The girls’ basketball season is just underway in Colorado. And Grandview’s Sienna Betts, the 6-foot-5 UCLA commit who willed the Wolves to a Class 6A state title last season, is wasting no time in turning heads.

Since the end of her sophomore season, the state’s most dominating player since — well, maybe her sister Lauren — was moved up to a five-star prospect by ESPN. With big-time college programs all after her services, she then announced in November that she would follow in her older sibling’s footsteps and join the Bruins.

On the court, both sisters have been grabbing some early winter headlines for their respective teams.

Sienna had a double-double in her first three games at an out-of-state tournament for Grandview (1-3), including a 34-point, 28-rebound performance at the beginning of the month. She is currently averaging 28.5 points on 80% shooting to go along with 16.3 boards.

At UCLA, Lauren is averaging a near double-double for the No. 2 team in the country — 17 PPG and 9.2 RPG. Her 77.4 field goal percentage is tops in the nation.

In this week’s look at big-school girls basketball, let’s touch on a few other head-turning performances from teams and players across the 6A-4A classifications.

Sienna Betts, the reigning Gatorade Player of the Year, was a gimme. But she’s not the only one impressing.

Class 6A

Legend: Following a second-round exit in the postseason, the Titans have started their 2023-24 campaign 9-0. All nine wins have been blowouts, including a 38-point win over last year’s runner-up Monarch Wednesday.

Mason Borcherding is one of four players averaging double figures for Legend. She’s currently at 13.8 points and 9.8 boards.

On Saturday as part of a tournament in Steamboat Springs, she went for 12-for-12 as the Titans got a 74-36 win over a previously-unbeaten 5A Frederick (4-1). Ava Gavi added a team-high 16 points, going 4 of 6 from deep.

Olivia Mortensen, Legacy: The junior just keeps filling up the stats sheet for the Lightning (1-2).

After averaging a double-double last season, Mortensen is averaging 22.7 points and 13 rebounds through three games this winter. She was one steal away from recording a triple-double in Friday’s 56-34 win over Platte Valley, finishing with 22 points, 14 rebounds and nine steals.

Class 5A

Air Academy: The Kadets have won by at least 20 points in each of their first four games. They beat Fountain-Fort Carson, Pueblo East and Vista Ridge at the Trojan Classic late last week.

Caitlin Kramer was the driving force behind Air Academy’s run to the 5A quarterfinals a season ago, and this year she leads the class at 23 PPG in its early goings.

In her last three games, Kramer has shot over 60% from the field. She’s also among the state’s best from the free throw line, starting the year 16 of 19.

Meghan Keil, Mountain View: The senior has started the year red-hot from behind the arc, hitting 15 of her 36 3-point attempts.

After she missed all three of her tries from deep in an opening-season loss to Frederick, she went 12 of 20 across her next two games, then added three more in the contest after that.

The Mountain Lions evened their record to 3-2 with consecutive wins over 6A Fossil Ridge and Rocky Mountain late last week then Severance Tuesday.

Class 4A

Brihanna Crittendon, Riverdale Ridge: Like Betts, 6-foot-3 Crittendon is the state’s other five-star prospect. She burst onto the high school scene last season, averaging a 31-point double-double as a freshman.

Through four games this season for the Ravens (2-2), the sophomore has scored at least 25 in each game while shooting 57% from the field.

Get this: She has scored 113 of her team’s 229 points and accounts for 49 of their 120 rebounds. Talk about production.

Alexandra Eschmeyer, Peak to Peak: Eschmeyer, standing 6-foot-5, is a four-star prospect by ESPN.

The uncommitted 2025 prospect is going to have a long list of offers to choose from when she decides. CU, Stanford, Louisville, Harvard, Princeton, Pennsylvania, Pepperdine and Washington are among those vying for her.

She recorded a double-double in her first five games this season for the Pumas (5-1). Last week in a 56-32 win over Forge Christian, she finished with 33 points on 60% shooting and had 16 rebounds.

She’s also proven her defensive dominance in the paint, totaling 22 blocks in five games.
