After taking a backseat to Rosalyn Gold-Onwude, Keri-Ann Jetter and Annamarie Ciorciari for much of the season, Jessica McEntee picked the state Federation Class C championship game to have her best game of the year as the Stanners defeated South Seneca, 51-47.

The 6-foot forward from Flushing earned game MVP honors, scoring 20 points and 12 rebounds as Molloy dominated the boards, 36-28 — 23-6 on the offensive glass.

“We wanted this game more than any others,” said McEntee, whose layup put Molloy ahead 17-6 early on. “Especially on the offensive boards we boxed out and got third and fourth chances. It’s how we got the lead in the beginning.”
