So your saying she is a major D1 player? She will be a 5 at the next level. You better go take a look at who plays the 5 for UCONN, Tenn, Stanford, Baylor, Michigan State, etc...

Another thing you need to look at is how successful they are at that school. Signing and going there is one thing, but once you are there if you arent successful it is just a one year and done thing.




Who were you replying to with this?


I would like to wish Nicole Griffin the best at OU.

Watch the video that is the starting 5 for Baylor this year.

So you were replying to me after I said she was likely the ranked the #1 player in the state because she was being recruited by better than mid-major programs unlike the rest of the kids in Wisconsin? What part of that isn't true?

I said nothing about how successful she was going to be or how I thought she was going to do.

But since you mention it? You're going to infer she can't play at a major D1 because she's not Brittney Griner who is probably the most highly anticipated female player since Candace Parker. If that's your measuring stick there isn't a 5 in the country that can play major D1. I've seen Griner many times in person ... thanks for the video though.

I'm well aware of who plays the 5 for those five schools you listed. I think it's funny you pick Michigan State; mostly because you're aware of Alyssa Dehaan. She's entering he senior season after putting up 10 and 6 numbers as a junior. Yeah she blocks a ton of shots but let's not pretend she's a dominant post player who's far superior to Nicole's potential.

The question was- Why is she the number one player in the state? I think being the most highly recruited player of the class is a pretty decent reason. Three state titles don't hurt either. And you're right; she's not as good as the #1 player in the country in the Class of 2009. Thanks for the education.



I remember a couple years ago a player from Wisconsin going to OU. Never played and then transfered and had to sit out a year. We will see how Nicole does. I wish her the best.

I am not comparing her to Grainer, just saying that is who she will have to guard while she is at OU. Ashley Gayle from Texas who is 6'4 played 13 min as a Freshman and was a McDonald's All American. Was the 3rd best post on her team!

All I am saying is she has her work cut out for her playing at OU in the Big Twelve. Look forward to watching her on t.v.

Might have been Viki Wohlers who attended Conserve School then ended up going to Oklahoma State. I think her dad was an Olympic Basketball player for the German national team...

He's actually referring to Kelly Lam from Brookfield East.

Wohlers went to Oregon State, and is currently at Alaska-Anchorage.

Do you have a link for that? That would be an interesting read. Cool that Wisconsin girls are getting noticed.

I dont have a link for this but Wisconsin Insider Invited the top 5 males and females basketball players in the state, and articles and photos will be published in Nov.

In no order

Alana Cesarz 2011
Katie Ellerson 2010
Samantha Logic 2011
Nicole Griffin 2010
Katie Raymond 2011

In the 2011 class I have not seen Raymond play, but Cesarz, and Logic are great players. I dont know the other 4 guys, but I know Blue from Madison Memorial was there.

The original blog was posted Oct. 7th, taken from the Sporting News magazine, College Basketball edition, on stands now.
The top 150 boys and girls high school players were ranked or listed.
Very nice to see six of our Wisconsin girls recognized!

I watched well over a hundred girls aau games this past summer and in my opinion here are the kids that are the best players in Wisconsin for the class of 2010. All have numerous D1 offers & will sign with these respective schools in November.
1) Angela Rodriguez/Oak Creek (UW-Milwaukee)
2) Kelsey Budd/Sauk Prairie (Bradley)
3) Nicole Griffin/Milw Vincent (Oklahoma)
4) Kimee Chandler/Pecatonica (UW-Milwaukee)

Watch-out for UWM - they likely will have the best back-court in the entire midwest starting next Fall. It would be kind of cool for them to come to UW & knock-off the Badgers.

I think your rankings are accurate, but as I look at these rankings you should put offensive rankings, there are more than a few girls on there there that play little defense. Even all state teams at the end of the year say offensive all-state team.
Katie Young is one of the most athletic and one of the best offensive players ib the state. Just observence

If South wants to play D-D, they should probably schedule it as an opening round game in their holiday tournament...

That's a good result for Falls, not so much for Waukesha South.

Would have expected a bigger win out of D-D.

Wasn't too impressed seeing Rodriguez. My guess is that GB didn't even look at her that much. Needs a consistent shot and a game that can operate on the left side of the court. Could develop into a pretty decent 1 at UWM if she knows when and when not to shoot.
Mike McCarthy is challenging the ruling on the field that he has 3 timeouts remaining.
