Louisiana Players To Watch - Heart Of Texas Showcase

Looking forward to another week of basketball as these days seem more of a rarity in this new normal. We have four older teams traveling to the heart of Texas tournament starting tomorrow in a bracket style format for each division. I wanted to take some time to highlight a few players we have already ranked and evaluated as players to watch this weekend. Best of luck to all OUR girls playing this week... enjoy these games as we know this can be taken away from us really quickly with all the unknown of the future!

Who To Watch: 2021's

Vici Woods - ULM Commitment

6'1 Forward / Ranked #6 / Lake City Pride

  • Probably the best rebounder in the class look for her to be active on the boards on both ends of the floor. Really excited to see her play at this level... look for her game to grow after she finds out what works and what she needs to work on to compete against a team full of college prospects.

Tyrielle Williams

5'7 Guard / Ranked #9 / Lake City Pride

  • One of the best two way guards in the class.. She makes her teammates better on both ends of the floor. Her team will lean on her to lead from the guard position with several guards staying home this week.

Marissa Tell - Grambling Commitment

6'1 Small Forward / Ranked #14 / Lake City Pride

  • Just like her teammate Woods....we're excited to see her play at this level not only to see what she excels at but to see what she needs to improve on to prepare for the next level. Her high school team ask her to do a lot...while in this setting look for her to pick her spots and stand out even more as she showcases her athleticism and looks to find her role.

Deonna Brister - Nicholls Commitment

5'11 Small Forward / Ranked #16 / Lake City Pride

  • The Nicholls commit has been actively working on her game as we've seen from a distance. She can score it on the offensive end and her length gives her an advantage on defense making her a rangy defender. Her team has a lot of length you could see her playing anywheres from the 2 to the 4 this weekend.

Presleigh Scott - Southeastern Commitment

5'10 Small Forward / Ranked #19 / Lake City Pride

  • I don't think anyone will ever question how hard she goes! She brings that toughness to a team that seems to rub off on her teammates. She's a 1,000 point scorer with a senior year left to play.... but she'll take ownership in taking whatever role the team needs.

Haley Franklin

5'6 Guard / Honorable Mention / Louisiana Lady Hoopers

  • Possibly one of the most under the radar players in this event. A junior guard for her high school team that had three senior guards with capability of playing at the next level. Has the speed, quickness to really excel in the open court. Check her out this tournament and expect her to have a big Senior season at Lee High School.

Leilani Lewis

5'7 Combo Guard / Honorable Mention / Baton Rouge Lady Tigers

  • Brings a scoring mentality to the guard position and a good one on one creator. She'll be creating a lot for the Lady Tigers this week.
