The pink team, coached by Hasbrouck Heights' Swati Shivkumar, won the game.

The following players competed on the pink team:

  • Chloe Derian, 8th grader from River Edge, NJ - Chloe is an extremely versatile player who dominates in the post. She has a great turn and face move, but is athletic enough to bring the ball up the court and shoot jumpers.
  • Ore Agoro, 7th grader from Paramus, NJ - Ore has great velocity. Her speed propels her to the basket and makes her a great defender.
  • Julia Mordecai, 8th grader from Elmwood Park, NJ - Julia is fundamentally sound. She sets her feet for shots, makes smart passes, and plays solid defense.
  • Cara Faulkner, 8th grader from Teaneck, NJ - She is such a great ball handler that it seems as if the ball is magnetically drawn to her hand.
  • Ava Duran, 8th grader from Glen Rock, NJ - She is a high percentage shooter from everywhere on the court.
  • Payton Intindola, 7th grader from Secaucus, NJ - She has a nice hook shot in the post. She also plays strong defense.

  • Sofia Skinner, 8th grader from Dumont, NJ - Sofia has a great long-range three point shot.
  • Emma Plutnicki, 7th grader from River Edge, NJ - Emma can score from inside and out.
  • Annaliese Kehm, 8th grader from Glen Rock, NJ - Annaliese is a versatile post who plays big inside, but also has speed and quickness. She can shoot and rebound.
  • Caitlin Dooner, 8th grader from Glen Rock, NJ - Caitlin can push the ball up court. She sets her feet for shots and makes good passing decisions.
  • Jaelyn Wohlrab, 7th grader from Secaucus, NJ - Lightning fast player who can hit from the outside and lead a fast break.
