The honors keep piling up for Mount Rainier senior Brittany McPhee. And they keep getting bigger, too.

Only 20 seniors from across the country made the…More

The easy part about putting together all-state teams at this point is that there are tons of great candidates to choose from.
And that’s the hard part, too. There are so many really good players to choose from. Even deciding where to draw the line, between the first and seconds, is agonzing.
When all is said and done, the final all-state selections will be based on the way each player performed. Kids can definitely play their way into — or out of — the top-10.
And the good news is that we ulimately pick 11 girls, including the Player Of The Year (plus five on first team and five on second). Not sure when or why we started that because The Times traditionally sticks with teams you can put on the court (our Star Times teams will include only five girls and five boys from our coverage area).More
As a kid, Brittany McPhee dreamed of playing basketball for Stanford, which features one of the best women’s programs in the country.
That dream is closer to reality now that McPhee made an oral commitment to the Cardinal earlier this month.
“That was definitely kind of the goal when I was little,” said McPhee, Washington’s two-time Gatorade Player of the Year who will be a senior at Mount Rainier this fall.. “I was like, ‘Oh, I’ll go to Stanford. But in the back of my mind, I never really thought it was actually possible or it was actually going to happen, so it’s really cool to actually be able to go there.”
McPhee, a 6-foot forward with a 4.0 GPA, averaged 27.0 points and 12.3 rebounds last season while leading the Rams to the 4A state semifinals for the second year in a row. She also put together three or more blocks, assists and steals per game.
She said she chose Stanford over Gonzaga, Washington and Nebraska.More

I think Stephenie Wheeler-Smith put it best: Wow!
The Cleveland girls basketball coach said it a few times describing the efforts of her players.
It’s a fitting way to sum up the Class 4A and 3A state girls basketball tournaments last Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Tacoma Dome.
Wow! Wow! And Wow!
I thought I’d take one last look back….
I picked Mead to win the tournament, and it turns out I was right – even though I had Mount Rainier ranked No. 1 all season. And I would have loved to have seen the Rams – or one of the other Seattle-area teams – finish on top.
Nothing against teams from the other side of the state, or down South. It’s just always nice when the winner is within our circulation area! And it doesn’t happen as often as we’d like. Since Federal Way won in 1997 (and Kent-Meridian the year before that), we’ve had just four local winners in 4A – Roosevelt (2004), Garfield (2005), Kentwood (2009) and Auburn Riverside (2010).
