Denton Ryan is no stranger to standout point guards, and this season is no different.
This year, the Lady Raiders boast a surging Teana Ogden, a junior who is already getting noticed on the recruiting trail.
Her evaluation on ESPN HS describes her as an "ultra quick point guard with great hands and great court vision." Her statistics certainly back that up.
Ogden averages 19 points, five rebounds and four assists per game, making her one of the most well-rounded guards in the area.
And she's lifting her team in the process. Ryan (17-8, 7-1) is now in sole possession of first place in District 4-4A following its 54-42 win over long-time rival Wichita Falls Rider, and looks poised to make another deep run in the playoffs.
The Lady Raiders should be as battle tested as any 4A team in the area by the time the playoffs roll around. In addition to playing in a competitive district, Ryan's nondistrict schedule was laced with elite 5A opponents, including Irving MacArthur, DeSoto, Lewisville and Duncanville.
Ryan reached the third round of the playoffs each of the last two years.
