MOST IMPROVED PLAYER AWARD AND TEAM

Most Improved Player

To win the MOST IMPROVED PLAYER AWARD a few things have to happen. The player must be a gym rat. There is no way for a player to improve without getting in the gym. Next the player must add something to their game. Then of course the player must bring all this to the court. It was not easy choosing this year’s winner. So many players have stepped up this year. But no player stepped up like  THE 2015-16 MOST IMPROVED PLAYER JESSICA BROAD OF MARLBORO HIGH SCHOOL    

MOST IMPROVED  JESS BROAD

                 JESS BROAD 2015-16 HOOP GROUP MOST IMPROVED PLAYER

Jess Board is not a talker, she is a doer and at times could get lost in the crowd. She doesn’t make show stopping plays or bring attention to herself. What she does do is work and she works hard. She also has a dark secret. Jessica Board loves competition. I have seen her in the gym. She wants always to play against the best. She is insulted, if she is not matched up with a mega talented player. It could also be the reason that no player in recent year has made the statistical jump she made this season.

 

BROAD

Jess Board had a very solid freshman season. She averaged 4.0 points and 3.0 rebounds, not a bad start for any baby. But this year Jessica Board did not just step up…she blew up and it started from day one of the season. Board sent a message to the shore, there is a new star developing with a double/double to start her sophomore year; with a 17 point 14 rebound game. Then she followed that up with a 17 point 7 rebound game. But just to make sure everyone knew she was the real deal, Jessica Board in her third game against then the #12 team in the state Franklin, she went for 12 points 5 rebounds and 5 steals. If there was any question about JESSICA BOARD stepping up…they were answered BIG TIME.

BOARD

What makes Jessica Board rise so shocking is this, as a freshman she had exactly one double figure scoring game. This past season, it was story when she did not have a double figure scoring game. But what was even more shocking was this season she had 7 double/double games. Included in those double/doubles was a 18 point, 15 rebound game vs Wall. Her monster performance against Neptune cannot be understated. In a game that saw her post a double/double with 13 points and 11 rebounds. She also had 4 dimes and 3 steals. Like she did all year, she filled up the stat sheet  on that night, while doing the little things that don’t show up in a box score. Like knocking down the game tying three to force the game into over-time.

BOARD

Jessica Board has a classic college body, she is long and athletic. She is lighting quick to the ball and rebounds her position as well as anyone. But what I like most about Jess Board is this, she had improved her jump shot. She has now become a very good ball handler and excellent passer under pressure. She is becoming a well-rounded player. She is doing all this by playing the right way and more importantly understanding that she needs to continue to improve upon. This year Marlboro played what could be the 3rd or 4th best schedule in the state. I believe it helped Jessica Board realize she is as good as anyone and it fueled her special season.

BROADJESS

 When you think of the best babies in the SHORE CONFERENCE, how often does the name Jessica Board come up? I bet not very often, but name 5 sophomores in the shore that had a better year playing against the competition, she did this year…GOOOD LUCK! Because right now Jessica Board is moving into  ALL STAR status and if things go the way I expect them too. One day Jessica Board is going to be one of the best players in the SHORE CONFERENCE. For now she will settle for being THE HOOP GROUP 2015-16 MOST IMPROVED PLAYER.
