Collins return key to Ranch run

If you've read what I've written over the years you should know that one thing has remained constant "the games starts at the one" and no matter what you think you believe about the game, if you don't believe that something is definitely wrong. Preseason, my top two picks were Cy Ranch and North Shore and keep in mind anything I predict is based on teams at full strength. North Shore has definitely showed they are the cream of the crop among the area 6A schools in Region 3 while Cy Ranch has had to go through the injury bug yet again, for the third straight season, that's the bad news.

The good news s that they're almost back to 100%, Arianna Whitfield and Rachel Tapps have had to miss a few games while DiDi Richards has been out since early December, she's about to come back and one of the states top sophomore points, D'Asia Collins just came back last week after being out all season with a knee injury. Collins returned with a bang, scoring, defending and running the team like she does and one thing I can say since I first saw her at 8 or 9 is that she was born to be a PG, her poise and confidence along with her BB-IQ has been off the charts since day one and she simply blew me away a couple of years later at the Texas A&M Camp so this is about to get interesting
