30 Colorado high school girls basketball players to watch in 2023-24 CHSAA season
A look at 30 Colorado high school girls basketball players to keep an eye on during the 2023-24 CHSAA season.* : A UTSA commit and returning 6A all-state selection, the 5-foot-10 fourth-year varsity guard (11.5 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 2.4 spg, 2.0 apg) has grown along with a C.T. program looking to make serious noise after posting a breakout 19-win season. : A key figure alongside sophomore Kyla Hollier in the Rough Riders’ suffocating defense (2.3 spg, 0.9 bpg) and focal point of their offensive attack (14.0 ppg, 3.5 apg), the 6-foot all-state returnee has the defending 5A champions talking dynasty. : The 6-foot-2 wing joined Douglas County prior to her junior season and promptly turned in an all-state caliber campaign (20.0 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 2.3 spg) that powered Huskies’ first winning season in more than 17 years. : An young Eagles roster led by Baker’s all-state production (15.3 ppg, 4.0 apg, 2.0 spg) and fellow sophomore Ezra Simonich was ahead of schedule with a run to the 6A Great 8 last winter. With both players back, a return trip is likely. : As the 95th-ranked senior in the nation by , the last of the famed Belibi sisters has the goggles and the game (14.2 ppg, 8.1 rpg) to match her older siblings: both Division I athletes. She’s also got a spot waiting for her next fall on Harvard’s roster. : There may not be a player in the country who controls the key like the reigning state player of the year (21.4 ppg, 16.5 rpg, 3.8 bpg). Long and agile with a high hoops IQ, the 6-foot-4 Betts is the third-ranked Class of 2025 recruit in . Soon enough, she’ll be joining her older sister, Lauren, at UCLA. : Long Beach State and UNC have already made their interest known in Brown (8.1 ppg, 8.0 rpg, 1.5 bpg), a 6-foot-2 forward who combines the ball-handling ability of a guard with the shot-blocking and rebounding chops of a forward. : A critical part of the Bruins’ run to the 6A Final Four along with fellow Class of 2025 standouts Tiana Chambers and , the 5-foot-10 Chambers (9.5 ppg, 6.9 rpg, 2.6 spg) pairs lockdown defense with a strong offensive game. : A returning 6A all-state pick entering her third year as a varsity starter, the 6-foot guard (13.3 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 3.2 apg, 2.0 spg) has the length and athleticism to defend multiple positions on one end and the refined offensive game to run the show on the other. : The engine that powered last year’s 4A title team, the 5-foot-6 point guard (10.7 ppg, 4.8 apg, 3.9 spg) plays an all-gas, no-brakes brand of ball that leaves a mark on the game that far exceeds her stature. : Rated as the No. 10 sophomore in the nation by , the 6-foot-3 Crittendon will no doubt have a long list of college suitors vying for her services. After averaging 31.2 points, 10.0 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 2.9 steals and 2.0 blocks as a freshman, the bar’s already been set incredibly high. : The 2A player of the year as a sophomore (15.2 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 2.0 apg), Dille already has three state titles between what she’s done on the volleyball (2) and basketball (1) courts. It’s probably a safe bet that total grows over the next two years. : After narrowly missing out on the 4A Great 8, the Pumas are primed to make another leap with the 6-foot-4 Eschmeyer protecting the rim (4.9 bpg), cleaning up the glass (14.0 rpg) and scoring at will (19.5 ppg) as an all-state returnee. : After sitting out her junior season, the 6-foot-3 Creighton commit joins a talented Arapahoe team fresh off a trip to the 6A Final Four. With career averages of 11.3 points and 8.4 rebounds at Columbine, her addition could put the Warriors over the top. : There isn’t an aspect of the game that the 5-foot-7 Washburn commit fails to impact. Whether it’s as a defender (4.1 spg, 1.4 bpg), scorer (11.4 ppg) or facilitator (3.0 apg), Gomez does a little bit of everything for the Wolves. : The graduation of all-state guards Samantha Darnell and Hailee Wright from last year’s 5A runner-up means a larger role for Hess and fellow junior Brooklyn Jiricek. Hess’ production last season (10.1 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 1.9 spg) indicates she should be ready for the challenge. : A microwave scorer with range, the 6-foot-3 CSU commit needs only the slightest bit of daylight to get her shot. Even with teams focused on stopping her, Kramer scores efficiently (1,428 career points on 53% shooting) while also setting up teammates (1.9 apg) and holding things down on defense (2.6 spg, 1.8 bpg). : An elite ball-handler and shot creator, the reigning 1A player of the year took her all-around game up a notch (23.5 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 5.7 apg, 3.6 spg, 1.2 bpg) in leading the Briggsdale girls to their first state title last season. : The tandem of Marvel (19.5 ppg, 12.8 rpg, 4.3 spg) and fellow 4A all-state selection came within a game of leading D’Evelyn to a perfect 28-0 season. They get one more chance to finish the Job. : The 5-foot-6 four-year varsity contributor has been a double-digit scorer from the first day she suited up for the Ravens. After surpassing 1,000 career points near the end of her junior year (18.5 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 3.0 spg), she’s got one more season before heading off to Metro State. : The 5-foot-10 guard’s breakout junior season (11.6 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 3.0 apg, 2.2 spg) earned her second-team 5A all-state recognition and a state title last year. With a commitment to Lubbock Christian already set, a repeat performance is expected. : The go-to offensive weapon (15.4 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 1.2 apg) on last year’s 6A Sweet 16 team, the 5-foot-11 guard is just as capable of firing away from the outside as she is taking her defenders off the dribble. : The 6-foot-3 Schwertner took on a lead role (11.9 ppg, 7.9 rpg, 1.5 spg, 1.2 bpg) in the Mustangs’ rise to the 6A ranks last season. Bound for Boston U next fall, she’ll be counted on to help raise Mullen back among the state’s elite. : The 6-foot-2 Regis University commit averaged a double-double in each of her first three varsity seasons. Then she added more playmaking (2.8 apg) to her already formidable all-around game last winter (20.8 ppg, 11.5 rpg, 4.1 spg, 2.5 bpg). : The daughter of former Colorado Rockies utility man Terry Shumpert, the 5-foot-8 guard already has a commitment to the CU Buffs locked up. Now she joins a stacked Arapahoe backcourt to make a run at a 6A championship. : Nobody had a bigger hand in the Warriors’ surprise run to the 6A Final Four than Smith (18.5 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 1.7 spg), a shifty 5-foot-10 CSU commit who’s a threat to score from just about anywhere on the court. : An electric scorer at Sand Creek as a freshman (27.2 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 2.7 apg), the 5-foot-8 combo guard has a deep offensive game that should translate well to the 6A ranks and Mountain Vista. : A steady presence for the Eagles as an immediate starter over her first two varsity seasons, the 6-foot-3 wing enters her junior year with career averages of 13.7 points, 11.7 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game. : After a standout sophomore season (14.2 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 3.2 apg, 2.6 spg) that saw her earn 6A all-state honorable mention, the 5-foot-8 guard has multiple D-I offers on the table, including from Marquette and Utah State. : A threat from the outside (126 career 3s) and off the dribble (14.6 ppg, 4.0 apg, 1.8 spg), the 5-foot-7 DU commit is the other half of the Raiders’ formidable senior duo alongside Harvard-bound Hana Belibi.

