Basketball Players of the Week, Jan 1-7

Boys

Berks I

Meme Burdine, Reading

Burdine has been a crucial part of the Red Knights offense in their two wins this past week. Burdine scored 20 points in the win over Easton on Saturday and added a team-high 13 on Tuesday against Muhlenberg.  The Red Knights now boast a 7-4 overall record.

Berks II

Cartier Talford, Conrad Weiser

Largely overlooked at the start of the season, Talford is possibly the breakout player of Berks County through the early stages of the season.  Talford finished with a team-high 18 in the Scouts win over Governor Mifflin on Saturday.  On Tuesday he posted a career best 25 points in a win over division rival Fleetwood.  He is now averaging 14.7 points per game.

Berks III

Chase Hartman, Wyomissing

In their only contest this week, Chase Hartman helped push the Spartans past Brandywine Heights, scoring a team-high 13 points.  The win helped pull the Spartans above .500 for the season and also helped them improve to 3-0 in Berks III.

Girls

Berks I

Jessie Wallace and Carley Brew, Wilson

The low post combo of Jessie Wallace and Carley Brew both celebrated scoring their 1000th career point in the same game on Saturday against Harrisburg.  Wallace posted 17 points in the contest while Brew posted 12.  Despite losing 5 games in a row, all to non-league teams, the Lady Bulldogs look poised to make a run for the Berks I title.

Berks II

Devon Merritt, Berks Catholic

The Lady Saints got a big boost this week from sophomore forward Devon Merritt. Merritt posted 14 points in a win over Muhlenberg Saturday.  She then followed that performance by pouring in 24 to help Berks Catholic hold off Hamburg.  The Lady Saints remain in first place in Berks II.

Berks III

Taylor Boyer, Tulpehocken

Taylor Boyer emerged this week as the scoring threat that the Lady Trojans needed to keep them perfect in league play.  Boyer poured in a game-high 17 points against Williams Valley on Saturday.  On Monday she posted 18 points to help Tulpehocken get past Kutztown.
