The Pinnacle Bank Game of the Week will be a showcase of future college basketball players.

When No. 2 Millard South (10-1) travels to No. 9 Millard North (7-3) at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, there could be six players with NCAA scholarship offers on the court at the same time. That includes three committed to Division I schools and another with multiple D-I offers. Two more are pledged to Division II schools.

Millard South juniors Maddie Krull and Jayme Horan have both committed to Division I programs. Krull, a South Dakota commit, averages 16.3 points, 5.1 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 4.0 steals per game. Horan, a Creighton commit, averages 18.2 points, 7.9 rebounds, 2.5 steals and 2.0 assists per game.

"Millard South is an outstanding challenge for us and for anybody in the Metro Conference," Millard North coach David Diehl said. "Their high-pressure, full-court game forces opponents to be sharp with the ball for 32 minutes.

"They have two of the best players in the city, if not the state. They are a really good team."

Millard North's top scorer is junior guard Nicole Avila-Ambrosi at 14.1 points per game. Avila-Ambrosi — who has D-I scholarship offers from UNO and California Baptist — also leads the team with 3.7 steals per game.

Two Mustang seniors, Lauren West and Jayna Green, are averaging double figures. West, a UMKC commit, records 12.9 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.8 steals per game. Green, committed to D-II Northwest Missouri State, is third on the team in scoring (10.0) and leads the team in rebounding with 7.6 per game. Senior guard Lexi Kraft, committed to D-II Upper Iowa, averages 8.2 points per game.

"Millard North is a very talented team," Millard South coach Bryce Meyers said. "They have five or six (potential) college basketball players on their squad, so we need to be sharp on both ends of the floor. We are looking forward to the opportunity."

Diehl encourages fans of not just girls basketball, but basketball in general, to attend the game.

"This will be the best game in the city this weekend," Diehl said, "and if fans want to come out and see very talented players, who are hard-working and physical, then this is the game to be at. Load up the Family Truckster and bring the entire family."
