    Just wondering if she will praise her Eastern Guilford team by saying they played “Dudley Panther basketball.”

    andy, you forgot about the STATE championship she won at Dudley, but eastern guilford got a good one!

    I remember that title well and Eastern has the mention of it in their press release….Yes, I was at that game and saw the Lady Panthers win it all with Helen Terry, Breonna Patterson and Desiree Drayton at the foul line hitting those free throws in the second half to preserve that win….They knocked off Shannon Smith and Forestview at Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh, on the N.C. State campus….A great day for Coach Kris Britton and Dudley women’s basketball….
