    Actually Borton made two sweet sixteens bookending the final four appearance. In the first, they lost to Texas in Palo Alto where they had defeated Stanford in round two the previous week. And, of course, two years later, they lost in the sweet sixteen to eventual champion Baylor

    From what little I've seen of her, looks like she's basically another Bello?

    Unfortunately, Kaba isn't as good as Bello

    Not today, though, right? Thursday? And KSTC, not KSTP?

    They Lost out on Nia Coffey and Nia Hollie and they were able to get Leslie Knight and Liz Podominick

    Those are the only four from Hopkins I know that they offered to

    Bueckers was spectacular today in Hopkins' (narrow, possibly not entirely deserved) win over Eastview. Wow, is she impressive. Calm, not fantastic on defense but has active hands (she got crucial steals and a block), a steady rebounder and a great shooter who can shoot the three, drive to the basket, stop and pop (she had one drive through three defenders for an off-balance, circus, scoop shot at the rim that made me think she's stronger than her lanky frame would suggest). Scored 31 and I have not seen a box score but it seemed like she was shooting for a very high percentage. Forget the next three years of high school. The Gophers need her next year. There's another chance to watch her Friday as undefeated Hopkins takes on undefeated Elk River in the title game, on KSTC at

    This kid is the real deal. I have no doubt she will be a top 25 rated player by the time she is a senior. I could also see her easily being a Mcdonalds All-American.

    Yes, Beuckers is terrific. IMO, she's the best player in the state as a 9th grader. I also heard that Hopkins has a 7th grader who is already on the radar screen. I watched all of yesterday's games (on tv) and, although there are a lot of college quality players, Beuckers was the only one I saw who was major conference quality. Oberg, who is only a sophomore, is not a major conference DI player . Maybe she will be eventually, but she's not now.
