Hasina Muhammad advancing her game


image by Mark Lewis/ESPN Hoopgurlz


Ridgeway made the trip to the Braggin Rights Classic in Ohio and once again finished undefeated in their second national event. I heard that major division one colleges coaches were in attendance including representatives from UConn, Tennessee and Maryland. Evidently, Ridgeway players including junior Hasina Muhammad did not disappoint. Here's what Mark Lewis of ESPN Hoopgurlz had to say about Hasina:

Even since Thanksgiving, the Ridgeway (Tenn.) High School junior seems to have advanced her game. Her presence and impact are constantly felt at both ends of the court. Offensively she gets into the paint time and again forcing defenders to rotate but often she get the shot off or pass made before help gets there. Several times her evaluation and reach demonstrated the fact that she's going to be one of those athletes who plays at or even above the rim. The jump shot at this point is still the major weakness she must pay attention to but it's hard to imagine many recruiters letting that get in their way. Defensively she may well be at her best. She constantly changes shots and throwing over her is a path best not taken. Her lateral footspeed will let her match up with smaller players making her that much more imposing. This is one prospect who may just be tapping into her potential.

Fairley girls advance by beating Millington in Dragon Fire Invitational

Relentless defense and a series of comebacks set the stage for Erica Ousley's game-winning free-throw with 3.7 seconds left as Fairley topped two-time defending champion Millington, 43-42, in the semifinals of the Dragon Fire Invitational Tuesday night at Collierville.


The Bulldogs (11-2), who have given up just 38 points a game in three tournament starts, will meet St. Benedict (11-3), a 46-29 winner over Collierville, in the finals at 7:30 tonight.


"This is huge for our confidence," said Ousley, who had seven of her 17 points in the fourth quarter. "But all I know is that I was thinking, 'No overtime!' the moment that free throw went in."

Aaliyah Whiteside stands out in Nike Tournament of Champions

Central probably did not bring home the TOC Title but their young stars certainly solidified their status as major Division 1 prospects including sophomore Aaliyah Whiteside. Here's what ESPN Hoopgurlz said about her performance at the event.

The young backcourt for Niki Bray's Lady Warriors can matchup with anyone in the country, including taking then No. 1 St. Mary's to the brink. Memphis (Tenn.) Central's sophomore guard Aaliyah Whiteside has grown her confidence by leaps and bounds from her freshman season. The 5-10 lefty plays closer to 6 feet with her length. Her 3-point stroke is falling at a much higher percentage and she works the baseline, using her length and balance to finish in traffic. Where continued improvement is needed is on the defensive end. She has the quickness, speed and the aforementioned length to be a dominant defender. The lack of consistency cost her some minutes in the Lady Warriors near upset of St. Mary's. Judging by the progress in her game in the last year she will be greatly improved in this area by the end of the season.

Dragon Fire Invitational Day 2 Report

Fairley vs St. Agnes

When you go watch Fairley play, be prepared. Fairley is one of the most patient teams you will ever see and St. Agnes is just as patient. Fairley can tend to be too patient and pass up good shots by making the extra pass. St. Agnes immediately takes whats given.

Within the first 3 minutes of the game, it looked as if Fairley had met their match with St. Agnes taking an early 5-0 lead. However, after a free throw by freshman Erica Watkins, Fairley went on a 14-0 run to end the quarter 14-5.

St. Agnes seemed a little rattled and changed from a zone to a man-2-man defense but Fairley continued to hit threes and knock down wide open shots on the weak side block. Fairley pretty much cruised to victory 57-36.

Two players who are really stepping their game up is Fairley junior Brandi James and freshman Erica Watkins. You can not leave Brandi open behind the arc. Erica Watkins is improving tremendously in the paint especially footwork and hands. She's knocking down shots and controlling herself better than earlier in the season.

Fairley (57) -- Marquasha Evers 7, Brandi James 18, Erica Ousley 14, Erica Watkins 16, Brandi Wells 2.

