Final 2012 Fall Exposure League Recap

The second Fall Exposure League featured over 50 players from Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, and even Alabama. It was a great environment for basketball players to get a jump start on the 2012-13 season.


UConn finished the league undefeated going 4-0. The team members were Kyra Pryor (Schilling Farms, 2017, not pictured), Amber Holmes (Overton, 2014, not pictured ), Katie Conner (St. Agnes, 2013), Karneisha Trent (Wooddale, 2014), Rachelle Parks (Middleton, 2015), Deja Faulkner (Middleton, 2015), Chrishona Reddix (Olive Branch, 2016), Tatiana Love (St. Agnes, 2015), Kaylan Pugh (St. Mary's, 2015, not pictured ) and Jayla Hemingway (Schilling Farms, 2019, not pictured ).

Who's That Girl 
It was hard to not notice her and the energy she plays with. She was always around the basketball - getting rebounds, making plays to score and getting to the free throw line. Jamie Crum is an 8th grade point guard for MHEA. She averaged 11 points with a game high of 19 during week 3.

Action Packed

Three of the most exciting players to watch during the league all come from the same summer travel team, Team Memphis Elite-Holmes. All are juniors and all consistently play at a high level. A'Queen Hayes and Olivia Cunningham are dynamic duo guards from Southaven (MS). They play at a fast pace up the floor and off the floor as they jump up for rebounds, loose balls and deflections. Both are ball handlers, have 3 point range and can easily get by defenders to make buckets in the paint. A'Queen averaged 16.5 points during the league and Olivia averaged 18.

Karneisha Trent at 5'9 is listed as a forward for Wooddale, however, she displayed during the league that transitioning to the guard position should not be a problem. She is one of the most athletic and agile players with abilities to slash and maneuver through traffic. She has a nice stroke and can make the 3 point shot. She averaged 15.5 points per game.
