NSW Player Interview // Sami Valentine, Benet Academy Girls Basketball

Coming off her second straight state title, Benet Academy girls basketball starting senior guard Sami Valentine sits down with Naperville Sports Weekly’s Nico Haeflinger for our weekly player interview.

Head Coach Joe Kilbride inserted Valentine into a starting role at the beginning of the season, and the 5’7″ guard flourished as a defensive stopper. The senior missed only one game all year and her three pointer to open the state final against Fremd pushed her over the century mark in points for the season.

Valentine will attend Indiana University in the fall as a business major.
