The McEachern girls basketball team is perfect at 15-0 and ranked as one of the best teams in the country. But the Lady Indians aren't relishing in the now; their sights are on something they fell just short of last year: a state championship.
"If we don’t win the main game … all this doesn’t mean as much," head coach Phyllis Arthur said at Thursday's practice.
McEachern is averaging 62.27 points per game, while their opponents average 39.8. The squad is led by four senior Division I recruits and six overall. They are:
- Senior Patches Roberts, 17.2 points per game (Syracuse)
- Senior Dominique Wilson, 15.3 ppg (University of Arkansas)
- Senior Destinie Gibbs, 8 ppg (Ole Miss)
- Senior Kayla Montgomery, 5 ppg (Clemson)
- Junior Mia Cooper, 5.7 ppg (verbal to the University of South Carolina)
- Freshman Te'a Cooper, 11.5 ppg (verbal to the University of North Carolina)
