This is big for women's hoops

Jada Williams and Ysabella Fontleroy joining the Banshee program.

With his obvious coaching and recruiting ability, I believe that Coach Neighbors is about to take the Hogs to an Elite level that competes for the national title every season

Banshees head coach Mike Charles is heck of a basketball coach. Very impressed with his coaching skills. Also an excellent skills coach if you want your boy or girl to improve their basketball skills. You will see a difference.

Is there an ex Razorback player or a major donor to the Lady Razorbacks that is a primary source of funds for the Banshee’s program?

Mike’s a big Razorback fan, lol.

Ha Ha. No, I was being serious.

I’m just not familiar with Women’s AAU teams. Many of the boys AAU teams, like the Wings Elite programs, are sponsored by Alumni who’ve made it in the NBA.

Portis, for the last few years has financially supported the Arkansas Wings Elite teams in the NIKE EYBL. Dusty Hannah’s dad supported the U-17 Wings Elite during the 2 years Dusty played on it. I assume the UA foundation or the athletic dept. would not be allowed to support an AAU team.

Where do the Banshee’s get funds for uniforms, travel, etc?

I can say Coach Charles is a good guy! Dealt with him when he coached boys! Nice guy/good coach! ghg

grand daughter played AAU ball (not the Banshees)the last few summers…it fell on her parents to pay for uniforms;shoes;and equipment bag…the team’s sponser paid for tournaments’entry fees;and practice time at a local school or city owned facility’’'don’t know of any big sponser aka a Portis or Joe Johnson
