Think Pink Tournament Recap

I attended the Think Pink Memorial Tournament on Saturday. The Think Pink Tournament is hosted by the Lady Tarheels organization. It was started to celebrate the Lady Tarheel's founder Rachel Dorsey's sister, Stephnie Dorsey, who she lost to breast cancer.

In the high school division, the Idlewild Fury and Mississippi Fire game was a great matchup and showcased some talented players. The game needed overtime to determine the winner and Idlewild came out victorious by 4 with a score of 51-47.

Idlewild's Rising junior, Jamille Reed (Manassas), lead their scorers with 17 points and 10 rebounds. This 5'9 G/F was unstoppable. She has a nose for where the basketball will be whether it's anticipating a pass or grabbing a rebound. Defense was unable to stop her on the post. Her agility and spin move allowed her to get to the basket and get buckets over and over and over again. Second in scoring was rising sophomore, Candice Davis (Craigmont), with 9 points. She is a 5'3 combo guard who can set up teammates but is best at getting set up and dropping jump shots.

Mississippi Fire has some talent on their squad. At 5'11 rising junior Corbin Divinity finished with 17 points. If her muscular body build does not impress you, her vertical will. She just explodes off the floor. Her outside shot could use tweeking but at the free throw line she's on point making 7 out of 9. A name you will definitely hear about out of Mississippi is rising 9th grader, Kybria Keys. She currently stands at 5'11 and uses her height and skills to rebound grabbing 9 during the game. Rising 11th grader Symantha Banks is a 3 point shooter but don't be fooled she can explode to the rim.
