Purdue among final three for Wilson

Wheeling (Ill.) junior Ashley Wilson has narrowed her list to Purdue, Marquette and Michigan State. The 6-foot forward plays on a high school team with a penchant for rebounding, and Wilson is one of their strongest players on the boards. Her toughness has built her reputation as one of the better forwards in the Chicago area, a rep she's been backing up this season coming off a stress fracture in a May tournament. Following a gradual increase in her playing time this season, Wilson is now averaging 18 points and 8 rebounds for 16-2 Wheeling. In the Deerfield game on Wednesday at the Warren Tournament, Wilson had 16 points, seven rebounds, seven steals and a blocked shot.

As a sophomore, Wilson averaged 16.5 points and eight rebounds for Wheeling (23-7). As s freshman, she averaged 10.3 points and 7.2 rebounds for a 28-4 squad.

One of the primary targets for Purdue in the Class of 2009, Wilson has not yet set a timeline for her decision.

Brittany surpasses 2K

Brittany Rayburn scored her 2,001st career point during the Bi-County Tournament on Friday in a 35-point performance. With at least 11 games remaining on the schedule at her current pace of 30 points per game, Rayburn is on track to finish in the top ten among the Indiana career scorers list. She is in reach of former Boiler Jennifer Jacoby at No. 7 (2,344 points) if Attica can put together a postseason run. Rayburn currently sits at No. 23, and will pass former Boilers Leslie Johnson (2,020), Jodi Howell (2,026) and Cindy Lamping (2,048) within the next couple games on her way to Jacoby's mark.

She also had eight rebounds and nine steals in the 61-33 win over Fountain Central on Friday.

Ben Davis downs Detroit Country Day

In a game featuring too many Division I players to count, Indiana Class 4A No. 2 Ben Davis defeated Michigan Class B No. 1 Detroit Country Day, 69-44. Purdue junior prospect Alexandria Bentley of Ben Davis had a game-high 27 points, while teammate and fellow Purdue sophomore prospect Dee Dee Williams had three points. For the Yellowjackets, Purdue prospects junior Sherena Taylor had six points and freshman Madison Williams was scoreless.

Ben Davis and Detroit Country Day came into the game ranked No. 21 and No. 22 respectively among the top 25 high school teams in the nation last week by USA Today.
