Featured Player


Diamond DeShields, A.O.T. Lady Rebels (Norcross, Ga.)

The sky is the limit for the highly athletic DeShields. We believe that her arsenal of basketball weaponry has yet to be fully unleashed. It is always amazing to write my research paper write my paper see her when her game elevates when competition increases. That was evident for the 6-foot-2 junior wing in the Black Division championship game of the Spring Showdown.

Spotlight Players

Morgan William, Alabama Tar Heels (Birmingham, Ala.)

Speed, quickness, and my assignment help uk agility are a few terms that come to mind when we watch William on the hardwood. The sophomore point guard pushes the ball up the court with authority and is faster with the basketball than most players without. Standing at 5-5, she’s small but her cat like reflexes and tenacity on defense helped her Alabama Tar Heels reign supreme in the TeamEBA division. William showed signs of being able to knock down shots off the bounce which will enhance her stock on the offensive end.

Meredith Schulte, Atlanta Cagers Storms (Braselton, Ga.)

Schulte caught our attention with her solid play on both ends of the floor. A class of 2015 prospect, she has good legitimate paper writing services instincts, solid fundamentals, and a scorers’ mentality. At 5-11, she handles the ball well in the open court and can take the ball aggressively to the basket and finish. She’s most definitely a player that can be counted on to give you 100 percent whenever she is on the floor.
