They say defense wins championships, but Ketchikan’s Lexi Biggerstaff learned it can also claim MVP awards.

The Everett Community College freshman used hustle and muscle to her advantage to control play on both sides of the ball and help the Trojans win their own tournament for the first time in their 22-year history.

“Lexi was instrumental,” Everett coach Chet Hoyde told the NWAC website. “Her steady defense set the tone all weekend for the Trojans’ fast-paced attack.”

Biggerstaff, of Ketchikan High fame, averaged 21.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2 steals in three games at the Everett Classic to win MVP honors for the tournament.

The 5-foot-9 sophomore poured in a career-high 33 points against Yakima Valley in a game she went 7-of-12 from 3-point land.

In the championship game against Clark, she collected 15 points and a season-high six rebounds in a 100-74 victory.

On the year, Biggerstaff is second on Everett in points [18.1], second in assists [3.6] and third in rebounds [3.9].
