The awards keep rolling in for Mountain View senior point guard Destiny Slocum.
A day after being named a second-team member of the Naismith Trophy Girl’s All-American team, she earned a spot on another All-American team (National Women’s Basketball Coaches Association) and won the Idaho’s Gatorade player of the year award for the second year in a row.
Slocum finished her high school career in February by leading Mountain View (23-4) to back-to-back 5A state titles. She averaged 25.0 points, 6.4 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 3.2 steals as a senior, and she set the 5A state tournament scoring record at 28.3 ppg.
Ranked as the No. 7 nationally in her class by ESPN, Slocum has signed with national power Maryland next season. And she’ll play in the McDonald’s All-American Game on March 30 in Chicago.