St. Agnes (36) -- Katie Bell 2, Allie Haag 7, Devan Langston 6, Cristina Patton 5, Maggie Thompson 6, Dallas Threadgill 4, Rachel Young 6.

Fairley / 14 / 16 / 14 / 13 / -- / 57 /

St. Agnes / 5 / 9 / 10 / 12 / -- / 36 /

Collierville vs Mitchell

This turned out to be a great game. It was close throughout.

I've been to a lot of games throughout this season and when I attended the first Mitchell-Fairley match up at Mitchell, I found one of the city's purest shooters, senior Anesha Morton. She reminds me so much of former Mitchell standout, Andrea Holmes who's now at Binghamton University. She got the game started with a three pointer. Do not leave her open. I repeat. Do not leave her open. She finished the game with 5 three pointers.

The Dragon Fire Invitational is the place to be to watch poised point guards. Millington's senior Jasmine Newsome is probably the best overall point guard in the mid-south area. But this young lady showed me tonight that she is a close second. Collierville's senior Nia Gregory has a vision like Steve Nash. She will rebound, anticipate and steal and score. But the 1 thing this young lady has that does not show up in the books is her heart. Tonight she refused to let her team lose.

This game was more of a battle of the post. There was some great post action tonight. Mitchell senior Jasmine Gardner is so agile running the floor and scoring in transition. She has great hands for catching high passes. She rebounds and block shots. Another senior for Mitchell, Jasmine Cofield, size will fool you. She can run the floor also and even handle the ball.

But tonight Collierville's junior Ashley Jones stepped up and made her presence known against the upperclassmen. She displayed a variety of low post moves; face up, hook shot, drop step, and stick back. Her long arms and big body takes up a lot of space and caused some problems for Mitchell.

Collierville pulled it out 42-37.

Millington, St. Benedict advance to Dragon Fire tournament semifinals

Millington and St. Benedict, who decided last year’s Dragon Fire Invitational title, moved to a game away from a rematch Monday. SBA's Eagles were the ones catching their breath afterwards.

Fairley Girls Easily Handle Bolton at Dragon Fire

Erica Ousley, a Class AAA All-Metro selection last year, took something of a back seat to junior guard Brandi James, and freshman inside force Erica Watkins on Sunday as the Bulldogs crushed Bolton, 61-36, in an opening-round Dragon Fire Tournament game at Houston.

Ousley, a 5-6 guard being looked at by Memphis, Mississippi State and Middle Tennessee, scored eight points in the opening quarter, and eight the rest of the game for 16 -- well off her season's average of 22.2 a year ago.

Did it bother her? "I've never had this much help, and it's great," Ousley said.

James, a slashing guard, took over late in the second period. She dished off three nifty baseline assists in an 8-2 closing run that gave the Bulldogs (10-1) a 33-25 lead at the break. Then in the third quarter, she scored nine of her game-high 22 points, capped by a 35-foot bank shot from near the right sidelines at the buzzer. It came after she inbounded the ball to Ousley, who fired the ball right back.

Nina Davis continues to impress


Photo Credit: Mark Lewis Hoopgurlz


















Central freshman Nina Davis has turned herself into a national player. Nina dominated in middle school and she is starting to dominate against national ranked teams and players. Solidifying herself as a major D1 prospect and she has 3 more years to go in high school. That is Scary!!!

Here's what Peach State Hoops had to say about Nina after her Day 2 performance at the Nike Tournament of Champions.

Davis has been a constant through two games and the 5-10 sophomore wing almost helped her team knock off St. Mary's on Saturday. She's a good athlete, strong and makes plays on both ends. Add that to her ability to rebound the ball from the wing and she is a Division One player three years from now for sure.

Day 2 Central at Nike Tournament of Champions

image from Peach State Hoops website


Central lost to number ESPN Hoopgurlz HS Nation #1 ranked St. Mary's (Stockton, Calif.) by 3 points. Here's a short recap from Hoopgurlz.

