PREP GIRLS' BASKETBALL PREVIEW: Five players to watch

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDDecember 7, 2013 

COURTNEY HOLLANDER

LYNDEN CHRISTIAN

Sr., Guard

Hollander, who averaged 9.4 pointer per game last season, is an effective and efficient scorer from the perimeter who creates opportunities for her teammates. She helped guide the Lyncs to a 20-7 record last year, and 10 times scored 15 or more points in a game.

LINSEY HONEYCUTT

FERNDALE

Jr., Post

Honeycutt's size and strength in the low post troubled many in the NWC last season en route to her averaging 13 points per game last year, including a season-high 28 against Ballard. Defensively, she was a key cog to the Golden Eagles posting a 19-4 record and a NWC conference title.

EMILY YOST

MOUNT BAKER

Jr., Post

Yost made a statement in Mount Baker's opening game of the season, scoring 39 points in the win over Meridian. The junior was a dominant scoring threat last year, averaging 13.4 points per game, and if the first game is any indication, Yost is well on her way to leading the Mountaineers to the postseason.

TAYLOR V'DOVEC

BLAINE

Jr., Post

The 5-foot-11 V'Dovec proved last year to be a double-double machine for the Borderites, averaging a team-high 12.6 points per game. Showed the ability to be physical in the low blocks and score with her back to the basket. With another year of seasoning, the junior looks to lead the Blaine team to another state tournament regional round berth.

MADDY BRYAN

SEHOME

Jr., Guard

With the loss of Rachel Albert, the Mariners are going to need someone to step up and provide a much-needed scoring threat. Bryan looks poised to take that roll after averaging 7.9 points per game last season for Sehome, and she showed the dribble-drive ability to create opportunities both for herself and her teammates.
