EAST LANSING, Mich. - Incoming Michigan State women's basketball freshman Tori Jankoska of Freeland High School continued to pile up postseason honors, after being 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.
The 5-8 guard averaged 30.9 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 4.8 steals this season, as Freeland finished this season 22-2, but lost in the Class B regional semifinal. Jankoska shattered Freeland's career scoring record, totaling 2,333 points in her career.
Jankoska has been a first-team all-state selection as a junior and sophomore, while being an honorable choice as a freshman. She was named Player of the Year as a junior by the Midland Daily News, and has been on the newspaper's Dream Team each of her three seasons. She is also a three-time first-team all-conference honoree.
It is the fourth-straight season that a Suzy Merchant recruit has been named a high school All-American - Branndais Agee was a WBCA All-American in 2012, Jasmine Hines was also named to the PARADE team in 2011, and Madison Williams was recognized by both McDonald's and USA Today in 2010.
