Danielle McCray

Olathe East High School alum Danielle McCray, now a senior at the University of Kansas, didn't just earn First Team All-Big 12 honors last season, leading the women's basketball team with an average 21.6 points (ranking second in the Big 12 and eighth in the NCAA) and 7.7 rebounds per game and topping the Big 12 in three-pointers. She went on to spend part of her summer vacation in Belgrade, Serbia, helping the United States bring home the gold in the 2009 Women's World University Games. Now she's one of 25 women on the watch list for the prestigious Wade Trophy, awarded annually to "the greatest female basketball player in the country who not only excels athletically but serves as a positive role model both on and off the court." We won't know the Wade Trophy winner until the women's Final Four in San Antonio in April, but McCray has high expectations for herself no matter what. On a blog after winning the gold in Belgrade, she wrote that she would celebrate with friends and family back home and then "get back to preparing for my last season as a Jayhawk. I think this great success that I have experienced will transfer over to a successful season for the Kansas Jayhawks!" Way to go, champ.
