The MVP of Kansas’ Sunflower League is headed to Kansas University on a women’s basketball scholarship. Kylee Kopatich, a 5-foot-10 junior point guard for Olathe South, orally committed to Bonnie Henrickson’s KU program on Sunday and announced the commitment Monday. She initially had committed to Kansas State but made other plans following the removal of Deb Patterson as coach. Basketball recruiting notes by Gary Bedore
