With the season right around the corner, things are really heating up in Fall league play. D-1 Nation was on hand this week to check out some key match ups & players in the Pville Fall league. I had a chance to catch District 25-5A power house Pflugerville High Match up against 4A power house LBJ.
Pflugerville High School Lady Panthers
This game had a playoff atmosphere as the stands was packed to capacity to see some of the top talent around the area. 2011 P 6’1 Nneka Enemkpali continues to be a beast around the basket. The 6’1 Senior lead Pflugerville to the state tourney in 2009, and she be a huge factor for the panthers this season. Nneka is being highly recruit by several D-1 schools including the University of Texas.
2012 W 5’10 Alexis Hyder of LBJ continues to show dominance in District 26 4A. Hyder has really elevated her game. Alexis has excellent ball handling, passing, and shooting skills with great moves to the basket. Hyder is continuously increasing her range and will be a major impact player for the Jags this season. Look for Hyder to be a major prospect in the class of 2012. College Coaches Alert!

2012 G 5’6 Jasmyn Booker
Pflugerville High School
Jasmyn is a nice smooth point guard with a high basketball IQ. The 5’6 PG has great handles with the ability to get to the rim. Jasmyn has great range on her shot and will be a nice impact player for the Panther this season.
2011 W 5’10 Tierany Henderson (Left)
2011 F 5’11 De’ Mesheon Hyder (Right)
2011 W 5’10 Tierany Henderson is a great slasher with solid skill. The 5’10 junior has nice size and should be a huge impact for the Jags this season. Henderson has solid handles with a nice mid range shot. Look for Henderson to be a tough match up this season in district
2011 P 5’11 Dy’ Mesheon Hyder will be a big part of the Panthers success this season.
De’ Mesheon has a powerful presence in the post very physical, but mobile post player that coaches love. Good to great low post scorer and physical rebounder. Good shooter and is developing her range. She is good at holding her position on defense. Wide body that can run the court.

2013 W 5’11 Diana Omozee
2013 W 5’11 Diana Omozee has nice size with great athleticism. The true sophomore works very hard defensively, and has nice footwork around the basket. Diana has nice ball handling, & passing skills. Diana will suit up with the JV team this season and will do great things. Look for Diana to be a nice prospect in the class of 2013. College Coaches Alert!
LBJ WINS BY SIX
