Kristen Simon walks into the arena at 6’1 all smiles and very humble as she patiently waits her chance to display what a physical, dominant and skillful post plays like. Simon’s big frame seal’s off any player in the paint that feels they can deny her access to the paint, uses her big body to her advantage and is not afraid to bang. The mobility of Simon in the half court setting is what makes her so special, pops out 15ft faces up and attacks the hole with some of the best foot work I’ve seen from a player of her size, not to mention she can knock down the jumper if you leave her open. Mater Dei had no answer for Simon like a lot of other teams which allowed Simon to take full advantage, scoring 14 points and grabbing 17 rebounds to help her Lady Wildcats beat Mater Dei for the Regional Championship game. Simon will have her hands full next week as her Lady Wildcats head to Sac to face Bishop O Dowd.
