Hopkins vs Minnetonka - 3/14/17 - State Playoffs

Bueckers makes the game look way too easy even as a freshman. Driving layups, floaters, backdoor cuts, a couple highlight-reel passes; IOW the usual.

Paige finished with 31 points (12-17 FG), 5 rebounds, 5 assists

Hopkins vs Eden Prairie - 2/23/17

Paige put on a show during this game during her freshman season. She missed a bunch of free throws and sat out the last 8+ minutes of the game yet still put up 25 points. But you have to watch to see the pure dominance on display. Besides a few ridiculous assists she hit a driving, Jordanesque scoop shot where she changed hands and flipped the ball about two feet above the hoop around 38:30 in.

I am reminded of piano tryouts for my grammar school band. Several students played pretty well for 12-14 year olds. Then this girl sat down and played like Liberace. She was so much more advanced than the rest that the tryouts were over. I've seen lots of guards put on displays of moves that boggle the mind and then, because they were so fully extended they couldn't even hit the rim with their shot. It looks like they spent all their practice time perfecting the move and none in making the shot. Bueckers is always in control. Her moves on drives are dazzling and then her shot is soft with a perfect arc, not the wild shots put up so often, even at the WNBA level. She makes the shots

UConn fans are very lucky to be able to watch her in the coming years.

Paige getting emotional at end when she tweeked her ankle? :eek:
Yup. Some frustration with the drill and then the pain; but she soldiered on. Note that both of them were clanking a lot of iron.

Good. Getting her prepped for Geno's impossible (7 on 5) drills.

There is a difference between making shots when you are rested as opposed to when you are exhausted from a workout. I doubt they are going to face defenders as good as that trainer.

Notice how up in their grill he was? And they have to start in that position, so yeah it is tough and you are probably right that it is the end of a tiring season. But there is something artificial about it the way they start and passing to a team mate is not an option. So much of the personal trainer stuff is of marginal utility other than some conditioning. Geno is not keen on the utility of trainers.

Hopkins vs Chaska - Dec 27, 2019

An early senior season game for Paige Bueckers who showed off her post-up game multiple times. Also watch for the change-of-direction move resulting in a scoop layup in the second half.

Paige ended up with 28 points on 11-19 from the field and 6-7 from the line.

Hopkins demolishes Robbinsdale Armstrong - Jan 12, 2018

Sophomore Paige only plays about 10-12 minutes in this one; ends up with 18 points on 8-8 shooting, 8 assists, 4 rebounds, 3 steals

At one point in the second half she hits a floater near the foul line and the PBP guy says, God she's good!

After listening to the PBP guy I had to check on the NE-Tenn game. The PBP guy had NE and they got beat 34-10. Ouch.

On YouTube this PM looking at other stuff I spotted the Hopkins v Wayzata Sectional Final game and what caught my eye was that it had been viewed 168,000 times. Pretty wild that.

Paige reminds me of Gretzky the more I see her. She exits for good at the 35:30 mark.


Lake Conference home opener: Edina at Hopkins Girls Basketball on January 7, 2020


It was the 13th game of 2020 season, but the first Lake Conference game of the year. Hopkins would win 82-27....Paige Bueckers, in just 18 minutes of court time, scored 22 with 8 assists and 8 steals.
