Buffalo’s Girls Basketball Team faced off against Hopkins, the best program in the state, and Paige Bueckers on Friday, February 7. Bueckers is the top girls basketball recruit in the country according to ESPN and other sources.
Sophomore guard Lauren Feddema was charged with guarding Bueckers.
“It was really nerve wracking,” Feddema said. “I see her in videos and on TV but when I’m on the court guarding her it’s different. She moves and plays so smoothly that one second she’ll be standing in front of me and the next, the ball will be in the hoop. Her consistency makes her incredibly hard to guard without fouling.”
Bueckers had a total of 22 points in the game that Friday. The Royals defeated the Bison 69-34. The Bison take on Minnetonka tonight at home and travel to Eden Prairie on Thursday.
