Collierville High Girls Basketball Revival

Collierville High School got 2 BIG additions this summer.

Sisters, Victoria and Ashley Jones, comes to Memphis from the Nashville area.

Victoria, 5'10, is a beast on the court. She is not passive by any means. She is great at putting a body on someone and an awesome passer at the post position.

Ashley, 6'2, is the gentle giant. But not that gentle....Those penetrating to the paint will learn how gentle she actually is....

Adrienne Pratcher makes Adidas Super 64 Tip Sheet

East High's, Adrienne Pratcher made her mark at the Super 64.

Here is the evaluation from ESPN Hoopgurlz Adidas Super 64 Tip Sheet.

One of the top players at the adidas Super 64, and one of the top point guards in the country, Adrienne Pratcher showed pretty much the whole package for the Memphis Lady Bobcats. Despite being just 5-6 (generously), Pratcher is solidly built and very strong, and simply goes wherever she wants to on the court. She's a superb passer with great court vision, and can go either way off the bounce -- and can finish at the rim, pulling up, or falling away. On a one-on-one fast break, Pratcher (who goes to Memphis (Tenn.) East High School) came down the right side, spun off the right block into the lane and finished with a left-handed kiss off the glass. Oh, and she has very quick hands.

Memphis Girls Basketball TV: Ashley Jones

I have to admit. I have a little favoritism towards Ashley. She is my cousin.. However, she is the real deal.. A legit post player. She is 6'2ish but plays so much taller and bigger with her long arms. She does the little things. She rotates on defense as the ball moves. She can play post defense. She has great timing on blocking shots. She blocks out for rebounds. She keeps the ball up high. And she can run the floor. If there was anything that I would say she has to work on is being more agressive.. She is a gentle giant. But not that gentle..
