys and Girls had a winning record, but with players like Pollock to build around, it looks like a winner in the making.
All-Brooklyn First Team
Milica Reid, Bishop Loughlin, guard, sophomore
Reid led a talented Loughlin squad with 13.8 points and 4.8 assists per game in 25 games. Also strong defensively, Reid was second on the team with 2.4 steals per game.
Jen Kaye, Bishop Kearney, forward, senior
Kaye was a powerful senior with the ability to take control of a game offensively as well as wreak havoc for teams in the paint.
Niya Johnson, Nazareth, guard, junior
Johnson is one of the best shooters in Brooklyn and averaged 22.1 points and 10.2 rebounds per game for the Lady Kingsmen this year.
Shanique Edwards, Grand Street, forward, junior
Edwards transferred to Grand Street prior to this season and changed everything. She averaged 15.1 points and 11.8 rebounds per game as she helped get her team to Madison Square Garden.
Danielle Patterson, Medgar Evers Prep, guard/forward, sophomore
Medgar Evers is one of the most improved teams in the city in recent years, and with players like Patterson, who averaged 16.7 points and 7.0 rebounds per game, it’s only going to keep improving.
All-Brooklyn Second Team
Brianna Stoddart, Canarsie, guard, senior
Alexandra Jacques, St. Edmund Prep, forward, senior
Jai Moore, Midwood, guard, junior
Aiyana Dugue, ENY Family Academy, forward, senior
Amanda Cruz, South Shore, guard, senior
