A Look Back at the 2010s

1. Cassie Rochel, Lakeville North, 6-4, post. Playing at Wisconsin.], where she averaged 4 points and 4 boards in 16 minutes as a sophomore.

2. Sari Noga, Parkers Prairie, 5-10, wing. A Minnesota Gopher, where she scored 4 ppg as a sophomore.

3. Suriya McGuire, Mpls. Roosevelt, 5-11, small forward-guard. Scored 3 points with 3 boards as a freshman, eligibility-wise, in 2011-2012 after redshirting her 1st year.

4. Megan Waytashek, Centennial, 6-0, small forward/guard. Scored 4 ppg as a freshman at South Dakota State, then suffered a knee injury and missed most of her second year.

5. Shakila Boler, Mpls. Roosevelt, 5-6, point guard. Rated as high as #1 or #2 in the state until a pair of knee injuries effectively ended her career.

6. Jade Geif, Lakeville South, 6-0, post-big forward. Led the Midshipmen with 11 ppg and 8 boards as a sophomore. Underrated.

7. Katrina Newman, Barnum, 5-11, wing. Was the NSIC's top newcomer as a freshman. As a sophomore, she led the UMD Bulldogs in scoring and rebounding with 14 and 8 per game.

8. Amanda Christianson, Alexandria, 6-0, guard. Scored 8 ppg for Northern Iowa, then transferred to Moorhead State where she scored 5 ppg in 8 games, then appears to have been dropped from the team. EDIT: Ah, finally, the story, thanks to Kevin Anderson: Christianson was injured in a pedestrian vs. car accident and has not recovered sufficiently, so her career may be over.
