Belibi: Dunk-ready for Bangkok, drawing inspiration from LeBron and Serena, May 28, 2019

While the team-first concept is rightly at the top of the list for USA rising star Fran Belibi, she might still find herself catapulted further into the limelight by making FIBA U19 Women’s Basketball World Cup history.
The current buzz around the teenager could be about to rocket skywards if she becomes the first player to throw down a dunk at the event – something which is certainly not out of the question. You only have to take a look at her ever-expanding online collection of throw-downs, all of which are a sensation with fans around the globe.

Meet Stanford-Bound Haley Jones, the Top-Ranked High School Women’s Player in the Country

Gary R. Blockus,, May 10, 2019

  • Haley Jones is the little engine that could.

    Check that. Haley Jones is the big engine that can.

    The 6-foot-1 guard, who played four years at Archbishop Mitty High School in San Jose, California, without missing the academic honor roll, is simply spectacular. She creates shots, scores from everywhere and is an enthusiastic rebounder. 

    The Stanford-bound Jones, ranked as the No. 1 prospect in the espnW HoopGurlz Top 100, won the Naismith Trophy as the Girls’ High School Player of the Year.

    How good is she? Jones passed three-time Olympic gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings (beach volleyball) as Mitty’s all-time leading scorer with 2,127 points, and set the school career record for shooting percentage at 63%.
