The No Boyz Allowed League entered their third week of play this week. Wednesday night's games featured Locked and Lodied (Immaculate Conception from Lodi, NJ), KJ Kidz (Newark Tech HS), NJ Flow (University HS), Lady Ghosts (Eastside HS), Jewelz of Gladstone (Gil St Bernard HS), Diamond Girlz (This is an all-star team comprised of players from a variety of different high schools), and The Cotton Club (Arts HS).
The second game featured the Lady Ghosts vs. NJ Flow. The Lady Ghosts are a tremendous team. They know each other very well, work together on traps, and run the floor hard. The best play of the night occured when Kayla Diaz attacked the basket on a fast break and did a no-look bounce pass behind her to Taylor Brown, who was trailing. Taylor shot faked and dished it off to a teammate who was cutting to the basket to score from the right block. The Lady Ghosts led at the half-time, 31-6. Pictures are included in the slideshow. The game was called with 4 minutes remaining, the score 52-15. Pictures are included in the slideshow.
The third game of the night featured The Diamond Girlz vs. The Jewelz of Gladstone. The Jewelz of Gladstone's sophomore Alexia Allesch is a tremendous force inside. She is strong, has good footwork, and can finish off both hands. The half-time score was 16-13. The Diamond Girlz team is loaded with talent. They can score from the outside, creatively attack the basket, and they have size, strength, and speed. They are currently undefeated in the league and won the championship last year.
