Players who just missed making Dandy Dozen

Usually, filling out the final one or two spots on the Dandy Dozen comes down to a number of players. With that in mind, here’s a look at the Mississippi girls basketball standouts who just missed the cut.

KYOENIA HARRIS, G, RAYMOND

The senior averaged 14.3 points, 4.2 assists and 2.4 steals a year ago, helping the Rangers make their second straight appearance in the state tournament and finish 27-7.

AMBER LANDING, C, MRA

The Arkansas-Little Rock commit played an integral role in leading the Patriots to the MAIS overall championship game last season and is one of the best shot-blockers in the state. Landing nearly averaged a double-double as a junior with 13 points, 8 rebounds and 6 blocks per game. She recorded two triple-doubles.

TORRI LEWIS, G, MHEA

Lewis, an Ole Miss commit, led MHEA to a 33-7 record last season and a runner-up spot in the national home-school tournament. The 2015 sharpshooter made a name for herself on the AAU circuit with a quick release that makes it hard for opponents to anticipate and defend.

JALEIGHA POLK, G, TUPELO

As a junior, Polk led the Golden Wave to a division championship, averaging 13.9 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 3.8 steals per game. A gifted 3-point shooter, Polk was named to the MAC North All-Star team and finished with offensive MVP honors.
