By Thomas Grant Jr.

Westwood High graduate Unique Drake stood out among her peers at the Women’s College All-Star Game in Cleveland, Ohio.

The St. John’s guard earned Most Valuable Player honors in leading Team Lieberman to a 95-
88 comeback victory over Team Miller. She scored 27 points on 12-21 shooting, had three
assists, three steals and two rebounds as her team rallied from 20 points down.

The event was making its return during Final Four weekend for the first time in 20 years.
In her fifth and final year with the program, Drake excelled as the team's primary scoring option.

She doubled her scoring average from 8.6 to 18.4 points per game.

Drake also ranked third in the Big East in scoring and finished with the highest scoring average by a Red Storm player since Danejah Grant in 2015-16. This in a season where she went from Big East Sixth Woman of the Year last year to first-time selection.

Drake finished her career with 4, 30-point plus games, including a career-high 37 points against Florida in the WBIT.
