Myah Taylor, Abria Gulledge make Mississippi Dandy Dozen
Olive Branch | Sophomore | Guard | 5-6
Taylor burst onto the scene as a freshman and played a key role in getting the Lady Conquistadors past West Harrison and into the Class 6A title game. The 5-foot-6 guard is a volume scorer with the ability to distribute, averaging 13.7 points, 6.2 assists and 5.2 steals per game. "She knows there's a lot she can get better at and she's just determined to improve," Olive Branch coach Blake Jones said. "It's just a given, we owe her a lot for our success last year."
H.W. Byers | Senior | Guard | 5-11
The Murray State commit reigns as H.W. Byers' leading scorer, having averaged 24 points, eight rebounds and three assists for the Class 2A-champion Lady Lions last year. Gulledge plays on both ends of the court and will transition from point guard to wing when her team needs a basket. "We've got a huge bulls eye on our back," Byers coach Jason Thompson said. "She's gotten increasingly better every year and we're looking for her to contribute in multiple ways."
