Buoyed by fast start, Alwal wants to continue to develop game

Posted 11/17/2011 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Martha Alwal grew accustomed to being the "big girl." As a standout at Worthington High School in Minnesota, the 6-foot-4 center often was the tallest player on the basketball court. Typically, Alwal towered over opponents, and rarely did she face another post player who was tall enough to look her in the eyes. Now a freshman on the Mississippi State women's basketball team, Alwal remains one of the tallest players on her team. No longer, though, does Alwal go stretches without seeing playing against someone her height -- or taller -- or an opponent who wants to play physically in the paint.
