From there the Lady Heels cleaned

She played an integral part in the
team’s 8-1 mark en route to the regular season title. Anglin emerged scoring
champion with 167 points, rebounding champ with 180 boards and regular season

came fifth in steals and assists. To top it off she averaged 18.6 points, 20 rebounds,
2.2 assists, 3.7 steals and 2.2 blocks per game.
Furthermore she was named finals
MVP in guiding Dominos to a two-game sweep (the squad beat the Bullets 74-38 in
game one and 44-40 in game two).
The other star Lady Heel was
Kamilla Nagy as she won the assists title with 46 dishes. Nagy was also fourth
in scoring with 113 points.
Nagy said she was more focused on
her team being champion than her individual achievement.
“It feels good. I just tried to
help the team by hustling and playing defense. At the end of the day it was a
battle but we gave our best and came out on top. That’s what matters most.”
Cayman Islands Basketball
Association President Bryan Hunter gave his thoughts on the end of women’s
hoops this year.
“It was an exciting final featuring
a close, hard-fought match in game two. I think women’s basketball was exciting
this year for the spectators. I’m pleased with the level women’s basketball is
at right now and it bodes well for the future of basketball in Cayman.
“Of course it bears mentioning that
this was the first women’s basketball league held indoors. The indoor facility
has done wonders for the sport. I thank Dart Realty for making the Center
available to us and allowing it to be a tremendous boon to the sport in Cayman.
“Lastly I thank the league’s title sponsor,
the Cayman Islands Real Estate Brokers Association, who gave tremendous support
throughout the season.”
