Michigan State women’s basketball signee Tori Jankoska has reeled in the postseason accolades this week.
The Freeland High School senior was named Michigan’s Miss Basketball on Monday afternoon and has added a couple more awards this morning. Jankoska was named the Gatorade Michigan girls basketball player of the year today and also leads the Associated Press Class B All-State team as the player of the year.
“We’re really excited about Tori. She’s a special talent and she can play multiple positions for us,” MSU coach Suzy Merchant said during her weekly press conference Tuesday. “She’s a combination guard and she’s big enough where she can play the one, two, three.
“…We really need an outside scoring threat so I’ve been talking to her all season about her ability to shoot the basketball, come off ball screens and hit deep 3s. She can get to the paint. There’s just so many great things that she can do.”
Jankoska, who signed with the Spartans in November, becomes the third Spartan in the last four years to earn the Gatorade honors. Madison Williams won the award in 2010 and Jasmine Hines did in 2011.
Jankoska averaged 30.9 points, 7.0 rebounds and 4.8 steals and 3.8 assists as a senior for Freeland.
