It truly is the most wonderful time of the year! I watched Hardin Valley Academy vs Fulton live. I watched York vs Gatlinburg-Pittman online. Hardin Valley beat Fulton 50-22. Gatlinburg-Pittman got the win vs York in OT. After watching these four teams, here are a few opening day standouts from those games!
Butcher was a fun guard to watch! This one gets after it on defense! Always goes after the loose balls, stays aggressive, & provides her team with a true defensive toughness. Kamryn can score in numerous ways. She has a nice pull up jump shot & floater! Don’t be surprised when you see this one get hot from behind the 3 point mark too! The future for Butcher is bright!
Despite the loss, Moore was doing all she could with a tough HVA defensive squad. Maiya scored the first 4 points of the game. I don’t keep stats but I know she definitely filled up the stat sheet. Moore had numerous steals and rebounds! A quick point guard that is good at getting to the rim! Keep your eyes on Moore this season!
We have covered Kyndra numerous times now. This young star is the total package! If any college coaches are sleeping on her, I’ll tell you now to pull the trigger! Kyndra is consistent and efficient! A true floor general and another coach on the court! West’s grit and determination will continue to separate her from the rest of her class! Kyndra does hold a few offers to play at the next level. However, her recruitment is going to sky rocket during her junior year & next AAU season! Don’t be late to Kyndra’s party!!
Kamiyah is extremely hard to guard in the post! She has a strong, solid build that helps her finish through contact! Finishes at the rim good with either hand. Extremely effective in the half court set! I love the way that Kamiyah communicates! Uses her voice whether she is on offense, defense, or the bench! The future is bright for!!
Despite losing to Gatlinburg-Pittman in OT,was my MVP of the game. Yes, I know that many people believe that an MVP performance shouldn’t go to a losing team. However, go watch the game film and you will know exactly why is deserving of the opening day MVP. Cooper scored 23 points in the loss. Knocked down 3 after 3 after 3! Shooter alert!!! Extremely smooth outside shot. Cooper’s defense was just as impressive! This was a sensational performance by and if she continues this, do not be surprised when her recruitment takes off to the highest level! The young sophomore is truly a star!
Burns was all over the court tonight! Plays incredibly tough on both sides of the court. Good ball handler, highly skilled, and crafty with the ball in her hands. We all know that Nya can be deadly from deep! Great play making ability that helps create offense for herself and her teammates! Non-stop motor with great energy! Nya is another young star that everyone should have on their radar!
