Lady Pumas Select #I10LiveShowcase

Love to see Louisiana squads because more times that not, I'll be in for a treat even if they roll in down I-10 with boudin or cracklin for me but I'm going to drop this on Lady Pumas anyway, next time I'm expecting a treat though, I'm serious. I was serious about Bereionne Woods four years ago when I caught her in New Orleans in a tournament along with several other can't misses on their squad and just like I called it, all have committed somewhere and even though Woods is a year behind, she too will land on her feet but right now she'll land on my tip sheet which will be on my website later today or tonight or early tomorrow but she'll be on it


Ja' Kai Randall had a solid performance in the paint, I definitely loved watching Aujelyn Davis get to the basket, Cierra Cockerham showed a nice midrange game while the energy from Bria Neal was hot baseline to baseline but it din't stop there. Takelia Smith and Lindsey Lovecchio didn't let up when they came in,  Ahjah Yunusah is another force inside to be reckoned with. Terris McKay definitely is exciting, nice spin move in traffic but I love guards with poise and she has that along with the ability to attack the basket and finish but I ain't finished. Jaleah Lafargue left me speechless and seeing that she's a 2020, I ain't talking at all. Athletic, gets to the basket at will, finishes, jumps out the gym and huge upside

Texas Elite Phenom 16U #I10LiveShowcase

I definitely got a kick out watching this younger Phenom squad get after it at the I-10 Live Showcase and many showed me more than I had seen during the glimpses I've had throughout the season. First looks at Rylee Batson, Madison Jones and Mikayla Malik were good ones but the whole squad is filled with potential. Batson attacks off the dribble and can create and nail midrange, Jones also does a good job getting to the basket and finishing as well as defends and rebounds well while the upside I'm seeing in Malik with her length and athleticism truly captured my attention as well as the electrifying speedster Deja Jones and Heavyn Ming who brings heat on both ends

Anna Kassim keeps solidifying her next level status, she's strong and finishes that way not to mention she too rebounds well, on both ends. On top of all that, her perimeter defense keeps getting better and while I'm talking about perimeter, you better guard her once she crosses halfcourt because she can shoot the long ball pretty accurately. I'll catch the whole squad down the road, be sure and stay tuned for the I-10 Live Tip Sheet which will be dropped later today, more than likely on my website

DFW Elite Nike 14U #FlavaJam shows stars of the future

Let me tell you something, if this your first time familiarizing yourself would me or what I do, don't be shocked at some of things I say because I definitely mean them but more importantly your only concern should be that I know what I'm doing and I know what I'm talking about and when I associate things such as being counted out like I have been for so many times, it's refreshing to see a 14U squad competing in a NATIONAL 17U event and like me, they keep coming at you with a vengeance. Zyniah Thomas, Mya Willaims and Carolynn Washington all pictured above are three very talented young ladies. Thomas and Washington have landed on my Tip Sheets, both are explosive guards that simply don't know what the word quit means while Williams power on the inside against older players was definitely a treat  to see

Jasmine Shavers has "big time" written all over her and when your hand time enables me to change SD cards before you come down, that in itself should tell you something but watching her create in traffic is huge at this stage. Callie Cooper is definitely a HOOPER, so much energy on both ends and can score but the energy doesn't stop there. Z'Mya Cox, Theasia Ebron and Keyanna White all bring heat and they're all DYNOMITE bit I'm serious, this group of 2021 players will enter high school ready to prove something, they've battled against some of the top players in te state and country and they're not afraid of anything, just like me so with all that being said, Kayden Prox got the Tip Sheet nod from Flava Jam

Day 1 #I10LiveShowcase was solid with more action today

The best way to do something, at least for me is to write it , that way there's no confusion on where I stand on certain issues and over the past week, I have to admit I have seen some of the best basketball that I've seen over the last few seasons. Starting of with the Super 64, then Flava Jam and closing with Prime Time's Grand Finale while I was "camping out" in the Metroplex area, watching the action, talent and energy at Day 1 of the Phenoms I-10 Live Showcase was simply the icing on the cake

Be ready for a barrage of info, sort of like that barrage of long ball shooting I witnessed Clutch City Bowman's squad dropped on me yesterday but here's how it will go, Tip Sheets from each event mentioned, that's FOUR, as well as dropping one on the GPR Under The Radar players so always remember, "if I ain't got a roster I ain't sayin nothin bout ya" so I've said this several ways from correct grammar to dropping it when I was BOTH but needless to say, when I drop it, I'm on point, no agenda whatsoever so be ready and always remember to bring it on the court
