Future Bobcat update: Ausha Cole


Aush Cole is the far right

With my vacation of earlier this month I left a few things on the table. I will try to catch up on a few of them that I particularly enjoyed.

The East Valley Tribune (Phoenix, Arizona area newspaper) had a very nice article on the Gilbert highs school basketball team and its diminutive but very good girl’s basketball team. The Gilbert high school team features Montana State Bobcat signee 5-6 Ausha Cole as well as Weber State signee 5-5 Justine Johnson. Additionally 5-3 Whitney Southerland, is also expected to play basketball, possibly Yale, at the next level.

Here is what the Gilbert coach had to say about Cole in the article.

The leader on defense is Cole. She has signed a letter of intent to play at Montana State. Bunger says Cole is as good a defensive player as he has coached in 30 years. She can be physical with anyone she guards and has the quickness to match any opponent she faces.

“Every game I look forward to the matchup (defensively) I have,” Cole said. “I like the challenge of guarding the other team’s best player.”

It really is a pretty good article if you are looking for some information on a future Bobcat, but it also proves that you can be a State Championship contender even with your tallest player being under 5-8. You should check it out.

Additionally AzCentral.com had it’s own article a few weeks back on the Gilbert high school basketball team’s three senior leaders (Cole, Johnson, and Southerland) as they prepare to enter the Arizona State championship play offs. You also might want to check it out.

One more note on Ausha Cole. ESPN has recently upgraded her rating to 81 and ranked her as the #79th point guard in the country based on her performance in December. Here is their evaluation

Evaluation

Nike TOC-Dec. 09: Solid build with nice skills. Plays smart and under control. Creates off the dribble and makes sound decisions. Foot speed is the question mark on the defensive end as far as the next level is concerned.

Here is what an 81 ranking means.

80-82: Mid-major minus prospect
Player could be a three- or four-year contributor with an opportunity to eventually start at a mid-major program.
