Recap for the Baylor’s Girls Chicago Elite Exposure NCAA Certified Event

Recap for the Baylor’s Girls Chicago Elite Exposure NCAA Certified Event. We had  over 40 high to mid major universities and college attending the Baylor Girls Exposure Event on September 28-29, 2013 @ the Matteson Community Center in Matteson, Illinois. We had universities representing the  SEC, Big Ten, Big East, Horizon League, WAC, Sun Belt, Ohio Valley, Missouri Valley, Mid-American and  American Athletic conferences. We also had so much talent in the building and many young ladies receiving scholarship offers afterwards. Below is some of the highlighted players.

Girls Chicago Elite Exposure Camp

Baylor Basketbal

# 32 Tinon Hunter– Gary West Side High SchoolTinon_opt

At 5’11, Tinon is a strong even handed post players with the ability to finish after using post moves down low with either hand. She has a big body frame and has good feet that allow her to get good offensive and defensive position and is a monster on the boards. Undersized for her position but makes up for it in tenacious play.

 

#13 Dejah Joshua– Gary West Side High School

You want to talk about intensity on the court? From her game face to her game play, there is nothing soft about Dejah on the basketball court. Standing 5’8, she by far was the quickest and most dominant defender at the camp. Using her quick feel and quick hands to disrupt her opponent, steals come a dime a dozen for her. Oh yea, she’s not to shabby on the offensive end showing a knack for knocking down 15 foot jumpers and attacking the basket at will.

 

#4 Michal Miller-Michigan City High School

Michal put on a shooting exhibition this weekend at the camp. She was draining 3 pointers from every angle on the court and displaying a mid range game that had the college coaches nodding their heads in approval. Michal is a 5’9 combo guard with a good handle on the ball and can attack the basket at will. She displays quick feet and is a menace on the defensive end. And to top it off, she plays the game with a smile on her face reminding everyone of exactly what this is…..a game.

 

#10 Khadaizha Sanders– Bishop McNamara High School

By far the most electrifying and exciting player to watch at the camp, “Kay Kay,” understood the moment and made the best of it. Their isn’t much she cant do on the floor. She has a game beyond her years. Listed at a generous 5’7,  her ball handing skills are immaculate and she has court vision that enables her to see things before they happen. She is a vocal leader on the team who has no problem leading by example with her never say die attitude and hard work. She has a great shooting touch and loves to see her teammates score just as much as herself. Defensively, she isn’t a slouch either, displaying good lateral quickness and good hands.

Lady Meanstreets

#11 Marsha Howard– Crete Monee High School

www.baylorbasketball.org
www.baylorbasketball.org

A monster on the court, Marsha is definitely not someone you want to play against but would love to have as a teammate. A 6’1 forward, she rebounds offensively and defensively like a woman possessed and plays good defense on her opponent. She is extremely aggressive and plays with a high motor. The queen of the pick and roll, Marsha can even put it on the floor and handle the ball like a guard.

#40 Tammy Russell– Morgan Park High School

Strong and mean are the best 2 words that describe 5’10 forward Tammy Russell on the court. She plays extremely well with her back to basket and can turn over either shoulder or reverse pivot and face you up. You are at her mercy down low. She rebounds well and understands her roll on the court. She does exactly what she needs to do and is asked to do.

Lady Spartans

#5 Jenasae Bishop– Ecuea  Middle School

Jenasae is a do everything point guard. Only a eight grader, Ms. Bishop has a game beyond her years. She handles the ball well and makes good decisions with the ball. She has quick feet and good lateral movement. What she lacks in height she makes up for in quickness. She can shoot it from the outside as well as mix it up inside with the bigs.

#23 Daijah Smith– Lighthouse College Prep

Daijah can shoot the basketball. She is a coaches kid. She shoots the ball well and has a nice release on her shot. She is 5’9 and thin. However, looking at her lean frame and long limbs, you can tell she is no where near done growing. And that says a lot because she is already a problem for her defenders who have a hard time contesting her shots because they are so worried about her drive to the basket. The sky is the limit for Ms. Smith.

Minnesota Warriors Elite

#25 Katrina Reeves– Hopkins High School

At 6’, Katrina is a great complimentary guard. She has a strong body and can handle the ball like a point guard. With a shot extending well beyond the high school 3 point line, Ms. Reeves can really fill it up. She is a vocal leader for her Warrior team and is never negative on the court.

#45 Sam Trammel– Eden Prairie High School

Sam is a very skilled big. She can face up with her defender or back them down from the block and use her arsenal of post moves to get her shot off. She rebounds offensively and runs the floor well. A junior in class, Sam is merely scratching the surface of her abilities as a basketball player.

Navy Team 

#31 Lauren Dickerson-Lawrence North High School

This 5’2 point guard is better off being labeled as a scoring guard. Lauren has the ability, despite her small stature, to get to the basket and finish. She is lightning quick and can shoot it from the outside at a above average rate. She is very unselfish with the ball, always looking to get her teammates involved in the game. She is only a sophomore but plays the game like she’s much older than that.

#32 Sydney Huffman– Franklin Central High School

www.baylorbasketball.org
www.baylorbasketball.org

Sydney is a highly effective off guard who can handle the ball and loves to attack the basket. She is very passive and unselfish until her fuse is lit. Once that occurs, the only thing that can stop her is the buzzer at the end of each quarter. She can shoot the ball from outside, penetrate off the dribble and find the open man . This 5’6 guard will be a force to be reckoned with once she realizes she is as good as she wants to be.

Team White

Brenda Pennington-Bishop Noll High School

When you combine a consistent 3 point shot, ball handling skills, unselfishness, the “want to” to play defense, and being extremely coachable, you get one heck of a ball player and that explains Brenda to a T. She lead a undermanned Camp team to a couple victories and made her opponents account for her whereabouts on the basketball court at the camp.

 

Naomi House-Bishop Noll High School

Teammates at the camp and teammates at the camp Naomi and Brenda Pennington just flat out play well together. Naomi is the bigger of the guards standing at 5’8. Ms. House can also shoot the ball with consistency and is very athletic. She has a killer crossover that makes her hard to guard and can finish with both hands in the paint. She has quick feet and can guard a variety of positions.

 

 

High to Mid Major College Coaches attended the Girls Chicago Elite Exposure NCAA certified team camp

High to Mid Major College Coaches attended the Girls Chicago Elite Exposure team camp. The camp was open to individual players and teams. We had the highest level of guard play in the county and the bigs dominating the boards coast to coast.  The traveling teams and individual players demonstrated collegiate skills/drills that  impressed and sparked the interests of the college coaches.  Many of players stood out. GirlsBaylorCamp1

The Baylor Youth Foundation does it again with another successful event this past weekend.  With over 40 colleges and universities in attendances.The camp was held at the Matteson Community Center in Matteson, Illinois on September 28-29. The Elite Exposure Camp gave these young ladies the highest level of exposure!

These young ladies were provided the opportunity to showcase their talent. Starting the weekend off was Shon Bolden from Living Empowered Sports, who is a professional trainer for Tamika Catchings, George Hill and Marquis Teague who gave a shout out to Baylor Youth on Instagram.  Shon provided the ladies with fundamental drills and advice to prepare them for this event and going to the next level. After the workout session, the 200+ campers went either with their home travel teams or to pre determined camp teams and began game play which consisted of 3-4 round robin games to showcase their talent.

We would like to thank the following universities and colleges for attending our events and look forward to seeing some of these young ladies playing on your campuses! Without you are event would not have been a success!
