10th Year Seniors Plays of the Week

It’s Friday, so that means 10th Year Seniors’s Plays of the Week. Let’s get it!

At No. 5: Butler to Jacques for the slam.

At No. 4: Shot clock expiring, no problem for Trinity Bodie. She’s in range once she steps in the gym.

At No. 3: Shout out to Eprhaim Hepburn not just for this move, but for being the only person born after 1915 named Ephraim. They’re definitely not making Ephraim’s anymore.

Coming in At No. 2: Iowa may have Caitlin Clark, but C.V. Bethel has Tahjaniqua Morley. This is real speed.

And of course, our No. 1 should only take 7.67 seconds to watch. Deynne Charlton, the best in the world. Of all time.