No. 1 St. Mary's (Stockton, Calif.), had a much tougher time shaking No. 9 Memphis Central (Memphis, Tenn.) 76-73.

The Warriors jumped out to a quick 8-0 lead on St. Mary's before senior Alle Moreno scored 11 points in a minute and a half, giving the Rams a quick edge. But St. Mary's was never able to fully distance itself from the young, tenacious Memphis Central squad, which was led by 25 points from sophomore Nina Davis.

Senior Allie Gibson hit the eventual game-winning bucket with 58 seconds remaining and Afure Jemerigbe pulled down three of her team-high nine rebounds during the final minute keep an easy bucket out of the hands of Memphis Central.

Today the Tournament of Champions took the day off and will resume on Monday, December 21, 2009. Central will be playing in the 5th place bracket at 1200pm (Memphis Time) against Mt. Lebanon (PA). Mt. Lebanon is ranked 6th in the ESPN Hoopgurlz HS Nation Top 25.

Danielle Ballard turns heads at Nike Tournament of Champions
















After Day 1 of the Nike Tournament of Champions, ESPN Hoopgurlz picked 3 players to highlight. Central sophomore Danielle Ballard was 1 of the 3.

Memphis Central High School starts a youthful, yet explosive backcourt of sophomores Danielle Ballard and Aaliyah Whiteside and freshman Nina Davis. All bring something to the table that's different. Against H.D. Woodson on Day One of the Nike TOC, Ballard stood out, even though Whiteside led all scorers with 18 points.


The start for Ballard was a bit rocky. Her aggressive style against a fresh and well-placed defense led to over-penetration and some blocked shots but as the game wore on her style helped control the tempo and flow of the game. As defenders legs grew weaker, hers seemed to get stronger. The help defense simply couldn't react quickly enough to stop the 5-foot-8 guard. Whenever they did, she elevated and scored with floaters and off-balance runners. She plays taller than her listed height and already plays with the strength of a college player.


Ballard seems to be more comfortable playing almost exclusively on the wing this year as opposed to a year ago when she was playing a lot of point guard. The lefty is shooting the ball from behind the 3-point arc with more confidence. She has a swagger about her.


Defensively Ballard is pretty solid both on the ball and jumping passing lanes. There is another level she can reach with her natural gifts. Her physical style could lead her to be a lock down defender if she so chooses. She traps aggressively in head coach Nicco Bray's pressure defenses without too many silly reaching fouls and can anticipate the pass out of the trap well as well. There aren't many times when she's not the best player on the court and as she plays so will her teammates so being more vocal on the court, especially on the defensive end could be key to Memphis Central's ascent among the nation's elite high school teams in the coming years. The offense seems to take care of itself.


Click here for the complete Tip Sheet

Here's what Peach State Hoops said about her:

Ballard - 5-foot-8 Class of 2012 point guard - showed the skill to get from first gear to fifth gear in 3.4 seconds on Friday night. The Ronika Ransford-less H.D. Woodson Lady Warriors didn't have a roadblock. Ballard got into the lane at well finishing herself and setting the table for her teammates as well. Ballard is a top-flight player and with a consistent jumper to match, she'd be a lock to be one of the country's Top 10 propsects nationwide.

Ridgeway-White Station Report - December 18, 2009

Ridgeway exploited something about White Station tonight. If you stop Carnecia, you stop White Station. Ridgeway had the "D" on White Station especially senior Carnecia Williams. They were stuck to here like glue. White Station was not getting many shots up, as a matter of fact, they managed only 3 points in the 1st quarter.

Senior Adrian Sanders started the offense off for Ridgeway with a 3 from the corner. Junior Hasina Muhammad backed her up with 4 points and freshman Odegua Oigbokie had 8 points in the quarter. Ridgeway finished the 1st quarter with 15 points compared to White Station's 3.

