Muy Caliente!

A couple teams and few players are peaking at the right time:

Madison- The Mavericks are firmly ranked #2 in the city and are playing well. They thumped Smithson Valley last night by close to 40 points. Their All Everything backcourt of Monica Engleman and CeCe Harper are clicking while getting some major help by Alisha Crump and Asley Jordan. The Mavs have been hoping to get a chance to redeem themselves against the areas #1 team, Wagner. Camacho vs Hastings! Harper vs Brown! Rodriguez vs Engleman! Roberson vs Crump! Let's hope we get to see this at UTSA, in front of a couple thousand of fans and for the right to go to Austin.

Judson- The return of Aleshia Flowers has helped sparked the Rockets. Ciara McLee is making her case for being one a top 5 shooting guards in the city.

Katy Korioth- The New Braunfels Canyon guard gave Steele 31 points last night in a win. She helped her team snap a 28 game district winning streak by Steele. Korioth is on a mission right now and has hit the twenty point mark several times over the last few weeks while shooting a very impressive 50% from the floor for the entire season.

Meighan Simmons- The #10 ranked player in the Nation for 2010 has dropped 40 on a couple of opponents this past week including 41 in a loss to Canyon. Please be reminded of her torrid scoring past in the playoffs last year. She gets en fuego about this time of the season.

Julissa Garrett- Garrett has jumped into the Top 5 in the city in scoring by putting up some big numbers lately. She joins Jay teammate, Erica Donavon(#4) as the highest scoring tandem in the city. If Garrett can continue to get buckets and facilitate the offense, Jay is going to be a nightmare for opponents come playoffs.

Raven Reyes-The 6'2 project from Fox Tech has recorded 19 points in consecutive games. The freshman has not realized a tenth of her potential and will be a college player if she continues to focus. Any knowledgeable fan knows that bigs tend to develop at a slower pace and this young big has a long way to go. But, recording back to back 19 point games while her team was fighting for a play off spot must be recognized.
