Taelor Manning, Savanna Owens, Madison Griggs, Jayla Hemingway shine at Coach Hemi 2016 Spring Showcase

Here's what NEB Media had to say about Taelor Manning, Savanna Owens, Madison Griggs, Jayla Hemingway:

Taelor Manning (2017), 5’8 G, White Station HS, Memphis, TN – Manning was a very smooth guard that came with some skill. She showcased her ability to see the floor well and played unselfish basketball setting her teammates up for easy buckets. Manning was also a threat from the outside with the ability to knock down an occasional three. Her athleticism also made her a stingy defender on the ball while being active away from the ball.

Savanna Owens (2018), 5’9 PG, Briarcrest Christian School, Memphis, TN – Owens was one of the better point guard’s at the Hemi Showcase this year. Owens runs the true point guard role and did very well in doing so. She did a great job of finding teammates, but also kept the defender true by scoring at the basket when given the opportunity. Savanna’s athleticism and quick feet also made her one of the better on-ball defenders at the event.

Madison Griggs (2019), 5’8 G, Houston HS, Memphis, TN – Griggs was another newcomer to the event and performed well over the two day event. Griggs displayed tons of athleticism that was matched with an impressive offensive game. Madison handled the ball very well against pressure, scored off the drive, as well as hitting shots from the outside. Griggs’ stock is up after this event and is a player that could find herself in some national rankings list.

Jayla Hemingway (2019), 5’10 G, Houston HS, Memphis, TN – Jayla continued to impress all media outlets that were at the Hemi Showcase. The thing about Jayla is that despite her already being an elite player, she continues getting better or adding something to her game each time we see her. This time it was the improvement of her ball handling as well as a quicker release on her shot. Jayla continues to solidify herself as a top 10 player in the country in her class.
