Houston Dream

By Girlz Prep Report, 03/25/22, 9:15AM CDT




Trey Phillips, Brandon Patterson, and Jason Bibbs are a trio of Houston Dream coaches I have known for, well almost ever. Bibbs and Patterson were out here before and Trey, who is also director of the Dream, a few later when his daughter played for the insiders and he was one of the coaches so our ties are like a knot you can't, well untie and I speak often about those lying to you about their make-believe resumes who just pop-up and pop-off, these men have been helping since day 1 of me knowing them are among those true developers so I was excited to grab a glimpse of one their "on the rise" squads



Jaziel King (Randle) scores off the dribble and can drop the long ball yet her court vision set her teammates up nicely for baskets

Ifemena Nwora (Randle) strong rebounder, on both ends, doesn't mind battling and defended well

Mana Yusuf (Fort Bend Austin) understands positioning around the basket, goes after the ball off the rim, is athletic, and can defend "on the ball"

Jayla Ford (Madison) SDM means "size don't matter" when you can play and she plays within herself, understands how to control the tempo, sees the floor 

Tiffany Nguyen (George Ranch) caught my eye a while back, heady, stays under control, and can score multiple ways 


 Alaysia Cook (Bay City) is long and athletic with a pull-up jumper, yes, so watching her not only drop it from outside but rebound and go coast to coast and finish was nice. HUGE upside

Samirah Guinn (Fort Bend Travis) is long and athletic, nice first step to attack the basket with either hand, also defended well

Laressa Allison (Fort Bend Marshall) is athletic, goes hard on both ends, solid defender and plays the passing lane, goods upside 

Rendi Taylor (Manvel) creates her shot under pressure, understands when to take it and can drop it, also brings heat defensively
