Current Player News

2-25-00...Carroll defeated Shanahan (19-5) in non-league play last Tuesday, 78-46. The night featured very balanced scoring on the part of Carroll. Ten players scored, the high being 14 points with the average output of 7 points per player. Cherrise finished with nine on the evening. Several tournament-bound teams have also held non-league scrimmages this week to prepare for the state tournament schedule that begins this weekend. Carroll received a first round bye in the tournament. Also this week, Cherrise Graham was named most valuable player of the Catholic League Southern Division. Next game: 2/25 vs. West Catholic in the quarterfinal round of the Catholic League playoffs.

02-23-00...The Patriots finished the Catholic League season with a perfect record, and a 19-3 record overall. Carroll's last regular season game was a 63-53 victory over Prendie. Graham saw some pine time due to foul trouble, but finished with 17. Carroll now awaits postseason play.

01-24-00...Archbishop Carroll moved into sole possession of first place in the Catholic League Southern Division with a 60-54 win over Archbishop Prendergast. Cherrise scored 18 in the win, moving Carroll to a 11-3 record overall, 5-0 in league play.

01-15-00...Cherrise returned to the court just in time on Saturday, back from a bout with the flu that cost her to miss much of two games last week. The opponent was New York's Christ the King, ranked No. 11 by the latest USA Today prep poll. Carroll defeated King 77-57, the first victory over King in seven years. Graham, who celebrated her 18th birthday on Saturday, finished with 24 points, including 19 in the second half and 10 in the fourth quarter.

01-10-00...Archbishop Carroll snapped a 20-20 halftime tie with a 20-5 third-quarter run in which Cherrise Graham scored nine of her 16 points, leading to a 56-31 win over St. Hubert.

12-29-99...Here's a link to the Philadelphia Daily News for another outstanding background article on Cherrise Graham. Among stories about being a young basketball phenom, it is also interesting to hear how Purdue was originally eliminated from her final five schools. A second call from the Purdue coaches got her to reconsider and visit campus, where she knew immediately it was the place for her.

12-05-99...Defense is a source of pride for Cherrise Graham, as seen in this Philidelphia Enquirer article (link may go inactive after 12/9).

11-13-99...Purdue has received the LOI from Cherrise Graham, officially making her a Boilermaker. "In my opinion, Cherrise Graham is the most versatile and athletic guard in the country," Curry says. "Her ability to play both the 1 and 2 positions equally well makes her special. I hate to compare players, but she is a clone of Ukari Figgs. She will be part of an outstanding backcourt throughout her career at Purdue." For comments on other Purdue signees, check out the Official Purdue basketball site for press releases from the Athletic Department.

09-28-99...In speaking with Cherrise Graham's mother Beverly today, she confirmed Cherrise had given Purdue a solid verbal commitment on Sunday. The Purdue staff didn't have to wave around their national championship to impress her either. "Purdue has good coaches," said Beverly Graham. "The had my daughter's interests in mind, especially the academics." As this article in the Journal and Courier illustrates, while Purdue was once close to being dropped because of distance away from home, getting players on campus and making them feel at home in Lafayette is something that can be done. Lots of good comments from Cherrise in that J&C article, too.

08-26-99...The Philadelphia Enquirer is reporting that Purdue is currently sitting at #2 on Cherrise Graham's list, behind the University of Virginia. Graham is a concensus top 10 player, and recently attended the Nike All-American Camp at IUPUI in July.
