Super 80 Fall League Finals is Set!

The Super 80 Semifinals was a fight with the Comets and Shock coming out on top to battle for the championship.

In Game 1, the Sparks, Ashley Tate (Ridgeway), came back to the league from a brief absence last week with a vengence. During the first half, she frustrated the Comets and scored at will knocking down 18 points and grabbing 9 rebounds at 5'5. She also showed her unselfishness with a couple of no look passes converting into assists.

However, the Comets turned it on in the second half and stepped up their defense making it extremely difficult for Ashley to penetrate into the paint. Jasmine Robinson (Overton) and Candis Clear (East) took over on the offensive end for the Comets.

Box Score:
Comets 50
Candis Clear 20 Points 3 Rebounds 1 Steal
Jasmine Robinson 14 Points 3 Steals
Chanera Maclin 7 Points 6 Rebounds 2 Steals 1 Block
Arika Bady 6 Points 2 Steals
Erin Raliet 1 point 1 Rebound

Game 2 was pretty even throughout the entire game. Liberty's Christyn Hopper (Arlington) and Shock's Hasina Muhammad (White Station) both lead their teams at the half with 9 points.

It came down to the last seconds of the game with Kenesha Jackson (Wooddale) getting a steal and making an excellent pass to Shervonte' Bright (Hamilton) to score the buzzer beating layup.

Flashback: Andrea Holmes, Jakena Jordan

Former Mitchell standout, Andrea Holmes is settling in at Binghamton University in New York.

Not a lot of people know about Jakena Jordan out of Kingsbury. This young lady was a fearless slasher and was at one point a Top 10 scorer in the city. I hear she should be lacing it up at Southwest TN Community College.

Check out the video.
