Hemmitt Helps The Lady Eagles JV Survive The Friendswood Mustangs

Blayke Hemmitt (2012) scrambled and goes down the floor to fight for a loose ball against Kessler Hurd (2013) Friday night at home when the Friendswood Lady Mustangs visited Pearland Dawson High School. Hemmitt played solid in the last 3 minutes of the ball game hitting a long 3 at the corner to help the eagles regain the lead. She stepped up her defense grabbing a couple of rebounds and a great put back for another two points with less than a minute to seal the win. Hemmitt’s future is bright and looking for her to mature and fully develop her overall game this summer with the Houston Angels.

Friendswood Lady Mustangs Varsity

Freshman Jill Bergeson (2013) of Friendswood High School starts for the Lady Mustangs. She’s long and stands about 6 feet can rebound bring the ball up and down the court, a great shooter and very aggressive young player on the floor. Bergeson is a superb wing who's also a great volleyball player that will bring another three years of great of basketball for Coach Kirby Killlingsworth. She averges about 10 points per game. The Lady Mustangs are well coached and work their offenses skillfully, but they can also run and gun with the direction of their witty senior point guard Annalisa Hall that will be featured soon with their junior post Kellsey Kaufhold two of the leading scorer for the Lady Mustangs both averaging 15 points per game.

Big Bri Got Bigger On The Floor

Briana Morgan Williams (2013) is making noise for St. Johns Mavericks. I have known her from when she was 9 years old and I knew from then that she will make her name in basketball. Wearing the Houston Jaguars Elite uniform at her young age and learning how to dribble and shoot was fond to remember. She was once coached by Moses Ellis of Team NCI that became Houston Angels under the direction of Coach Anthony Hemmitt were it became more of a passion to be a true winner. Williams stands about 5’11” with a great basketball framed body is a threat in the middle. A great rebounder and defensive player that any coach would want for their team. One thing that separates her from others is her basketball IQ. She can pass and dribbles like a guard. Quick and stable feet with soft hands to the basket. “Briana is a physical player who is adjusting to the speed of the varsity level,” Coach Pat Krieger said. The Mavericks will be playing at home against their rival Kinkaid School on the 29th of January game time 5:30pm.

Shaq Rattles The Rim At Home

Shaquille Cleare of The Village High School finally decided to rattle the rim in front of the home crowd Wednesday night. I asked him more than twice why he never dunks and he just smiled and say I don't need to, but Wednesday night I saw a different Shaquille. He became very aggressive and showed everyone how he can really dominate in the middle if needed. He's a very humble young man with a lot of potential. Coach Harvey is taking his time and continuosly working to bring out the best of his very young team and with the way everything is turning out this year, I believe the Vikings will be ready to compete with any team next year. The maturity of each players are now visible. Having everyone healthy is a big plus compared to their last year season when most of the games the Vikings will only have 5-6 players playing due to injuries. The future is looking bright for The Village School and the Vikings.

They’ve known her as “LIL JAZ”

Jazmin Guerrero was known to her basketball buddies as “LIL JAZ”, but she was always a BIG contributor in any teams she’s on. From the Houston Jaguars Elite, Team NCI Elite and Coast 2 Coast just to name a few AAU teams that benefited from her talent and skills. Today any team and coaches would want to have her as part of their team. Another very skilled guard of Houston’s year 2012 and currently plays for Pasadena Dobie High School under the direction of Coach Shane Brown. Dobie have had a list of alumni that are now playing at the next level and one that always come to my mind was Karima Christmas who was signed by Duke University.

“Lil Jaz” now the top scorer for Dobie averaging over 14 points per game. A great jump shooter and can see the floor very well. She’s fun to watch and a very approachable young lady. I remember her vividly when her uncle Charles brought her to attend a basketball camp in Tennessee and taking pictures with Coach Pat Summitt and Candace Parker a few years back. Great job “Lil Jaz” keep it up!
