Queen Bees

Queen Bees

Cassie Broadhead, BYU Basketball:

1024x1024Cassie is the lassie of Provo. She averages a team high 17.1 points per game and also leads the team in blocks with 13 swats this season. She is tied for second in rebounds (52), second in assists (53) and tied for second with 26 steals for the Lady Cougars. Maybe one day she will lead a team in every statistical category like NBA superstar Lebron James did in the Finals last June. He may be King James but Cassie is the Queen Bee of the South.

Rachel Brewster, Utah State Basketball:

12163549Rachel is the Queen Bee of the north as she has led the Lady Aggies up in Logan with a 12.3 point per game average. Her 80% free throw shooting percentage paid off when the Aggies needed her against Air Force on New Years Eve. She drained two from the charity stripe to give the Aggies their first lead in 10 minutes. The Aggies would hold on to win 65-62. Utah State is now 8-5 in the season and 1-1 in the conference. Rachel will need to continue to play at a high level if Utah State is going to make some noise in the Mountain West Conference Tournament in March.

Dani Barton, Brighton High School:

1779551The only prep to be featured in the Queen Bee section is high school volleyball and basketball phenom Dani Barton. She may only be a princess bee right now but she will be crowned a Queen Ute when she plays volleyball in the state capital this fall. This six foot senior can touch the rim in basketball so volleyball fans can expect to see high rising spikes from the Lady Pogo-stick. Move over Jeremy Evans.
