Here are Scorebook Live’s 2019-2020 All-Ventura County girls basketball teams. Team success, statistics and strength of schedule were the primary criteria.
We also took into account the voting of the Ventura County Basketball Coaches Association (VCBCA), who put out first and second teams of 12 each. All seven of our first team members were also on the VCBCA’s first team.
Defensive Player of the Year: C Omamoke Okah – Oaks Christian – FR.
The 6-3 C averaged over two blocks a game in just her freshman year. When she wasn’t blocking shots, she was altering them for a top-two or top-three defense and team in the county.
Breakout Player of the Year: G Myla Scott – Hueneme – SO.
Scott averaged just over five points per game as a freshman before taking over as a sophomore, winning co-MVP of the Citrus Coast League and averaging 11.9 points, five rebounds, 4.3 assists, and two steals per game. The county’s top PG prospect in the Class of 2022 was still getting back in the swing of things her freshman year after ACL surgery and she’s still on the way up, as is the entire Hueneme program.
