Lady Gamecocks Roll:
The Lady Gamecocks will rely on some solid senior leadership this season.and got things started on the opening night with 23 points and 21 points respectively over Marion HS. This duo has been making noise for several years over at Sumter HS.
Brown has really looked to bring her game to both guard positions at times with her play. Rickell is a feisty defender with an all-out attack attitude on defense. Surely don’t leave her open on the wing – she will hurt with her ability to knockdown shots on the perimeter.
Croskey is no stranger to basketball fans here in the Palmetto State. Kiara missed all of last season with a injury for the Lady Gamecocks. She can get the ball to the cup with her ability to finish on both sides of the rim. Kiara will touch the paint and look to penetrate and kick to an open teammate. She really plays the game with a good basketball understanding.
The Lady Gamecocks rolled in a win over Westwood HS. Brown led the charge with 19 points while Croskey finished with 18 points. Youngsterfinished with 10 points in the win. Can the Lady Gamecocks make a run this season in Class 5A?
