Katie Blackmon – 2018 – 6-1 – Post – Olive Branch – Solid, strong and deceiving…Not afraid of mixing things up…Has some sound post moves to call on…Can finish with contact…Cuts aggressively without the ball…Major presence on the boards…Gets the ball out to trigger the break
Mark Lewis said about Zaire:
Zaire Hicks – 2017 – 5-7 – Point Guard – White Station – Tennessee-Martin signee…Small, strong and quick at the point…Penetrates and handles the contact well…Has plenty of speed with the ball…Sets up her attack with multiple fakes…Acceleration is there on the catch…Goes both ways…Nice stroke both from the perimeter and off the pull up
