Calvary Christian’s Holly Dupree didn’t think she had a real shot at earning a college scholarship. She had reason — few 5-foot-5 post players do.
But Andrew College women’s basketball coach Mike Riffe saw more than height when observing Dupree play for the Lady Knights last basketball season.
“I’d actually seen her play twice. The second time I saw her play was against Arlington, who, of course has a great team,” said Riffe. “What impressed me most about Holly is that she never gave up, she’s got good hands, she sees the floor well and she never quit until the game was over. I was very impressed.”
Impressed enough to sign the Calvary Christian senior to a basketball letter of intent to play for his Cuthbert, Ga.-based Lady Tigers next season.
