Yeah, I've watched Gianna dozens of times over the years. The crazy thing is, she still has so much upside. Her length will help her shoot over players at the next level and she frequently nails NBA 3s, so she has great range. Her handles are crazy good and she is very productive in every category of the game, plus the D-side too - so she is a complete player. Oh and she is a 4.0 at an academically tough Duluth Marshall college prep school, which helps her with all the fast-twitch basketball decisions / gameIQ on the court: which translates into smart shot-selection and very minimal turn-overs. I think she would have blown past 4k points if not for last year & this year. G's big basketball-brain and relentless work ethic are going to serve her well - and she will do some big things out at Utah, I believe. This is one that got away, for sure.

"Gophers were interested in" (as in we recruited her heavily)? Or we were just "interested in"? I'm assuming Lindsay saw her play a few times. Yes it would suck if she has a successful college career and we let her get away.

Lets face it, if Kneepkens is an elite player (and she is) and she commits to UTAH, its probably safe to say there was some connection to this school for her that was probably a done deal before MN even hit the recruiting path.
