We witnessed women’s hoop history

Those of us who followed high school women's basketball closely over the past decade or so were treated to an exceptional wealth of talent. We got spoiled even. It may have peaked last year when eight signed with Division I colleges, bringing to 14 the number currently playing beyond high school.
