Jankoska named to PARADE All-American team

May 22, 2013

MSU’s women basketball recruit Tori Jankoska of Freeland High was named to the 2013 PARADE High School All-American team. In March, she was named Michigan’s Miss Basketball and the state’s Gatorade Girls Basketball Player of the Year.

During her senior year, Jankoska averaged 30.9 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 4.8 steals, as Freeland finished the season with a 22-2 record. Jankoska scored 2,333 points throughout her career at Freeland, which broke its career scoring record.

It is the fourth-straight season that a recruit committed to head coach Suzy Merchant has been named a high school All-American.

The previous three were: Branndais Agee, who was a WBCA All-American in 2012, Jasmine Hines, who was also named to the PARADE team in 2011, and Madison Williams, who was recognized by both McDonald’s and USA Today in 2010.

Jankoska likely will compete for a spot in MSU’s backcourt in 2013-14 following the departure of seniors Jasmine Thomas and Tracy Nogel.
