Beverly Verduin "star of the week" in Seattle Times

Beverly Verduin works some three-point magic in Friday's game against Roosevelt.

We already mentioned it in our basketball roundup, but thought it deserved extra attention. Ballard High School basketball player Beverly Verduin was highlighted in the Seattle Times as a "star of the week," most notably for her serious three-pointers. Here's what they have to say:

"Verduin, a junior guard, was a three-point wizard in two wins as the Beavers reached the playoffs for the first time in five years. She scored 21 points (hitting 3 of 6 three-point attempts) in an overtime win over Redmond, and nailed 8 of 10 behind the arc en route to a season-high 26 points against Roosevelt."

We recently highlighted Verduin along with her brother Johnny, who plays on the boys team, in a front page article late last year. She's been kicking some serious butt and it's about time she's been recognized for it.
