All-Defense: Jenny Kinsey, Howard (senior, guard)

Kinsey was the leader on the defensive end for the Lions, who averaged a county-best 38.5 points against this season. Kinsey, who is signed to play lacrosse at Jacksonville University next spring, used her quickness and size (listed at 5’9) to mark the opposition’s best offensive player game-to-game. She has tremendous court awareness and does a lot of little things on the floor, which doesn’t get picked up on the stat chart. However, without a question, the senior captain was crucial to Howard’s tremendous success during its 2016-2017 season.

Kinsey finished the year with 48 steals (two per game), led her team with 26 deflections and was also second on the team in blocked shots (13).
