Team Penny Girls 17U Champions at USJN Windy City



 Congratulations to Team Penny 17U squad!! They traveled to Illinois last weekend to participate in the USJN Windy City tournament and left as champions. Check out what Blue Star Media said about their performance.


Team Penny Captures Pools I-J

Team Penny 17 Black from Tennessee defeated Wisconsin Flight Elite 17 Adidas to win the title for Pools I-J, showing off their offensive skills in a high-scoring semifinal victory before using their defense to win the finale.

“We love to press, we love to get out and run, and we give a lot of help defense,” coach Andre Pruitt said. "Scoring, we don’t have a problem with scoring, we just have to stay on them about defense.”

Team Penny isn’t lacking talent.

“We have a newcomer, Tesia Thompson (2017), that nobody knows about. A big guard, she’s hard to stop going to the goal,” Pruitt said.

“Our shooter, in the semifinal game, Selena Pruitt (2017), had like 10 threes. Antoinette Lewis (2017) controls the paint for us. We have to get on her every now and then, but she has a lot of colleges after her.

“Myah Leflore (2017), she’s a driver to the goal, with a mid-range pull-up. Damiah Griffin (2017) has a mid-range jump shot and she can play inside also. She can handle the ball very well. She controls the floor for us.”

This is the third year that former NBA star Penny Hardaway has sponsored the team.

“What he’s doing for these girls, nobody has done this for girls basketball in Memphis for like five or 10 years,” Pruitt said. “We’re willing to travel and come north so all the colleges will see them. They think that most girls out of Memphis don’t want to leave that area. That’s why we come.”
