695HOOPS WHERE IT'S ALWAYS ALL ABOUT THE GIRLS
Perry Hall's 5'9" shooting guard Kinross Obiefule is set up nicely for a breakout season. This explosive Junior can play multiple positions and she uses her freaky athletic ability to punish defenders. The soft spoken Nigerian can take you off the dribble or spot up from long range and she went one on one with 695Hoops shortly after a 22 point, 12 rebound performance against North Harford.
