South's Tayler Hill: Scoring and more

Minneapolis, MN

South’s Tayler Hill is nearing the state career scoring record and is a matchup nightmare for opponents. Said Hopkins coach Brian Cosgriff: “You put a big player on her and she’s too quick; you put a quick player on her and she’s too strong.” Photo by Marlin Levison, Star Tribune

Minneapolis South's Tayler Hill is so smooth in piling up points, not everyone sees the effort and the class behind her gaudy statistics.

"That kid literally walked through our defense like it was nothing," Patterson said last week. "It was the most incredible performance I've ever seen from an eighth-grader."
