I had  to take a little time off to catch my breath and re-charge after rolling with Texas A&M on their magical run along with enjoying the hospitality and excitement at the WNBA draft. With that being said, congratulations to all of the young ladies selected on the AGH team, however I still feel there should be two seperate lists, one for 5A and one for the other divisions. The All District selections are at the bottom of the page.

WNBA Draft

Sydney Colson and Danielle Adams were taken in the second round of the WNBA draft. I am so proud of these young ladies and I will do a story on my daughter who has accomplished something only a few if any from Houston have done and that's being an All American that won a National Championship and was drafted by the WNBA.

If you had a chance to watch the run, hopefully you realize you just witnessed some of the best basketball, male or female, being played, especially if you saw both finals. Adoara Elonu got us going early, Danielle Adams and Tyra White provided most of the firepower, Sydney Carter gave her all on defense, while Maryann Baker and Karla Gilbert came off the bench to provide valuable minutes. Sydney Colson? She kept everything calm and flowing, just like me (lol). This was a team effort all season and I'll be adding things to the Aggies page over the next week.


Adams & Colson invited to draft.....more


Ultimate Memorial did a nice write up on your Houston representatives and I've always complained that our local media didn't do enough, so after I'm rested up, I'll do a full length on both. I know more people may have been  ENJOYING that thrilling UCONN vs Butler match-up, best nights sleep I've had in a long time, however if you watched the Women's Final Four, I doubt seriously if you yawned.

Kids who are out there playing, remember NEVER to give up, the game is played on the court. Baylor beat A&M three times, they couldn't beat them. Stanford was the only team to beat UCONN, they couldn't beat them. The Big East was the toughest conference in basketball, they couldn't beat Notre Dame, yet they did because all they did was WIN,WIN,WIN!

Final Four and Indiana Here I Come

In a couple of weeks, GPR will be back to normal however I am so elated and happy for me baby. I have some interesting stories coming up on Texas and it's talented players, but right now, it's about Sydney and A&M.  Here'a a great story about the backcourt and another on top point guards that might be drafted in the WNBA.  As I enjoy the ride, I want to give a special thanks to all those who have been supportive over the years, I really appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. Here ya go!
