695HOOPS WHERE IT'S ALWAYS ALL ABOUT THE GIRLS
I talked to one of the bright young coaches in the area, Alexis Washington of the Lady Lions, about her playing days and her coaching career as well. Alexis is best known for leading her 1992 Lady Lions to a Maryland State AAU title, but as the founder of SOLE magazine she's about to be known for even more.
695: Freeplay sounds like it was the team to beat...
Coach: At that time Freeplay was the best program out, it was elite. I played up after my freshman year with the girls from Western & SFA. We had one chick from St. Mary's too. It was insane, I think every person on the team went D1. They were all the big-time girls from the 95 Western & the SFA squad was tough too. The Burroughs ran it with Dwayne coaching. I played with Melba Chambers, Kim Smith(Gtown), Jakia Ervin(Syracuse), Anetta Davis(Syracuse), Webb Twins (Pitt & Coppin), Danielle Jackson (Seton Hall), Tesha Tinsley (Northeastern but led the nation in scoring there her senior year), Felicia Burroughs (Neastern), Janell (Hampton), Lisa Jackson. I think that was all of us. Chanel Wirght played too before I got there .
