My Top 5 #MGBB Players

With all the media out about Chris Rock's new movie, Top Five, I decided to put together my Top Five Memphis Girls Basketball Players. 

Nina Davis (Central/Baylor) - "Underrated by many, But now they know"

Marquita Mackey (Northside/Mississippi State/Southwest/Lemoyne Owen??) - "Get out of her way"

Alshaa Hodges (Hamilton/George Washington?) - "Half Court Buckets"

Kaylan Pugh (St. Mary's/Ohio State Signee) - "Memphis Representer"

Ashley Shields (Hamilton/Melrose/Southwest CC/WNBA/Overseas) - "Show Time"

As I started the Top 5, I couldn't believe all the names that started to pop in my head. I couldn't believe the history that I was uncovering. Then I said to myself..."This is why I started The history we have and the memories created."

I've been involved with Memphis basketball for over 25 years.  There has been a lot of talent to come out of this city so I know I'm leaving some names off.  If you think of any, tweet (@patoshajeffery), facebook (patoshajeffery) or email #MGBBTop5.
