Nicole Munger, Central Bucks West guard
Central Bucks West was always going to be a good basketball team this season. But the Bucks weren't just good over the course of 34 games, they were great, and the play of the gutsy, 5-foot-10 senior was the difference.
For elevating her team to new heights, Nicole Munger is the Player of the Year in Southeastern ennsylvania.
The Michigan-bound Munger was the epitome of hustle. She led the PIAA Class AAAA state runner-up and District 1 champion Bucks in almost every category, including points (17.5 per game), rebounds (8), assists (3.2), steals (3.4), and three-pointers (45). Munger scored 587 points and was an 85 percent free-throw shooter.
Munger took over not just offensive possessions or quarters, but whole games for the Bucks - and only when she absolutely had to. If she didn't have to shoot, she wouldn't, instead passing it off to her teammates. Munger was also terrific defensively.
