Give it a rest - It was a year ago.

Two last questions for you - why are you so bothered that Dunham wasn't Miss Basketball (isn't AP POY good enough) and why haven't you answered the question if you think Dunham was so good, how come she didn't win the Gatorade POY, the more prestigious of the three awards.

As for Zastrow, she made a name for her herself on the big stage two years ago and Monroe actually contributed to that. If Monroe had done things differently and beat Jefferson in the Sectional Final, Zastrow would not have gone to State and her current reputation might not have been as strong - but we will never know.

Bottom line, Radke was a great player, had a great Senior season, great tournament and was no less deserving of Miss Basketball than Dunham. I know if Dunham has won Miss Basketball, no one in Radke's camp would be whinning about it, especially a year later!!

Just let it go.

Gatorade POY, in my mind, is not the most prestigious of the three awards. Miss Basketball is voted on by a panel of basketball coaches who do a lot of research into all the candidates. The AP Player of the Year is picked by the press who between all newspapers see pretty much all the top players numerous times.

The Gatorade award is administered by a national magazine. If you look at their past winners, they seem to just pick the player going to the best division one school.

Danielle Ward in 2004? She was a 4th team all-state selection.

Michael Flowers in 2004? He had terrible senior year.

Most likely they make one phone call to some sort of media member in Wisconsin or just read the national recruiting sites to figure out who they are selecting. For instance this year the guy in charge of picking the girls POY for Wisconsin called me and asked me who I thought it should go to. Now, granted, I have confidence in my knowledge but why should a one person panel be basically picking an award?

readeal- I'll take Emily Gerber from Deforest on any team. I'm not saying the girl from Vincent is deserving but Gerber is the real deal. She is the best ball handler around is a true past first point guard and makes some of the most unbelievable passes and can score from anywhere on the floor. She is just like the Ra-lin D'alie that went to the Badgers this year.
Also to bring up "race" in any of this discussion should bar you from wis hoops for life IMO

hold on there, cowboy (boknows)

emily gerber is NO rae lin

not even close

you may have emily gerber on any team. but to displace any of the others for her is and was a huge mistake, IMO.

as for your position on "race", you know that goes on. for you to suggest i be barred "for life" from wishoops pretty much is a recognition that you know it goes on too, and don't want it discussed.

there are racial issues in our state, pure and simple. trying to hide them by barring people from the discussion is only going to make it worse; it isn't going to make it go away.
