School: Corona del Mar
Flint scored 66 points in Corona del Mar’s three La Quinta tournament games last week, helping the Sea Kings to a second-place finish. Flint earned all-tournament honors and scored 23 points in the Sea Kings’ 36-33 semifinal victory over Esperanza. Flint also scored 22 points in Corona del Mar’s 75-42 loss to Glenn in the championship game. Flint is averaging 21 points, four assists and has made a team-leading 13 three-pointers this season. Flint, who is also an A-student, has received letters from Boise State and Northern Arizona, said her father, Corona del Mar Coach Garth Flint. Although she is only 5 feet 5, Flint scores most of her points on drives to the basket. “I don’t know how she gets the shot up inside with all those trees around,” her father said. Coach Flint attributes his daughter’s improvement to her work with Tom Marumoto, a local basketball tutor who has worked with Jeff Fryer, formerly of Loyola Marymount, and Cherokee Parks, currently at Duke, among others.
