Prep Athlete of the Week: Lexi Bando

EUGENE, Ore. - It's a new season for the Willamette High School girls basketball team, but like last year, Lexi Bando will have a big part in the Wolverines success.

Head coach Paul Brothers said it's not just Bando's scoring but her ability to distribute the ball that helps the Wolverine offense.

After her final season at Wil-Hi, Bando will be on her way to Gonzaga to play basketball.

In the meantime, the Wolverines seek their fourth state title in eight years - a tough task, but Bando said she and her teammates are up to the challenge.
