Fall Exposure League Week 2 Recap

Week 2 of the Fall Exposure League featured a player putting on a show, a shooting fest, and some of the younger players stepping up their game. Dodge City Community College out of Kansas was also in the building to check out the talent.

JoAnna Smith with Lay Up
Southaven's junior guard, JoAnna Smith (N.M.B. Hoop Dreams), came today to prove a point. She is not only athletic as displayed last week. She is agressive and powerful. Scoring in a variety of ways: off steals, in transition, behind the 3 point line. She finished with 22 points and 5 steals. She is a very entertaining player to watch. Southaven has so many weapons and will be on my list of teams to watch this season.

Victoria "Torri"  Lewis,  2015 ESPN Watch List

Nationally-known Victoria Lewis (MHEA/Team Tennessee Glory), freshman guard, put up 23 points from 10 of 15 shooting from the field. This young lady is not only a gifted shooter. She is smart with the ball and will shock opponents with her blocking abilities. Two more freshman to keep an eye on is Emanye Robertson and Breanna Cowans. Freshman combo guard Emanye Robertson (White Station/TEAM TEnnessee Glory) is going to be something special. She has a motor that keeps going. She is great at getting up the floor fast with the ball. She likes to distribute the ball first but can score. Breanna Cowans (Germantown/TEAM Tenness Glory) can shoot the cover off the basketball. Going 3 for 5 behind the 3 point line and 2 for 2 at the free throw line for 13 total points.

Tennessee squad defeated Connecticut 49-25 (l to r) Sidney Smith (10 pts), Raylan Starks (14 pts), Taylor Harmon (8pts), Sam McColgan (7 pts), Emanye Robertson (9 pts)

The sophomores put on a show also. Amber Braxton (Collierville/Lady Bobcats) was a complete surprise for me. She is a 5'10 combo forward. She can play inside and out. She has three point shooting range, ball handling abilities and just has a gift for being in the right place at the right time to score. Guard Aysha Harris (Houston/Lady Bobcats) gets into the paint over and over and over again and to the free throw line. She absolutely loves to penetrate into the lanes. She lead her team with 13 points. Post Brittney Becton (Collierville/Lady Bobcats) went up against a senior today and she showed no fear. She battled against one of the most versatile post players in the city, senior Jasmine McAllister (Southwind/Memphis Bobcats -Platinum). Jasmine is a very mobile post. She can face up and shoot and also take a defender off the dribble.
