Taylor Alexander makes next level decision #GPRUnderTheRadar

So many times I get a chance to watch players at a young age and you know they have something big in their future. Taylor Alexander is one of those players that caught my eye young, initially because of her size,scoring well inside,  tenacity on the boards and the effort she showed defensively but over the past three seasons, she’s learned how to score multiple ways and at a shade or two under the magic number of six feet, she can consistently face the basket and hit the midrange

She’s still a force in the paint offensively and what caught my eye at first, rebounding and defense earned the Channelview senior Defensive Player of the Year in her district. After a sensational summer, there was no doubt in my mind that she was going to have multiple options as far as college and after weighing all of her options she decided University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma would be the best fit for her

I asked Alexander what narrowed the field down and she said “I chose USAO because not only do I feel comfortable with the environment but also with the coaching staff. I know I can come in to the program and use my skills to bring the developing team to many accomplishments” and one thing I know about this young lady is that if she says she’s going to do it, it’s going to happen

Huskies vs Cardinals open up Southland Conference Tournament

Yesterday was senior day at Sharp and the atmosphere was playoff ready as the Huskies closed out their regular season with a 64-46 victory over UIW


Speaking of playoff ready, the Southland Conference Tournament starts Thursday, well for the women, it actually begins on Wednesday on the men's side, and HBU will crank it up at the Merrell Center against Lamar at 11am followed by Sam Houston vs Nicholls State at 1:30


So for Meghan Shank, Ekemeni Essien and Monet Neal, it's definitely been a joy watching you all and the years I've watched local stars Anna Strickland and Rachel Arthur, even before they played at HBU, Anna in middle school and Rachel as a freshman in high school have been nothing but a joy
