1993 PREP BASKETBALL / Los Angeles Times ALL-STARS : 20 Players Who Got Their Points Across on the Court : Girls: Standouts from traditional powers are joined by stars from Crescenta Valley and Franklin.


While La Canada, Marshall and Flintridge Sacred Heart maintained their status, Crescenta Valley and Franklin helped to improve the overall strength of girls' basketball in the Glendale area this past season.

La Canada repeated as Rio Hondo League champion, Marshall was unbeaten in the Northern Conference and Flintridge Sacred Heart won the Sunshine League.

Crescenta Valley, under first-year Coach Marc Ward, won its first Pacific League championship. Franklin advanced to the City Section playoffs.

All of these teams are represented on The Times' 1993 Glendale all-star team. The 10 players were selected based upon ballots received from area coaches, all of whom were asked to participate.

Players selected to the first team will be honored at a breakfast April 18 at the Pasadena Hilton. The area player and coach of the year will also be announced at the breakfast.

Here is a player-by-player look at the team:

Yammir Carbonell, Eagle Rock--Carbonell, a 5-foot-1 junior guard, averaged 17.3 points a game for the Eagles. She also averaged four rebounds and four assists for a team that figures to be a contender for the Northern Conference title next season.

Liz Doud, Flintridge Sacred Heart--Doud, a junior, averaged 15 points for the Tologs. She was a solid rebounder who helped provide leadership the team.

Nancy Evans, Hoover--Evans, a senior, averaged 20 points, five rebounds, three assists and four steals for the Tornadoes. Evans will attend Arizona in the fall on a softball scholarship.

Maria Fulay, Marshall--Fulay, a 5-3 senior guard, averaged 13.2 points and four rebounds for the Barristers, who were undefeated in the Northern Conference. Fulay led Marshall to an upset victory over Fremont in the City 4-A Division playoffs.
