Ossining Is Proud Of Its Three Stars
Feb 01, 2018Posted by james

As she waited for the opposing team to arrive for the game, Ossining junior forward Aubrey Griffin passed the time by shooting three-pointers from various areas of the court. She hit each one until the 11th shot. The pregame activity foreshadowed her game performance.

Aubrey scored 30 points, including the 1,000th of her high school career. She drove to the rim on a breakaway layup for the milestone basket.

After missing last season with a torn ACL, Aubrey has returned and reached this goal in just 40 games. She is the second-fastest young lady to score 1,000 points in the program’s history. The only player who accomplished this quicker is Saniya Chong. She now plays for the WNBA Dallas Wings.

Ossining’s coach recalled that it took a while for Aubrey to play more aggressively and to take more shots. He had to convince her that it was okay to go to the basket, rather than pass, when the defense provided her with the opportunity to score.

Among Aubrey, Saniya and current UConn freshman Andra Espinoza-Hunter, the Ossining team has featured three of the best players seen in this section of girl’s high school basketball. All have played for Ossining within the last six years. According to the coach, Saniya is the best basketball player, Andra has the best work ethic and Aubrey has the best athletic ability.

Appropriately, the Ossining team name is Pride. The school certainly has a lot of it in these three stars.
