She has been selected The Times' girls' basketball player of the year after averaging 17.2 points and 6.9 assists in leading Windward to the Southern Section Open Division championship.

It actually makes sense a stadium nicknamed "The Billion Dollar Play Pen" should host college basketball's billion-dollar end games. It makes less sense that everyone except the players seems to be cashing in. This being Texas, of course, one host city was not enough to handle the event, as the NCAA granted this bid to the wide-open-spaces sweep of "North Texas.
