Girls’ basketball state title only leaves Louisa’s McGhee hungry for more (Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star, 3/29/2021)

The Division I prospect with 27 scholarship offers has dominated since she arrived in high school in 2019.

This past season, she averaged 22.8 points per game, 11.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 3.2 steals and 1.4 blocks as she helped lead the Lions to the state championship and earn Free Lance-Star player of the year honors.

As soon as the season ended, McGhee returned to the gym to work on her outside shot and improve her decision-making because she’s already planning for an encore against what she hopes is a full 2022 slate in Class 4.

“There are some people, even in Louisa, saying we won states but it really shouldn’t count because we didn’t get to play the full [Class 4] or whatever,” McGhee said. “But I feel like we can compete with anybody in the state in my opinion. So we’re ready.”
