Life Center Academy in Burlington, NJ has a new girls' basketball coach Hilton Clarke, Clarke is taking over the job left from Ron Kessler who resigned right before school had started. Hilton was a assistant last year for the team, he said that he would be running the same type of offense for his program that Kessler ran, but this year he said that they would be playing a lot of man to man on defense and that they would be pressing and trapping teams on the defensive side of the ball. Hilton said that he needs his senior Aaliyah Junne
 to be the leader that he knows she could be, he go's on to say that he knows that she can score 30 points a game but he would rather have her average about 15 10 and 10 in a game because that would make her a overall better player. Also back from injury is senior center Theresa

Ekhelar who he says needs to stay healthy enough to play a full season, the Ohio St. commitment  was injured all of last year and now she one of the lone seniors and post player that they have. Ekhelar said that boys head basketball coach and former LA Laker in Louisville super star Pervis Ellisons has been helping her with her post moves that she really needs to work on for the next level. Theresa said that if all go's well this year at the Life Center she should be able to get some minutes for the Buckeyes. The Life
Center also brought in two new recruits from New Zealand 6'1 Sophomore Tera Reed who is a wing player who is very athletic she has very long arms an can run the floor exceptionally well, well enough to play the 1 Thur 4 spots. Tera is thin but with her athleticism she should be able to help Junne and Ekhelar out around the perimeter.

Michelle Perentini who too  is from New, Zealand is a 5'10  Junior guard who is very strong, watching her during practices she should bring a mean streak to the Life Center Girls basketball team, she's very aggressive on offense in on defense, Perentini is going to be a nightmare match up at the guard position since she is so strong getting rebounds and alot of put backs around the glass.
