UNCASVILLE — Shailyn Pinkney has won the CCC MVP, 2021 Gatorade Player of the Yr and GameTimeCT MVP but what she truly desired was a point out championship to rejoice with her East Hartford teammates.

Now, she has that much too as Pinkney scored 26 points major the 2nd-seeded Hornets to the CIAC Class LL championship 54-33 over No. 12 Wilton.

“That’s much better than just about anything, to be trustworthy,” Pinkney said. “We created background at our school and that was my aim when I arrived to East Hartford Substantial University. We obtained it performed.”

This is the initial point out title for East Hartford.

With the rating tied 25-25, Pinkney and the Hornets used a 21-3 operate spanning the third and fourth quarters to pull absent from the Warriors, spurred on by 11 points by Pinkney.

Pinkney, a Seton Corridor commit, sent the locker place speech at halftime which lit a hearth below her teammates.

“I was disappointed. I stated ‘girls, we simply cannot be playing all-around, we have to wake up,’” Pinkney mentioned. “I was fired up (in the 2nd 50 %) When all those 3s went in, I was hyped for it.”


East Hartford, the CCC champions ranked No. 4 in the GameTimeCT poll, led 42-26 following a few, outscoring Wilton 20-4 in the 3rd.

Wilton, the No. 12 seed which upset No. 4 Ludlowe and No. 1 Enfield to get to the finals, could not match Pinkney in the 2nd fifty percent.

“They performed their hearts out and gave us all the things they had,” Wilton mentor Keishaun Macklin mentioned. “Hats off to East Hartford, they received a few of studs more than there. They performed well. We hung with them in the initial 50 % but it was a recreation of runs and they built a major just one in the 3rd quarter.”

Wilton was led by 16 details from sophomore Ashleigh Masterson.
