South Broward alum Tamara James returns for alumni game

No matter where in the world Tamara James is playing basketball, the South Broward High grad always checks in with co-head coaches Richard Walker and Sharlene Ferguson to see how her beloved Bulldogs are faring.

At 4 p.m. Saturday, James -- the No. 8 overall pick by the Washington Mystics in the 2006 WNBA Draft -- will see first-hand how this year's team stacks up when she leads a star-studded roster of former Bulldogs standouts in an alumni game at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center gym in Hollywood.

Admission is free.

James, the first Broward girls' player to win three consecutive FHSAA state championships when she led the Bulldogs to titles from 2000-2002, will be joined by, among others: Krystal Saunders, Alicia Harvin, Porsha Holmes, Laquetta Ferguson, Tocarra Williams, Julia Noga, Lashonda Slade, Tynesha Gregory, Telisha Warner, Charlene Wilson, Tonya Holmes, NaTavia Osgood, Tedra Burrows and Shameaka McSwain.

Saunders, the 2010 Florida Dairy Farmers Miss Basketball after leading last year's team to the Class 6A state semifinal, will play for the University of Miami and try to duplicate James' All-American Hurricanes career.

The young guns are led by Danielle Robinson, an All-Broward second-team selection last season, sharp-shooting Kiara Shoats, Elisha Neely, Christelle Willis and Jasmine Walker.
