PURDUE WOMENS BASKETBALL RECRUITING:
Recruiting Update: Pollack moves to the point

    Pollack moves into her natural position

    With the departure of Sharnee Zoll from the Marlboro (NJ) team, Purdue signee Brina Pollack moves from shooting guard to her natural position -- point guard. Last year she averaged 13.4 points, 3.5 assists and 4.3 steals per game playing in more of a shooters role. This year she will have a shot at running the offense for a team that still has three high-major Division I players in significant roles.

    Last year, Marlboro won their first Group IV championship and advanced to the NJSIAA Tournament of Champions final game, where they lost 48-45 to Shabazz.

    Westfield point guard getting national respect

    Junior point guard Takia Starks, a 5'8 high school teammate of Purdue signee Tyeisha Jackson, is getting some buzz nationally at her position. While the Houston Chronicle recently called her one of the top five point guards nationally, a Texas AAU coach that may be a little more objective confirms it would be hard to pick ten point guards better than Starks in her class. Then again, Curry may just want to ask Tyeisha what she thinks. Starks was named honorable mention all-american by Street & Smith, although she missed a majority of her sophomore year due to an ankle injury.

    One to watch

    Megan King of Fort Wayne Canterbury sits at No. 2 on the most recent IHSAA state scoring leader list with a 30.6 points per game average. The freshman already has a career high of 40 points, and also averages seven rebounds, three assists and five steals per game.

    If you attended any of the state championship games from 1999 to 2002, you have seen her sisters play. Fort Wayne Bishop Luers won a state record four straight championships during that period, featuring Megan's sisters Rachel and Michelle. Michelle is now on a volleyball scholarship at DePauw, while Rachel is playing basketball at the College of Charleston.

    Ramblings

    Marlboro High all-american forward Chakhia Cole on Brina Pollack's new point guard role this season ... "Brina's always been an amazing shooter. She's going to still do that plus she'll show what a great passer she is. She's going to be the person who holds this team together."

    Jeffersonville head coach Chad Gilbert on his star center, junior Samantha Johnson ... "It's hard to find a true 'five' player and she's a true five. There is no finesse about Sam's game."
