Just 44 days until the first game!
These are the new faces we'll be seeing at Maples:
Alyson Beebe is a 6'3" forward from Santa Maria, California. Aly missed her high school senior year of basketball as she recovered from a torn ACL. She averaged 20.1 points and 12.5 rebounds as a junior and was named a prep All-America honorable mention after leading Saint Joseph High to a 29-6 overall record and the CIF Division III title. In the title-clinching contest, Aly scored a game-high 21 points.
We won't be seeing Aly on the court this season. She's rehabbing from surgery for a second ACL tear. I expect that she'll be kept busy on the sideline leading the high-fives for three-pointers.
Kiran Lakhian is a 5'10" shooting guard from Plano, Texas, just north of Dallas. Kiran was the tallest player on her West Plano High team and was listed as a forward. But she did a little bit of everything and was used at all five positions.
Tess Picknell is a 6'5" center from just north of the border — Medford, Oregon. Tess helped lead South Medford High to the quarterfinals of the Oregon 6A tournament last season and was named All-Oregon second team after averaging 13 points, nine rebounds and about five blocks per game. She blocked 13 shots in one game.
