The PTP girls basketball players of the week

The fans’ pick

F/G Marinique Reddin, Sr., Wharton

A four-year player of varsity, Marinique Reddin showed promise last season, averaging 13.3 points and six rebounds per game. 

This season, she has put it all together with the best season of her high school career.

The senior is the go-to player for the Wildcats, averaging a team-leading 15.1 points and 8.6 rebounds per game. 

Two weeks ago, Reddin was named to the all-tournament team after leading Wharton to a 2-1 record in their bracket at the Tampa Bay Christmas Invitational. 

The fans approved of that performance. Reddin received more than 46 percent of the votes (739) to beat out Academy of the Holy Names’ Angelie Pena, who finished with more than 20 percent (331).
