The Dayton Lady Hoopstars lost a lot from their 2013 roster, but the program has done a nice job of re-loading.
“We only have two players back from last year, but I’m excited about this group. I’m optimistic that we will do well,” said Coach Jerry Rex. “We had to re-vamp our team, but we brought in a group of players who come from successful high school programs, and they have good high school coaches.”
That unit will debut in a regional tournament in early April, and then they will head to the Deep South Classic, which will be played in Raleigh, NC, on April 25-27. Now in its 17th year, the Deep South Classic annually hosts many of the nation’s elite travel teams in a field that will eclipse 200 squads, and hundreds of collegiate coaches will be on hand searching for talent. The 2014 event will mark the second year that the Deep South Classic has been held at the Raleigh Convention Center. The venue was a tremendous success in its debut last year, with all games played at one site on 18 courts, and it is in a convenient central location.
