Liza Clemons got a glimpse of how physical the Big Ten will be when she suits up for Purdue next season.
The Snider senior played against Elkhart Memorial senior Akyah Taylor, a muscular Michigan State recruit, in a 52-47 loss to the Chargers on Wednesday.
The 5-foot-10 Taylor had 19 points and 11 rebounds, and the 6-2 Clemons got 18 points and 11 rebounds.
Taylor made 6 of 14 from the field, misfiring on her first four shots.
"She was good and playing hard," Clemons said of Taylor. "We did stop her at the beginning, but then we started letting go, and she was definitely a threat."
