The girls are all pretty excited about the opportunity to go to deep into the playoffs.

“Oh my god, we work so hard, and we are getting more confident, and we have a lot of team chemistry and looking forward to spending more time with my girls and making it to State,” Barney said.

She has 39 points and 277 points this season and is a University of Northern Iowa commit.

Freshman Emerson Green, sister of junior Aj Green, is excited about the team getting this far also.

“We work really hard and are looking forward to finishing the year together and taking it as far as we can at the Well [the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines], and state champs,” Green said.

Although Green doesn’t get much playing time, she has 133 points, 46 assists and 23 blocks so far this season.
