Girls Prep Basketball Preseason Dandy Dozen Preview

image and article from Commercial Appeal


1. Olive Branch
Last year: 32-2 (lost to Horn Lake in MHSAA 6A championship game)
Outlook: After two straight runner-up finishes, this looks like the year the Lady Quistors finally bring home the title. Reigning Pepsi Best of the Preps player of the year Myah Taylor (Mississippi State commitment) averaged 27.3 points, 8.7 assists and 6.0 steals through the first three games and 5-8 sophomore Mahogany Vaught averaged 23.7. Savanna Geeslin is a terrific long-range shooter who complements the big two, and the bench will get better as the year progresses.

2. Overton
Last year: 24-4 (lost to Bartlett in AAA sectionals)
Outlook: Missing the state tournament meant a down year for the Wolverines, but don't expect them to miss this season. Kyla Green returns after leading the team in scoring (15 ppg) and rebounding (8 pg). Rodrea Echols (Oklahoma State) and Kayla Williams (Wichita State) are the other leaders of a close-knit group that is embracing its high expectations.

3. Arlington
Last year: 26-10 (lost to Morristown West in AAA state quarterfinals)
Outlook: After their first taste of state play in 2014, the Tigers will be hungry for a return to Murfreesboro. The talent is certainly there — Raegyn Branch (Wake Forest) and Tori Sewell (Arkansas State) are future D-1 players, and senior forward Ashley Lee should improve on last year's 6 points per game average. There's good depth too.

4. Bartlett
Last year: 22-11 (lost to Murfreesboro Oakland in AAA state quarterfinals)
Outlook: The Panthers' hopes for a return trip to state rest with senior Charity Savage, who has committed to Middle Tennessee State and has a strong claim to being the best player in Shelby County. Jessica Jackson is a very capable floor leader; Nyla Smith and Stella Gill also have plenty of starting experience.

5. Horn Lake
Last year: 29-4 (won MHSAA 6A championship)
Outlook: Standouts Alexyse Thomas and Rodneshia Martin are gone, but the Eagles still have plenty of talent as they go for a three-peat in MHSAA 6A. Tae'Lour Richardson, a 5-9 senior who has committed to Eastern Kentucky, will carry much of the load until other players adjust to bigger roles.

6. Northpoint
Last year: 24-7 (lost to Knoxville Webb in Division 2-A state semifinals)
Outlook: The Trojans have made three straight state trips and this year's team could be better than any of those. Ashtyn Baker (12.1 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 4 apg, 4.1 steals) and sharpshooter Lauren Gross (15.9 ppg, 7.3 rpg) lead four returning starters who will be joined by talented newcomers Jade Wells and Lindsey Whiteside.

7. Craigmont
Last year: 26-8 (lost to McMinn Central in AA state quarterfinals)
Outlook: The Chiefs return several key players from last year's team that won 15 in a row before a state tournament loss. Guard Danielle Conley will contend for player of the year honors, and Daja Scurlock (6-1) and Morgan Morris (5-10) form a fine inside combo.

8. Houston
Last year: 19-8 (lost to White Station in quarterfinals of Region 8-AAA tournament)
Last year: A good group of returning veterans led by Louisiana Tech signee Jaida Roper will make the Mustangs dangerous. Junior Shannon Sharp should be better this year, but what really makes Houston exciting is the arrival of freshman sensation Jayla Hemingway, who dropped 32 on Bolton in the season opener last week.

9. MHEA
Last year: 33-5 (won home school national championship)
Outlook: Torri Lewis and her 3,000-plus career points are at Ole Miss, but the Eagles won't fall far. Three-point ace Jamie Crum is the top returnee, and sophomore Lindsey Vaughn was the home school sixth man of the year. Games against Central, Ridgeway and Briarcrest will be good tests.

10. Ridgeway
Last year: 26-2 (lost to Arlington in AAA sectionals)
Outlook: Few teams lost as much to graduation as the Roadrunners, who won 26 straight before losing their last two. But Illinois signee Brandi Beasley, a Miss Basketball finalist last season, is back for her senior year along with promising sophomore Elizabeth Dixon.

