Coming In Hot
The title of this was inspired by christian music artist Lecrae. The lyrics to the song start off:
I Don’t do the most but I do a lot
O’ma make a toast’ cause we still alive
No Bog, I feel like ‘Pac
I shoot the shot
I’m Coming in Hot
The lyrics to this song are fitting because we kicked off the first week of hoops around the state and let me tell you we’ve had kids bringing the heat. Though most of the state’s attention is fixed on the football semifinals, we have had young ladies around the state turn up the heat. From kids displaying double doubles, 30 point scoring games, solid play all around, girls have took center stage and kicked off what is to be a phenomenal season.
PGH Tennessee was around this mid-state this week. Here are some young ladies who scorched the nets and lit a spark for their ball club.
(5’10/Jr./ Brentwood)– The combo guard was deadly from the field. Dropped 31 pts in a win over Hillsboro. When I tell you she was on fire, the kid was lit. Ella displayed an impressive step back game, unleashing 3s from the arc. She utilized picks, getting down hill to finish at the rim. She was an energizer bunny, getting to the paint and did so with ease. This kid is a problem and she’s just getting started.
(5 ‘6/G/Clarksville)– Shifty guard was a swiss army knife, slicing through defenses on her way to the rim. She was big on the defensive end, leading to easy buckets. When running the offense, she utilized her quick first step that enabled her to unleash her pull up game. Kid is super tough and will be a problem to deal with. When she has the ball in on the palms, her ability to exploit defenses is crazy. She has scored in double figures twice this week and will look to continue that trend for many games to come.
(5’7/SF/Ezell-Harding)– This kid was hard to deal with as she attacked the rim. Any time she was in a one v. one situation, she put the ball on the floor, finishing through contact. She picked her spots and was phenomenal from the field. She was active on the defensive end, disrupting FRA’s offense by getting steals. She was the X factor in the game and will be tough to deal with moving forward.
Ava Zenner (5’6/PG/ FRA)– An 8th grader suiting up for the Lady Panthers of FRA, this young lady is shifty with the ball in her hands. Handled pressure well, attacked down hill and finished, wasn’t afraid of contact and even initiated it. She truly is a floor general and knew when to time her offensive team’s attack. She may be young in age, but she is a heady ball player who has a tremendous future ahead of her.
and (Harpeth Hall)– The duo was batman and robin as they rolled over Summit, with each dropping 20+ points. Ave was big on the boards and Charlotte was serving the assist up. This 1-2 punch is a lethal combo for the Lady Bears. At this rate, they could lead their squad deep into state contention.
(6’0/SF/Spring Hill)– The long and lanky wing was a nuisance for her opponent. She tallied 18 points and was the leading catalyst for her ball club. She was up in the passing lanes, grabbed boards, knocked down clutch shots from the field, and was the spark plug her team needed on their way to victory.
Malaya Woullard (5’3/PG/ Clarksville Academy)– Shake and bake. She cooked them and then served them on a platter. Malaya was money from the field, scoring 20 points including 5 threes. She was the leading catalyst to a CA attack, showing why it’s her turn to take over as being the team’s leader. Hungry ball player who is always up for a challenge.
(5’4/SG/ Summit)– The senior was money in the bank as she lit it up from 3 point land. Quinn is a 3pt specialist and can fill it up with the best of them. She wasn’t shy in pulling the trigger and she was nothing but net as she splashed the ball in the hoop time in time again.
(6’1/C/PCA)– The state is taking notice as she tallied another double-double against a DII opponent. Coming over from TISAA, you would have thought there was a transition period, think again. KM has dominated the paint, unleashing a bevy of moves around the block. She has owned the boards, anchored the middle in blocking shots, and done this all in a quiet manner. She’s put in time in the weight room and in the gym. Her travel ball coaches call her “Jokic” and if you watch her, you can see why. Great young talent with a bright future.
(5’6/CG/ Nolensville)– shifty kid who can start and stop on a dime. Can score it from all 3 levels. A great two way player who can do all things. Score it, rebound it, dish it, defend, get steals, you name it. Her fingerprints will be all throughout the ball game. The kid plays hard and she plays each possession like its her last. Brings an infectious attitude to the squad that ignites her teammates. When I say she leaves her mark on the game, dropping 23 points, dishing 3 assist, grabbing 5 boards, having 4 blocks, and getting 3 steals is a pretty good coming out party.
(6’0/SG/Central Magnet)– Smooth and silky, the Lipscomb commit was nothing but butter from the arc. You can try and run her off the line, but she will then utilize her quick first step to get a paint touch. Had 29 in her team’s victory the other night. The kid is just phenomenal and a scoring machine at that. She’s a dark horse for end of the year accolades in my opinion.
