High school basketball: Girls All-State basketball Defensive Players of the Year
Coaches are fond of saying that defense wins games.
Ironically, not every player wants to commit to the kind of defense that can actually make a difference. That's because playing tough defense requires a lot of intensity, effort and commitment, while being willing to allow others the spotlight that comes with big offensive numbers.
This year's Deseret News Defensive Players of the Year were talented athletes who were willing to contribute to their team's success in the most unselfish ways. They evolved their games, changed their roles and acted as leaders in difficult situations.
