Adrienne Anderson sparking Ferris at guard position

Adrienne Anderson

BIG RAPIDS — Adrienne Anderson has had a banner season as a sophomore guard for Ferris’ women’s basketball team, but the product of Ann Arbor Prep High School is hoping to help the Bulldogs finish the regular season strong.

Ferris is coming off a four-game home stretch and will be on the road for their final three games of the regular season, starting at Purdue Northwest on Feb. 21.

After a recent 91-79 GLIAC loss to Ashland, Anderson could see some good things on what the Bulldogs have been doing.

“We played team defense and work hard on effort,” Anderson said.

Anderson recently had a separated shoulder and has come back in true form.

“The season has gone very well,” she said. “We’re not happy. We always want more. We’re happy where we sit but are striving for more.”

Anderson has been a quarterback of sorts for the team.

“I trust my team to help me, they build me up constantly,” she said. “That helps me in the offensive end as well.”

The Bulldogs are 11-12 overall and have lost five straight. The three teams they play on the road to end the regular season — Purdue Northwest, Wisconsin Parkside and Lake Superior — are all opponents they defeated earlier in the season.

“We’re going for it all, work as a team and doing what we can do,” Anderson said.

She has started all 20 games in which she has played and has averaged 10.1 points, 2.5 assists and 2.3 steals a game.

Anderson helped the Bulldogs win 15 games and reach the GLIAC Tournament Semifinals during the 2017-18 campaign. She appeared in 28 games and made five starts for FSU and averaged six points per contest as a freshman. She was chosen as the Ann Arbor Girls Basketball Player of the Year in 2016-17 and averaged 13 points, three assists and three steals per game as a senior. She’s a four-year varsity player, with the team going 96-11 during that time, including winning a Class C state championship in 2016.
