    I can see her making real contributions. Not only does she shoot the three well, she penetrates and seems to thrive in the closing minutes of close games. As a senior, she also handled herself well in the tv interviews.

    Pretty cool read to see her parents both were ISU letter winners. Wonder if this is the first mother/daughter to play hoops for ISU?

    40 percent is not really that good for high school.

    It''s certainly not bad. I count only three players in all classes last season with over 90 attempts and better than 45%. 40% is pretty good. I'm more impressed with the consensus 1st team 3A all-state honors and 3A tournament captain award.

    She's a walk-on, so she's almost certainly not going to be much of an impact in actual games, but she does seem to be a pretty good player for a walk-on.

    This is really a nice pick-up. I saw her at the state tournament last year and thought she was really clutch.

    HS is a long way from the B12, but I would wager she'll contribute.

    She has a sister, Mallory, who just completed her eligibility at the University of North Dakota.
