Announcements and Important Events
4. Southfield A&T (16-6, Division 1)
The Warriors were going to be good anyway, but now they could be terrific. Alexis Johnson (Marshall), 5-10, averaged 20 points and 12 rebounds in the post last season and teamed with junior Cheyenne McEvans, 5-10, and her 16 points and 10 rebounds to give the Warriors a dynamite one-two scoring punch. Now Soleil Barnes (Toledo), who averaged 16 points and seven rebounds in Cleveland last winter, has moved to town. Add 6-3 junior Jasmine Worthy, a transfer from Birmingham Groves, and now Johnson will transition to the wing. Sophomore Kayiona Willis begins her second season as the starting point guard and she has improved immensely.
Tournament road: The district at Mumford will be difficult because Mumford plays so well at home and Renaissance has some talented players. A trip to the regionals will mean an opening game against Warren Cousino and then a regional final against Grosse Pointe North or Birmingham Marian. Macomb Dakota seems a likely quarterfinal opponent before heading to Calvin College for the final four.
