Aquinas up 65-42 late. Donarski with 20 points and 9 assists.
73-42 final. Donarski ends up with 23.
Ryan had 20 points, 5 assists, 5 rebounds, and 6 steals in 20 minutes of action.
They said Donarski had 23-9-9. I don't know if the second 9 is rebounds or steals. I know she had four steals that lead to run out baskets by her.
She seems to have long arms that she always holds out wide. Great anticipation. She had numerous deflections in addition to the steals. Pretty good defender.
Ryan's high school career is done.
Paragraph #2 sorta answers Paragraph #1. I know 1A is the smallest schools but are all of the scores that loopsided? Next year will be a HUGE adjustment for her.
Donarski's high school career is also over.
As BoxsterCy stated next year with be a huge adjustment for Ryan as well as it will for Donarski.
But while being the best players on their teams, they played with great teammates and were very well coached from what I saw. They just played with a higher intensity that their opponents - teams that made their respective state tournaments, so they were decent teams.
Donarski's team had a girl set the state tournament record with seven 3-pointers! And she has a teammate (Courtney Becker?) who was signed by Drake. And she has been injured so has not played the last few game (make a token 15 second appearance at the end of the game just to honor her).
Both Ryan and Donarski, from what I observed, are unselfish and good passers who find their open teammates. They are just good!
I remember watching Exira in a super sloppy low-level GBB championship several years ago wondering how Hallie Christofferson would adjust to real competition. She turned out fine.
You also need to remember that all of our recruits play AAU ball. It isn't Div I basketball, but it's a higher level than any of them see in regular high school ball.
Appreciate you posting the linkies. Hadn't watched any highlights before so seeing some game action was interesting. Was pretty impressed with Donarki for sure and less concerned about a class of 5-foot-something guards now. She bigger and has more "length" (sort of like Camber has "length") than I had pictured. Great looking class even if quite unbalanced.
Am I the only one who thinks Emily R looks like a young Lyndsey Medders?
True about Hallie and she wasn't a guard and guards have less transition issues. On the flip side, AAU is sort of all-star hoops with not that great of defense.
Other than Lexi, who I expect have lots of PG time, no one will need to play 30 minutes a game or carry the team or anything. We will have tons of guards.
Nice article here.

Another nice article on Ryan linked in the tweet below.
With McBride leaving, ISU has two scholarships open this year. But two of the three available for 2021 are already spoken for, so saving one or both of the remaining 2020 slots for 2021 could be useful.
Here's the updated chart.
