Samantha Logic of Racine Case named Miss Basketball

Madison — The voting went as expected.

Racine Case senior Samantha Logic won the Miss Basketball award from the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association, an honor that goes to the best player in the state.

She was presented with the honor before the Division 1 championship game Saturday at the Kohl Center.

The 5-foot-11 guard averaged 14.6 points and 8.5 rebounds per game for the Eagles. They went 22-3 and won a sectional title for the second straight year before losing to Milwaukee Pius in a Super Tuesday game.

"We had a pretty strong year. Any time you have only three losses, you can't really be mad. . ." Logic said. "We worked hard and I think everyone got better, so that is what you can always aim to do."

The Iowa recruit drew a lot of attention from opposing defenses and made them pay to the tune of 7.1 assists per game.

"Girls were finishing shots and they played zones on us," she explained. "When they're open I'm going to give them the ball and that is what zones do. When you move the ball against zones, you're going to get better shots than dribbling."

The accolades have rolled in for Logic in the last couple of months. She recently was named the Gatorade state player of the year and in February was named a McDonald's All-American.

She will play in the McDonald's All-American game Wednesday March 30th in Chicago and then participate in the Women's Basketball Coaches Association all-star game in Indianapolis on Saturday April 2nd.
