Location: Landover Hills, Maryland
2018-19 record: 40-3
Final 2018-19 Super 25 ranking: 1
Head Coach: Sam Caldwell

After winning the GEICO National Championship in just its second year as a program, the New Hope girls basketball team remains on top for the preseason Super 25.

Jada Walker, the MVP of the tournament who averaged 23 points per game as a sophomore, returns as a preseason ALL-USA player, and Delicia Pinnick, the sharpshooter who had a team-high 13 points in the championship game, is now a senior.

Newcomers Tara Cousins, a Delaware commit, and Flera Vinerte, a San Diego State commit, are expected to play big roles.

It was a quick ride to the top for the Tigers, who went 14-15 in their first year and then won the championship in year two. But as the adage goes, it’s more difficult to stay at the top than get there. They’ll take on the challenge this season.
