I remember the first time I saw Ella Grove of Alexandria. It was summer ball back in 2016 and it was her athleticism and natural, free-flowing style of play that caught my eye. Like so many young players we see for the first time I slipped Ella’s name into our database and made a mental note, filing her in my ‘Check back later’ category. Three years have passed and we are pleased to report that later is now, and Grove is having a break-out season with the Cardinal. That’s why she has risen 51 places in the Prep Girls Hoops Class of 2020 rankings, a bigger jump than any other junior in Minnesota.
