Player of the year
TIFFANY DAVIS, SOPHOMORE, HAMPTON
Led the Hampton Crabbers to their first Group AAA state title since 2001, averaging 18.3 points, 4.5 assists, six rebounds and four steals per game. During that run, Davis was named the Eastern Region Player of the Year and was also named first-team all-state. She led the Crabbers to the Peninsula District regular-season and tournament titles and was the first PD girls player to record a quadruple-double — 33 points, 12 assists, 11 steals and 10 rebounds in just 31/2 quarters — in a 117-25 rout of Warwick on
Dec. 5. Davis managed a career-high of 43 points in a PD tournament win over Gloucester. In her two years at Hampton, she has led the Crabbers to a 55-5 record. Davis was probably the most exciting player in the PD this season, boys or girls. She broke down opposing defenses with her dribbling ability, sped past defenders at will, consistently knocked down 3-pointers and drained clutch shots for the Crabbers at the ends of games throughout the season. Also, in the state tournament she locked up Oakton guard Jasmine Thomas, a Duke signee and McDonald’s All-American, forcing her to 8-of-28 shooting from the field. Davis also held Edison star Doreena Campbell, a UCLA signee, in check before getting into foul trouble. Both defensive efforts were key to the Crabbers’ title run.
Year: Senior. School: Hampton.
Anchored the Crabbers’ frontcourt, averaging 12 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks. But as effective as Lewis was on both ends of the floor, she was an even better passer, leading the team with 6.5 assists per game.
Year: Junior. School: Heritage.
Named the PD Player of the Year after averaging 22 points per game during the regular season. Johnson was a matchup problem all season because of her slashing ability and endurance. Toward the end of the season she also showed the ability to knock down the perimeter jump shot. She led the Hurricanes to the state tournament for the first time in school history.
Year: Junior. School: Heritage.
The brute force in the paint this season for the Canes, who also ignited the fast break, Holston came through with clutch buckets whenever they needed one. She averaged 16 points and 11 rebounds.
Year: Senior. School: Jamestown.
The forward averaged 14.1 points per game to help the Eagles win the Bay Rivers District regular-season and tournament championships, as well as reach the Region I semifinals. She was chosen first-team all-Bay Rivers District and first-team all-Region I, as well as honorable mention all-state Group AA.
Year: Senior. School: Walsingham Academy.
She averaged 27 points per game for Walsingham. Carr was chosen as the Tidewater Conference of Independent Schools Most Valuable Player for the regular season and for the state independent tournament for the third consecutive season.
