Fresh off signing her letter of intent to play for Marquette women's basketball, King withstood a physical defense to lead her team to a 69-38 victory.
Just gonna throw this out there: If you're knocking down the other team's best player to the point where she rips her leggings in the course of losing by 30, you're a bad team and a bad coach.
Here's the important part of the official description:
"It's been a minute since our last pod so we catch up on the most important news, like Greg Elliott being out for 8-12 weeks and Big East media day. We then jump into our annual schedule review shenanigans where at least one of us tries to find a way MU will go undefeated. Bit of a spoiler, for once both of us are bullish on the Marquette schedule results. We wrap up the pod with a new "game" inspired by 10 Things I Hate About You, which players will leave us underwhelmed, overwhelmed, and just plain whelmed."
Go read the rundown on the year from our favorite independent New York based blog. You know you want to know what Jaden thinks about Marquette. Go. Go now. What are you waiting for?
There are two Golden Eagles amongst the 15 best players in the league here, but I'll let you click and find out which two and in which order......
The Free Press did a write-up on Cain since he's one of the six finalists for Michigan's Mr. Basketball award. The focus here is how the 6'7", 175 lb. Cain has improved on defense under Cornerstone head coach Derrick Edwards.
The recap is focused on Whitewater's opponent instead of the Whippets, but we still learn that the future Golden Eagle led all scorers with 17 points in Whitewater's 63-43 win over Lake Mills.
According to his 247 Sports page, Elliott is a 6'3", 165 lb. guard from Michigan. He doesn't have a star rating or a state/national rankings according to them, for whatever that's worth.
Marquette has three unassigned scholarships for the fall of 2017.
I don't know if you guys know this or not, but Haanif Cheatham is pretty good at basketball.
Here's the league office's writeup on his weekly honor:
"Averaged 18.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists in a 2-0 week. Shot 63.6 percent from the field and 50.0 percent from the 3-point line."
That's what happens when you hit two big three pointers to propel your team to a victory. Here's the Big East's writeup on Marquette's lone senior:
"Yentz led the Golden Eagles to a 62-52 win over New Mexico on Wednesday by scoring 16 points and grabbing four rebounds in 26 minutes of action."
The senior led the Whippets with a 21 point and 14 rebound performance in their blowout victory over Jefferson last week Tuesday. She also had three assists and a blocked shot, and that sounds like an awful lot of fun to watch.
