UPSSA basketball thoughts

March 30, 2013 - Burt Angeli
Notes from the 23-member U.P. Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association basketball meeting in Marquette:

Nobody from this area, but one coach was referred to as a “jerk.” No explanation was given for the comment ...

Kingford’s Carlee Benzie was a unanimous choice for the Class ABC girls basketball first team ...

West Iron County’s Kylee Erickson finished her career with 965 points ...

One member’s assessment of a player: “Sometimes he’s plays like he’s All-U.P, some times like Class EE at the Gold Medal in Hermansville.” ...

Valerie Rajala of L’Anse overcame a knee injury and flu bug to earn All-U.P. second team ...

With the girls Dream Team dominated by juniors, look for seniors named to the first and second teams along with special mentions considered for the U.P. All-Star Game in St. Ignace ...

“Dream Team” pick Sarah Culip of St. Ignace will run cross country at Grand Valley State ...

Chassell’s Jamie Dompier, all of five-foot-one, averaged 9.5 rebounds per game ...

Nicole Bouwma, a 6-foot- junior from DeTour, has enough credits to graduate and will apparently do so in the spring ...

St. Ignace’s Emily Hinsman and Abbey Ostman live in Mackinaw City ...

One U.P. conference has one of our media members make the all-conference selections. He talks to the coaches for input and names the teams from that information ...

Houghton’s Elisa Jurmu (27) and Marquette’s Hunter Viitala (30), both “Dream Team” picks, scored season highs against Kingsford this season ...

Ironwood’s Adam Mackey committed just 30 fouls in 21 games this season ...

Mid Peninsula’s Brett Branstrom grabbed 33 rebounds in one game this season ...

Injury report from one U.P. sector: “Ankle injuries spread like swine flu.” ...
