Louisiana still talking about #PrimeTime


 This was a very entertaining group of young ladies from West Monroe Louisiana ranging in grades 7th - 12th and ironically the youngest happens to be the tallest. These young ladies got after it, from baseline to baseline, breaking speed limits posted on the highway back on the court

I  love finding talent because after the four and five star kids are gone, the playing field of next level talents evens out, trust me on that and several of these young ladies can play at the next level

Whitfield sealing deals at #CFInvite



2017 just keeps getting brighter and brighter and although I always knew Arianna Whitfield would be playing D1 ball eventually, she's gradually moving up higher and higher. She doesn't know the meaning of pressure yet she knows how to apply it and if you don't get that

Rodgers progression continues at #CFInvite

This young lady has made some incredible shots over the past year I've been watching her and if Highlight Waiting To Happen wasn't too long for me to type, I'd probably be tweeting that hashtag. On the real, Brittany Rodgers is one of many talented South Texas Hoyas I've watched improve, it's all about putting in the work and putting the ball in the basket, as well as stopping opponents from doing so, I stole that from DFW Elite Coach Butler but it works right? So does BR, hey BR sending me to the ER!!!!!

Robinson elevating over opponents with ease at #CFInvite


I was told to keep an eye out on Imani Robinson who was just returning from track a few weeks ago and I immediately knew who she was. The more I see her, the more I know she's legit in  basketball as well and her efforts at the Cy Fair Invitational for Austin Elite landed her on the Tip Sheet read more

No matter what day, Ray finds a way at #CFInvite


This is what I would consider one of my  Picasso pics, noooo, not the quality of the photo but of the players captured because recently,Lauren Cox, Mykiel Burleson and Mikayla Christian have all made Tip Sheets while Kiana Ray defending Jordan Hosey make this one, hey I guess #YouCantTeachThis works in things other than basketball

Green's efforts land her on #CFInvite Tip Sheet



AD Elite has some talented players that are hitting the court running.

At the Cy Fair Invitational, one young lady in  particular caught my eye, Lexy Green from Cedar Park and, well just read more

Fury unleashed at #CFInvite

Another solid program I've enjoyed watching over the years has been the Fury and they always manage to find ways to be in the hunt. At the Cy Fair Invitational, they showed an abundance of talented players close to the magic number that could do multiple things. Taylor Lacour, Maddie Anderson and Amanda Johnson all played for Georgetown, Johnson in fact averaged over 20 ppg for the event. Another of the Georgetown crew, Kendrick Clark, made the Tip Sheet  read more

If it's not 8 in the morning it ain't over #PrimeTime #CFInvite

I didn't get to see the little LadyBig Dogs play but I saw the big ones and let me say this, I had the foresight to know that Maci Forsythe would be doing some impressive things this past weekend, guess what, right again. I'm not finished with Prime Time Saturday or Cy Fair Sunday but I am rushing to be in compliance with the all important Girlz Prep Report scouting service

College coaches, I'm all over the place, I not only see talent, I know talent and always remember, I have no agendas and this just in, I have been NCAA approved once again.

Panthers on prowl at #PrimeTime



The Panthers were another team I caught at the Prime Time event that simply didn't know what the word quit meant. The jumped out on you and kept the heat going throughout the game and to do this, you have to have players that not only buy into your system but also players who can play and they had some. Grace Pendergrass might not be a singer but she definitely topped some charts on Saturday. Although she's undersized, she doesn't realize it and her toughness enabled her to battle with taller opponents, her ability to finish was simply amazing from the angles she did it from and she also played the passing lanes extremely well. Caitlin Lennon handled the pressure well, saw the floor even better and to top that off, created easy shots for her teammates. Brianna Weiissert was also a threat, she ran the floor well, has a good strong frame and finished. After further review,  this was the Alba Golden school team out of Alba and they will be on my list to see again

Texas Fire Newton Red at #PrimeTime

 Texas Fire is a program deep with talented players and this one is no different. Presley Stephens is long and athletic, showed she could not only finish and rebound but defend and block shots. Demi Frazier created her shot well, showed she could hit the 15 footer with ease and the same could be said Janice Saulters and Bri Maddox and when you have a team that can move the ball around quickly and efficiently making it seem effortlessly at times, that's a huge plus

I'll dress cool the next time I see this squad because I know it's going to be hot

'16 Under The Radar Pantetti showing 6'3 talent as Heart Of Texas is next

Brittany Panetti is looking in the direction because things are definitely looking up for the Katy Rebel=Goss sophomore. At 6'3, she's making her presence felt, coming up with a double-double of 17 points and rebounds in the Cy Fair Invitational in one game while averaging a double-deuce for the event, yes I just thought of that

Kendall Rollins was on fire averaging over 15 ppg while Allison Goss did what she does at run the one effective and efficiently averaging 10 and a whole bunch of assists. This is a talented team and they will be on hand at the Heart Of Texas

Remember May 16-18 GPR Certified event



Insiders Basketball Classic, May 16-18, "and they don't have no award for that", yes they do Drake,  team and individual trophies
