Woolfolk helps Eagles rip Joliet

It was the Danielle Woolfolk show at the Clarion-Kirkwood Classic at Kirkwood Friday night.

The diminutive point guard scored 18 points, dealt four assists and collected four steals for a complete performance. She ran the offense and spearheaded the Eagles' swarming full-court trapping press.

“I think this is really great,” said Woolfolk, who stands 5-foot-3. “I am blessed to get to work with these girls. I am usually the littlest player on the court, but it’s my heart that takes me where I want to go.”

KCC women struggle against Mustangs

The Kirkwood women's basketball team has the talent to enjoy another successful season this year, but the young Eagles have plenty of room for growth.

That was apparent Wednesday night when Kirkwood lost a scrimmage to Mount Mercy University, 50-45, at Johnson Hall.

The Eagles led, 28-26, at halftime, but they scored only 17 points in the second half.

Little Woolfolk could be big for Eagles

Danielle Woolfolk thought she had made the right college decision.

Following a sterling prep career at Homewood-Flossmoor in Chicago, the cat-quick 5-foot-3 point guard signed on May 1, 2012, to play at Eastern Illinois University.

The Panthers were coached by Brady Sallee, coming off a 22-9 season. Ten days later, Woolfolk’s basketball world was turned upside down.

Sallee left Eastern Illinois to become the head coach at Ball State and was replaced by assistant Lee Buchanan.

“That changed everything,” Woolfolk said Sunday. “The coach that signed me left and the program wasn’t a good fit for me anymore. I just needed a new start.”

After playing in just 19 games, averaging 4.3 minutes a contest as a freshman at Eastern Illinois, Woolfolk was looking for a new start. Ariel Snead, a high school teammate of Woolfolk’s, transferred to Kirkwood Community College from Illinois-Chicago last January. When Snead heard Woolfolk was looking for a new home, she recommended the Eagles.

“Ariel introduced me to Coach (Kim) Muhl,” Woolfolk said. “And it just came about after that.”
