George Rogers Clark is having a great run of success over the past two seasons. After a Final four appearance in 2018 and an Elite 8 this season, Senior-to-be Kennedy Igo is hungry for a state title. With the decision already made to attend Northern Kentucky for her college career, Igo has forgone her 17u AAU season to focus on getting stronger and getting her team back to Rupp Arena. I recently caught up with the sharpshooting guard to talk about her game and the her future.
Igo is coming off a tremendous Junior season where she averaged 14.1 points per game while shooting an incredible 45% from three on the season. She described her game to be as “A general on the floor. I’m a team player.” She believes her court vision is among her best assets on the floor but realizes she has room for improvement as well, “I see the floor well. I shoot the three well and I can play great defense. I need to improve on my quickness and moves to get by longer defenders.” Kennedy was happy with the high school season at GRC but disappointed that it didn’t end with net cutting in Rupp Arena. “Our season ended too early but other than that I was pleased. The Scott High game (regional semifinal) stands out to me because I had a good game (Kennedy had 25 points) and I helped my team get another step closed to our goal.”
Back on December 1st, Igo decided her mind was made up on her next school and elected to go ahead and verbally commit to Northern Kentucky for her college basketball career. As a result, she has chosen not to play AAU this year, ” I’m not playing AAU this summer because I have already committed. Don’t want to take a chance on getting an injury. I’m going to work on my game over the summer and get ready for my senior season.” She chose the Norse over several offers. Her focus is on getting back to Rupp Arena and achieving what she couldn’t do this season. When I asked her if she has any individual goals to achieve for the rest of her high school career, her answer was simple, “I want to get stronger and win a state championship.” With a good Senior season, the George Rogers Clark Lady Cards could find themselves climbing ladders at Rupp Arena next March.
