Joliet West sophomore Lisa Thompson’s big-time play attracts major attention from colleges (Herald-News, 2/27/2021)
Joliet West sophomore guard Lisa Thompson’s skill was on full display Friday against Plainfield East.
The 5-foot-9 sophomore collected a rebound on one end of the court and took off. She had to change direction twice to get past three defenders then slipped her teammate the ball right before a fourth opponent tried to stop her.
Although her teammate’s shot didn’t go in, Thompson’s play elicited an audible “Nice pass Lisa!” from the bench.
