Unsigned Senior: Joslynn Basemore (2016) CG Manassas

Close your eyes and imagine you were averaging 22.5 ppg with season highs of 46, 43, 34 & 33. Wake up because you would have to be dreaming or you would have to be Joslynn Basemore, a 5’5 combo guard from Manassas High School in Memphis.

Coach Bell quoted:

Joslynn Basemore
I’m calling her Ice caz she’s ice cold.

Is it easy scoring 10 points a game, how about 12, 15, 20?
This is possibly the most underrated player in Memphis. Basemore consistently scores in the Mid 20′ and 30s against top teams. A very strong guard with a aggressive attacking game style. Strong ball handler. Good range on shot. Good court vision and solid passer.

There are not many top playerz who literally has to carry a team, like she does. Year after year Manassas is relevant because of her.

Joslynn Basemore, Ice Cold.

Crazy to think that a player with this much proven talent is still relatively unknown and is rarely mentioned among the top players in her class. Joslynn is a absolute steal for whatever college gets her not to mention the fact that she maintains a 4.3 GPA and is a National Honor Society member. Joslynn is still unsigned so I highly urge colleges to come see her quickly.

OB Classic

OB Classic was a great way to kick off the high school basketball season in Mississippi. A few teams look to have break out seasons. Byhalia looks poised to have solid seasons on both the boys and girls side as both teams were victorious at the OB Classic. Taze Moore looked like a Player of the Year candidate leading his Southaven team. Southaven’s girls and boys teams went undefeated  along with Olive Branch. Olive Branch’s girls continued their dominance as they destroyed a Hernando team. Tons of Lady Mambas on various teams; all represented really well and we cant wait to see their success this season. North Mississippi hoops should be really exciting this year.

Tamia Jones (2017) Forward- White Station Highlights

Patosha Jeffery,   always has an eye for Memphis girls basketball.and she has recently did a highlight video for White Station’s 2017 Forward Tamia Jones.

Tamia Jones is an extremely multidimensional player. She is 5’10 and can play both the guard and post positions. So I wanted to display all the skills she has: short jumper, slashing, ability to guard on the perimeter, athleticism, quick hands, rebounding, transition ball handling and shot blocking.

Zaire Hicks (2017) Guard Memphis Metro/ Lady Mambas Highlights

Zaire Hicks has the ability to drain the outside shot with consistency and can also blow by defender with quickness and power. She has outstanding ball handling skills and is a superb passer. With tremendous speed, power and agility she keep opponents on their heels.

Quential (Teal) Battle (2017) Forward Memphis Metro Home School/ Lady Mambas Highlights

Teal Battle has transformed into a deadly inside- outside threat that can attack on the dribble, knock down outside shots and score on the low post. Standing at 6’1 and with her strong frame, quickness and athleticism she can play the 3, 4 or 5 positions. She is also developing into a strong vocal leader especially for the younger players on the team. Look for Teal to make an immediate impact on a D1 level.
