Frog & Firkin Girls Basketball Player of the Week: Sabino’s Kiya Dorroh


Sabino junior forward Kiya Dorroh had quite a week to help the Sabercats beat previously unbeaten Sahuaro and continue their winning streak to seven games with victories over Safford and Catalina.

Her effort has merited her the AllSportsTucson.com Frog & Firkin Player of the Week.

Dorroh scored 20 points in the 51-41 win over Sahuaro at McKale Center during the MLK Classic. Defensively, she helped put the clamps on Sahuaro standout Alyssa Brown, limiting her to 17 points. Brown entered the game averaging 30.9 points.

Dorroh also scored 17 points in a 55-25 win at Safford and 21 points in a 92-27 victory at Catalina. Dorroh has narrowed her top five college choices to Texas, Nebraska, North Carolina, Vanderbilt and Missouri.

The Sabercats are 18-4 overall and tied atop the 3A South with Tanque Verde. Both teams are 4-0 in region play. The Sabercats host the Hawks on Tuesday in a significant matchup.
