Loree Moore and ebony Hoffman co-MVP in 1997-2001 in the book of phenoms like Tayor Butler and Atoe jackson are Narbonne Gauchos Wnba LA. SParKs will be their award. Mater dei Hackers good luck saturday.


Number one in the nation by many sources is Narbonne co-MVP Tailer butler and atoe Jackson in the book of phenoms is Narbonne 1997-2001 Loee Moore and Ebony Hoffman both Sparks.


Thank goodness Gatorade saw fit to avoid litigation and name Mosqueda-Lewis as National Player of the Year!

I will bet Mater Dei had their team of lawyers ready to file an emergency Stay in order to keep any of the other candidates from actually claiming the player of the year honors over their girl.

Congratulations, young lady! You aew a great player with an even better legal team behind you.
