    Kind of contradicting yourself, a couple years back Bailey Cummins was arguably the best player in the Region but I believe Whitney O'Mara won the award even though Cummins had better stats but she had a team that wasn't successful. Same thing this year Celphane and Reed will both be on teams that won't be as successful as those as GRC and Campbell simply because they don't have the talent/depth on the roster that they do.

    I'm not sure there is a "fair" way to go about doing this award, as I made the case for O'Mara to be POY over Cummins back in 2015 because I thought she was the better overall player that had to sacrifice her shot attempts for the well being of the team, but other people made the case for Cummins because of the numbers she was putting up night in and night out.

    Cummings won POY her senior year and OMara won it last year.

    True, but when it's a voting system having multiple deserving players on the same team tends to split votes. Different players have standout games and get the nod for #1. When you have one "star" on a team they get the nod. I think Clephane comes out with this one.

    So what you are saying is it doesn't necessarily mean that the best player in the region is the winner just that if a team only has one star then they usually win. Just because a person scores mores points doesn't make them the best player. I think it should be based on the whole realm of the game.
