Breaking barriers, and more Pac-12 best

Cool high school story:

India isn’t a hot bed for girls and women’s basketball, but two California star players are breaking cultural barriers through their achievements.


University of Washington Coach Kevin McGuff coaches his team for both the present and the future.

The drive, with UCLA guard Rebekah Gardner.

By the way, I found some stats for the candidates for Pac-12 most improved player nominations:

Rebekah Gardner – 7.9 ppg, 3.3 rpg last year; 15.7 ppg this year

Chiney Ogwumike – 11.7 ppg and 8 rpg last year; 15.6 ppg and 10.6 rpg this year

Thea Lemberger – .6 ppg and .2 rpg last year; 15.6 ppg and 10.6 rpg this year

Gennifer Brandon – 7.2 ppg and 8.5 rpg in 09-10; 9.6 ppg and 10.9 rpg this year

Regina Rogers – 10 ppg and 5.4 rpg last year; 15.8 ppg and 8.1 rpg this year

Amanda Johnson – 15.9 ppg and 8.3 rpg last year; 19.7 ppg and 10.4 rpg this year

So statistically, the winner would have to be Gardner, Lemberger or Rogers. But who is truly carrying their team?
