    That’s 16 years from now, so it’s not happening. Like I said, it’s just about being real. Whalen has benefited from Stollings recruiting, just like Stollings greatly benefited from Borton’s recruiting. It’s an obvious observation, not a controversial one.

    ...how their senior years went. Looking at the internet, but it seems everyone stops talking about them once they commit to a school.

    I know Ross has had some knee issues, Cumming has missed time too. It would nice to know a bit more about their senior stats. (Scalia obviously we have more info on.

    It seems to me that Whalen garners more media coverage and publicity when she goes to a local game to watch prospects than Stollings. Great for recruiting to be mentioned frequently in the media.

    Her next recruiting class will have more of her stamp. As she develops relationships, we hope that more high profile MN recruits opt to consider staying home.

    It may take a few recruiting cycles before we can possibly see the Gophers return to the final four if they recruit well.

    You could count the number of times Marlene showed up at a local game on one hand. It was Fred, then John, then the third assistant whose name escapes me at this moment, then Gail. That revolving door of assistants was part of the problem, obviously.

    Christ the King captures AA Diocesan Crown.

    In the final game of the day, Christ the King H.S., Middle Village, took down St. Francis Prep, Fresh Meadows, 52-34 in the Division ‘AA’ diocesan championship.

    ...

    “We just needed to push more in transition, and the shots that we took, we just had to keep shooting because they were definitely going to fall in the second half,” said senior center and team captain Klarke Sconiers, who also had a double-double with a game-high 19 pts. and 12 rebounds. “We kept the confidence and mentality that this was our game.”

    A quick 7-0 run by the Lady Royals to start the third quarter helped the team open the lead, and 14-2 run to start the fourth sealed the victory. Junior forward Mia Seemadray scored all seven of her points in the final frame. Junior guard MacKayla Scarlett led St. Francis Prep with 10 pts. and four rebounds.

    “Our defense was the best offense,” said head coach Bob Mackey. “We changed up the defense and got the tempo going. The game was too slow.”

    Jasmine Powell leads the way:

    Following a 63-35 win over Pontiac in the district opener on Monday, Country Day turned in another impressive effort on Wednesday night, cruising to a convincing 76-46 win over Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook-Kingswood in the district semifinal held at Pontiac Notre Dame Prep.

    With the win Country Day advances to the district final where the Yellowjackets will face Pontiac Notre Dame Prep, who defeated Wixom St. Catherine of Siena Academy in the first district semifinal of the day, on Friday night.

    ...

    Country Day (12-8) wasted little time getting things going on Wednesday night, jumping out to a more than comfortable 27-12 lead after one quarter behind 11 points from Jasmine Powell and 10 more from Adrian Folks.

    Powell, who finished with a game-high 25 points to lead the way for the Yellowjackets, said that it was Country Day’s defensive pressure, which led to transition offense that was the key for her team on Wednesday night.

    “I think the transition was key, getting steals and getting out in the open,” she said. “We tried to pressure them a little bit, that was in our scouting report that they couldn’t really handle pressure so that’s what we tried to do and tried to carry that out throughout the game.”

    Orlando also credited his team’s ability to get out in transition for his team’s success, but also praised his senior point guard and Minnesota signee as well.

    “It was the transition game with Jas (Powell), she gets out and runs and she can make any pass in the world,” he said. “She runs a pretty nice offense, if you’re open you’re going to get the ball, I don’t care where she’s at.”

    Cumming and Ross are on pretty terrible teams. I watched 1 of Ross's games this year and shes really good defensively, completely shut down Maryland commit Zoe Young. But offensively shes got a long ways to go. Its only a 1 game sample size so maybe it was just a bad night for her offensively but shes a big wing that can do a little of everything.

    Stillwater and Sara Scalia advance to State.

    But No. 1-seeded Stillwater (26-2) outscored the Bears 33-17 in the second half en route to a 61-47 victory in the Class 4A, Section 4 final Thursday at Hastings High School.

    The Ponies took a 31-30 lead in the first 1:30 played in the second half. Then senior guard Sara Scalia hit back-to-back three-pointers, and the Ponies never let the Bears regain the lead for the rest of the game. It will be Stillwater's first trip to the state tournament since 1988.

    "I just knew we had to step it up a little bit, and I started knocking down my shots," said Scalia, who led Stillwater with 26 points. Scalia was the first commitment of Lindsay Whalen's when she was named Gophers coach

    Jasmine Powell and Sara Scalia are looking like very solid gets for Lindsay Whalen.

    The Gophers landed a good floor general and an outside shooting threat.

    Klarke Sconiers scored a game-high 25 points and Natalija Marshall had 17, as Christ the King held off Monsignor Scanlan 77-72 in the CHSAA AA City Championship Game at St. Raymond High School in the Bronx on Wednesday night.

    The Lady Royals held a 35-32 lead at the half, but Scanlan opened the 3rd quarter on a 6-0 run, taking a 38-35 lead on Kateri Poole's driving layup with 4:30 to play in the quarter. Poole scored 10 of her team-high 22 points in the third, but Christ the King came right back, with Sconiers and Marshall combining for 21 of the Lady Royals' 42 second half points. The Lady Crusaders pulled within a point in the final minute, but Christ the King made their free throws down the stretch, with Sconiers (6) and Marshall (4) going a perfect 10 for 10 in the final frame.

    Christ the King played without Kaelynn Sattefield, who was sidelined with an injury. Satterfield was recently selected to play in the Jordan Brand Classic.

    Looks like Sconiers might be a good FT shooter. 6 of 6 in championship game. Gotta like that.
