60 point game for Taylor Mikesell

Senior Taylor Mikesell scores 60 points tonight to become the leading all-time career point leader in Stark County (2,049) and hits 14 (of 17) 3 pointers to break a state record en route to an 82-58 win over Fitch.

Her coach declared, “I’ve seen a lot of great performances, but 14 of 17 from 3, with the degree of difficulty of those shots, is absolutely incredible...With all due respect to all the players across the state of Ohio, if there’s an argument for Ms. Basketball — with this game film, the argument is over.”

Meanwhile, McKinley's junior Kierstan Bell scored 31 tonight in their win over Hathaway Brown and is 25 points from joining the 2,000 career points club (Mikesell and Alston). She has also became the McKinley career rebound leader with 690.

Stark County has some seriously good talent this year. Cincinnati does as well, but I suspect Ms. Ohio will come out of Stark....who gets it will likely depend on tournament performance.

I have to disagree a little Taylor is a great player and a great marksman. But, heads up Gilmour's Naz Hilmon out played her in a game in December. Today And went 36 points 25 rebounds 7 steals against. State ranked Laurel. Often it not what you do, it's when you do it and against whom. On December 23rd Final score 72-41 Jackson was a taller team but Naz controlled the tempo of the game. Out playing Taylor 23-17 i believe. Taylor is the best shooter around, Naz or Kristen are better all around players.

You're right, instead of just congratulating her for an outstanding accomplishment, let's use ONE game to make a determination of her quality. It's sad, to see that nobody can receive recognition without someone else interjecting with unrelated nonsense. CONGRATS TAYLOR!! Great game and great player.

Overlooked

As fans of girls basketball we are lucky to have two of the best high school players in the nation In Bell and Mikesoll, putting on shows weekly for us in Stark County. But I also think the coaches of these two players, Anthony Butch of Jackson and his staff, and Pam Davis of McKinley and her staff do a tremendous job of getting these girls the ball in scoring position. Thats not an easy task when every night every teams defensive schemes are some combination of best defenders, box and ones, double teams, immediate traps etc.
Much respect to these terrific players, and their coaches!

Smile Ms. Basketball

It is always hard to pick Ms. Basketball but let's hope it involves an all around player. Good Luck K. Bell!

Do you realize how hypocritical that is considering in the article itself, the Jackson coach (who has been on a crusade all year esp in the media to proclaim her Ms. Basketball) based Ms. Basketball on one single game. CVC's post was spot on.

BOTH are incredible players but the constant need to compare them has gotten old and played out. They are completely different type players... it's a Curry vs Lebron type comparison.... and since Jackson's coach is putting on this campaign publicly, might as well throw out there that Bell is the league leader or in area leaders in just about every statistical category (including the key one here being assists) AND is the area's leading scorer... Jackson fans can also save the "ball hog" comments that have been all too common lately ... we don't want to make the comparison on who constitutes more of their team's offense especially lately. Bell also recently became McKinley's all time leading rebounder and will pass 2,000 pts herself soon and is not far behind Mikesell's point total.

If the post had been merely congratualatory and spelling out her accomplishments then I would see why you are upset by the comments about other players but it wasn't. Sounded like a discussion was opened up about Ms. Basketball when your post mentioned other players and the Ms. Basketball competition.If you didn't want one then don't mention it and just offer up her incredible performance for congratulating- always happy to see players have outstanding performances! Congratulations Taylor- have seen her play and she is increbikbky higb IQ mixed with sharp shooting skills for days!

Well said!

As McGal pointed out....there's no value in comparing these two players. They are both great but they are very different.

Best of luck to both players and their teams as they transition to the playoffs!

I will bet either one of them would give up a Ms. Basketball title for a chance to hold up the D1 trophy in Columbus...

And she still has another year to play..so there's that.

I believe the Ms. Basketball voting is by region. Four players are chosen by region. Canton-Toledo/Cleveland/Columbus/Cincy. I, could be wrong but that’s how it was done last year. Only one of the two will be in the final four. You can figure it out when they name the D1 player of the year ..

Ms. Basketball is regional and only district POY's are eligible that is correct.. it's also an AP/press voted award I'm pretty sure.
