NEW MIDDLETOWN OH- Any program can have a good season. They might have a great class of seniors that come together for a big run, or have someone come in to boost the roster. But to sustain success, that takes consistently having younger players step in to the spotlight. Springfield won a district championship last season, but they weren’t satisfied with just one. With a couple of returners, and a couple players stepping into bigger roles the Tigers raced to a second straight district championship. One of those players who have taken the next step to success is Mariana Tuscano.
Matiana got time on the floor last season. However coming in to this season she knew her responsibilities to this team would grow immensely. She wasn’t scared by the task ahead of her. She faced it head on. Tuscano came into the preseason ready to put in the work. Now she is reaping the benefits of that work ethic. Tuscano now leads the team in made three pointers. She’s hit 23 on the season, and shoots over 25% from beyond the arc. Tuscano averages over 6 points a game, and has brought serious depth to the Tigers offense. She’s also second on the team in free throw percentage as she is shooting 65% from the line.
Tuscano took the time to do an interview this week with YSN’s Anthony Hartwig. They talk about what makes Springfield such a special place, what it’s taken to make the steps she has, and much more. Check out this exclusive Springfield Player Profile only on YSN!
