Hoops & High Heels had the amazing honor this weekend in covering the annual 2016 “SHE GOT GAME CLASSIC” where the Nation’s TOP high school basketball prospects compete in front of NCAA coaches & recruiters for an opportunity to play at a collegiate level. Hoops & High Heels Media was there to cover it all. Buzz surrounded a few ladies from the DMV area, as well as some athletes from other cities on the East Coast. Review the below recap featuring excerpts from the seasoned women’s sports blog titled, “PASSTHABALL: Push. Lead. Focus. Grind”, and photos taken by our team.
Top 4 Performers & Accolades
Mykea Gray (5’6″) Point Guard: Class of 2017, National Christian Academy (Fort Washington, Maryland)
Mykea Gray put on quite the show at this year’s She Got Game Classic tournament. Mykea is ranked 69th overall in the country in women’s basketball, and 14th for her position by ESPN. She is strong, athletic, confident, and plays great defense.
Gray was also recognized as 1st Team All-Met (2016) in the Washington Post and the Gatorade Player of the Year for player of the year. She will be playing at the University of Miami in Miami, Florida in the Fall of 2017.
Cayla King (5’10”) Point Guard: Class of 2019, Northwest Guilford High School (Greensboro, North Carolina)
“King carries a heavy load for her team. She protects the basketball, initiates the offense and is expected to scores a large portion of her team’s points. In her team’s loss to St. Frances of Maryland, she posted 20 points primarily looking to attack the basket. She also was her team’s assist leader. She is getting looks at the Division I Power 5 level and down.” – (via: passthaball.com)
Lindsey Pulliam (5’8″) Guard: Class of 2017, Good Counsel High School (Olney, Maryland)
Lindsey Pulliam has been described by ESPN as an agile guard with a smooth and consistent mid-range jumper on the court. She also is unselfish in basketball and makes smart passes in transition. Pulliam made 1st Team All-Met her senior year in 2016 and is ranked 17th in the country for her position. She is committed to playing at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois in the Fall of 2017. (Click the above photo to see her highlights!)
Selena Philoxy (6’1″) Power Forward: Class of 2017, South Shore High School (Brooklyn, New York)
“Philoxy, a Seton Hall signee, was a big reason her team put a scare into national #1 (multiple polls) Paul VI High School of Virginia. Playing with a good motor and not intimidated by the opposition’s superior size, she posted 17 points scoring in the low post and hit the boards hard.” -(via: passthaball.com)
