New Merchandise Dropping this Spring

Sunshine State Showdown Recap

 

 

This past weekend the girls’ basketball community allowed me to attend the inaugural club season tournament in Florida The Sunshine State Showdown. Hosted by SUTS Scouting Report; Essence Girls Basketball, and the Miami Suns organization. There were teams from as far as Iowa on display and there was not a poor matchup played all weekend. Each program brought star power and intriguing individual matchups as well as stylistic differences, and they did not disappoint. 

 

Below you will find a brief synopsis of the weekend.  


  • FBC - United is loaded with talent multiple ranked players, and many high level D1 athletes 


  • Miami Suns play great as a team, and have chemistry 


  • Essence Tip Hayes Purple is tough they play with passion behind ‘22s Janiah Barker & Sydney Bowles 


  • Despite the star studded names of other clubs Team Candice Dupree plays solid, and is well coached with a super heady PG in ‘22 Aryana Hicks 


  • Hoop Dreams Elite is on the rise; they competed with some of the best in the tournament


  •  CFE has some good young talent coming up in Omaria Gordon & Zoe Tennell 


  • All Iowa Attack Plays hard and smart, high IQ players 


  • It’s refreshing to see the young girls play the right way, not worry about themselves and have fun like FGB Orlando 2028 did.  The game at its purest.
