Wanting to score is often the first thought for many high school basketball players but St. Joe's Deja Horn knows she needs to focus on defense first, according to High School Cube News.

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.”
