Mississippi State signee Aliyah Matharu spent her senior season soaring at Bishop McNamara.
Vic Schaefer knows how to spot them. Aliyah Matharu, an explosive combo guard who is heading to Mississippi State, had an epic senior season at Bishop McNamara (Forestville, Maryland). After flying under the radar over the summer, Matharu averaged 17.7 points and 3.5 steals per game and helped keep Bishop McNamara in the chase for a national title until the very end. Matharu plays with fearlessness and an aggressive defensive nature -- think Morgan William with more offensive firepower. "She is dynamic on offense and disruptive on defense," Bishop McNamara coach Frank Oliver said earlier this year. Mississippi State fans are going to enjoy the ride with Matharu behind the wheel.

Women's basketball recruiting: Prospects on the rise in final 2018-19 rankings
A superb senior season at Bishop McNamara sent Mississippi State recruit Aliyah Matharu soaring up the 2019 recruiting rankings.
Aliyah Matharu, No. 28 prospect in 2019. The 5-foot-7 combo guard who is headed to Mississippi State has found another gear. Against some of the nation's best talent in the Washington, D.C., area, the senior simply shined. Matharu scored in bunches and led Bishop McNamara to a 31-4 record and kept her team in the hunt for a national title until the end. Matharu's game has some similarities to Morgan William. Yep, the same Morgan William who led Mississippi State past UConn with a buzzer-beater in the NCAA national semifinals in 2017. Matharu does not yet have the defensive skills that William had, but she does have the skills to produce more on offense. She is elusive off the dribble, superb at scoring in traffic, and she can bury the deep jumper. No prospect in any class did more to improve her stock than Matharu did.
