As you all know, this state is littered with talent. I have said it over, time and time again, if a college really wanted to build a successful program, it must have a Tennessee girl on its roster.haha. I know I am biased about that, but it’s true. Blame it on my parents. They watch women’s basketball on ESPN nightly and have been doing since I was little. You would have thought my dad was the AD at the University of Tennessee with all the suggestions he makes. What ruffles his feathers even more is when a school comes within our state and takes a kid. Imari, you’re killing ‘em. I am just kidding. In all honesty, congrats to all the seniors moving forward. Way to rep the state and I wish you success in your future endeavors.
Now, let’s talk about positional breakdowns. I personally love the PG spot. Not just because I played it or I do view it as a crucial piece to a team’s success. I hold this position in high regard because they have to be able to be smart heady ball players who handle pressure and do so much more. They are entrusted by their coaching staff and accountable to their teammates to just get the job done. From running plays, making timely passes, score it, defend, I mean you are talking about someone that is heavily relied on, almost like a QB in football. In this state, I’m not going to call it tiers or the upper echelon, but we have young ladies, top to bottom, that are tough to deal with in these rankings. Here are some of the obvious PGs in the state that are at the best at their positions.
- (South Gibson)
- (Memphis East)
- (Providence Christian Academy)
- (Rossville Christian Academy)
- (East Nashville)
- (Memphis Academies of Health)
- (Clarksville Christian)
These would be considered true PGs who are amongst the best in the 24 class. However, we have a whole set of new crops that are right there with these 10 as well. Take a look at these young ladies who are just as talented as the first group of 10.
(5’5/PG/ Briarcrest)– Shifty PG who can score from the arc or get downhill and finish. She is a tremendous ball handler and one of the most efficient PGs around. She is effective in so many ways from running an offense, taking care of the basketball, and guarding on defense. She hustle’s on every play, executes to the best of her ability, and is a phenomenal young lady off the court.
(5’7/PG/CAK)– Another kid who can score it and dish it with the best of them. Heady ball player who can just flat out go. Is poised with the ball in her hands, knows how to run a ball club. Phenomenal leader who is a great two-way player.
(5’5/PG/ Ezell-Harding)– It’s going to be a big year for this girl as she will be looking to make a huge impact. Speedy ball player who can attack down hill like no other. She prides herself on the defensive end, getting steals and transition buckets. Let’s her D do to the talking and competes the full length of the floor.
(5’5/PG/ Pearl-Cohn)– Super tough kid who can score the rock at a high clip. She is the X factor for this ball club and will unleash her athleticism on each opponent that steps on the floor with her. She scores from all locations on the floor, but will get after it on the defensive end as well. Phenomenal kid who is a workaholic.
(5’6/PG/ Brentwood Academy)– A scoring PG, she has been shifted off ball due to her ability to shoot the rock. Multi-level scoring threat who can fill it up from the arc, or put the ball on the floor and finish at the rim. She’s a tough kid who gets after it and competes with the best of them. Adding a little spice to go along with her swag, this kid is one of the most determined kids around.
(5’6/PG/Bartlett)– Will be looking to contribute right away. Heady ball player who loves to compete. She’s going to challenge her opponent on both ends of the floor. From knocking down threes or finishing at the rim, Mo is going to go hard on that end of the floor. Defensively, she’s a showstopper. She’s going to give it all she has. Great kid who will compete to the final whistle.
Malaya Woullard (5’2/ PG/ Clarksville Academy)– Shift guard who can score it from all three levels. Has a nice step back 3 to her arsenal, can get paint touches with ease, keep the ball on a string and just attack. Executes tactfully and causes disruption on the defensive end.
Genesis Harris (5’5/PG/ Beech)– Sensational lefty who can score it from multiple spots. Can shoot it from the field or slash through defenses on her way to getting a bucket. Will be looked upon to run the Lady Bucs offense this upcoming season. Heady ball player who will be a handful to deal with.
(5’5/PG/ Hendersonville)– A true grinder. She’s going to leave it out on the floor every time she laces her shoes up. Can score it from the arc, but attacking downhill is her game. In all honesty, she is a pest on the defensive end, causing havoc for opponent’s. She gets steals, tips, wins 50/50 battles. The kid is great and will be a big impact for her club this season.
These are just a few other young ladies who play the PG spot. They may not get a lot of pub, but I must say, when the lights come on any given night, no matter the location, they come to hoop!
