TWELVE blows me away #PrimeTime

Watching these eager and talented young ladies from around the College Station area truly was a joy as it brought back memories on a number of fronts. With a mixture of players from the 2018 to 2021 classes, TWELVE won the 7/8 Grade Division during the Prime Time Tournament held at the end of the month in New Caney Texas

Wayneshia "Trecee" Daily does so many good things, she's strong, athletic, can defend, get to the rim and score from just about anywhere but her basketball instincts are ahead of her age and when you have that type of combination, that's a pretty good foundation. When you talk about range however Gracie Hawkins and Alexis King can already be labeled as zone busters and when all were on, I was in a different type of zone
I can't wait to see this team again, they know and understand the game and the strength of Sierra Reismeier, Zaria Richards and Kasey Jo Hinton was a good sign because they go after everything. Hinton wants to play ball in college, well she's tall, handles the ball in the open court, can finish inside or face the basket and has excellent timing. She also keeps the ball high and ignited many fast breaks via outlets and she even banked in a couple, so yes, she definitely has a next level shot as well as her teammates
How about Frances King zig zagging through traffic as she broke the press single handily a few times and she found ways to get to the basket and to the line but  with her athleticism along with time, she will be doing some damage. Hannah Hawkins and Darby Hurley will also be doing plenty of damage, both handle and see the floor well and can create their own shot which is cool because Hurley is 2019 and Hawkins is 2020 so time is definitely on their side

Well time is also on the side of the babies, cousins Precious Daily and Corcenia Thompson because they will bring me fun from the Class of 2021. Both are simply fearless, weren't fazed at playing up, getting hit or talking the big shot. Daily is the younger sister of Wayneshia who is her teammate and they have an older sister, Patrickia, who also helped her Lady Elite team leave with a championship
