The gate is wide open for younger players to pile into all-Frontier League honors for 2024. Of the ten players earning first and second team honors following the 2023 season only two return. Both are from the second team. Half of the eight honorable mention recipients are gone as well. All told, only six of the eighteen all-league selections return. Five are seniors this season. Who is going to fill the void? Below are some picks of mine.
, 5’9″, PG, Spring Hill, 2025 – Catching Bod against Louisburg last February it did not take me long to be sold. She showed speed and really good handles. What I really liked was her strong use of bounce entry passes into the block post-up.
, 6’0″, SF/PF, Spring Hill, 2025 – Buscher followed up honorable mention honors in 2022 with a second team selection last season. Averaging 9.7 points per game and a double-double in 2022 she is a prime candidate to receive a first team nod. Buscher is active, quick on her feet, and has solid hands. All are good qualities to have to be a good rebounder and score around the basket. She also good size and transition speed.
, 5’8″, SF, Bonner Springs, 2024 – Hassett worked her way into logging varsity minutes late last season and took advantage of the opportunity. A tough, athletic player who can transition and finish with speed Hassett is also a threat from three point land.
, 5’9″, SG, Spring Hill, 2026 – With heavy graduation at the guard spots Herman will step into one of those spots easily. A high potential player, she brings size and length to the position. A shooter who needs to shave off wasted movement on shot, Herman can hit the three with range and use her athleticism and hops to be a problem on the glass. Recently she was a I=35 Showcase standout at the Kansas City event.
, 5’9″, SF, Bonner Springs, 2024 – With the log of talent ahead of her cleared out Leslie can be banked on to improve upon her two-time honorable selection honors. Leslie has put in the work over past summers to become a multi-faceted scoring threat. A very athletic player with an average to slender build with long arms Leslie works real weel in transition. Off the teal, outlet, or rebound she uses her handles and vision to decided on shots and who to dish too. With a terrific crossover and 27′ range Leslie will create her own shot. Off the bounce she will finish with either hand and use a couple moves to get off a short- to mid-range jumpers shot off the bounce, Love, love her soft, quick dime dropping out of nowhere too.
, 5’3″, PG, Baldwin, 2026 – Gotta love a young point guard with a solid assists-to-turnovers ratio (1.77). My colleague Adrian Maloney describes her as someone who can guard anyone who steps on the court. Full court, half court, and in the zone she is always active. With quick feet and hands and a high IQ to beat ball handlers to the spot she is super sticky.
, 5’7″, CG, Ottawa, 2024 – A returning second team selection Nichols is another sure pick to receive all-league honors. Last season her game matured from what I had seen in the past. She always had good dexterity and quick feet. Last season she showed how active and physical she can be. She also showed of a fairly swift release on her perimeter shot. Watch out for her scoring ability in the lane.
, 5’9″, SF, Ottawa, 2024 – Richards is an active player with good length. She also has good speed and a fairly quick release on her three point shot. What really grabs me is she has headiness as to where to pass the ball in transition and the half court. Next level thinking.
, Tonganoxie, 2026 – While her shot movement is a bit too slow Schoeneck is quick and has a good ability to locate and spot up. She is as good of a three point shooter as there is in the league, able to hit them from a variety of spots. Schoeneck also shows quickness on the transition attack with athletic finishing ability.
, Eudora, 5’10”, PF, Eudora, 2024 – Yoder is returning honorable mention selection Yoder who brings legitimate a power forward frame, strength, quickness and solid speed to the table. She is very active and physical on the glass and when, going after lose balls. Yoder will go coast-to-coast with the basketball and finishes through contact with either hand
