Top 30 LI Players to Watch: Rebecca Musgrove
Rebecca Musgrove is the conusmate all-around basketball player.
She may not light up the scoreboard with flashy numbers, but consistency has been the name to her game. Despite being hampered by injuries throughout the 2011-12 season, the senior guard averaged a solid 11.8 points, 5.6 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 3.2 steals for the Friars.
Because of that performance last season, Musgrove is one of MSGVarsity.com's Top 30 Long Island players to watch for the 2012-2013 school year.
Musgrove always found a way to make a dent on the scoresheet. She led her team with 17 points as St. Anthony's ended the regular season undefeated for the second straight year with a 55-35 win over Kellenberg.
Prior to the start of the regular season Musgrove was named MVP of the eighth annual Metro Classic, which features the best from New York City taking on the best from the suburbs.
“She’s a phenomenal player,” Baldwin coach Tom Catapano said following the Metro Classic. “If I had to sum her up in one word it would be competitive. She’s the ultimate competitor and when she’s on the court, it just seems like we start winning.
"She plays defense as hard as she does offense and in 2011 that’s not always the case. She’s something special.”
Her efforts were good enough to be named to the 2012 Newsday All-Long Island girls basketball first team.
