Allen, a 5-foot-6 freshman guard from Mission Hills High School, has been a key factor on both ends of the court as the Comets have gone 17-2 on the season, 6-0 to lead the PCAC and are ranked No. 6 in the state and tied for No. 2 in Southern California.

Last week, Allen scored 12 points in Palomar's 84-44 victory over Grossmont and contributed nine points and 11 rebounds in their 83-48 win over North County rival MiraCosta.

Griffin, the Spartans' 5-foot-8 sophomore point guard out of San Clemente High School, scored 27 points, more than half MiraCosta's total, against Palomar. She also had six rebounds.

Honorable mention honorees were Palomar basketball player Jessica Scott, Grossmont basketball player Jasmine Patrick and San Diego City basketball player Darrian Castillo.

Scott, a 5-foot-11 sophomore forward from West Hills High School, had 15 points and 8 rebounds in Palomar's win over MiraCosta that concluded the Comets' 2-0 week.

Patrick, a 6-foot sophomore forward from Nathan Bedford Forrest High School in Jacksonville, Florida (which since has been renamed Westside High School), scored 10 points and grabbed nine rebounds for Grossmont vs. Palomar. She had 11 points, 10 boards and four assists as the Griffins downed San Diego City 60-52.

Castillo, a sophomore point guard from Eastlake High School, dished off seven assists in City's 60-49 victory over Imperial Valley. She played the entire 40 minutes vs. Grossmont and contributed 12 points, five rebounds and four assists.
