Hopkins plays again on Saturday. Here is their opponent's head coach prior to the game:
On top of the Royals being one of the best teams in the nation — Donarski also joked his team was ranked around 115 or 170 — but also has the top college recruit of the 2020 class in 5-foot-10 point guard Paige Bueckers.
“When we I say No. 1, she is everything she’s billed out to be,” Donarski said.
"She’s Diana Taurasi good, truthfully,” he continued of the WNBA’s all-time leading scorer. “Notre Dame and UConn are all over her, so she’s got the greatest programs in the country that want her."
if I'm not mistaken UConn was not listed as having interest in Clark in that recent story about her......it certainly can't be about her talent so I assume either they know she is going elsewhere or they are satisfied with their other choices.......she's going to be a force for somebody.

I was thinking Sue Bird in terms of her ability to manage a game and shoot the basketball. Many people forget that she was the starting PG for USA basketball U16 in the summer of 2017 and did not make the team to retain her position in 2018 due to a hand injury. In 2018 her starting PG spot then went to Azzi.
Madison Scott for McNamara is a LONG 2020. She guards Fudd as well as anyone I’ve seen and she is 6’2”. Unfortunately for McNamara, Azzi took advantage of her sitting on the bench with a tweaked ankle.
Speaking of which, here is a local piece mentioning her from the other day.
One of the biggest pieces to the Trojans this year that was missing in 2018 postseason is the play of freshman Shay Bollin.
Her presence in the middle as well as her ability to knocked down shots from the outside makes B-R hard to defend. Bollin leads the Trojans in scoring, rebounds, shooting percentage, three-point shooting percentage and block shots.
“Shay [Bollin] has made a huge difference,” said senior guard Kaleigh Matulonis, who is the second leading scorer at 8.9 points per game. “I think everything we built last year, she was our missing piece.”
Younger sister Kenzie Matulonis agreed with Kaleigh.
“It’s nice because she is such a versatile player,” Kenzie Matulonis said. “We can have her at any position on the floor and get her the ball. We have a big (center) now. We were pretty short last year so now we have someone over 6 feet.”
