Memphis hijabi keeps her faith, hoop dreams

image and article from Commercial Appeal




She still has the poise and leadership that helped her — as a graduate student — lead Indiana State to a conference title in 2014.

She's only 26 years old, still young enough and good enough to play professionally, if not here in the U.S. then in Europe.

If only she were allowed to play.

FIBA, basketball's international governing body, bans head coverings, including turbans, yarmulkes and hijabs "for safety reasons."



Bilqis "Qisi" Abdul-Qaadir, born and raised in Massachusetts, is a Muslim American. She believes her faith asks her to dress modestly.

She chooses to honor her faith by covering her head with a scarf, or hijab. She also keeps her arms and legs covered in public.

That wasn't a problem in high school or college. In fact, as a Memphis Tiger, Qisi became the NCAA's first Division I player to wear a hijab.

President Obama invited her to the White House her freshman year.

"As an honors student, as an athlete on her way to Memphis," Obama said when he introduced her, "Bilqis is an inspiration."

She tries to be.

Banned from playing professional basketball because of her faith, Qisi has turned her attention to teaching Muslim girls how to play.

After Qisi earned her master's degree, she became athletic director at Pleasant View School, a pre-K-12 Muslim school in Bartlett.

The PVS Panthers have three teams in the East Shelby Church Recreation Association, which has more than 3,000 players under-8 through under-18.

The church league's mission is to "encourage fellowship that honors Jesus Christ," but it's multidenominational and multifaith league.

Its 330 teams include those from Germantown Parks and Rec as well as Margolin Hebrew Academy.

Some boys wear yarmulkes. Some girls wear skirts and leggings and hijabs.

"We are open to anyone and everyone," said league president Scott McClain, a coach at Hope Presbyterian Church. "We are trying to build community through basketball."

Qisi loves the league.

"They are a great organization, very welcoming and supportive," she said.

The league strives to honor the faith or nonfaith of all its members, McClain said, even in its pre-game prayers.

Not everyone gets the message.

Before a game Jan. 21, a referee admonished Qisi and her girls in the middle of the court for not believing "in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior."

"He used the word 'sin,'" Qisi said. "These girls are 9 and 10 years old. Why is he talking about sin? What does this have to do with basketball."

As the referee kept talking, Qisi's eyes welled with tears. She told her team to go to the bench. Then she asked them if they wanted to play.

They did. They won the game.

"What the referee did was so disrespectful, but Qisi handled it with dignity and grace," said Dr. Bashar Shala, a physician whose 10-year-old daughter is on the team.

Qisi expressed her frustrations live on Facebook last Sunday.

"I was hurt. I'm still hurt," she said. "This man was so angry talking to these little babies. They're babies."

Her under-12 team played again Saturday. This time, the pre-game prayer went better than the game. They lost but they never gave up.

Meanwhile, Qisi isn't giving up on FIBA, which is expected to make a statement on its hijab ban soon.

Qisi's online petition calling on FIBA to allow women to wear hijabs has gained nearly 132,000 signatures.

Her efforts are the subjects of two films. One is a documentary called "Life Without Basketball." A trailer for other, a short film called "FIBA Allow Hijabs," was released last week.

Thursday, NBA superstar LeBron James tweeted her about it: Keep doing your thing @Queen_Of_Sheeba #StriveForGreatness



She will. She loves basketball. She loves her girls even more.

Northpoint breaks Harding jinx

From Commercial Appeal

In terms of style points, it wasn't much of a success. But in terms of it's-about-time points, it was very impressive.

Jade Wells scored 14 points as Northpoint, ranked fourth in The Commercial Appeal's Dandy Dozen, battled past eighth-ranked Harding, 44-31. It's the Trojans' first victory in nine years on the Lions' home floor.

"They do a good job of defending their home court; give them an A-plus for that," said Northpoint coach Barry Gray. "They have a lot of pride here. We weren't making shots, but it says a lot that we were able to grind it out."

Neither team had its best shooting night of the year. But with Wells and Ashtyn Baker coming up with big plays down the stretch, the Trojans (15-2) put control of the regular-season region championship in their own hands. With Northpoint hosting the regional tournament as well, a return to defend their Division 2-A championship looks like a good bet.

"I think we're a little ahead of where we were (this time) last year," said Gray. "We need to develop some depth ... and stay healthy."

Harding (17-4) had cut a double-digit lead down to 37-31 late in the game but couldn't get it any closer. Baker (12 points) hit a pair of free throws then fed Wells for consecutive baskets as Northpoint closed the game on a 6-0 run.

Lindsey Whiteside had 11 for the Trojans.

Carley Rhoads led Harding with 10. South Alabama signee Antoinette Lewis was saddled with foul trouble and managed just four.

IN OTHER GAMES

Dandy Dozen No. 1 White Station improved to 16-2 with a 63-44 victory over Whitehaven. Damiah Griffin led the Spartans with 22 while Zaire Hicks and Brittni Moore each had 13. Jasmine Carson led the sixth-ranked Tigers with 18. ... Second-ranked Olive Branch (22-1) got 20 points and 7 assists from Myah Taylor in a 68-55 victory over No. 10 Southaven. Katie Blackman had 14 points and 14 rebounds. ... No. 3 Central (!6-4) limited Hamilton's Tesia Thompson — the city's leading scorer — to 13 in a 65-42 victory. Kynadi Kuykendoll led a balanced attack with 12.

The Mississippi girls rosters for the Mississippi-Alabama All-Star Games were recently announced.

The games will be played on March 17 in Montgomery, but an exact site has yet to be determined. The girls’ game starts at 5 p.m. and the boys’ start at 7 p.m.

The girls’ series is tied at 13 and Alabama leads the boys’ series, 14-12.

Mississippi claimed both games in 2016 as the Mississippi girls’ squad defeated the Alabama girls 78-77 and the Magnolia State boys’ team beat Alabama 85-83.

Whitehaven's Jasmine Carson sets 3-point record for Shelby County

From Commercial Appeal

Jasmine Carson started fast and never cooled off Thursday night.

The junior from Whitehaven scored 46 points and set a Shelby County record with 14 3-pointers as the Tigers, ranked sixth in The Commercial Appeal Dandy Dozen, defeated overmatched Overton in a 16-AAA contest, 125-30.

The 3-pointers broke the old mark of 13 set by Southwind's Bianca Cage against Kirby during the 2011-12 season.

Carson went 5 for 5 from beyond the arc and scored 17 points in the first four minutes as Whitehaven took control against an Overton team that has been depleted by the loss of a large senior class from last year and a couple of key transfer departures. She finished the game 15 of 24 from the field (13 of 22 on 3s) while adding nine assists and 11 steals.

Carson transferred to Whitehaven after helping Central advance to the AAA semifinals last year.

The national record for 3-pointers in a game is Rebecca Greenwell of Owensboro (Ky.) Catholic in 2013. Carson's total ties the state record set by Kendall Spray of Wilson Central in 2015.

Shmya Ward had 24 points and 13 rebounds for Whitehaven while Alexus Ward scored 23 with five steals.
