Peeler said: “I thought it was going to be tough for us to gain a relationship, but she's just an awesome player who loves the game of basketball. She's always working to improve.

“I want to be able to use her as an example throughout many years here at Memorial.”

Decker's example will live on through her two younger sisters, twin freshmen Andee and Kasey, who were both her teammates this season.

“I've absolutely loved my time playing with my sisters,” Decker said. “It'll be a time I'll cherish for the rest of my life. We've always gone up to the gym and played pick-up ball. We've always been really close.”

Decker will now move on to Wichita State to play college basketball.

“I'm just expecting to go in and work my butt off,” she said. “I hope I get to play; we'll see where my hard work takes me.”
