Week in Review: Staffileno Doing it All for Brooke
Angela Staffileno is a force for the Brooke girl’s basketball team.
Against Madonna on Jan. 7, her stat line read: 25 points, 16 rebounds, 10 blocks, three steals.
So, with those kinds of numbers, one would think the 48-38 victory would be in the favor of the Bruins.
That has been the theme for Brooke (1-13) so far on the season; the 6-foot-1 sophomore does all she can to get the W, but the team falls short in the end.
“She just plays the game,” Brooke coach Ryan Scherich said.
“I don’t know if it’s because she plays volleyball or not, but she’s real smart with her hands when she puts her hands up to block. She scores points, she’s smart around the basket.
“Every game we play, they’re after her. They’re well aware of where she’s at on the court. Her advantage is, when you put a small girl on her or a tall girl on her, in our offense, she’ll get the ball either down low or up high, so she can take advantage of them.”
As a freshman, Staffileno led the Bruins with an average of 17 points, 12 rebounds and five blocks per game.
“The team tries their best to get me the ball,” Staffileno said. “We’re a young, small team so it’s kind of hard to get the ball inside.
“(The refs) don’t really call a lot of fouls on me, but they don’t call any fouls for me either. They let me get pretty beat up.”
