The first weekend in August has become known as the last official weekend of girls basketball in the DMV. With the Rites of Passage event cancelled this year, the USE Basketball Family Reunion took center stage. The main event of the day was the High School Showdown which featured Team 2022 vs. Team 2021. Team 2021 took a big loss to Team 2020 so they came in with some extra motivation this time around and handled their younger opponents, 78-70.

Taylor returned to this year's Family Reunion looking like a different player. I was impressed with last year's version, but the new and improved model was spectacular. After a successful season playing with Boo Williams on the Nike EYBL Circuit, Taylor is a much more confident player with more weapons in her bag. Her handle is much improved and she showed the ability to get to the rim and finish. More impressive was her shooting from the perimeter. She knocked down several threes and looked real confident launching from healthy distances.
