The South Mississippi Elite program is a constant for two things: player development and depth on the roster. Burnell Wesco has worked exceptionally hard over the past years to find players from the Southern Mississippi area to give them opportunities to achieve and play basketball at the next level. One of Wesco’s prime success stories is Tiaria Griffin of Monticello, Miss., who was a key contributor for Coach Andy Landers at Georgia this year as freshman.

This year’s South Mississippi Elite team is a typical Burnell Wesco team. It features strong guard play from 5–foot–11 four-star lead guard Christa Reed of Bay St. Louis, Miss. The No. 73 ranked player in the Class of 2014 ELITE 100 has garnered scholarship offers from number of NCAA Tournament caliber schools over the past year. The perfect complement to Reed’s playmaking ability is an athletic, rebounding forward in Kayla Gordon of Meridian, Miss. The 6-foot power forward is strong on the block and always finds ways to get rebounds in critical moments of game play.

Joining the Reed-Gordon duo is a pair of help essays athletic guards on the wings. Class of 2014 guard Randi Brown of Morgan City, La., is an aggressive driver who is difficult to guard by most defenders. Playing on the opposite wing for SME is 2014 guard Shaniqua Magee of Collins, Miss. The 5-6 combo guard is quick and athletic which make her an instant pest for the opposing ball handlers.

Our National Evaluator Stephen Peck says that “SME is a quality program that brings a number of athletes to Peach State events every year. What I like most about Coach Wesco is his ability to get the most out of all of his players. I really see players reaching their potential each and every year.” Coach Wesco has a signature motto which unifies his players together, which is “WIIINNNNEEEE!!” In fraction homework help that simple quote, the young ladies from South Mississippi find a way to come out on top more times than not.
