Still smooth as silk freshman Courtney Latham had close to 100 fans there to cheer her on, including the Clear Springs team. Latham was a main ingredient in the Chargers recipe to Austin last season and her former teammates and numerous family member made plenty of noise

Chinwe Duru led the Green Wave with seven rebounds and made one of the best drop steps I've seen in a very long time as she Tierra Jones were quite strong in the paint

The soft touch showed by Adesuwa Ebonwonyi from midrange was huge as she hit several big shots throughout the game but two of the biggest keys that unlocked the door to victory came from the backcourt as Jamie Kaplan led all scorers with 16 points while Leslie Vorpahl came off the bench to score 12.

Vorpahl, like Latham, is a freshman and her steady under control play was huge, especially down the stretch. I'll be back later to touch on Rice as they prepare for Southern Mississippi on Saturday at home. Several high school stars from across the state will be on hand for that game which starts at 2pm, yes I'll be there
