2013 July Evaluation Period Play Day Recap

Bobcats Select coach, Curtis Jones, decided to put together a nice 3 team play day in preparation for the second half of the 2013 July evaluation period. The three teams included Bobcats Select, Team All In and Team Penny.

All teams feature some extremely talented 2015 and 2016 players. I'm happy I had an opportunity to really watch the players from all squads.

Attending this play day has given me an opportunity to present a new feature on Memphis Girls Basketball. It's called Po Po's Fantasy Team.

All coaches would love to have the opportunity to hand pick players for their team. However, it just does not always work that way. So when I attend events, I will provide recaps of players that stand out and make me say "she could play for me".

So I present to you, my very first FANTASY TEAM!!!!!! Yeah!

Taylor Barnes (Team Penny/St. Benedict/2016) - combo guard,  nice strong body type, quick first step, turns the corner fast, deceptively fast, prettiest stroke

Manaya Jones (Team All In/ Raleigh-Egypt/2016) - Nice size post, shot blocker, can run the floor,  back to the basket counter moves, when she decides to commit to basketball and getting in shape, she will be dangerous

Emanye Robertson (Team All In/White Station/2015) - long and wiry point guard, can dribble out of tight situations in transition, a slasher with the ball, loves to feed the post

Gazmyne Herndon (Bobcats Select/Douglas/2016)- there's something about this kid.. She is a ball handler with extremely long arms.. She plays so patiently sometimes too patiently. An extremely composed PG.. Her frame is small yet has toned arms. She is deceptively strong.

Kayla Williams
(Team Penny/Overton/2016) - a 6'1 guard with long arms and long legs. I can stop there. Developing her agility and quickness will only elevate her game. She is definitely on my watchlist to see how she develops over the next couple of years

Bobcats Select and Team All In will be attending Music City Madness and Team Penny will be attending Basketball on the Bayou.

I will be attending Music City Madness this week. Be sure to follow me at for instant updates.
