PURDUE WOMENS BASKETBALL RECRUITING:
McDonald's All-American Game Notes

    Katie's assists

    Two of Katie Gearlds' four assists were to her future Purdue teammate Erin Lawless, while two were to Vanderbilt-bound Jennifer Hall.

    Scoring productivity

    While Katie Gearlds was the top scorer on the floor during the McDonalds All-American Game, it was Erin Lawless (1.147 points of offense per minute played) who turned out to be the most productive. Gearlds (1.141) was a close second, followed by West teammates Liz Podominick (.951) and Noelle Quinn (.907). East guard Ivory Latta (.786) rounded out the top five.

    Below is the breakdown of scoring productivity for each player on each team. A players productivity is measured by adding their scoring total to the value of each assist they contribute. That number is then divided by the number of minutes played. Each assist on the West team a value of 2.31 points, which is found by taking the total points scored in the game (minus points from the line) and dividing that by the number of made shots from the field in the game. Each assist on the East team adds a value of 2.25 points. The resulting number measures total offense (in points) per minute.

    23. (E) Jennifer Harris (.154)

    Jordan a no-show

    Noticably absent from the game was Peoria, Ill. point guard Britney Jordan. Jordan was on the roster, but cancelled due to "personal reasons". She would have added to an already loaded West squad, likely reducing Katie Gearlds' ballhandling duties.

    Telling stat

    A couple stats really stand out from the game, like the 12-2 advantage in blocked shots by the East team, or the 63-41 rebounding advantage by the West team. But what turned out to be a difference-maker was the West's hot touch from the perimeter, and the East's rather cold day from the arc. The West made 11-of-21 shots (.524) from the perimeter, compared to the East's 6-of-23 (.261). Even out the perimeter shooting percentages, and you have a two point game.
