STEPH Cumming showed just why she’s the reigning league MVP with a sublime SEABL performance at the weekend.

The Kilsyth star sunk 36 points, dished out eight assists and grabbed seven rebounds as she led her side to a thrilling 84-77 overtime win over the Geelong Supercats.

The stunning result tips the undefeated Cobras record to 9-0 heading into the break.

Cobras coach Sam Woosnam said Cumming oozed class at Kilsyth Sports Centre.

“Steph was unbelievable, I haven’t seen her play like that in a little while,’’ she said.

“She put the team on her back and carried us. I looked at the stats at the end of the game and thought wow Steph had 36, she just got it done like she always does. Jas (Jasmine Gill 14 points, 13 rebounds) was still good, Rosie Moult played well when she needed to and everyone who hit the floor did a good job.”

At the other end, Sara Blicavs, in her second game back from a foot injury, put on a shooting display of her own hitting 29 for the Supercats.

The overtime victory was also significant because it was the remarkably Cobras first four-quarter performance of the season.

“It was close for the whole game, the momentum changed a lot and it was good because we stuck to our game plan and got it done,’’ Woosnam said.

“It was a really good step forward in our season because we were able to put four quarters together for the first time. Even when we weren’t shooting well in the first half we were playing defence, which is something we hadn’t done previously, so it was a really pleasing game.”
