The one thing you can count on at the Breakdown Tip-Off Classic is interesting matchups that you otherwise would not see. This non-conference matchup between teams from different classes will be one of two distinct styles.
Simley is led by big-time post scorers in Abby Kain and Kylie Brown, who averaged a combined 24 ppg last season. On the other side, Mounds View will be very perimeter-based this season and will rely heavily on its point guard, Katie McDaniels, to carry the scoring load this season.
Katie McDaniels vs. Alexis Boyd-Lockett
McDaniels is very dangerous coming off ball-screens, and is able to get to the rim at will against most defenders. Boyd-Lockett has the quickness to keep her in front, and if she can limit those easy layups for McDaniels, Mounds View offense will really suffer.
