Kampschroeder also received guidance from her parents, Brad and Amy, who played Division I basketball at Kansas and Valparaiso, respectively.

“They did a great job,” Kampschroeder said. “Without them, this process wouldn’t have been as easy as it was.

“Not that it was always easy, but they helped me get in contact with the people I needed to.”

So thorough was Kampschroeder’s research that she watched tapes of every Stanford, Iowa and Oregon State game this season.

“My parents and I would analyze them and talk about where I would fit within the offense,” Kampschroeder said. “They know me really well, and they helped me figure out where I could be most successful.”

Kampschroeder erupted for a career-high 36 points to go with six rebounds and six steals to lead the host Huskies to a 71-54 nonconference victory.

“I definitely felt my shot and it was there,” Kampschroeder said. “But one thing was my teammates were very patient.

“We ran our plays well, so they did a good job of getting me the ball and setting screens, and all those little things are important. So I was open.”

“Greta has a complete game,” Naperville North coach Jason Dycus said. “When she was a freshman, I had Sadie (Jurkovic) and some other players inside so I was able to play her on the perimeter.

“I told her this year I’m going to play you inside and out. I think she’s able to show her complete game with the way I’m playing her.”

Many high school basketball players have parents who played the sport, but few have the family history of Greta Kampschroeder.

The Naperville North freshman is the daughter of two former stars for the Huskies who went on to play college basketball.

Kampschroeder’s mother Amy played at Valparaiso and is a member of Naperville North’s athletic hall of fame. Greta’s father, Brad, played at Kansas as a walk-on.

“They tell me everything about high school basketball, how fun it is,” Kampschroder said. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, these four years, so I just have to enjoy it because the rest of my life I’m never going to be able to do this again.”
