Really loved watching this team play this summer. I’m looking for seeing how their players repseent for their school ball teams. Here were Coach Shipley’s notes.
Aliyah “Speedo” Hawkins- (Cumberland County High School)-5’7”-PG- Arguably a top 5 point guard in her class. TRUE FLOOR GENERAL. She has an amazing ability to change speeds to keep defenders from keeping her in front and is extremely strong. Great floor vision and can finish at the rim through contact. Very toughand competes at a high level.
– (Stewarts Creek High School)- 6’0”- F- One of the most naturally gited players I have coached. Great hands, great footwork, and is very strong.Cam has mulple D1 offers and I believe it is because she is so versaile. She cantake you on the block and bang and then she can go the perimeter and take youoff the dribble. Finishes at the rim and can shoot the 3 ball. She is a match-upnightmare! She has tremendous potenial to be very special

– (Cleveland High School)- 5’9”- combo guard- Emma will have a HUGE summer as she has improved dramaically. She only holds one offer as of right now but has a lot of interest and I anticipate her recruitment to really take off this summer. Long and deceivingly athleXc. She is a great slasher and is one of the best “rebounding down” guards I have seen (absolute monster on the offensive glass for a guard). Competes at a very high level and can really create for her teammates due to her ability to get paint touches. Shoots the 3 ball well and has tremendous basketball IQ. It is very hard to take her off the floor with all the intangibles that she brings to the table.
– (Cannon County High School)- 5’9”- combo guard- This kid is one of ithe best hidden gems in the state of TN. Deceivingly long and athletc! She causes havoc on the defensive end of the floor and is a great slasher (she gets tons of paint touches). She is at her best when the game turns into a track meet…loves toplay fast! Shoots the 3 ball well and is tough as nails.
