Zaire Hicks – (Olive Branch, Miss.), Memphis Lady Mambas – 2017
Hicks has a handful of offers from schools in the Southeast, but it is apparent that she is not ready to end her development. She made a 10-hour drive to the Bluegrass State to prove to evaluators that her game continues to evolve. Her ability to attack the lane was well documented last summer at the EBA Super 64 Camp. In this performance Hicks proved that her jumper is far from a weakness. She hit jumpers off the bounce and even hit a few from beyond the stripe. Her athleticism and willingness to work point to more success in the future
