    Harris the No. 5 2005 story

    The Indianapolis Star released the top 10 sports stories of 2005, and the 6'5 phenom from North Central, Amber Harris, ranked as the year's fifth best storyline. The Star said, "As impressive as [Greg] Oden has been, there are players -- from Patrick Ewing to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar -- to compare him to; it's almost impossible to come up with a player who matches Harris' skills on the women's side."

    Just ahead of Harris at No. 4 is the championship run of North Central high school last season. After limping into the tournament with a 13-7 record, North Central ran away with their second straight state championship.

    Daugherty hits 1,000

    Ohio junior Kristin Daugherty scored her 1,000th career point last week in a 56-18 win over Tri-Valley. She currently stands at 1,019 points, and is averaging 19.7 points per game so far this season. At that pace, by the end of the regular season she will have surpassed her mother's career mark at River View of 1,228 points. Her mother, formerly Caroline Mast, ranks third on the career scoring list. Number two is Rhonda Hardesty with 1,362 points, and at the top is Hannah Kanuckel with 1,547 points.

    Daugherty profile now available

    We have just finished the player profile for Kristin Daugherty and it is now available for viewing. Included is a link to an interesting video profiling her for volleyball, plus a few additional photos. Anyone with access to season stats for the 2003-04 and 2004-05 season, please email them to me via the link at the top of the page that says "CONTACT". And a callout to fans in eastern Ohio -- we would love to hear some scouting reports, and have incuded her season schedule.

    Campus visitors

    Purdue received unofficial visits from two of the top guards in the Indiana Class of 2008 for the Sunday Ohio State game. Attica's Brittany Rayburn and Lebanon's Maggie Boyer were in the house along with former Boiler, now WNBA star, Katie Douglas.

    Ramblings

    "We've known about Maggie since she was in the third grade. She just plays like a guy. She has that ability, that knack, that love for the game. You can tell she's watched a ton of basketball and knows how to play the game." -- Lebanon head coach Tracey Hammel on Lebanon sophomore Maggie Boyer.

    "Older guys ... they don't care. They'll push you, do whatever. It toughened me up." -- Maggie Boyer on being 'one of the guys'.
