UNCOVERING THE MIND OF MVP MIA

Girls high school league MVP Mia San Nicolas ran away with the top honors last week as the unanimous choice as Guam’s best high school player as a junior.

The Academy Cougar lets her play do most of the talking on the basketball floor. So GSPN went deep to uncover more about the mysterious Mia prior to her semifinals matchup Tuesday night against the Okkodo Bulldogs.

LeBron James

2) Who’s your favorite non-basketball player?

MVP Mia San Nicolas’ most prized possession is her Iphone 7.

3) What’s your most prized possession?

IPhone 7+

4) What feels better, 25 points or 20 rebounds?

20 rebounds allows my team extra possessions

5) When’s the last time you got upset on the court?

When our team lost a very close game

6) What’s coach Eddie Pelkey’s favorite saying?

“Everything you do on the court and in life is a choice” and “I don’t care about the score, I care about the way you are playing.”

7) Describe coach Pelkey in three words.

Caring, Committed, Accountable.
