“I’ve been an underdog all my life,” Gilbert said. “When I’m on the court I want to kill whoever is in front of me. There’s a lot of stuff that I see on the internet (about people underestimating her). I want to prove them wrong.”

And Gilbert has been awfully good at getting the best of her opponents. At 5-foot-7, she doesn’t look like a scoring threat. But through 13 games this season, Gilbert averages 36 points, which is tops in the state. She also has 15.5 rebounds per game.

Kailyn is one of the most prolific scorers in the state, averaging more than 30 points per game. “I don’t know if you guys know her, but her name is Chennedy Carter,” she said.”  “She’s a point guard for Texas A&M, that’s who I model my game after. The way we shoot, the way we pass, the way we dribble.”
