The Wiggins Waves program will do its share of traveling this summer, but the San Diego based club will have a tremendous event in their own back yard when the season begins. The Wiggins Waves will be competing against top flight competition at the 2015 La Jolla Memorial Day Classic. The event, which will be run by the renowned All Star Girls Report staff, will be played May 23-24 at the La Jolla Country Day High School.
The highest profile members of Wiggins Waves this year will be Mai-Loni Henson and Alaysia Styles. Henson is a 6-0 guard who is rated as the No. 86 recruit in the Class of 2016 by the All Star Girls Report. Styles is a 6-2 wing player who is listed at No. 26 in the Class of 2017 by ASGR.
While Henson and Styles are the headliners, the Wiggins Waves program has plenty of talented players throughout the program. If the group has one defining characteristic, it’s that many of these athletes can be described as intelligent basketball players.
“I think that when you look at the top teams in college, the teams that win championships, you see something a little different,” noted Coach Terri Bamford. “It seems like all the teams have great athletes, but to win championships you need kids that play with high energy, a high motor, and a high IQ. There are some athletes out these who can run and shoot, but they aren’t very good at running an offense. In order to be really successful, college teams need the kids who bring something extra.”
