On September 8, 2013 I had the opportunity to attend The East Tampa Thunder inaugural invitation-only Super 64 Showcase held at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, FL. The invite-only exposure event for rising 9th thru 12th graders attracted the top girl high school basketball players in Central Florida area.
Bay Area Hoops got a chance to witness some good talent from various schools. Here’s some of the talent that caught our eye:
Alise Davis 2017 Tampa Catholic HS…..Had a solid day performing in the paint. At 6’2” she showed how to control the paint. Knows her role on the floor and causes opposing defenders and defenses problems.
Peyton Walker 2015 Seffner Christian Academy…..All-around player with a tough attitude. She has a feel for the basket with a high IQ. It appears Peyton has been been working on her long range jumper. She’s a BALLER!!
Hayley Duren 2016 American Heritage HS…..The 6’4” sophomore is a spectacular shot blocker. She has multiple moves in the post and a soft touch around the rim. Duren has high ceilings in her growth into a basketball phenom. Shes something to watch in the future.
Jermesha Collins 2015 PG Palmetto HS….. Quick, quick, quick! Good coordination, athletic, and showed great perimeter defense. Collins showed good ball-handling and the ability to play both ends of the floor.
Niya White 2016 Boca Ciega HS
Asia Royster 2015 Riverview HS
Destiny Lawson 2015 West Port HS
Shalela Smith 2014 Tampa Bay Tech HS
Alyssa Nieves 2017 Armwood HS
Deja Jeffery 2014 Maclay HS
Shayna Lawrance 2016 Plant City HS
Brianna Thomas 2014 Tampa Bay Tech HS
Ashley Lewis 2014 Mitchell HS
Keaundra Ivory 2014 Armwood HS
