It's that time of year again. The 5th Annual Fall Exposure League is here! Kicks off Saturday, August 22. All games at Ridgeway Baptist Church. Admission $5.

Notre Dame vs Dayton - 9:15am 
Notre Dame's Ashtyn Baker will be making her debut in the League. She is a high energy PG with quite a variety of moves that she uses to get to the basket to score. Although she is small in statue, she does not mind taking contact. Ashtyn will have a nice supporting cast of other Private School players including  3 point shooting Best of Preps team member, Bionka Massie.

Compared to Notre Dame, Dayton is a rather young squad. Ninth grader Kerrigan Braxton made a name for herself in last year's league as a deep 3 point shooter. Middle schooler Zipporah Davis also displayed that she is a tough and aggressive defender.

Maryland vs Baylor - 10:15am
This game will be a battle of height vs speed. Maryland's Tamia Jones and Zakyia Head stands at 5'10 and has the athletic abilities to play the guard and forward positions. Jayla Hemingway is 5'10 and will be all over the court on the defensive and offensive end.

Baylor will be lead by the dynamic duo of Tyenisha Metcalf and Taylor Lattimore. These two can get up the court quickly and athletically to score.

UCONN vs Tennessee - 11:15am 
In last year's league, UCONN was the team that no one seemed to be able to beat, until they ran upon a young Memphis squad. UConn is made up of some of the same players from last year including vocal leader and defender Gabrielle Morgan, show time Zaire Hicks, and aggressive Emily Evans.

Tennessee is young compared to the veteran UConn team. But believe me, they will not play young. They will be lead by last year's league leading scorer and rebounder Brittni Moore, distributing Alexis Taylor, 3 point shooting Jada Taylor and aggressive Destiny Shaw.

Florida State vs South Carolina - 12:15pm
I like to call this game the battle of the Point Guards.  Florida State's Myah Taylor had a breakout season last year at Olive Branch as a 10th grader. She received tons of recognition and awards including MS Gatorade Player of the Year and Best of Preps Player of the Year. She is a distributing shake-n-bake type point guard.

South Carolina's Gazmyne Herndon is another shake-n-bake point guard.  She plays so laid back and in such a smooth fashion. I like to call her the smooth operator.
