695HOOPS WHERE IT'S ALWAYS ALL ABOUT THE GIRLS
Dejhonae Cannady spent the last four years trying to put Coppin Academy basketball on the map. She put up huge numbers at the charter school and went over 1,000 career points in her junior year. She recently chose to attend Chesapeake College, where she will get back on track and then decide which one of the D1 schools she will finish her career with. In the two senior all star events she played in, she stood out both times with stellar play. Read her interview below.
