STARTING FIVE

Guard – Nicole Boudreau, Jr., Andover
The state's Gatorade Player of the Year and Merrimack Valley Conference Player of the Year led the Golden Warriors to their second straight Division 1 state title, and put up impressive numbers in her junior season: 23.1 points, 7.7 rebounds, 4.9 steals, 4.5 assists and two blocks, as the Warriors went 27-1. Boudreau is verbally committed to Boston College.

Guard – Natalie Gomez-Martinez, Sr., Andover
Together with Boudreau, the 5-foot-6 Gomez-Martinez formed the state's most formidable backcourt, and backed it up with some impressive numbers of her own. She averaged 13.5 points, 5.6 assists, 5.3 rebounds and 4.3 steals as the Golden Warriors won their second straight Division 1 state championship. Gomez-Martinez will continue her career next fall at Division 1 Marist College.

Guard – Blake Dietrick, Sr., Wellesley
The Raiders made a surprise early exit from the Division 1 South tournament, but the 5-foot-11 Dietrick leaves Wellesley as one of the school's all-time greatest athletes. This season she averaged 20.1 points, 8.3 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 3.9 steals and was named the Bay State Conference's MVP. She also hit 52 three-pointers this season. She leaves Wellesley with 1,440 career points, and is the school's all-time leading scorer for either gender in both basketball and lacrosse. Dietrick will continue her basketball career next fall at Princeton University.

Forward – Elizabeth Belanger, Jr., Acton-Boxborough
The 5-foot-11 junior continued the momentum from sophomore season, in which she won the Dual County League's MVP, to held the Colonials break through to the TD Garden floor in 2011. After outlasting archrival Lincoln-Sudbury in overtime, the Colonials made it to the Division 1 North final at the Garden, where they lost to eventual state champ Andover. For the season, Belanger averaged 20.5 points, 11.4 rebounds and 2.7 steals, and registered her 1,000th point in a D1 North first round win over Billerica.

Center – Tori Faieta, Sr., St. Mary’s
At 6-foot-2, the senior imposed her will around the rim for four years, culminating this season with a Division 3 state championship, the school's first state title since 2003. She was named the Catholic Central League's MVP, and is a four-time league all-star. This season, she averaged 13 points and 11.2 rebounds, and finishes as the all-time leading scorer (1,471 points) and rebounder (1,416 boards) in school history. She will continue her basketball career next fall at Stonehill College.

BEST OF THE REST

Cassi Amenta, Sr., St. Mary’s
Together with Faieta, the 5-foot-11 Amenta formed one of the state's most vicious frontcourts, culminating with a Division 3 state title. The two-time Catholic Central League All-Star leaves St. Mary's as the third all-time leading scorer (907 points), including averages of 10.5 points and 7.6 rebounds this season.

Nicole Beresford, Sr., Marshfield
The 5-foot-11 Beresford has been a rock for the Lady Rams since her freshman year, earning Atlantic Coast League All-Star nods in all four of her years on the varsity and earning a McDonald's All-American nod this season. She averaged 22.4 points and 11.2 rebounds in her senior season, and leaves Marshfield as the school's all-time leading scorer for either gender (1,804 points). Beresford will continue her career next fall at Dartmouth.

Sophie Bikofsky, Sr., Newton South
As co-MVP of the Dual County League for the Large division champs, the 5-foot-11 Bikofsky honed her reputation as one of the area's best shooters. This season she averaged 18.5 points, seven rebounds and 2.7 steals, and memorably got her 1,000th point within 30 seconds of teammate and fellow All-Stater Kendall Burton. Bikofsky will continue her career next fall at Brown.

Kendall Burton, Sr., Newton South
The DCL's other co-MVP was just as versatile on the court as her counterpart Bikofsky. She averaged 15.5 points, six rebounds and 1.7 assists for the Lions as they advanced to the Division 1 South semifinals. Burton, along with Bikofsky, was also a McDonald's All-American nominee this season. She will continue her career next fall at Villanova University.

Defense vaults No. 10 Reading to Middlesex title

READING, Mass. -- Unable to solve archrival Stoneham and its variety of presses and zones through the first 16 minutes of play, the Reading girls basketball team found itself challenging one another in the locker room at halftime, to step it up on their own defensive end.

Clearly, the message didn't fall upon deaf ears. The No. 10 Rockets finished the third quarter on a 17-2 run and cruised from there, never letting the lead cut to single-digits again as they downed the No. 15 Spartans, 69-56, to clinch the Middlesex League title outright after splitting it three ways a season ago.

Reading improved to 19-1, and swept the season series with the Spartans in this last year of a one-division Middlesex (the league splits into Large and Small divisions next season with the arrivals of Arlington and Wilmington). Stoneham fell to 16-2.

"At halftime, we talked about defense," said senior forward Carlene Kluge, who ended up with 13 points and five rebounds on Senior Night. "Our defense was not what we wanted it to be in the first half, so in the second half we picked it up. We got the steals, and made it more of a running game, so that was good."

Holding a 30-26 lead at the break and struggling with the many looks Stoneham head coach Angela Billings threw at them -- from a full-court man-to-man press, sideline traps and various 2-3 and 1-3-1 looks -- the Rockets looked to speed things up in the third quarter. Coupled with their size advantage, boasting at least four starters taller than 5-foot-8, it was a tough dosage to handle.