Star Wars Director Says It's About Time A Woman Makes A Star Wars Movie
Jan 02, 2024
Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Sharmeed Obaid-Chinoy is directing an upcoming Star Wars movie that brings back Daisy Ridley in the role of Rey. Obaid-Chinoy will become the first woman to direct a Star Wars film, dating back to the franchise's origins in the 1970s. Speaking about this, Obaid-Chinoy told CNN that she is "very thrilled" to make the movie and create something that is "very special.""We're in 2024 now, and I think it's about time we had a woman come forward to shape the story in a galaxy far, far away," she said.Obaid-Chinoy won Best Documentary, Short Subjects Academy Awards for Saving Face (2012) and A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness (2015).In 2020, Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy told the BBC that a woman would eventually direct a Star Wars movie, saying that would "absolutely" happen, "without question." Victoria Mahoney was a second unit director on The Rise of Skywalker, but a woman has never claimed a top directing credit on a Star Wars movie.On the TV side of things, The Mandalorian has featured a number of female directors, including Deborah Chow and Bryce Dallas Howard. Chow went on to direct the Obi-Wan TV series, too.Another high-profile franchise that has never had a female director is James Bond. Producer Barbara Broccoli and Skyfall director Sam Mendes have both said they want to see a woman direct a future 007 film.As for Obaid-Chinoy's Star Wars movie, little is known about it apart from the fact that Ridley will come back to play Rey. It is expected that this film will be the first of the three new Star Wars films to come to theaters, possibly releasing in December 2025.According to a report, Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight is writing the Rey movie, taking over for Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson.

NBA Names Clare Akamanzi CEO Of NBA Africa
Jan 02, 2024 15:29
The NBA named Clare Akamanzi – an accomplished business executive and international trade and investment lawyer – as CEO of NBA Africa. Akamanzi will start her position on Jan. 23, 2024, and report to NBA Deputy Commissioner and Chief Operating Officer Mark Tatum. In this role, Akamanzi will oversee the NBA’s business and basketball development efforts in Africa and will be responsible for continuing to grow the popularity of basketball, the NBA and the Basketball Africa League (BAL) across the continent, including through grassroots basketball development, media distribution, corporate partnerships, and social responsibility initiatives that improve the livelihoods of African youth and families. For the last six and a half years, Akamanzi was CEO of Rwanda Development Board (RDB), where she spearheaded Rwanda’s economic development by enabling private sector growth. Under Akamanzi’s leadership, RDB implemented several business policy reforms and initiatives that led to significant investment and development for the country, including through partnerships with the BAL, Arsenal FC, Paris Saint-Germain FC, FC Bayern Munich and TIME Magazine, among others. “Clare’s business acumen, international experience and familiarity with basketball and the NBA make her the ideal executive to lead our business in Africa,” says Tatum. “NBA Africa and the Basketball Africa League are well-positioned for continued growth, and under Clare’s leadership we believe these initiatives will transform economies, communities and lives across the continent.” “I’ve seen firsthand how sports can positively impact businesses, families and communities in Africa, and the NBA and the BAL are a perfect example of that,” says Akamanzi. “The NBA has done an incredible job growing basketball and the economy around it across the continent, and I’m excited about the enormous opportunities ahead to build on that momentum.” Previously, Akamanzi was Chief Operating Officer of RDB and Head of Strategy and Policy Unit, Office of the President of the Republic of Rwanda. She has extensive international trade, business and diplomatic experience, having previously worked for the Rwandan Government at the World Trade Organization in Geneva, Switzerland and at the Rwandan Embassy in London, England. Akamanzi has worked or studied in seven different countries and holds an honorary LLD from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, in recognition of her work in Rwanda. She earned a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she was the recipient of three prestigious awards for academic excellence and distinguished contribution to the community: the Lucius N. Littauer Fellows Award, the Raymond & Josephine Vernon Award and the Robert Kennedy Public Service Award. In addition, Akamanzi holds a Master of Laws degree in international trade and investments from the University of Pretoria in South Africa, and a Bachelor of Laws degree from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Akamanzi has served on several company boards, including the World Health Organization (WHO) Foundation, ECOBANK and Aviation, Travel and Logistics (ATL) company. She was recognized by Forbes as one of Africa’s Top 50 Powerful Women in 2020.
