Pre-Season Show Off Camp 2009 Report II
The 2012 class was dominated by explosive combo guards. Because of her
height, Alexis Hardaway (H.W. Byers (MS), 6'0, G/F) can play multiple positions. She can post down low, lead a
fast break and defend on the perimeter. Bianca Cage (Southwind, 5'8, G) can knock down 3s but it was her active defensive
skills that stood out. She picked up full court, deflected passes, anticipated passes and stole them. Cornelia Fondren
(Overton, 5'9, PG) knows only one level of energy and speed: HIGH. This young lady is going to leave it all
on the floor; defending, dishing, rebounding and knocking down the trey. Erika Sisk (Oxford (MS), 5'3, PG) is small in
statue but plays big. She is fast up the court either in speed or advancing the ball. She can knock down the threes
and has great vision in setting up teammates. LeMetria Dunn (Whitehaven, 5'4, PG) missed all of last season but has not loss a step. She is
still explosive at getting up the court and to the rack. Other 2012 notables: Arkela Ware-Jones (Overton, 5'4, G), Jasmine Stafford
Overton, 5'9, G), Kathryn Allen (Germantown, 5'8, G), Logan Hammonds (Arlington, 6'0, G/F).
The 2013 class featured scorers. Kiandria Patterson (Columbus (MS), 5'8, PG) is a lefty with long range and a nice stroke. Madison
Luckett (St. Benedict, 6'1, F) can not be left open because she is automatic from short range. Teresa Mays (Wooddale, 5'6, G) is smooth.
She has the ability to go left or right, get to the basket and hit the long range shots. Other 2013 notables: Amber Sisk (Oxford (MS), 5'1, G), Elexa Guy (Wooddale, 5'6, G), Erica Watkins (Fairley, 6'1, F), Kaylah Keys (Harding Academy, 5'4, G), Lauren Zvolanek (Munford, 5'8, F), Paige Williams (St. Benedict, 5'4, PG), Ra'Shona Shipp (White Station, 5'3, G).
The 2014 class demanded respect from the upper classmen in the camp. Amber Holmes (Southwind, 5'2, PG) was not shy at displaying her quickness, getting shots, distributing the ball and showing her NBA range. Khadejah Stevens (Craigmont, 5'10, F) showed in her second game that she can dominate the board pulling down 11 rebounds. Shandricka Sessom (Galena (MS), 5'7, PG) is long and athletic. She goes left and right and has good anticipation skills. Tia Wooten (Snowden, 5'9, G/F) is Miss Coast to Coast. It's nothing for her to grab the defensive rebound and beat everyone down the court for the layup. Other 2014 notables: Brittney Cooper (Highland Oaks, 6'0, F), Kenyata Echols (Havenview, PG), Madeson McCaster (Schilling Farms, 5'8, F), Olivia Cunningham (Southaven, 5'5, G), Philecia Atkins-Gilmore (Catholic, 5'2, PG), and Taylor Lewis (Pulaski Heights (AR), 5'7, PG).
Pre-Season Show Off Camp 2009 Report I
The 2009 Pre-Season Show Off Camp was full of diaper dandies, however,
the 2010 class did represent. Adrian Sanders (Ridgeway, 5'10, G/F) is like the energizer bunny. She just never stops; full of energy, loves to defend, rebound and can get to the free throw line and shoot beyond the arch.
Breion Douglas (Germantown, 5'7, G) came alive in her second game scoring a camp high 17 points. She showed her range hitting
3 three pointers and hustled her way to 7 rebounds and several stick backs. Desiree Phillips (Manassas, 5'11, G/F) is full of power. She
loves to shoot the 3 but does not mind penetrating and rebounding. Erica Ousley (Fairley, 5'6, G) is an aggressive guard. She will knock
down the 3, will go to the paint and bang for rebounds, and doesn't mind making the extra pass to an open team mate. Other 2010 notables: Ashley Coleman (City University, 5'9, F), Eboney Garmon (Westwood, 5'8, PG), LaKendra Harris (Manassas, 5'10, G/F) and Saraya Maxwell (Fairley, 5'3, PG).
The class of 2011 was highlighted by the 6 footers. Ashley Jones (Collierville, 6'0, F) displayed that she
can play with her back to the basket or faceup. Hasina Muhammad (Ridgeway, 5'11, G/F) showcased why she is a hot national
prospect sought by major division I programs. She played her all around game averaging 3 blocks per game, rebounding, distributing and causing major problems for opponents with her long wing span and leaping abilities. Kourtney Coleman (H.W. Byers (MS), 6'0, F) can go inside and bang for rebounds and slip outside to knock down threes and does not
mind leading the fast break. Shervonte' Bright (Trezevant, 5'11, G/F) let it be known that you can not leave her open for the short jumper nor 3 pointer. Lillie
Pittman (Trezevant, 5'8, F) isn't close to 6 feet but don't tell her that. Known for her rebounding abilities.
