We actually got a vote for the top 25 this past week. It is exciting to watch the girls play. They might even be better than last year. Our big girls are solid and Meagan Evans is tough at 6'3". The girls filling in are Courtney Wright( 6'0 but very strong) and Jillian Busch (6'3" and seasoned). Stephanine Stone has started slowly but has come on offensively in the past few games. Alex Mcguire is still tough as woodpecker lips. She takes the ball to the hole and plays stingy, physical defense. Jen Hansen has developed into a great floor leader and her 3-point shot helps when they choke down low. However, Cara Enright is still the main attraction. She gets a quiet twenty points every night and is double,triple teamed most nights. Somehow, at the end, her points are there. No fanfare, just hard work. Some of my favorite players are Anna Wilson-"tiny dancer" who bounces all over the floor, and Margaree King ("Red") who steps in like a brawler and amps up the tempo every time. Tiffany Taylor, a plebe, looks good at the post if not just a little raw and Jessie McCormack is a smaller version of Alex McGuire. Toss in the change ups of Erin Begonia who sees the floor like no one else, Sarah Anderson who can bang with any big girl in the league, and Joanne Carelus who gets solid minutes mostly as a defender and we have a pretty solid team with good depth.

Despite being dunked on by Ms. Parker & making the SportCenter's highlights, Margaree King leaves it all on the floor and is one of my favorite players.

3-0, Patroit League, 16-2 overall. Not too shabby My only concern is that we often play down to the level of our opponents for example, Lehigh had no business staying with us. Starting 5 are playing well. Maragree King and Courtney Wright are #6 and 7. Wright has become a beast on the boards.

I must admit, I haven't followed them as much as I should, but it is clear that they have build off of the foundation that Maggie established.

Tehy will beat tehm in the Star game. It is tough being the team that every one gets up for and plays their best against. We have to be on top every day.
