Another Play of the Week and it’s another Huskie making a big defensive play. This time it’s Layla Henderson. Presented by Trunnell Insurance.

We got a big DVC conference matchup at Naperville North High School as the Huskies host the Waubonsie Valley Warriors. WV is in third place in the DVC and defeated Oswego in its recent matchup while the Huskies are ahead in second, but lost to Nazareth Academy earlier this week. Both teams look to keep pace with first place Neuqua Valley.

After Naperville North commits a turnover, Arianna Garcia-Evans gets the steal and looks to go coast to coast, but Layla Henderson spikes the ball out of bounds from behind. An impressive defensive play as she shows great instincts to knock it away.

Peyton Fenner gets past Khaliah Reid to get to the rim. She misses the short jumper, but gets her own rebound, goes back up with her left hand, and scores on the and one. North bounces back with a strong performance at home winning 57-39.
