Purdue looking at another Cleveland area post
In addition to interest this year in center Megan Skouby and interest in the 2007 class in Jantel Lavender, Purdue has been mentioned taking a look at 6'1 junior post Ta-myra Davis of Firestone HS (OH).
Her forte is rebounding and interior defense, and is said to have a motor that does not stop. In Firestone's last game on Monday, Davis had 18 points, 14 rebounds, two blocked shots and four steals.
Davis averaged 16.1 points, 17 rebounds and seven blocked shots as a sophomore. Purdue, Xavier, Virginia Tech, Ohio State, Kansas, Cincinnati, Illinois, UTEP and most of the Mid-American and Horizon conference teams have been showing interest.
Davis was also named all-City first team in volleyball.
WHMB-TV40 Games of interest
Over the next month and a half, WHMB-TV40 will be showing some high school games of interest to Purdue fans. WHMB broadcasts on UHF Channel 40, but is also picked up by many central Indiana cable companies. In the Lafayette area on Insight Cable, WHMB is on cable channel 9.
On December 29th, WHMB will broadcast the Girls' Hall of Fame Classic, featuring an early day matchup between Dee Dee Jernigan's East Chicago Central and Fahkara Malone's Evansville Memorial. The broadcast begins at 2:00pm. Later that evening, the loser of the game will play again at 6:00pm, while the winner will follow in the championship game at 8:00pm. Purdue fans will have three games on the 29th to watch two of Purdue top targets in the class of 2006.
Then about a month later, two other Purdue verballed recruits will have games rebroadcast on WHMB. On January 28 at 9:00pm, Ta'Shia Phillips and Brebeuf will face Indianapolis Chatard. And on February 1 at a time yet to be announced, Amber Harris and North Central will play Kokomo.
WHMB is also the station to tune in to see a variety of sectional games, and the broadcast of the IHSAA state championship games.
Jareica Hughes stat line
For the Michigan basketball season that just ended, junior Jareica Hughes averaged 16 points, 5.0 assists, 7.0 steals and 6.0 rebounds, leading Southfield-Lathrup to the Class A semifinal game. She also maintians a 2.9 GPA.
"Thatís how much respect I have for Jodi. All the girls on the floor did a good job of knowing where she was. We hedged high on screens. We wanted to interrupt the flow of her offense. She is a player virtually capable of beating you by herself with only four points from a few teammates here and there."