White Station had a run here and there but this game was pretty much Ridgeway. Freshman post Odegua Oigbokie probably had a career night with 20 points and 10 rebounds. She was just relentless on the boards and offensively everything seem to fall in the basket. Hasina Muhammad was all over the court getting steals and blocking shots. She used the fourth quarter to work on her post skills posting up a smaller guard on several possessions. She finished with 14 points, 6 steals and 5 blocks. Adrian Sanders had 9 points and 5 rebounds but it was her defensive efforts on Carnecia Williams that stood out.

Ridgeway defeat White Station 49-30.

White Station (30) -- Red Payne 2, Breanna Ridgell 12, Chetavia Rutherford 2, Jasmine Settles 1, Durnya Shields 2, Carnecia Williams 11.

Ridgeway (49) -- Chasity Hamilton 4, Hasina Muhammad 14, Odegua Oigbokie 20, Adrian Sanders 9, Tequila Stanton 2.

December is a stage for girls' basketball

Each December, the thoroughbreds of girl's high school basketball teams make the Nike Tournament of Champions (TOC) in Chandler, Ariz., the marquis event for their sport. The tournament earned its reputation with steady growth over the years. The lineup has featured the participation of 84 teams that went on to earn their respective state championships that particular season. Ten of those teams went on to be voted as national champions in those respective years.

This year's Joe Smith Division (the strongest of 12 separate brackets) features 16 teams, nine of which are currently ranked in the ESPN HoopGurlz HS Nation Top 25. Making it a truly national event is the fact that 12 of the 16 spots in the Smith Division represent different states.

Hamilton - Douglas Report

Saturday evening i took a trip back home. To a place that holds a lot of memories for me. I stayed many long days there. Our class laid the championship foundation. We were lead by Coach Robert Newman, now at Melrose. There was a lot of sweat and tears during those days. At this place, I learned the philosophy of "No Excuses". I learned what INTENSITY is. I learned that quitting wasn't an option. I learned about excellence. I also learned about tradition. My aunts, uncle, and dad graduated from this place. My dad met my mom here. My grandmother taught at the elementary school. Ironically, my grandmother taught Coach Newman. My younger sisters followed me here.

See these days, all you hear is the negative. But this place is home to a lot of professionals and role models --people known and unknown. This place is home to many FUTURE professionals and role models. As I end my journey down memory lane and officially began the report. I only have to say 3 words and only a few will understand.
LOVE HAMILTON...................ABSOLUTELY!!!!



Hamilton lost a lot of talent due to transfers this season. Then their starting point guard junior Jasmine Farmer sustains an early injury that has keep her out of the lineup. Could it get any worst for first year coach, Fredric Stringer...

Well, Jasmine Farmer is back and the team has went 1-0 since her return and looking to make it 2-0 against Douglas. Tonight it was total team effort that got the victory for the Hamilton Wildcats. Junior shooting guard Malynda Hull actually had an off night but her teammates picked up the slack early. She did finish with 15 points and 7 rebounds. I know!! Just imagine if she hadn't had an off night. Jasmine Farmer was unstoppable penetrating to the basket making her way to 18 points and 7 rebounds. Junior forward Dianna Johnson was a work horse tonight hitting 10 points and grabbing 16 rebounds for a double double.

Sixteen rebounds is big. But what if I told you that someone had more rebounds than that. Douglass junior forward Amber Terry grabbed 20 rebounds. Yes, I said TWENTY! Top scorer for Douglas was junior point guard Chantonia Dye with 25 points.

Hamilton defeated Douglas 55-51.

Millington Warms Up Late to Knock Off Craigmont

Stan Gatlin was just hoping something could be done about the chilly conditions in Craigmont’s gymnasium.


So moments before Friday night’s tipoff, the Millington girls basketball coach walked over to the scorer’s table and pleaded with Craigmont coach Tim Anderson to turn up the heat.


“Hey coach, I know the economy is tight,” Gatlin said. “But give me a little heat, man.”

