For much of her high school career, Dani Harley has been overlooked.
The South Salem High School senior guard forced people to pay attention to her at the OSAA Class 6A state tournament.
The 5-foot-7 Harley averaged 13.0 points – making a tournament-best nine 3-pointers and averaging 40 percent from 3-point range – at the state tournament in helping the Saxons to a third-place finish.
Harley has committed to play basketball in college at George Fox.
This is the American Family Insurance ALL-USA Mid-Valley weekly watch list:
