Whenever St. Joseph’s senior leading scorer Chanel Brown gets matched up with Deja Horn in practice, Brown knows it’s going to be a long day.
“She’s always guarding me,” Brown said with a laugh. “She makes me work so hard.”
Horn, a 5-foot-8 senior guard, has been named the team’s defensive player of the year in each of her first three varsity seasons. There’s a good chance she will make it a clean sweep this year.
“I think defense is all about wanting to be good at it,” Horn said. “I’ve always been a good defensive player since I started playing in fifth grade.”
