White Station 2013 Dragon Fire Invitational Champs

from Commercial Appeal

White Station captured its first Dragon Fire Invitational tournament girls basketball title Monday night at Collierville, holding on to defeat District 16-AAA rival Whitehaven, 63-59. Junior Emanye Robertson earned MVP honors, scoring 18 points for the Spartans (6-3), while sophomore Miyah Barnes added 17. Senior Laka Blache led all scorers with 24 points for the Tigers (11-2).

Marion (7-3) got 18 points from junior Dahlia Bell while three other teammates each chipped in nine as the Patriots topped Bolton 47-39 in the third-place game. They showed patience off turnovers, often scoring with short jumpers or weakside putbacks, to the surprise of coach Shunda Johnson who said “usually they try and bulldoze through.”

The young Wildcat squad, led by 5-10 sophomore forward Charity Savage, reached the semifinals before losing to eventual champion White Station. And after a rough first half Monday against Marion, the Wildcats (5-7) made a game of it before losing to Marion.

Savage scored 12 of 14 points in the second half to lead the Wildcats, and was at her best in a six-point burst with some pretty inside power moves that helped close a 31-21 deficit to 33-27 by the end of the third quarter. However, a third foul slowed her down, and ground Bolton’s attack to a halt.
“I’m happy with my rebounding and my drives to the basket,” Savage said, “but I’ve still got to work on my shot.”

Wildcats coach Jason Martin said “this type of game is hard for her when there are multiple people who can play her physical. Really, she’s a three, but we have her in the post because we don’t have anyone else to play there. She’s doing a great job, and while we didn’t show it tonight we’re getting other players who are starting to step up offensively. We did a lot of positive things this week.”

Retired Bartlett boys coach Dave Owen, who is helping Martin as a volunteer, was simple in his assessment of Savage’s potential. “D-1,” he said. “She’s got all the skills, and is putting them together.”

Arlington (9-5) ran into the Spartan buzzsaws in the second round. But the Tigers came back with consolation round wins over St. Agnes and host Collierville (5-8) to establish themselves as early favorites again to win the district title. Senior Raylin Starks scored five of her eight points down the stretch to help the Tigers break a 35-all tie and go on to a 41-37 win over the Dragons in the fifth-place game.

Arlington coach David Offerle said his team “is still a work in progress,” but was happy with their opportunistic play in the second half led by Starks, and sophomore Torrie Sewell, who had nine points.

“We’re finding ways to get it done right now,” he said.

Collierville had a chance to get the win thanks to 17 points by North Alabama-bound senior Jessica Brown. But she lost the handle on a key rebound that led to as putback by Starks to break a 35-all tie. The Dragons’ chances evaporated in the final seconds on a bad pass, something Bobby Yates has seen before this season from his rebuilding squad.

“We have the chance to make plays and we’re struggling with those chances,” said Yates, who was not on the bench Monday after being whistled for two technicals earlier in the tournament. “We’re in a tough district, and it’s going to be an uphill fight.”

Bartlett, after an opening-round win, finished eighth in the 16-team tournament, losing 52-45 to St. Agnes Monday despite 20 points from senior Shondria Scruggs, 12 in the final quarter. Caroline Cook led the Stars with 18 points, scoring six in each of the final three periods.

Savage, Starks, Brown and Scruggs made the All-Tournament team along with Cook, Juanitia Walton (Kirby), Marnesha Hamer (Fairley), Kendra Richardson (Millington), Ciara Douglas (Southwind), Shay Johnson (Byhalia), Susannah Kelley (Jonesboro), Brandy Davis (Hamilton), Danisha Turner (consolation bracket champ West Memphis), April Phelix and Antonia Motley (Marion), Blache, Maia McCoy and Tia Polk (Whitehaven), along with Robertson, Barnes, Damiah Griffin and Courtney Banks (White Station).

Kiara Golden Guard 2014 Class Double Play Highlights



Center Hill senior guard, Kiara Golden, is the first player to have before and after highlights on Memphis Girls Basketball. If you have been watching her play over the years, you will know why. She has definitely grown.   

Kiara is a lefty. In her first highlight video (as an 8th grader), I noticed how much she went left. However, I didn't notice how much she went to her strong side until after watching the second highlight  (as a senior). In her second video, she's constantly going right.

It is an unfortunate trend to watch highly talented players enter high school only to regress over the years. Kiara is not an example of that. She has grown in so many ways. 

I've already mentioned her abilities to go left and right. She is also a scorer and a distributor. She has awesome vision in the half court set and in transition. She is an unbelievable team player. Kiara can easily average 30-40 points a game. However, she would rather get her teammates involved. While she's not in the game, it's not uncommon to see her standing up cheering her team on.

Dyer County issues a challenge to Munford

 image and article from Millington-News.com

Munford's Phenicia Howard dribbles pass Dyer County defender


The last couple of years the Munford Lady Cougars have been the dominant queens of District 13-3A.

Winning two league champions and a Region title in that span, many experts were picking the Lady Cougars to make it three in row prior to the start of the 2013-14 campaign.

But the Dyer County Lady Choctaws traveled to the Munford Gymnasium last Friday night to issue a challenge for the top spot in District 13-3A. Dyer County left an impression winning 48-36.

The Lady Choctaws victory started off slow with Munford leading 6-5 after one quarter. Lady Cougar Phenicia Howard and Lindsey Owen scored the final two buckets for Munford in the opening frame to get the lead.

Dyer County opened the second quarter on a 12-0 run to take a 17-6 advantage. Alex Wherry ended Munford’s drought with a jumper in the lane. The Lady Choctaws were ahead 19-8 at the break.
The offense picked up for both teams in the third quarter the Lady Cougars outscoring Dyer County 16-11. Howard was the shooting star for Munford in the period.

The guard scored on a layup and jumper in the lane to make the score 21-14 early in the third. Then Howard displayed her long-range shooting nailing a trey to make the tally 23-17.

After Howard used a spin moved to hit a jumper in the paint the Lady Cougars trailed 23-20. Munford got to within a point when Precious Mills drove to the rim and bounced a pass to Owen for a layup.

Dyer County responded with a 7-2 run to close out the third quarter to lead 30-24.

In the fourth quarter the Lady Choctaws hit timely three-pointer to neutralize any Munford comeback effort. Dyer County only led 30-27 in the early moments of the fourth. Then the Lady Choctaws outscored the Lady Cougars 18-9 for the 12-point victory.
