Which Players will take the Lead?
Two guards that have consistently lit up the scoreboard at previous TeamPSB events where can i find someone to write my paper are Mychal Johnson (Huntington, WV/St. Joseph) and Griffin Dempsey (Proctorville, OH/St. Joseph). This 1-2 punch in the backcourt is a tough combo to contain. Throw in a Jenna Burdette (Coolville, OH/Eastern Reedsville) on the wing who is a dead eye three point shooter and the Thunder backcourt is tough to guard man or zone. Monesha Womble (East Point, Ga./Carver)is a prospect that has many college coaches interested. Her combination of strength of skill is sure to give the Pistols a chance to compete every night. Other backcourt threats to watch in this tournament are Knoxville Lady Panthers Ashlee Mitchell (Bristol, Tn/Tennessee) and Maelyn Cutshaw (Greeneville, Tn/South Greene). They make their team an instant threat to go deep in bracket play. Switching to the front line match-ups, Brielle Blaire is a super combo forward that can literary analysis essay guidelines score inside and outside the paint. Ellen Faulkner is another forward who can stretch the floor with her shooting ability while also grabbing rebounds in the paint. Finally, Katie Powell (Duluth, Ga./Duluth) is a post player with legit height at 6 foot 3, but can also hit the jumper at 20 feet. Look for her to make a big impact for her FBC team.
