Top Row – 2021 Mia Moore of St. Francis; 2019 FIU Commit Cheyenne Daniels of Ferguson; 2019 Anaia Hoard of Wesleyan — Middle Row – 2018 VA Tech signee Shaniya Jones; 2018 VA Tech signee Elizabeth Kitley of NW Guilford; MVP 2019 Kaelynn Satterfield of CTK; 2020 Amirah Abdur-Rahim of St. Francis — Bottom Row – 2018 Miss St. signee Jessika Carter of Harris Co.; 2018 Asia Smith of Myrtle Beach; 2019 Tatiana Jones of Neumann-Goretti

Myrtle Beach, SC – A few days before Christmas each year McDonalds All American voter and Myrtle Beach Mayor John Rhodes puts on a great event with 16 of the best HS girls basketball teams mainly from the east coast.  Christ the King emerged to win the event beating St. Francis in the Title game.

The All CBHI Tournament Team –

MVP – Kaelynn Satterfield – Christ the King (NY) – 2019 6′ G – Hit a ton of big shots and created scoring opportunities for her teammates all while facilitating the CTK offense.

Amirah Abdur-Rahim – St. Francis (GA) – 2020 6’3 G – Helped St. Francis all the way to the title game and was their best player during the course of the tournament.

Brandy Thomas – Christ the King (NY) – 2018 5’10 G/F – Had back to back double figure games in the semis and finals.  Added a double digit rebounding game in the finals as well.  Production matters.

Shaniya Jones – Wesleyan (NC) – 2018 5’6 PG – The VA Tech signee got to the rim with ease and used her explosive athleticism and handles to create space for her to get off plenty of scoring opportunities.

Jessika Carter – Harris County (GA) – 2018 6’4 Post – Statistically the top player at the event.  Posted a double double in every game and was close to 20 rebounds twice (19).  Was so good individually she carried her team on her back to the semifinals.  Signed at Mississippi State.

Sydni Harvey – Brentwood Academy (TN) – 2018 5’8 PG – The unsigned PG couldn’t get her team past Jessika Carter and Harris Co., but lead them to a 3-1 record in the tournament playing one of the toughest schedules.

Top 5 Teams at the CBHI –

  1. Christ the King (NY) – Played in the bottom part of the bracket which was considerably tougher than the top half and won their way to the Championship.  They had consistent inside (Thomas, Klarke Sconiers & Natalija Marshall) and outside play (Satterfield) on a well balanced team.
  2. St. Francis (GA) – Made it to the title game where they lost to CTK.  Senior Jordan Issacs played limited to no minutes in some of the games although dropped 19 points in 21 minutes in the title game.  Her presence throughout may have helped provide some additional consistency to St. Francis’s young roster.
  3. Wesleyan (NC) – Had the best backcourt in the event with Shaniya Jones, ’19 Anaia Hoard and Nicole Mackey.  Didn’t have enough size, strength or experience down low to compete with CTK.
  4. Brentwood (TN) – Some tough hard nosed competitors in Sydni Harvey, Makaila Wilson and crew.  Got off to a slow start and couldn’t contain Jessika Carter inside in their lone loss to Harris County, a game that they arguably should have, could have won and would probably win 9 times out of 10.  Otherwise beat a high quality NW Guilford team and a loaded Winder Barrow team.
  5. Winder Barrow (GA) – Had a solid inside/outside combination of Olivia Nelson-Ododa inside and ’19 Chellia Watson & COC signee Latrice Perkins outside.  Had a final game let down vs Brentwood but beat a good Neumann-Goretti & Ferguson.  Played CTK to their closest game, a 3 point loss that could have gone either way.

Quick Notables –

Carleigh Wilson – Brentwood Academy – 2022 G/F 5’9 – The wiry G/F had some tough defensive assignments and more than held her own guarding Jessika Carter and Olivia Nelson-Ododa as Brentwood didn’t have many options down low. Played with a high motor.

Asia Smith – Myrtle Beach – 2018 F 6′ – Great athlete with a nice basketball build.  Wasn’t as productive as she could have been in some of the games, but has real upside and the potential to play on the D-1 level.

Shillae Campbell – Myrtle Beach – 2022 PG 5’2 – Small PG with a lot speed and spunk.  Got to the rim vs a tough CTK team.  Will continue to grow physically and as a player and I certainly look forward to seeing that growth.

Tatiana Jones – Neumann Goretti – 2019 F 5’11 – Total beast with an inside/outside game.  Moves well with a strong thick athletic build.  Guard skills in a power forward body.  A high level player who has to focus on finishing easy baskets more consistently.

Devyn Wilson – Norcross – 2018 F 6′ – Very similar player to Jones (above).  Guard in a power forward body.  Has the versatility to play and guard multiple possessions.

Mia Moore – St. Francis – 2021 PG 5’6 – Fast, athletic guard, looking to score and can do so from all 3 levels.  Does a good job of pushing the ball in transition.  Tough competitor.  Needs to add greater consistency as she gets older.

Anaia Hoard – Wesleyan – 2019 SG 6′ – Smart, high IQ player.  Can score in a variety of ways, but can really stroke the 3 ball.  Great size at the position and not lacking in athleticism.  Poised.

Taziaha Fanning – Harris Co. – 2019 PF 6′ – Strong, physical player who feeds off of offensive rebounds and constant attention paid to Jessika Carter.  Scores consistently around the basket.  Great body at the D-1 level.  Under the radar talent.
