Rori Martinez

YC junior forward


The lowdown:

Rori was a pivotal asset in the Shamrocks going 16-3 in AIA play and winning the 3A Metro West region title. The junior forward had success offensivel­y, averaging eight points per game, but she really showed up on the defensive end of the floor, as she was named the region’s Defensive Player of the Year. Rori logged six double-digit rebound performanc­es (averaging 7.5 RPG) and finished the year with 53 blocks (3.1 per game). Coach Bob McGalliard:

“Rori is an outstandin­g all-around basketball player. She can score inside or take her defender out on the perimeter and make a jump shot. At the defensive end, she is a great on-ball defender and is always in great position to give help whether it is from the weak side or sliding over to block a shot. Her anticipati­on in our press has led to many steals and transition baskets for her teammates. Rebounding is a key ingredient to winning basketball games and Rori is an outstandin­g rebounder on both ends of the court.”
