Playing their best team basketball of the season, the Lady Dragons repeated as champions of the Cranberry Tournament this past weekend, with Alexa Bupp playing her best overall basketball of the season. It could have just as easily been given to D.J. Hahn – with 25 points in the first game of the tournament – or Paige Wilson – with two double-doubles, but Bupp was named to the all-tournament team for a balanced effort of 26 points, 20 rebounds and 12 assists over two games, including a 19-10-5 line in the championship game. In a total team effort, Bupp will represent Warren as the Times Observer Female Athlete of the Week, sponsored by Little Caesars.
