Season highlights: Biosse was a big part of the group that contributed to a massive season for coach Tammi Traylor-Statewright’s Cougars, who nearly doubled their win total from the previous season — as they went from 10-14 to 19-6, which included a win over eventual Class 6A state champion and rival Grandview — got ranked as high as No. 2 at one point in the CHSAANow.com 6A Coaches Poll and advanced to the Sweet 16. Biosse was one of four players who averaged better than eight points per game and she had her best offense gave in the last game, as she tallied 18 points in a Sweet 16 loss to Regis Jesuit. The All-Centennial League second team performer scored in double figures eight times as she raised her average from 1.7 points per game to 8.3 this season, while she also ranked second on the team in assists per game. Biosse earned selection to the A-Town All-Star Game for the first time.
