More accolades for 2024 Joyce Edwards based on her recent tourney performance noted previously:

Bold emphasis mine:

MOP - 2024 - Wing - Joyce Edwards - Camden HS (SC) - Lead the event with averages of 21 Points and 19 Rebounds, added 3.3 Assist, 3 Steals and 2.7 Blocks per game, the all out effort and drive to win made this the most outstanding individual performance in my time covering this event.

1/5

Ashlon Jackson scored 25 points in a game not quite as competitive as the last: 102-9.

I believe Ashlon played club ball with Nyah Green, who recently transferred to Duke. Might not be directly related, but there could be a connection as they might actually get to play together a year or two at Duke.

Looking back, maybe not as much as I'd hoped. KK Bransford is in the same position. I'd be overjoyed to get Clardy instead.
Isn't Clardy '23? Still in the '22 UCONN guard mix I got Rice, Isai, Bransford and Paris.

Hopefully........... in women's soccer :cool:
Kara Lawson is gathering some thoroughbred horses =3 top 20 ish recruits in Bollin, Jackson & Green. Eventually those thoroughbreds will have to come out of the barn and get a good run in. Otherwise they'll grow up to only be show ponies=not ready for prime time.

They could be playing together for as many as 4 years. Green will have 5 years of eligibility starting in the 21-22 season and Jackson arrives in 22.

While I'm one of Kara's fans, and am glad to see she's getting some talented players, which, as Geno says, is a prerequisite to championships, let's hope she can "coach them up" and become one of UCONN's true rivals...but, as many former players turned coach have found, it ain't easy!

No doubt. I love Kara more than most but I'm die heart UCONN fan and would be severely disappointed if UCONN didn't make it tough on her. We don't have to resort to the beat downs of the JPM era, I'd settle for a double digit UCONN win. :D

Prior to pandemic, a student-athlete gets 5 years to play 4. She redshirted in 2019-20; so, that's one of those years exhausted. This 2020-21 season doesn't exhaust eligibility for anyone. So, she has 4 seasons remaining beginning in 2021-22 unless I'm missing something.
