An interesting review of 2012 Class players who should mostly fill the voids in their teams as college freshmen.
Imo USC-committed Jordan Adams should also be added, considering the respectable number of xellent Trojans guards that will end their college career by 2012 (J. Gemelos, B. Gilbreath, A. Corral).
20 HS seniors, headed by 2011 USA Basketball Female Athlete of the Year Breanna Stewart, have been named to the 2012 WBCA (Women's Basketball Coaches Association) High School All-America game, to be played on March 31.
8 of the selected players (Jordan Adams, Bashaara Graves, Malina Howard, Alexis Jones, Jewell Loyd, Breanna Stewart, Imani Stafford and Morgan Tuck) were gold medalists with USA Basketball junior teams in 2010-11 and a ninth player, Moriah Jefferson, was a finalist for the 2011 U19 team.
The All-Americans list includes a Canadian player as well, Nirra Fields (Mater Dei), who also has got plenty of international experience in junior competitions.
2012 McDonald's All-America game teams named:
Stars filled rosters, opposing versatility and experience of East's Breanna Stewart to such talents like Moriah Jefferson and Alexis Jones (among others).
Another award for UConn recruit Breanna Stewart.
After being awarded the Morgan Wootten Player of the Year, she has won the Gatorade National Girls Basketball of the Year Trophy.
Super honored Breanna Stewart is keeping her fame.
In the state championship last weekend she first had a monster performance (42 pts + 23 reb) helping her team Cicero-North Syracuse to beat Ossining in the semifinals and then scored a triple double to win the final over Penfield (13 x points, rebs, blocks).
Another huge performance by UConn signee Breanna Stewart in the NY State Federation championship.
First she scored 42 points and grabbed 23 reb as her team Cicero North-Syracuse HS routed defending champ Nazareth 80-55 in the semifinals and today she collected 22 pts + 15 reb + 7 bs in an easy conquer of Murry Bergtraum (60-28) for the title game.
Breanna set a new record of 64 point and 38 rebounds in the two-game tournament.
Future Fighting Irish Jewell Loyd was named the MVP for her White team that beat Navy team 74-62 yesterday at the WBCA All-American game in Denver.
Loyd scored 18 pts (4on8 FG3), Jonquel Jones had 14 points and Breanna Stewart 10.
For the losing Navy team Canadian Nirra Fields was high with 14 pts, followed by Nicole Kornet (her team's MVP) with 12 and Alexis Jones with 11.
2011-12 HS All-American teams by MaxPreps:
Active recruiting campaign by Notre Dame. After signing 2012 class Jewell Loyd, the Fighting Irish got a commitment by juniors Taya Reimer, Lindsay Allen and Kristina Nelson who will join already verbally committed post Diamond Thompson.
Busy recrutiment days for North Carolina.
Three top 2013 players, Diamond DeShields, Stephanie Mavunga and Jessica Washigton all committed together the same day, adding to another verbal pledge by Allisha Gray. And the 2013 recruiting rally by UNC could even continue with #1 Mercedes Russell...
These are the last 2013 commitments, additional to other verbals from the same class (among them twin sisters Bria and Briana Day) and should join 2012 prospects forward Xylina McDaniel and sharpshooting Antoinette Bannister.
High School Player of the Year Breanna Stewart heads the 2012 GATORADE All-America team.
