Another year in the books, Queens Court featured some talent across Central and Northern California, and one trooper from Oklahoma. It’s always great to see a great group of talent and players we haven’t seen before come together under one roof. Since it was our 3rd year we had to out do it with the development part so special thanks to guest speaker Tierra Rogers (Former Cal Lady Bear), Daneisha Stallworth (Kentucky) Courtney Range (Cal) Kelli Hayes (UCLA), Elite IQ Hoops, Reps on Reps, Marcus Maxwell, and Hungry and Humble Basketball for making it a challenge on the drills.Thanks to our Media Outlets Harold Abend of Cal-Hi and Stacey Harris and crew from NSR Report.
