roster update and clarifications

Roster update
Minneapolis North: add Vanissa Ford, f, 5-11, 06, 3.3 ppg, 0/0

Looking at page 9 in the the College Data book I break down the states by high school classification. The importance of this page is in the last column--the "What a HS point is worth in College. However there is no explanation what the columns mean. It should be read like this:
High school classification/Rostered #/Starters/All Conference/What a point is worth
and so on

China Threatt

If you look at my rankings in Michigan you may notice that China Threatt is not listed. This is because she had a knee injury last season and did not have the numbers to give a true rating. This season her team Auburn Hills Avondale is the number one team in the state at Class A (the highest level in Michigan). They are 15-0. China Threatt is a 5-9, pg, class of 06. She is scoring 15 ppg. She has committed verbally to DePaul.

My new publications are ready to ship now. But this year I will be posting updates on this blog about what is happening--the changes, the new and improved, the injuries, and the rise and fall of players and teams. Most will not make sense if you do not have the guides since they contain the rankings of the players and contact information of the schools.
The states I cover right now include MN, ND, SD, IA, WI, and parts of MI.
If you are interested in purchasing the guides the cost is $99. Send mailing information to
