Here is the background on the title for tonight’s Basketball Blog, as it got me thinking this evening, I wonder what those girls that played Guilford County high school basketball are doing now that they are playing women’s college basketball and after seeing Paris Kea(UNC) and Shay Burnett(Elon) go at it(Sunday), I decided we need to add a few more names to our list….

Background on “I wonder what she’s doing tonight?”…..Barry & the Tamerlanes were a doo wop trio from California. Their 1963 single for Valiant Records, “I Wonder What She’s Doing Tonight”, spent 10 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #21, while reaching #23 on Billboard’s “Hot R&B Singles”. “Barry” was Barry De Vorzon, who went on to considerable success as a film music composer; the group’s other members were Terry Smith and Bodie Chandler.

Now on to our list and if you have more names, make a basketball move and pass them along…We always leave somebody, so let us know who it was….

    Makala Rouse(Dudley)is still at Campbell. Averaging 8 pts. a game.

  • Andy Durham said,

    Yes, I had her listed the other day as a junior starter for Campbell and she is there along with H. Barber from NWG…

    Failed to do follow-up on Rouse and thanks for bringing ‘Rouse to the House’…..

  • Andy Durham said,

    You posting these names sure brings back a lot of names from the past like Helen Terry, Breona Patterson and Desire Drayton from Dudley, Miranda Jenkins from EG, the Coffer sisters with Samantha and Amanda from Northern, Trumae Lucas, Nicole Hargraves, Amber Cook, Jasmine Alston and others from Grimsley, Drew and others from Page, and here is a name that just just came back to me and this makes me know I still have some of it left upstairs, how about Jasmine Gill from Page….Boy and how about Zena Lovette and many more like Alyssa Munson from over there at NWG and the Clency kid from WG, and many more…Who are we leaving out, and you may say who haven’t we left out??? Give us some more fuel on the fire, but we have brought back some good names here at Christmas and don’t forget Julius Brooks on the boys side….Heard he was still playing pro ball along with Eric Hicks over in Germany, Spain or somewhere and how about Jackson Kent???? Think he is in his last year at JMU and we need more here brothers and sisters…

    What ever happened to our old pal Nini Whitaker??? Last I heard she was out there raising a family and for many it comes to that and you have to get to work and take care of the business on the home front…

    I think the other young lady on the Grimsley Five was Kristin Fields…Lucas, Hargraves, Cook, Alston and Fields…I hope I am in the right fields, with Fields…

  • Andy Durham said,

    And how about ole’ Mercedes King from NEG, man that is a name from the past…

  • Andy Durham said,

    And I need to look up and see if Kennedy Currie is still over at High Point U….Great one from the past…And all of these are not necessarily the great talents some might be thinking, but good talents and great kids…

    KC is still at HPU, but no stats so far this season…
