"The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me." - Ayn Rand
I'm excited to announce that we have officially added a women's team. This group of strong, creative individuals will be dedicated to providing a platform for the girls in the #HoopState. Right now we are blessed in North Carolina to be home to not one, but two top 10 players in America. Wilmington native, Saniya Rivers, is headed to South Carolina next season while her counterpart, Teonni Key, a wing from Cary, NC headed to UNC.
Our last YouTube feature on women's basketball featured Lexie Brown and it went viral AF. Not every video will be that, most will not lol but every video is a new opportunity. This feature we just did with Saniya Rivers (Ashley High School), I wasn't there for the shoot but I edited the project and here's what I learned:
Saniya Rivers is a star. On the court - a killer. Off the court - an absolutely amazing person with an even better personality.
While being top heavy in talent, we also run the John Wall Holiday Invitational girls event every year, which we will look to amplify the coverage of the event moving forward - which will include live streaming. Through the power of Phenom, we will look to host girl events in the summer including elite showcases and intense team atmospheres across the Carolina's. How about an elite 24 game every year for the girls and guys in NC? Let's do it all.
The perfect place to start our coverage is with the debut of "Her Hoop State." Episode 1 features top 3 senior, Saniya Rivers, and a mini look into her life including a workout with our team. Hit the links below and let our ladies know who to cover and why and of course tell us what you want to see! I'm excited to build this platform, it's long overdue. Ladies, your time is now.
