    Is this the same player that rarely played at Dudley?

    Must have had a good summer…..

    I think she had a death in the family a few years ago and now things are really starting to come back together for her….

    Keep up the good work and good luck Amanda…

    I don’t know exactly why she didn’t play at Dudley. Had to be something bigger than basketball but it surely wasn’t because she was incapable of competing. I felt then and now that she was hands down the most dominant player in that conference last year. Maybe even the area. She can ball!!!

    This is what happens when you work hard and no matter how many obstacles people try to throw your way, one day you can sit back and say “look at me now”.
    I am so proud of Mandi! She didnt let any set backs hender to dream to play at the next level. I know her dad is looking down at her, smiling with so much joy. The sky is the limit!

    I am Amanda’s mother and I’d like to say I am so proud of my daughter and thanks for posting this wonderful news here in her hometown. Thank you to everyone who supported her and believed in her during some very tough times. I know there has been much speculation about what was going on at Dudley while she was there and all I will say is that no one ever said life would be fair. They say what doesnt kill you makes you stronger. She is doing extremely well at Bethune and is working with a team of coaches who appreciate her and show her nothing but love.
