With the season being pushed back 6 weeks, we have more time to preview the 2021 season. Here’s a look at some players who have to replace the 2020 Miss Basketball nominees.

Fifth Region: Whitney HayWhitneyHay6'0" | PFElizabethtown | 2020StateKY, Elizabethtown - 

The most likely replacement for Hay’s production is going to be Kayra FreemanKayraFreeman5'5" | PGElizabethtown | 2021StateKY. Had she not transferred to Bethlehem, Xaviara SmalleyXaviaraSmalley6'2" | CBethlehem | 2023StateKY would have been a no brainer but for Elizabethtown to avoid the dreaded "rebuild" label, Freeman is going to have to show she’s the player she showed potential of being as a freshman at John Hardin. E-Town is going to be very young but Freeman has a chance to keep them in the thick of the 5th region race.

Sixth Region: Ta’Ziah JenksTa’ZiahJenks6'1" | PFMercy | 2020StateKY, Mercy - 

Mercy has to replace 2 of the better players in recent school history but they are loaded in the 2023 and 2024 classes. Look for Sophomore Amy ThompsonAmyThompson6'1" | CMercy | 2023StateKY to get first crack at being the go to scorer for the Lady Jags and formerly supporting players like Emma BarnettEmmaBarnett6'2" | CMercy | 2023StateKY, Lexi CashLexiCash5'7" | CGMercy | 2023StateKY, Mariah Knight and Ramiya WhiteRamiyaWhite6'4" | CMercy | 2024KY to form one of the best young cores
