Top Canadian Recruit Katherine Plouffe visiting Arizona State

Published

on

Katherine Plouffe, one of the top Canadian high school women’s basketball players, will visit Arizona State next week. The 6-foot-2 wing from  Edmonton also is considering Wisconsin-Green Bay and Marquette.

Pfouffe’s twin sister Michelle is going to Utah. Their older sister Andrea played for Washington.

As high school juniors, Katherine and Michelle were at the National Elite Development Academy in Ontario. When funding dried up for that program, they returned to Edmonton to Harry Ainlay High School
with their team going undefeated capped  by an 80-50 win in the Alberta 4A provincial final.

“They are the kind of players you might see once in your entire coaching career if that,” Corrie Yusypchuk, Ainlay elite athletics advisor, told the Edmonton Sun. “They are also wonderful people, mature, poised and unassuming.”

Yusypchuk believes the Plouffe twins eventually will play for Canada in the Olympics.

Canadian Theresa Jantzen from Medicine Hat, Alberta, was on the Pac-10 all-freshman team in 1999 and led ASU in scoring in ’99 and 2000. She married and finished her career at Oklahoma.

ASU’s incoming signees are guards Adrianne Thomas of Fontana, Calif., and Olivia Major of Central Arizona College.

The Sun Devils will play at Tennessee next season in return for the Lady Vols’ November 2006 appearance at Wells Fargo Arena. The return game was postponed until after Sybil Dosty, who started at Tennessee and transferred to ASU, finished her career.

Tennessee was a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament but lost to Baylor in a Sweet 16 game to finish 32-3.

Canadian Asketball Freshman Lindell Wigginton Dunk Year Oklahoma Sooners

Canadian Guard Lindell Wigginton (Dartmouth, Nova Scotia) has had an impressive freshman season to say the least. The Iowa State Guard capped off what should be is lone campaign in “BIG 12″ regular season action with a polarizing dunk of the year candidate that has flipped the internet upside down. At only 6’2” tall Wigginton is well known for his natural ability to put defenders on posters and has again defied gravity with this massive, dunk against the Oklahoma Sooners.

Wigginton averaged a team-high 16.5 points per game as well as 3.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists on his way to becoming the first Iowa State rookie to score 300 points in conference play.
