RILEY BAGLEY, TABIONA: When it's time for someone to take over a game, Bagley steps up like he did in the Tigers' 50-46 victory over St. Joseph 10 days ago.

The junior, who missed most of the first half, scored 14 of his 21 points in the second half to lead the Tigers to the victory.

"He can create shots and take over a game when he needs to, but he can still play within the team concept," Tabiona coach Lee Gines said.

In his past four games, Bagley, 5-foot-11, 165 pounds, has scored 27, 20, 21 and 30 points.

"He plays a lot bigger than he looks. He can post up or shoot the outside shot," Gines said. "We can use him about anywhere we want. He's a pretty versatile player."

Currently, he's ninth-best in the state in scoring, at 20.7 points a game.

BRITTANY TRESSLER, Mountain View: This senior didn't have to play last year's Ms. Basketball Danielle Cheesman's position, but she did have to fill her shoes in another way.

One of only two seniors for last year's 5A state championship Bruins, Tressler had to be a leader on one of the state's most talented teams.

"She's done a good job of stepping up and taking Danielle's place as a leader," said coach Dave Houle.

"I love being around her because of her personality. She's really competitive, but she never loses her cool. She plays with a lot of heart and personality."

Tressler is almost perfect from the free-throw line and works hard off the court to maintain her 3.9 GPA. She scored 34 points in Bruin wins last week.
