The game was played at Hancock County High School and her effort has gotten plenty of attention. She was showcased on Yahoo Sports and USA Today. She also received congratulatory Tweets from Ashley Judd and Rex Chapman, a pretty fair scorer himself.

Thursday night, she'll lead the Aces into the finals against McLean County and stands just three points away from 3,000 for her career, despite missing her junior season with a knee injury.