11. Central
Last year: 19-11 (lost to Overton in semifinals of Region 8-AAA tournament)
Outlook: Central made big strides with a freshman-heavy team last year and should be even better in 2015-16. UAB signee Miyah Barnes leads a team that loves to push the pace and knock down 3-pointers.

12. Harding
Last year: 25-7 (lost to Franklin Road Academy in Division 2-A state semifinals)
Outlook: Always a threat to reach state, the Lions will depend heavily on Antoinette Lewis and Anna Horner, who averaged double-doubles last year.

Others to watch
Briarcrest: Graduated a ton of talent the last two seasons but still will be formidable.
Mitchell: Derenisha Taylor and newcomer Vertonia Bady will make the Tigers tough.
Munford: Sophomore Gabby Crawford leads a squad with a lot of promise.
Raleigh-Egypt: 6-3 Old Dominion signee Manaya Jones leads the Pharaohs as they challenge Craigmont in AA.
West Memphis: Four starters return from a 17-9 team.
White Station: First-year coach Tommy Warren is a proven winner.

How Baylor and coach Kim Mulkey have maintained big-time success

Junior Nina Davis is the reigning Big 12 player of the year and was a WBCA All-American in 2015.




"Coming in as a freshman, I didn't expect it to be this way," said Davis, a junior from Memphis, Tennessee. "I don't know if fan support or tradition was something I really paid that much attention to; I just liked the school and the coaches. But Baylor Nation is great, we have fans who travel all over, and it just makes you play harder. You don't want to let the fans down.

"It means so much to be part of what Coach Mulkey has built, and it's a lot of motivation that we have won [the Big 12 tournament] five times in a row. You don't want to be the one who lets it get away."                   --Nina Davis

Gabby Crawford, GiGi Lewis, Jamirah Shutes shine at Coach Hemi Fall Workout

Back in October, some Memphis area players participated in Coach Hemi's Fall Workout. Several of the players from the 2018 class stood out. Here's what they had to say:


Gabby Crawford – Munford HS (TN)

Gabby Crawford 100The left-handed forward made a great first impression at the camp. Her mobility and activity translates into productivity. She showed range on her jumper in drills as well as in game play. Standing at 6-foot-2, look for her to be a standout while playing with coach Eric Daniels on the summer travel circuit.




GiGi Lewis – MHEA Homeschool (MS)

Gigi Lewis 100Lewis is a left-handed point guard who does a good job of involving her teammates in the offense. She showed poise and skill at the camp in October. Look for her game to expand as she matures physically.





Jamirah Shutes – Haywood HS (TN)

Jamirah Shutes 100Shutes is an aggressive guard with the ball in her hands. She pressed the issue from the point position and made positive things happen all weekend long. In a game that is dominated by point guard play, Shutes is a prospect to track in future evaluations.

