The moment has nearly arrived, as the first-ever Headliners Invitational is set to tip off on Sunday, November 12th. With high school tryouts only two weeks away, this is the last opportunity for prospects to showcase their skills and compete at an elite event prior to the school season. Session Two features exciting prospects coached by Megan Hudson, Trafford Hannan, and Jessica Duleba; who will win the Headliners Invitational Most Valuable Player Award? Here are a few who may be taking home the hardware.
2024 CGis a hidden gem for the Walled Lake Warriors. She can take over games offensively with her sharpshooting and aggressive downhill drives. Makenna rises to the occasion in big moments with her competitive fire and forces turnovers with her defensive awareness. She has quick hands and finishes strong at the rim. Makenna will be an outstanding prospect some may be seeing for the first time Sunday at the Headliners.
2025 PGcould be the most dynamic point guard at the Headliners Invitational Sunday. She has the shifty handles and downhill explosiveness to create scoring opportunities. Selena finishes with both hands through hard contact and won’t shy away from post defenders. She has exceptional vision and quickness to defend top guards. Selena will be one of the most electric guards in session two of the Headliners.
2025 SGshowcased her athleticism at the PGH Top 250 Expo this off-season. She can jump out of the gym, skying up for rebounds. She finishes strong around the rim and will out-work opponents on both ends. Melanin will be an exciting prospect to see compete in session two of the Headliners on Sunday.
2026 SGwent on a scoring spree at the PGH Top 250 Expo earlier this off-season. She has the dribble moves and speed to beat defenders to the rim; her outside shooting accuracy can be equally deadly. Faith will be an exciting prospect to see matched up with other top guards during session two Sunday.
2026 PG Madison White has worked hard all off-season in preparation for an increased role at Lapeer this winter. She has developed into a confident, strong ball handler who can attack downhill and finish with balance at the rim. Madison sees the court well and creates open shots for the offense. She will be an exciting competitor to see at the Headliners during session two.
Jayla Holiday is a 2026 Center from Lapeer who will be an intriguing prospect Sunday. She has the size to dominate in the low post and continues to increase her strength, improve her footwork, and progress her ball handling abilities. Jayla is someone who will be exciting to see matched up with other quality posts during session two.
2025 PFis a Marian Mustang who should be a main attraction for coaches attending the event on Sunday. She protects the basket defensively and consistently outworks her opponents for rebounds and position with great seals and footwork. Ruby finishes well at the rim and will also face up to make shots from the high post. I am looking forward to seeing her battle against other top forwards in session two.
2026 PGis a floor general for Ithaca. She has the ability to drain 3’s from outside or utilize an arsenal of dribble attacks to score at the rim. Libby draws defenders and then makes the smart pass to open teammates. She will be a top guard to watch during session two on Sunday.
