Season highlights: Coach Josh Ulitzky’s Grandview team went through the fire of a lot of competition against out-of-state powerhouse teams in the early portion of the season and then played its best basketball of the season later on its way to winning the Centennial League and later the Class 5A state championship. With a lot of fanfare, Betts joined the Wolves for one season to play with older sister Lauren and her addition gave Grandview another valuable contributor in its championship chase. Sienna Betts racked up 16 points and pulled down 11 rebounds in a season-opening loss to Duncanville, Texas, at the She Got Game Classic and grew more comfortable as the season went along. The All-Centennial League second team pick scored in double figures 16 times and finished third on the team with an average of 10.4 points per contest, with high contests of 20 points coming twice (against Cherokee Trail and 4A state champion Mullen). Betts averaged 9.0 rebounds per game to rank second behind her big sister and had six double-doubles plus three games where she needed just one more point or one rebound to achieve the feat. Using her size and passing ability, Betts tied her sister for Grandview’s team lead in assists at 3.5 per game and ranked second in blocked shots at 1.9 per contest. Betts earned a spot in the A-Town All-Star Game for the first time.
