Purdue high on Ohio center

Purdue continues to target Ohio's top players, and has developed a high degree of interest in Sandusky Perkins center Cierra Bravard. The 6'4 junior is averaging 21.5 points per game. On Saturday against Sandusky St. Mary, Bravard set a school scoring record with a 41-point performance on 16-of-21 from the field and 9-of-11 from the line. She also added nine boards and three blocked shots. Perkins' record stands at 11-3.

Bravard was named Division II all-state first team as a sophomore, averaging 22.2 points per game. Bravard seems to have the right combination of strength and touch to be very successful on the next level, her range extends to the perimeter, and is physical enough to get to the line frequently where she hits 80-percent of her freethrows.

Along with Bravard, Purdue appears to be equally high on Ohio sophomores 6'0 Alexis Rogers of Lakota West and 6'2 Emilee Harmon of Pickerington.

IHSAA Statistics

Brebeuf has begun reporting stats, evident from the appearance of Ta'Shia Phillips on the IHSAA state leader board. Phillips currently is averaging 20.3 points per game (16th in the state among reporting schools), 14.7 rebounds (2nd in the state), 2.6 blocks (10th in the state), and despite seeing frequent double and triple teams, is shooting a state leading 76.9-percent from the field.

Rayburn remains third in the state in scoring (26.1) and 21st in the state in blocked shots per game (2.1). According to recent statistics reported by the Lafayette Journal and Courier, Rayburn is also averaging 8.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 3.4 steals, while hitting 73.8-percent of her freethrows.
