I’d think if girls were taking bows to the head from a girl as strong as Stamper that they’d either be crying, bleeding or both. From what I can recall none of the Cooper girls showed any such signs. All the crying was coming from the fans on the Cooper sidelines. I guess when your offense is to let Held (who imo is the best player in the state) jack up 20+ shots a game your not going to draw many fouls. Onto the next topic.
This was my first time seeing the SK girls this season after seeing them a lot the last few years. My impressions are that Harmeyer has one of the prettiest jump shots I have ever seen.
Stamper is a bruiser that understands how to get position down low and how to use the different angles of the backboard to finish. It will be fun to follow her for two more years.
Jones is just a ballplayer, at her size she’s always finding new ways to surprise me. It will also be fun to follow her for two more years.
Niece isn’t close to 100% but it’s more of a mental thing, she’s still a calming influence on the court and makes the right basketball play everytime she gets the ball. The game comes so easy to her.
And lastly Buckner, after seeing her as a sophomore and junior I loved her athleticism and potential. During the Cooper game she looked like a shell of her former self, I was really expecting more. She seemed uninterested. I was excited to watch her play now that Meier has moved onto college, I thought she’d be filling the stat sheet. Maybe not so much with points but definitely with rebounds, blocked shots and steals. If she can play like I’ve seen her in the past this SK team now that they have everyone healthy could make a strong postseason run. 4 of their 5 starters are really strong, it would be nice to see Buckner get going and make that 5 out of 5.
