When my sisters started playing intense AAU basketball in high school, my Dad came home after one of their practices wide-eyed. “There’s a girl on your sisters’ team that’s the REAL DEAL. She’s a year younger, but plays a year older.” I kept my eye on Owensboro Catholic’s all-star; look at her now. Tonight in a first round All A Classic Regional game against Whitesville Trinity, Becca Greenwell hit 17 3-pointers setting a NFHS High School record. She finished with 51 points in her team’s 99-35 victory.
The most impressive part? She was most concerned with beating her sister’s school record of 10 in a game. Greenwell suffered a torn ACL her Junior season, but is still just 3 points shy of 3,000 in her career.
