A pair of veteran youth talents starred for Wesleyan this season in Albis Amaya and Juawon Ebanks. Amaya was the leading scorer and rebounder, averaging 16.2 points and 15.8 rebounds per contest. Ebanks was the top passer, averaging four assists per game.

A girls league was also held and featured four teams in the Lynx, Sparks, Monarch and Comets. Chloe Powery of the Comets was the top scorer (27.7 ppg) and April Ebanks of the Sparks was the top rebounder (22.3 rpg).