Whitehaven - Fairley Report



Whitehaven was the place to be on Friday evening. Fairley made the short trip down Shelby Drive and Elvis Presley to take on the Tigers. The DJ was jamming. Whitehaven's newly formed Pep Squad was loud and obnoxious. And the fans (students) were pouring into the gym.

It took 1 hour and 40 minute and 6 players fouling out (3 for each team) to determine the winner of this one. I LOVE THIS GAME!!

The game started off pretty slow. Whitehaven was in a zone and Fairley took their time on offense. It seemed as if Fairley was too patience on offense making a pass too many giving up wide open shots and settling for difficult ones. However, it didn't hurt Fairley too much with the first quarter ending with the score being 10-9 Whitehaven.

Whitehaven made some defensive adjustments during the second quarter and it caught Fairley off guard. Whitehaven changed their defense up seemed like every time down the court. They would present a zone. Or they would trap. Or even play man to man. Fairley could not adjust and only managed 4 points the entire quarter. The score was 23-13 Whitehaven at the half.

Fairley's senior Erica Ousley turned it up during the third and pretty much kept her team in the game. She got to the basket effortlessly over and over and over again scoring 13 points in the quarter. It only helped the Bulldogs get within 8 but they had the momentum.

At the beginning of the fourth, Fairley gave Whitehaven some defensive medicine of their own with a full court press. They went on a 5-2 run to cut the lead down to 3 and forced a Whitehaven timeout. After the timeout, Fairley continued their run to take the lead 43-42...But as Fairley's momentum was continuing to build their offensive weapon Erica Ousley fouled out the game with 4:18 remaining.



Would Fairley be able to pull off a victory on Whitehaven's home court with whistle happy refs, an obnoxious and loud pep squad and a gym full of Whitehaven students... And would anybody step up to the offensive plate... Let me introduce you to Fairley junior Brandi James. Brandi picked up where Erica left off. It wasn't easy. It was probably the longest 4th quarter in history. Just Kidding!

Brandi had key steals, shots and free throws to lead Fairley to victory. She scored 15 points, had 5 rebounds and 2 steals in the fourth alone finishing the game with 18 points, 12 rebounds, 3 blocks and 2 steals. Freshman Erica Watkins also had 3 key rebounds during the circus like fourth quarter. You just had to be there!!!

Fairley gave Whitehaven their second lost of the season 55-51.


Fairley (55) -- Brandi James 18, Daniece Jamison 2, Saraya Maxwell 7, Erica Ousley 24, Erica Watkins 4.

Whitehaven (51) -- Keonda Fields 14, Jessica Howard 1, Amber Nelson 4, Kenesha Odom 3, Nikki Orr 12, Terrica Robinson 2, Tenesha Wright 12, D. Malone 3.

Southwind - White Station Report


Coach Surina Dixon has returned from the collegiate ranks and is back as Southwind's head girls basketball coach. She has turned the program back around leading the squad into this game with a 6-0 record according to the latest Commercial Appeal Box Score.

This Southwind team is a seasoned squad and they came out on fire. They are long, fast, and athletic. The full court pressure got to White Station in the beginning of the game and helped Southwind jump out to a 16-13 lead after the first quarter.

Second quarter Southwind's offense left the building and Brianna Ridgell helped guide White Station to a 30-21 lead going into halftime with 8 points, 2 rebounds and a steal in the quarter.

Second half pretty much belonged to White Station's Carnecia Williams. The last time I saw this young lady play was the White Station-Overton match up. She seemed a little uncomfortable in her new role as starter and go to player. Tonight, she looked liked a completely different player with confidence in overdrive. She was unstoppable. In the 3rd quarter alone she had 10 points, 4 rebounds, 2 blocks and 1 steal. At one point in the game, after being fouled and making her way to the free throw line, it looked as if she was shaking her head emphasizing that she could not be stopped. And she couldn't. Southwind did not have a solution for the Mississippi State signee. She finished with 26 points, 9 rebounds, 2 blocks and 2 steal.

White Station gave Southwind their first lost of the season. 54-39
