The Texas D1 Ambassadors-Team 2014 tipped off the first game of the league against Hays High School. The young group of 8th/9th graders set the bar, as they took Hays down to the last shot. Down 2 with 4 seconds left in the game Team, 2014 got off a good shot but came up short. Team 2014 has been recognized as one of the most competitive teams in the Cen-Tex area, and around the state.

Akins played really well today. The Eagles will be a tough match up also, as they have one of the top guards in the area. 2011 G 5'5 Vanessa Winston can get it done. Vanessa has excellent ball handling skills with the ability to get to the basket. Winston has excellent court vision and great range on her shot. Look for Vannessa to be a dominant force this season.

Austin High Wins!
Wimberley High School
Played well to come out on top against Crockett
2011 G 5'5 Tashanique Jones
LBJ High School
Smooth point guard with great athleticism. Jones has great handles & don't mind attacking the basket. The junior guard will run the point again for LBJ this year and will be a huge asset to their success. Tashanique will suit up with the D-1 Ambassadors when they head to Frisco Texas in a few weeks for the Premier Basketball Showcase Event.
