Miami High’s Beatrice Mompremier is Miss Basketball

Miami High basketball star Beatrice Mompremier is ready to play on the national stage again this week.

And when Mompremier steps on the court at the United Center in Chicago on Wednesday for the 2015 McDonald’s All-America game, she will do so as this year’s Miss Florida Basketball.

Mompremier earned the state of Florida’s highest honor from the Florida Dairy Farmers Association on Monday, joining former Miami Central alum and WNBA standout Tracey Reid as the only girls’ basketball players from Miami-Dade County to win the award.

Mompremier, a 6-4 senior center and Baylor University signee, averaged 26.3 points and 13.3 rebounds to lead Miami High to its second consecutive state championship and third Class 8A final appearance in a row.

She will compete on the East squad of the McDonald’s All-America game Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m. in Chicago. The game will be televised live by ESPNU, followed by the boys’ game at 9 p.m. on ESPN.

PINDER HONORED

For the fifth time in the past six seasons, Fort Lauderdale Dillard coach Marcia Pinder was the Florida Dairy Farmers Association’s Coach of the Year. After not making it to state last year, Pinder led Dillard back to state and to its fifth state title in six seasons with a 30-1 record. In 38 years coaching Dillard, Pinder has guided Dillard to nine state championships.

Dillard has one more title it hopes to win this week when it competes in the Dick’s Sporting Goods National High School Basketball Invitational in New York. The Panthers, ranked No. 3 nationally by USA Today, are the highest ranked team in the four-team tournament and the top seed.

Dillard plays New York’s South Shore High in a semifinal at 1 p.m. at Christ The King High School. Miami Country Day plays Gonzaga Prep in the other semifinal at 11 a.m.

The winners will advance to Saturday morning’s final at 10 a.m., which will be played at Madison Square Garden. All games will be televised on ESPNU.

Pinder announced that Dillard will be feted at a pep rally sponsored by Dick’s Sporting Goods on Tuesday inside the school’s gym.
