    Amazing that Baleigh Reid of Twinsburg is not nominated! She averages over 20 points and is a defensive stopper while playing a tough schedule as Twinsburg always does. Averaging over 25 the second half of the season. She has scored over 30 points multiple times this season while being double and tripled team every single game. Other than Kelsey Mitchell, I have not seen a more dominate guard than Baleigh in the state and definitely not in NE OH. She has been the best and most dominate player on the court in practically every game that she has played this year. Without her the team would have won maybe 5 games max and definitely would not be playing at regionals. Would be interested in knowing the criteria that you used as can’t follow how a person averaging 10 points is a candidate ?? Would like to know criteria for NOC player of year too? Is it based on the past or this year. I would argue that Baleigh is the most dominate player in the NOC with the stats to back it up.

    For the second time this season Baleigh Reid outplayed Marquia Turner in their head to head matchup in the reg semifinal scoring a game high 24 pts while Marquia had 8 pts. Clearly Baleigh has has a much more dominate season than Turner and most players on the above list but somehow is not being recognized. Fortunately she already has 2 state. D1 Championship rings , McDonald Allamerican nominee, OGBR Top 25 seniors, et. which I am sure she wouldn’t trade to be nominated on this website ….these nominations are really questionable!
