County record by averaging 39.5 ppg during that stretch. In the two games she
averaged: 39.5 ppg, 10 rpg, 5 bpg, 4 apg, 2 spg; That came on the heels of

    OMG! Where did this come from? This must be purely a statistical thing because if you were at the games, I think you would have seen otherwise! I’m only speaking for the Panther girls on here! Just because you score the points don’t make you worthy. Meaning if you score for example 17 point but give up 29, statistically your a bust! I’d take that match up any day of the week! All players deserve there recognition and making list like this is great, but look at the total body of work and not just points!
    Not knocking anyone’s kid, just stating sometimes games are not won by points alone! Some of the points come against lesser (1st round) opponents, but against the tougher competition your measurements come up short!

    Mouthpiece, name ONE sports forum in any form of media (magazine, web based, TV, etc) that does NOT name the stats that are listed here. Where do they say this player had 30 points BUT he/she gave up 28 points to the player he/she was guarding so he/she actually only had 2 NET points?!?!?! My son is 3rd generation of Panthers so I am so proud of Coach Mac’s success in his 1st year as head coach. Lesser talented teams, key players with injuries, bad refs, etc are ALL part of this game. There is no asterisk for a young lady training and playing hard just because their competition is subpar. Unfortunately, while all players may RECEIVE recognition from their team and/or school, not all of them DESERVE recognition. Somehow “Jane Doe didn’t play one second of the game but she sulked on the bench better than anyone I’ve seen this year, even refusing to join the huddle during timeouts!” just doesn’t make me want to visit this site. However, Miranda Jenkins’ AVERAGING 39.5 points, 10 rebounds(!!!!), 5 blocks (defense!!!), 4 assits (getting other involved in scoring), 2 steals (more D!) is the type of information that makes the average sports fan visit. AND I get to learn about other young ladies who I may not5 have heard of doing well in the playoffs. We all know there are other intagibles that make a complete player. Other than watching EVERY player at EVERY game and practice, how would you report that? How could you see ALL games? Stats don’t say it all but they do say something.

    If I may ask, when you state lesser competition, whom are you refering too?

  • Mr. Robertson said,

    We live a statistical base society where it shows what was accomplished and what was not. Normally behind that data is a great deal amount of work involved and the results are many times a reflection of such work. In the sports arena there is also a certain amount of skill set that allows for such productivity. The worst part comes when either a parent, coach or relative try and lie to a kid and have them to believe that they are on that level when they are not. PJ Hairston of Dudley was on a different level no matter what some other parent on the team may have thought. Stop with the competition thing when some other kids totally out perform whom you may want it to be. Many of these kids play AAU ball all across the country against some of the best all Spring and Summer long. College coaches get to see them perform and decide to offer them a scholarship or not. Some are fortunate to have more than one offer. Some are offered early on. Rankings and catering to a specific organization, AAU team or Highschool team has no merit at all. If you she were some kids have raised their level of play, wouldn’t it make more sense to say “They must have put in a lot of hard skill work”. The basket and court are still the same height and length. The statistical report will eventually show you how much you really worked or thought you worked invidually. If a kid have some more remaining highschool years of basketball, now is the time to really go to work to improve. “True Facts will never lie”.
