Austin Elite Dream Team Creating Nightmares Early

Kiana Ray

Kianna Ray, Mikayla Christian and Mykiel Burleson may not be household names yet however they showed that they are not afraid of anything or anyone as their squad, the Austin Elite Dream Team, went head to head with some tough competition in the Houston Insiders Basketball Classic WNBA Division. This team is compiled of two 9th graders while all of the others are 8th graders, including the three mentioned. Ray, already at 6'0, showed poise beyond her years as she attacked the basket almost at will against whoever guarded her. Christian showed her ability to shoot the long ball with ease while Burleson scored on a variety of ways during the weekend event. Although I mentioned three players, this team is loaded with talent and I'll get a chance to take a more in depth look when I travel to Austin for the Tyrone Johnson Classic next month.
