|Laney's Jaiden Hamilton will play in Sunday's showcase.|
Many players participating in the event have already made a splash on the local hoops scene. Junior Jaiden Hamilton (pictured above) helped Laney win a state championship last season. Hamilton sports a 3.75 grade point average to go along with her sweet jump shot. Fellow junior Jakiyah Parker of Richmond Academy also will play. The last time I saw her, she provided the heroics in Richmond's dramatic first round state playoff win. Here's a flashback to that night from AugBball's Facebook timeline:
One of the youngest and most promising participants will be Jordyn Dorsey, a freshman at Cross Creek who led Pine Hill Middle School to three consecutive county championships. After watching her score 31 points in 24 minutes in a game last December, I became a big fan. I look forward to seeing her play Sunday against some of the best high schoolers in the surrounding states.
