SUWANEE, GA — Hoopseen officially launched its women’s division with the Inaugural HoopseenW Georgia Cup II and Middle Georgia was well represented. Which mid-state programs and players stood out? Check out Hypesouth’s notes from the weekend.
11U-12U: Gabriel Minus, 2026, Middle Georgia PUSH, Bonaire Middle School
This young lady oozes upside and is well beyond her years. At 6-foot-1, she demonstrated next level court awareness and the ability to play every position on the floor. Everything considered, her ceiling is endless and we expect her to be a high major target moving forward.

14U-15U: Nevaeh Mack, 2024, Middle Georgia PUSH, Warner Robins High School
Mack is a confident combo guard that stays within herself. She doesn’t force the issue offensively and makes the right play more often than not, but what jumped off the screen was her ability to get it off the glass and start the fastbreak. Middle Georgia’s class of 2024 is deep and based on Mack’s continual progression, you have to consider her one of the top rising sophomores in the area.
14U-15U: Desteyn Seaton, 2024, Middle Georgia PUSH, Northside-Warner Robins High School
A versatile wing player that is effective inside-out. Seaton is a physical presence in the painted area whether it be crashing the boards or banging with her back to the basket, but also has the capacity to face-up and do damage from the midpost area extended. Seaton and Mack provided a powerful one-two punch for the PUSH all weekend.
JV (14U/15U): Talk about a dynamic duo! NevaehMack (#2) and Des’Teyn Seaton (#8) were fantastic for Middle GA PUSH in their win over the Macon Mystics. Mack finished with 20pts (5 threes). Seaton dominated the paint with 17pts of her own. #GaCup pic.twitter.com/uchQ8QOKmB

16U-17U: Alaya Grane, 2024, Warner Robins All Stars, Northside-Warner Robins High School
Known as a knock down shooter, Grane showed off an expanded offensive tool box and also took pride shutting down her defensive assignment. The shooting guard from Warner Robins created off the bounce, something we didn’t see a lot from her during the school ball season. That’s a welcomed sight to see the shooting specialist add another facet to her game.
16U-17U: Jalexicia Hargrove, 2022, Bostic Next Level, Hancock
There was no answer for Hargrove on the interior. She absolutely had her way each time out. The 6-foot post aggressively attacked from the block and crashed the boards hard every play. If there was any player that improved their stock from the event it was Hargrove. Don’t be surprised to see her name start to buzz in coaching circles.
‘22 Jalexicia Hargrove @JalexiciaH was a mismatch on the block all day. The Hancock rising senior displayed an array of moves with her back-to-basket and made a living on the offensive glass. @HoopSeenW #GACup ⛹🏾♀️

16U-17U: Jada Morgan, 2023, Macon Mystics, Jones County High School
The talented scoring guard rarely gets sped up and understands how to get buckets. Her game doesn’t necessarily jump out at you, but she consistently fills the stat sheet and this weekend was no different. Right now, she is relatively underrated statewide, but look for that narrative to change by the end of summer.
16U-17U: Jordyn Johnson, 2022, Warner Robins All Stars, Houston County High School
We’re sold more and more everytime we watch Johnson. She has transformed her body and game in complete 360 fashion over the past year. Now, she is more mobile and skilled and can take over a game in multiple ways. Johnson’s best attribute was her shooting stroke, but she impressed directing traffic and running the team as well.
16U-17U: TaNiya Pryor, 2022, Warner Robins All Stars, Central-Macon High School
There wasn’t a better two-way player over the weekend than Pryor. When it was winning time, she either hit a clutch shot or locked up defensively. She covers a lot of ground with her length and is slowly but surely becoming a defensive specialist.
