Caffey is running the show for a program that’s a yearly contender. She has a unique combination of scoring and playmaking. A great athlete in the open floor and a crafty finisher at the rim. Highly efficient, she was a 48% shooter from three last season. The junior brings a level of poise that propels this IWA team to dominant wins. She’s one of the best floor generals Dan Rolfes has coached.
Bjorn is a national blue chip prospect who met all the expectations coming into high school. She’s someone who touches every part of the stat sheet and impacts the game with elite length from the guard spot. A great downhill player who sees the entire floor and makes winning plays. Bjorn has a chance to break tons of records for her school and be one of the best to come out of Kansas City this decade.
Hurd is a no brainer for this list. The Waynesville native is a complete basketball player and has few weaknesses in her overall game. A candidate and possible favorite for Gatorade POY. Her ability to have double-double nights and impact as a defender makes her a top player in the Midwest. She can score with ease in transition and around the rim in halfcourt situations.
Puryear is a highly skilled forward who excels as an interior scorer and rebounder. She shot an efficient 57% last season and displays great footwork around the rim. She’s a mismatch problem and capable of having the offense run through her as a forward. A powerful forward who can do a little bit of everything on the floor. She’s going to have a huge senior season before attending Purdue next fall.
Porter is an elite, can’t miss talent. Her 34 points vs. Park Hill South last playoffs was a real turning point and established her as one of the best in the state at only 14 years old. She’s a great shot blocker and has scoring touch all around the floor. She’s a matchup nightmare and will make Rock Bridge a contender once again this season. Expect to see Porter on national lists moving forward. She’s the younger sister of Michael Porter Jr of the Denver Nuggets.
