Remarkable statistics are nothing new to girls basketball. Still, what one North Carolina forward recently achieved may take personal dominance to a new level: She has singlehandedly nearly outscored her team’s opponents over the course of a month.
As first noted by Prep Rally’s own Ben Rohrbach, Charlotte (N.C.) Providence Day School superstar Jatarie White scored 236 points in games between January 4 and February 8. Providence Day’s foes scored 267 points against Providence Day in total across that same span.
It’s no surprise that Providence Day was 12-0 in that stretch.
White, a 6-foot-3 forward, has been just as impressive throughout her senior campaign, averaging a double-double of 19 points, 10 rebounds and 3 assists per game, leading Providence to a 24-4 overall record. She scored her 1,000 career point back in December, an impressive feat considering the fact that she had more than a year-and-a-half of high school basketball left at the time.
Perhaps more importantly, White is a focal point of the team’s defense, which holds opponents below 29 points per game, on average.
