We've seen this before at the University of Minnesota. Just last season, in fact, when freshmen Mara Braun, Mallory Heyer and Amaya Battle were all in the top four in scoring for the women's basketball team.

So it's not unprecedented.

But, again this year, one of the most important players on the Gophers is a first-year player: Grace Grocholski. A Wisconsin native who won back-to-back high school titles at Kettle Moraine High School, Grocholski was originally set to play for Dawn Plitzuweit at West Virginia before Plitzuweit came here.

A top-100 player in the country, according to ESPN, Grocholski followed Plitzuweit to Minnesota. And she moved right from high school into the starting lineup.

Strong catch/shoot player. This was a good get for the Gophers. Just as we're seeing with Braun, G$$ will have to grow when the defenses make her move her feet. I'm not sure if she can step left or right and still be a good shooter. I believe this is why Coach P want her to drive more.
