Despite the recent announcements from the NCHSAA about the postponement of the championship games in North Carolina, one can’t look past the run Vance has made in the Women’s 4A Basketball Championships.
The Cougars sit with a 26-5 overall record and are still looking to face off against Southeast Raleigh in the championship game. Vance has used a balanced attack all year long, with six players averaging double-figures this season. However, the play of 2021 Amhyia Moreland and 2022 Trinity Moreland have helped lead the way.
Together, the sisters have played in all 31 games this year and have averaged nearly 22 points and 14 rebounds per game.
Both bring the ability to score and really attack the boards, consistently being a dominant force in the paint. They both spoke about what they like to bring to the floor with Phenom Hoops.
Amhyia: “I’m an all-around player. I can play inside or out. I run the floor really well and I play good defense, allowing me to guard multiple players on the floor.”
Trinity: “I find my game to be dominant in the paint. I make great post moves and drive. Most big’s can’t handle me down low. I can free myself up, I can move, I can get up and down the court, just as fast as a guard. I can dribble and move the ball well. What most people don’t know about me is that I can shoot from anywhere on the court.”
College programs are taking notice as well of the two sisters and their production on the floor. Amhyia currently holds an offer from Eastern Kentucky, while schools like Gardner-Webb, Morgan State, George Washington, Coastal Carolina, Winthrop, Campbell, Hampton, and Florida A&M have all expressed interest at some point. Some of those same schools are also looking into Trinity, who is only a sophomore right now.
Could the dynamic force of Amhyia and Trinity continue at the next level? Possibly. But they are looking to make their mark here in North Carolina at Vance first.
