Minneapolis Washburn Advances...... Lead by the play of Chase Coley

Washburn has been doing well all season and now are in the state tournament seeking a state title. Defeating Monticello 62 to 53 Tuesday night at Target Center, Chase Coley led her team in every category. Coley finished with 29 points, 15 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 blocks.

She has been the topic of discussion all year. This season, she leads her team in every category averaging nearly a triple-double per game (24.4 points, 18.4 rebounds, 9.4 assists). With her long and agile frame, she brings a nice touch in the mid-post area. She alters shots, rebounds and passes the ball very well. Coley is becoming one of the most surprising talents in the 2014 class. She ranks 94th overall for the 2014 class by ESPN and is 14th in recruits of her position. Before heading to Iowa, where she will continue her career, Chase is on a mission for a state title leading her team the entire way.

Can Chase be considered in the categories of some of the Minnesota greats? Her play is a combination of Georgie Jones, who graduated from St. Paul Central in 2008, and Tamara Moore, the Minneapolis North standout from the 1998 class. Both won state titles for their respective schools.

Coley will potentially answer that question Thursday at Williams Arena, when Washburn faces Park Center in the semifinal round of the class AAA state tournament. Neither team faced each other in the regular season.
