WPIAL girls basketball teams have had a hard time stopping Ellis School guard Natalie Jasper over the past few years.

Now, she’ll be the Big East’s problem. The senior guard verbally committed to Georgetown and announced her decision via her Twitter account Friday.

Jasper was a big part of Ellis’ run to the WPIAL Class 2A semifinals and PIAA quarterfinals last season. The 5-foot-6 guard averaged 23 points, six rebounds, three assists and three steals on the way to a 20-7 record. She also scored a season-high 34 points against Our Lady of the Sacred Heart in the quarterfinals of the WPIAL tournament.

Jasper eclipsed 30-plus points five times throughout her junior season and also never scored below 10 while being named second-team all-state. Ellis’ season ended when its PIAA quarterfinal matchup with Bishop McCort was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