Five-foot-10 sophomore guard Olivia Healy (22 points, 12 rebounds, five steals) was at the forefront of the replenished attack, deflecting entry passes on the wing to start a series of fast breaks, and push the ball in transition to try and draw three-point plays. Reading outscored Stoneham 23-14 in the third to seize the lead for good, but it was the play of Healy and sophomore Morgan O'Brien (18 points) over the final two minutes that stretched the lead into the teens.

First, Healy swiped an entry pass at the three-point line, slipped by Stoneham point guard Ariana Tuccelli (11 points, five assists, five steals) and laid it in easily on a breakaway. The next trip down, she pulled up on the left wing for a three-pointer, holding her follow-through as the ball sank.

O'Brien then finished it out with 22 seconds left in the quarter, rebounding her own errant three-pointer and drawing a foul on the way up to a successful put-back, and then converting the free throw for a 53-40 lead headed into the final stanza.

Overall for the second half, the Rockets shot better than 41 percent from the field, and were 15 of 20 from the free throw line.

"Third quarter, our defense picked it up," Reading head coach Kim Penney said. "I thought our denial defense on the wing was much better. (We were) much more aggressive in the lanes, we got some steals."

When asked what sparked her in that third quarter, Healy said, "Wanting it so much. Wednesday we had off, but Thursday we had a great practice. It was all defense, we didn't take it easy, and it was like a spark under all of us. We just went. We just kept going."

As well as the Rockets can run, the first half showcased their ability to gun, too. They were 6 of 10 on three-pointers in the first half, including three from O'Brien, and went on an 8-0 run late in the second quarter to take a four-point halftime lead.

Senior center Melissa DalPozzo also had 11 points for Reading, while senior Alison Brennan also reached double-figures for Stoneham with 10 points.

"I told them I could not have asked for a better effort tonight," Billings said. "I mean, Reading shot lights out, without a doubt. You know, we got into foul trouble, that didn't help, but I thought our effort was outstanding."

No. 8 Reading outmuscles No. 14 Stoneham

STONEHAM, Mass. -- Dribbling out the final seconds of the fourth quarter with her team comfortably ahead by double digits, Reading sophomore guard Olivia Healy crashed onto the hardwood after drawing an intentional foul from a disgruntled Stoneham defender.

Though subsequently going 1 for 2 at the line had little effect on the game, the foul itself served as a microcosm for the contest’s physical brand of play. Yet when 32 minutes of bumping and bodying by conference powers was completed, Reading (11-0) outfought Stoneham (9-2) on the road, 57-42, preserving its perfect record and position atop the Middlesex League.

“It’s like, a lot of fouls,” Reading head coach Kim Penney said of the game’s brute style. “It was a tough one. [Stoneham] is a physical team. They didn’t give up, that’s for sure. They played hard until the very end, and you’ve got to give them credit for that. But our kids are just as tough.”

Players wrestling for loose balls exposed both squads’ grit. Stoneham’s scrappy point guard, Ariana Tuccelli (eight points, five rebounds, three steals), ripped at a loose ball so hard during the first half that her opponent was sent to the floor. Minutes later, Reading captain Melissa DalPozzo (eight points, five rebounds) refused to surrender a rebound to two Stoneham forwards crashing the boards, forcing officials to call for a jump ball and separate the players.

Physical, indeed.

After a relatively sloppy first half for both teams—the Rockets led 20-15—Reading (11-0) came out of the gate on a 12-3 run, eight of which coming from forward captain Carlene Kluge (12 points, three rebounds, one assist), who was hindered by foul trouble for a good portion of the game. Altogether, the Rockets posted 21 points during the third-quarter scoring barrage.

“We had a great practice yesterday,” Penney said. “We were focused and ready to go. [Kluge], especially, was ready to go. She stayed mentally tough for everyone else. Her composure is always there and she’s a great leader.”

When Kluge picked up her fourth foul midway through the third quarter, the Rockets welcomed contributions from the sensational sophomore tandem of Healy (16 points, 12 rebounds, three steals, two assists) and Morgan O’Brien (14 points, 10 rebounds, two blocks), who combined for 14 of Reading’s 16 fourth-quarter points.

“[Healy] is one of the strongest players I’ve ever coached,” Penney said. ‘She wants the ball.”

And for Healy, it’s about believing in her counterpart’s ability to execute, she said.

“We can trust her,” Healy said of O’Brien. “She’s a great ballhandler, left and right is perfectly fine for her, and that’s a solid base to keep finishing off games.”

For her final two points, O’Brien converted a fast-break layup while getting fouled from behind, sending her to the floor holding her knee. She did not return to the game, and had her knee looked at following the game.

Despite suffering its second loss in as many games, the Spartans’ hardnosed defense had a phenomenal game statistically, forcing Reading to turn the ball over 22 times, while also tallying 11 steals, nine of which came in the first half.

For Stoneham (9-2), senior center and captain Vanessa Bramante led the way with a team-high 14 points to go along with five rebounds, four steals, one block and one assist. But a major turning point came with seven seconds left in the third period, when Bramante picked up her fourth foul on a controversial blocking foul as O’Brien attacked the basket.

Similarly, Healy picked up her fourth personal mere seconds into the fourth quarter, summoning her to the bench as Kluge—also with four fouls—re-entered the game. Stoneham’s Bramante and Reading’s Kluge fouled out within 30 seconds of each other with about three minutes to play.

The win puts the undefeated Reading squad in the conference driver’s seat, while Stoneham falls to third place, behind one-loss Woburn. For the Spartans, tonight’s third quarter exposes room for improvement, Bramante said.

“It’s about coming in strong every game,” she said. “And it really comes down to playing strong for all four quarters.”
