Benton Harbor's Greatest Basketball Player

Benton Harbor player Kysre Gondrezick wins Miss Basketball for the state of Michigan, but she could have been Miss Basketball for the whole country. The Black Autonomy Network Community Organization is proud to have watched Kysre Gondrezick develop into the young woman that she is.
Kysre Gondrezick is Miss Basketball. The award honoring a Michigan top senior on a girl's basketball team was announced in March of this year by the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan and the Detroit Free Press.
Kysre Gondrezick averaged a state record 40.5 points per game and broke a state mark of 72 points in her tournament opener this year before being eliminated in the district finals.
The 5'9" guard from Benton Harbor won easily over Muskegon Mardrekia Cook. Gondrezick signed to play at Michigan next season, making her the first Miss Basketball winner to choose to be a Wolverine in four years and the second in more than a decade.
When I speak of Kyrse Gondrezick, I am speaking of some sentimental and strong response to the world crisis. I am speaking of that force that she is driven by as the supreme unifying principal of life. Love is somehow the key that unlocks the door which leads to ultimate reality.
