Basketball: You haven't seen the last of this family

This is a totally self-indulgent, purely ego-driven, Ontario-centric post, but you should have fair warning ... there are still Doornekamps out there, playing basketball:
When watching Laura Doornekamp play basketball, it is hard to believe she is only 15 years old.

The Ernestown Eagles guard ... is mature beyond her years on the court and is one of those glue players craved by all coaches for her basketball IQ.
Let's not get ahead of ourselves. This is a girl in Grade 10 (although she played senior basketball in Grade 9, like a certain cousin who's now the star of the Carleton men's team, if you want to draw totally glib and inappropriate comparisons). It's more amusing than anything that the family lineage has produced yet another basketball player. That would make it, what, a dozen?
