The girls can get a full ride in that range and beyond, where many boys in that same range won't see any offer of scholarship $, but it can them get in the school they want. So boys have to play more tournaments to keep up and often train differently in pursuit of the same goals. That's the different path I meant.
The problem for both girls and boys is that so many available scholarships go to foreign students.
Why it's tough for our kids to get scholarhips, look at New Mexico State's men's and women's team, 100% foreigners!
