Cooper is the Morning News Girls’ Basketball Player of the Year (Florence Morning News, 3/17/2018)
Cooper already is drawing interest from some of women’s college basketball’s most successful coaches. Among them is South Carolina’s Dawn Staley, coach of the reigning national champion Gamecocks.
“It’s good that I have college coaches coming in to talk to me, but I also like to keep my grades up before I play basketball,” Cooper said.
Then, Cooper shared what it is about her play that impresses Staley.
“She likes that I’m not selfish with the ball,” Cooper said.
