Mavunga passes her coach with a record-breaking performance

BROWNSBURG — In the past four years, there have been a lot of highlights for the girl Brownsburg coach Amy Brauman calls “the greatest player that’s come through Brownsburg High School.”

In Wednesday night’s 78-51 victory against Plainfield, senior Stephanie Mavunga had the brightest night of her Bulldog career.

The North Carolina-bound forward set a new school record by scoring 44 points, passing coach Brauman’s record of 41 points set in 1991.

“Words can’t even explain it,” said Mavunga, who also had 19 rebounds and six blocked shots. “I’m just really excited and blessed to have some of the best teammates, I feel like, in the nation.”

Brauman’s high praise of Mavunga carries extra weight as she herself was an Indiana All-Star and one of the best players in Bulldog history.

“It is a big accomplishment, she’s a great player,” Brauman said. “I thought tonight she really got in the game with a lot of low post moves to get her going. I thought she ran the floor well and that we did a really nice job of getting her the ball.”

Brauman joked with Mavunga that she would pull her out when she got to 40, one point short of Brauman’s record. Mavunga took a seat on the bench in the third quarter when she found out that she was close to the record.

“I realized ‘wow, I’m this close,’” Mavunga said. “Then (Brauman) brought me back in and I really do appreciate that.”

The record-setting points came on a lay-up where Mavunga made the shot and was fouled at 2:45 remaining in the game. She celebrated with a subtle fist pump as the Brownsburg bench erupted in celebration. Mavunga made the free throw and exited the game immediately to a loud ovation and high fives from her coaches and teammates.
