With the Imperial Valley League girls basketball title still up for grabs, Brawley Union High's Lisa LeBaron brought her team a little closer with double-doubles in two Wildcat victories last week.
LeBaron, a 17-year-old senior, wears No. 23 in something of a tribute to Michael Jordan. And LeBaron has come up big in clutch situations, just like M.J.
On Jan. 30 she scored 28 points and pulled down 11 rebounds in Brawley's 69-49 ripping of Southwest.
Then, in a crucial IVL contest against then-undefeated Calexico on Thursday, she scored 23 points and totaled 11 rebounds as the Wildcats won 57-36.
At 5-foot-11, LeBaron has stood head and shoulders above her competition in becoming arguably the best girls basketball player in the Valley.
