Midwest City's Marisha Wallace heading to Northern-Enid
Midwest City star forward Marisha Wallace will play in college at Northern Oklahoma College in Enid, she said after Wednesday’s large-school girls All-State basketball game.
Wallace had a fantastic high school career that was marred by two major knee injuries. Six games into her junior season at Midwest City, she tore her ACL, MCL and LCL. Then, 15 seconds into last season’s Class 6A semifinals against Edmond Memorial March, Wallace tore her meniscus.
She was part of two state championship teams — her freshman year at Millwood and her junior year at Midwest City.
Wednesday was her first time back on the court since the meniscus tear. She scored 14 points and grabbed five rebounds in the West’s 73-50 win over the East at the Mabee Center in Tulsa.
Wallace said the knee “felt good” Wednesday and that she’s been working hard to rehab as she prepares to head to Enid for college ball.
Wallace had offers from some smaller NCAA Division I schools, but decided to go to junior college after the menicus tear.
“Coming off two knee injuries, I decided to go to juco because I wanted more options,” Wallace said.
