A spotlight on the Times’ players of the week
Chivarsky Corbett, Tampa Catholic
Skinny: In a seven-game stretch, which included two holiday tournaments, the 6-foot-6 junior wing player averaged 30.1 points and 11.1 rebounds. The highlight — a school-record 50-point effort against Sarasota Cardinal Mooney in the semifinals of the City of Tampa Championships, during which Corbett eclipsed the 1,000-point mark for his career. “He impressed us with his 3-point range — hitting deep 3s, and he has great touch on his assortment of floaters,” said Jesuit coach Neal Goldman, whose team topped Corbett’s, 72-61. “He also is a force with his length defensively.”
Lauren Boerger, Newsome
Skinny: In three games, the 5-foot-10 junior guard averaged 27 points, nine rebounds and five steals. She had her best game in a 65-58 loss to Longwood Lyman, going for 31 points, 10 rebounds, four steals, two blocks and an assist. Boerger followed that up with 27 points, 11 rebounds, seven steals, two assists and a block in a loss to Etowah (Ga.). Boerger is averaging 19 points, seven rebounds, six steals, three assists and 1.6 blocks per game — all team highs — for the Wolves, who are in first place in Class 8A, District 7. Coach Sara Bogue said Boerger is “definitely one of the top players in the area.”