ClarionLedger.com Preseason Super 10 Rankings

image and article from ClarionLedger.com
Mahogany Vaught with ball


1. Olive Branch32-2
The Buzz: The Lady Quistors have a big chip on their shoulders after losing the state championship to Horn Lake in back-to-back years. Blake Jones returns a loaded squad that looks to get over the hump and finally win the 6A title with Mississippi State commit Myah Taylor, the reigning Mississippi Gatorade Player of the Year, sharp-shooter Savanna Geeslin and sophomore Mahogany Vaught, who has been a key member on varsity since she was an eighth-grader.
2. Horn Lake29-4
The Buzz: Jana Thompson’s team seeks its third straight state title this season. It won’t be easy with the departure of All-State selections Alexyse Thomas and Rodneshia Martin, but Horn Lake has depth where it counts. Eastern Kentucky commit Tae’Lour Richardson will be expected to carry a big scoring load after averaging 9.8 points last season.
3. Starkville25-5
The Buzz: The Lady Jackets’ come-from-behind win to beat Hattiesburg in the 6A quarterfinals was one of the most exciting moments in Mississippi girls basketball last year. Kristie Williams has tremendous depth returning this season with a core group of seniors and junior standout Kelsey Jones. Starkville won Region 3-6A the past two years and is primed for another district championship and run toward Jackson.
4. Natchez24-1
The Buzz: The Lady Bulldogs rule Class 5A after locking up state titles in back-to-back seasons. Natchez returns depth and size in the post and wings with Zyaire Ewing and Skylar Morgan after only losing one game early last year to Brandon.
5. Terry24-8
The Buzz: Despite being young and inexperienced in 2014-15, Terry still managed to make it to the quarterfinals of the MHSAA championships before falling to eventual 6A champion Horn Lake. The Lady Bulldogs are on their third coach in three seasons (Angelina Johnson) but possess depth and size down low and return one of the state’s top guards in Nyah Tate.
6. Hattiesburg25-3
The Buzz: The Lady Tigers reached the Big House for the first time since 2010 after sweeping through the regular season. Tamia Stinson steps into the role held by sharp-shooting guard Jazmin Boyd and looks to take an experienced Hattiesburg team one step further in the state championship playoffs.
7. Velma Jackson27-5
The Buzz: The Lady Falcons made a run in the state tournament last year with six freshmen on their roster. Velma Jackson is fast, athletic and has enough in the tank to be among the favorites to battle with reigning champ Belmont in 3A. Tyasia Willis has led her team to the playoffs every year since she was a freshman by averaging a double-double each season.
8. Callaway21-6
The Buzz: Twila Hill and Tiara Robbins are going to cause problems for the teams Callaway faces. The Lady Chargers may not have a ton of guard depth but know how to play physical in the post.
9. West Harrison 24-2
The Buzz: The Lady Canes return Mississippi’s top post player in Ameshya Williams and a group that dominated its opponents on the Coast and only lost two games last season. Teams are often met with a mismatch when facing West Harrison. That shouldn’t change this year.
10. Lanier15-13
The Buzz: The Lady Bulldogs stumbled several times during the regular season but managed to make a run into the postseason. Top senior guard Brittany Rose returns to help Lanier get back to the Big House. Things should get interesting with crosstown foe Provine moving into 4-5A.

MaxPreps 2015-16 Mississippi Preseason Girls Basketball Fab 5

1. Olive Branch
Head coach: Blake Jones
2014-15 record: 32-2

The Conquistadors lost to Horn Lake in the 6A title game for the second-consecutive year, and Jones will have his team ready to contend once again in 2015-16. Myah Taylor, a 5-foot-7 all-state guard, was sensational last season as a sophomore, averaging 18 points, eight assists and five steals per game. She'll lead the charge in what they hope is a title season.

2. Horn Lake
Head coach: Janna Thompson
2014-15 record: 29-4

The Eagles won their second-straight 6A title by beating Olive Branch, led by Alexyse Thomas' 17 points and nine boards. Thompson will have a tall task in replacing the production of Thomas and fellow all-state selection Rodneyshia Martin, but Tae'Lour Richardson — who scored 11 in the title game — will likely step up.

3. Natchez
Head coach: Alphaka Moore
2014-15 record: 24-1

Natchez took home a second-consecutive 5A title last season with a 74-66 win over West Jones after trailing by 13 in the first quarter. The Bulldogs are back in a big way this season, with all-state guard Zyaire Ewing looking to improve on a junior season in which she averaged 12.8 points and six rebounds per game.

4. Callaway (Jackson)
Head coach: Stacey Bailey
2014-15 record: 21-6

Callaway may be known for its boys program, but overlooking the Chargers would be a mistake. Bailey's squad lost to West Jones in the 5A semifinals, but returning all-state forward Twila Hill will likely improve on her averages of 17.1 points, 11.3 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game, making Callaway a formidable opponent.

5. Hattiesburg
Head coach: Caronica DeBose Jackson
2014-15 record: 26-3

The Tigers saw a late lead evaporate in a devastating loss to Starkville in the 6A quarterfinals, making them even hungrier this season. Coach Jackson loses all-stater Jazmin Boyd, but returns an experienced squad ready to prove that last season's bitter loss was nothing but a fluke.

Additional content, including stories and video interviews will be available on espnW. ESPN The Magazine will be conducting interviews. NCAA media and social media outlets will also produce original content.

Tamia Jones - White Station - 5'10 - F - 2017

This is probably the biggest highlight project I’ve created in terms of the length of footage (I went through 4 games.) and the talent level.

Tamia Jones is an extremely multidimensional player. She is 5’10 and can play both the guard and post positions. So I wanted to display all the skills she has: short jumper, slashing, ability to guard on the perimeter, athleticism, quick hands, rebounding, transition ball handling and shot blocking.
