FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) - The 21Alive/Parkview Sports Medicine Girls Basketball Player of the Week for Jan. 8 is the floor leader for the Canterbury Lady Cavaliers.

Junior point guard Darby Maggard scored 24 points and 10 assists last week against Triton after a 2-week layoff for the Lady Cavs.

A three-year starter at Canterbury, Maggard is taking command of the offense, and making a concerted effort at getting new players in the mix.

Maggard averages 21 points, 6 assists and 4 steals this season, and hopes her leadership as a player can one day translate as a coach.
