Let us get it started! Here are the finalists for Public School Women's Basketball Player of the Year!
PLAYER OF THE YEAR FINALIST: Rori Harmon, Cypress Creek
Rori Harmon was the straw that stirred the drink at Cypress Creek as the point guard of the Cougars. Harmon averaged 18.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, 5.8 assists per game and was a menace on the defensive side averaging 5.2 steals per game. She helped guide Cy Creek to the Class 6A State Championship game for a second-straight year and third time in four seasons. Harmon is signed to the University of Texas and was also a McDonald's All-American selection.
PLAYER OF THE YEAR FINALIST: Kyndall Hunter, Cypress Creek
Kyndall Hunter is the other piece to the puzzle that has made Cy Creek so good for the past four years. Hunter, just like Harmon, started on varsity starting in her freshman season. This year, Hunter averaged a team-leading 18.9 points per game and is signed to the University of Texas. Hunter was also a McDonald's All-American selection.
PLAYER OF THE YEAR FINALIST: Kaiya Wynn, Foster
Kaiya Wynn only spent one season in H-Town after moving to town from Tennessee in the offseason but her impact was felt. The senior, who signed with the University of Tennessee, averaged 29 points and 10.8 rebounds per game for the Falcons, who went undefeated in district play.
