For a group of freshmen and sophomores to face this competition exemplifies the new philosophy of the city's brightest organizations. The want to get better by facing better competition is a major reason that San Antonio is producing nationally respected prospects.
SA Lady Hoops: This group of youngsters played "up" two grades and still vanquished opponents by double digits. Amber Ramirez(2016) is ready! She faced players two/three years older and still her hit her trademark three ball and used her slick handle to make defenders look silly in the Extravaganza.
TeamXpress: Is loaded as usual with a front line that goes, 6'4, 6'4 and a 6'7 eigth grader!
