Miss Basketball 2005
Grandville’s Allyssa DeHaan is Michigan’s Miss Basketball, the top senior in the state. The 6’8″ center averaged 25.6 points, 9.2 rebounds and 8.3 blocks this season. After tonight’s win (and 38 points, 11 rebounds from DeHaan) her team heads to the Class A state semifinals against Southfield-Lathrup this Friday at MSU.
Other area ladies in the top ten include Sireece Bass from Detroit Pershing, Laquisha Whitfield from Detroit King and Jareica Hughes from Southfield-Lathrup.
I’m not usually into high school sports, but hearing about the state tournament got me feeling a little nostalgic. Not that my team ever made it. But ah, glory days. They’ll pass you by.
