Freshman Lauren Douglas (Briarcrest) led Northwestern with 17 points as Northwestern cruised to an 84-27 victory over Basket Pomezia Thursday evening in Rome. Kate Popovec added 15 points for the Wildcats.

 "I thought it was a great way to open up our trip considering that we haven't touched a basketball in about a week," head coach Joe McKeown said. "I thought we did some really good things.

It was a great opportunity for everyone to play together and to look at different lineups, different combinations." Read complete story

10 Girls Basketball Recruiting Facts from The Wall Street Journal

NCSA Athletic Recruiting broke down an article written by The Wall Street Journal on the competitive world of college sports recruiting. This is what they had to say about the top 10 takeaways from the article, Competing for Scholarships on the Field and Online.

 1. Getting a good education is a big factor for aspiring college athletes “…’The driving force’ behind her dedication to the sport is “’to earn a scholarship to a top Division I school.’” The Journal uses Aleah MacKay as their example here – she loves lacrosse, but at the end of the day, she wants to play at an institution that offers good academics, too.

Taylor Lewis shows Growth

Girlz Prep Report has been keeping an eye on Taylor Lewis (Memphis Elite-Holmes) and is excited about her progress as a player.. Here is the evaluation:

As exciting as she was after completing her freshman season in high school in Arkansas, Taylor Lewis showed me exactly what I look for in players and that's growth at Basketball on the Bayou. Already having the knowledge to understand the game and run a team, she stepped into the rotation with the Memphis Elite and paid dividends immediately. A high energy player that plays the same way on both ends, Lewis can give you points in bunches, either by scoring or assisting while throwing in some lock down D.

Hasina Muhammad scores 24 in Australian Open

image from

The Tigers struggled to find the basket Tuesday night, shooting just 32 percent against the WNBL's Logan Thunder in the first game of the Auburn women's basketball team's Australian Tour. Auburn lost 86-54 to the Thunder behind a game-high 24 points from Hasina Muhammad (Ridgeway).

"We had a hard time shooting the ball tonight, but this is a learning experience for all of us," said first-year Auburn head coach Terri Williams-Flournoy. "We are still learning more and more about the team and they are still learning about it. This is going to be a process."

The hometown Thunder never trailed, jumping out to a 13-7 lead after the first quarter. Logan built its lead to 42-25 at halftime before extending to the 86-54 final score.

 "Hats off to Logan, they have a great group of players as we saw tonight," said Williams-Flournoy. "They have some great shooters and a bright future ahead."

 Muhammad was 8-of-17 from the field and 8-of-10 from the free-throw line for her 24 points. She also tallied team highs of four assists and three steals. She was joined in double figures by Blanche Alverson and her 10 points.

Nina Davis Nike Nationals Evaluation

If you have not heard by now, the Tennessee Flight won both the Nationals and Junior Divisions of the 2012 Nike Nationals July 28-31 in North Augusta, South Carolina. Twenty Nike-sponsored teams competed in the Nationals Division while 16 were in the Junior Division. The win in the Nationals Division was the third for the Flight, having previously won in 2008 and 2010.

Memphis Central's, Nina Davis, is a member of the Tennessee Flight Silver squad. Nina put in a lot of work this summer as a major contributor to the squad and definitely solidified herself as a high major 2013 prospect.

Mark Lewis of completed his Nike Nationals recap with this evaluation of Nina:
It’s easy to talk about all the big names on the Tennessee Flight’s roster and we wrote up high impact utility player Olivia Jones in our first coverage. But it would be wrong to finish this article without mentioning the contributions and quality of play of Nina Davis (2013 – Memphis, Tenn.). While almost always seen as a perimeter player on any roster or recruiting list (and even the Flight roster!), the 6-0 Davis made a living down low for Flight in Augusta and throughout the summer. There’s nothing flashy or extraordinary about her low post effort other than she either finished or got to the line at virtually every opportunity. Bigger still in Flight’s success was Davis’s rebounding which would have made Dennis Rodman proud. Long term she still may find a home at the #3 but the flexibility to take a smaller match up to the block could make her a real commodity.

Read the complete recap

ESPN HoopGurlz's Keil Moore evaluation of Nina:
Nina Davis (Memphis, Tenn.), TN Flight Silver 16U: At 6-foot, Davis has the ability to impact a basketball game in a variety of ways. Inch-for-inch, she is one of the better rebounding forwards in the class of 2013. Her knack for finding the ball and attacking the glass helped her team throughout the tournament as she managed to consistently outrebound players three or four inches taller. Davis' efforts on the glass were matched by her ability to score the basketball in a variety of ways. While Davis has a bit of an unconventional release on her perimeter jumper, she manages to connect on a high percentage of her open shots, forcing defenses to play her honest and guard her out to almost the 3-point line. Because of her ability to make an open shot, Davis was often presented with quality driving lanes and was able to attack the basket and use her athleticism to her advantage. As a college prospect, Davis has the ability to play both forward spots. She should be able to exploit defenders fairly well at the next level, depending on matchups.

If you have already taken the ACT test, you are welcomed to take the practice test to see your improvement since last taking the actual test.

The practice test will be held Saturday, August 25 at Ridgeway Baptist Church from 9:00am-1:00pm. You can register here. Use Zip Code 38119.

3 Ways to Pick the Wrong College

Pick for the name – would you pick your best friend for their name? Of course not. A name doesn’t tell you much about a person, and it doesn’t tell you much about a school. A school may be a well-known name, but maybe their academics aren’t great, maybe they aren’t serious about helping their athletes professionally. Maybe it isn’t where you want to be geographically. There are a million potential conflicts. Maybe there is a big-name school that has everything you’re looking for – but think about what you need, and look at whether each school has it, before you decide.
