PGH Team Preview

As we enter the 2019/2020 high school basketball season in Kansas. Prep Hoops will preview some of the Kansas City area high schools. These preview articles will give you details on key players, season expectations and more.

In this article, we preview the SM Northwest Lady Cougars.  After finishing 16-7 a year ago and making a state tournament appearance Northwest is looking to reload and compete in a good Sunflower League.


Players to watch

Kennedy Taylor, Forward, Junior, (2021)

Taylor, in orange fighting for loose ball

The 6’3, power forward is a returning starter for the Lady Cougars. Coming off a productive sophomore year where she averaged close to a double-double with 10pts & 9 rbs. These numbers would earn her 3rd team all-conference honors. The long, powerful and athletic Taylor blends power and finesse when maneuvering close to the basket. An eminent rebounder that is able to track boards outside her radius consistently. A key member of the KC Dream Basketball Club, where she competed against high-level competition all summer, look for her to be one of the leaders for Northwest.
