Katie Collier a spark in All-American game

CollierMcDAA.jpgKatie Collier was a little bitter at the end of her McDonald’s All-American game in Chicago on Wednesday. The Seattle Christian star, who’s Washington’s first All-American recruit, thought her last aggressive defensive play was good for a jumpball not foul with the score tied and just 0.3 seconds on the clock.
It sent the East squad to the line, making one of two ensuing FTs, for a 79-78 win. Despite the despondent face at the outcome, Collier was otherwise all smiles during the game. Headlines and interviews circled around her battling acute promyelocytic leukemia. On the court starting for the West, Collier played as if the condition were a mere flu.
Her defense shined in the first half and she tied the score on big FTs with 16.4 seconds left in the game. Collier, a 6-foot-3 post who could replace Regina Rogers/Mackenzie Argens inside next season, had a record-tying five blocks. Sara Hammond (2011), Amber Henson (2011), Joslyn Tinkle (2009) and Amanda Thompson (2006) have achieved the feat in the past.
Collier hopes to be declared cancer-free next month. She joins guards Heather Corral (Prairie High) and Airashay Rogers (Hazen High, no relation) as first-year coach Kevin McGuff’s first recruiting class.
