posted in: Basketball, News

Salpointe point guard and Desert Speed School athlete Kylee Callahan was named to the All-Tournament team for the Nike Tournament of Champions, according to Brittany Bowyer of AllSportsTucson.

Callahan’s efforts on the court were recognized over the weekend, as she was named to the Nike Tournament of Champions’ All-Tournament team for the John Anderson Bracket of competition. She finished the four-game stretch averaging 16.5 points per game, 4.5 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 3.2 steals.


“She may only be five-foot-eight, but she’s a force to be reckoned with in the paint,” [head coach Joseph] Luevano said. “One of her greatest strengths is her defense, and she’s become very comfortable guarding players who are bigger than her. She’s improved a lot on her physical and mental toughness in our weight room this off season.”

On the season, Callahan is averaging 19 points/game and 7 rebounds/game for the Lancers on 55% shooting from the field.
