Flashy as a freshman, Janae Kent builds upon being ‘kind of everything’ for Oak Forest (Chicago Tribune, 2/24/2021)

Kent has been a major factor in every category and every victory for the Bengals (3-0). The 6-foot-1 guard is averaging 23.7 points, 13.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.3 steals

In Friday’s 54-37 win over Lemont, she had 27 points and 15 rebounds. She had 21 points and 14 rebounds in a 51-47 season-opening win over Reavis

“The way she is playing, it’s definitely not a surprise,” Bengals coach Jeff Kelly said. “Lemont and Reavis both have solid defenses, and she did a great job against both of them.

“If I’m surprised about anything, it’s that she’s doing so well in everything. But that’s just the growth of her leadership. She’s kind of everything for us. She’s a much more mature player.”
