Tianna Germain- WTOC Player of the Week

By DaShawn Brown - email

GUYTON, Ga. (WTOC) - At a whopping five feet tall, it's obvious South Effingham Lady Mustang's guard Tianna Germain is not the biggest player on the basketball court.

Her game however, just may be.

In the past week, the freshman Germain scored 97 points in four games, leading her team to a runner-up finish in the 2-AAAA region tournament.

"Her performance last week is exactly what I've been wanting her to do all season long," said Lady Mustangs coach Stacey Womack.

"The fact that she was able to maintain that throughout four games was pretty unbelievable."

"Knowing that the last time we went to region was 2009, I wanted to make it 2011," Germain added.

Only 14 years old, Germain has assumed the role of leader of the lady Mustang's squad.  A role she's earned, along with the respect of her teammates.

"To show the maturity that she has shown and to be able to lead our team out on the floor, for her to be able to do that and just lead by example is pretty amazing for a freshman."
