#17 - 1996 — Megan Jensen, Davis (BYU) Next » 2 of 18 « Prev
It's not hard to find out what kind of a basketball player Megan Jensen of Davis is. You can even tell before the tip-off of a game she is playing in. All you have to do is look at her knees.

Covered with floor-burn scrapes, scabs, bruises and scars, Jensen's knees could very well be the worst looking in the state. They are knees that Jazz head coach Jerry Sloan would be proud of as they display the tenacity, aggressiveness and hustle Jensen plays every game with.That attitude is just one of the reasons why Jensen was selected as Ms. Basketball of 1996, presented by the Deseret News in recognition of the best all-around player in the state. Jensen becomes the second player to be awarded the honor, following in the footsteps of last year's inaugural winner Emily Freeze of Timpview.

The 5-foot-7 point guard claims that she got her fierce attitude through her "relaxing" hobby of playing soccer.
