In a season filled with outstanding players, Whatcom Hoops ranked the top 30 girls. Each day we featured an amazing player in our county and counted down until we got to #1. We hope you enjoyed the countdown as we honored the best of the best.
Mari Binning, junior, Squalicum
WHY SHE’S #9: The motor that ran the Storm offense, Binning teamed with another 5-foot-6 junior guard, Makayla Heaton, to give Squalicum one of the most dynamic backcourts in the Northwest Conference. Binning played 31 minutes a game and averaged 14 points, 4 assists, and 4 steals. A quick-handed defender who ran the fastbreak better than anyone in the league not named Coppinger, Binning was a second team all-NWC selection.
COACH JENNY BROWN: “Mari attended every practice and game and was face guarded in pretty much every game we played this season. She showed growth as a point guard and had 10 assists in the playoff win against Lakewood.”
