Freedom's Emery commits to Tulane

Freedom forward Taylor Emery, one of Tampa Bay's most prolific scorers the past two seasons, announced on Twitter her intentions to play basketball at Tulane.

Emery made an official visit to Tulane the weekend of June 23 and orally committed Sunday. She chose the Green Wave over Mississippi, Georgia Tech and Seton Hall.

Emery, a 5-foot-10 slasher who also likes to stay busy defensively and has worked diligently on developing her outside shot, averaged 25.9 points a game last season to lead Hillsborough County, including a 41-point effort against Tampa Bay Tech.

Going into her fourth season as a starter, the incoming senior has a career average of 21.2 points a game, and is likely to join the exclusive 2,000-point club this season.

Northeast: Guard Lisa Waithe has committed to NAIA program William Penn University in Oskaloosa, Iowa. Waithe played in all 31 games as a senior for the Vikings and averaged 3.9 points per game. She was a Tampa Bay Times all-county honorable mention selection and also played in the Pinellas vs. Hillsborough senior all-star game.

Seminole: Catcher Doug Borgh has committed to play at Hillsborough Community College. Borgh hit .224 as a senior with 17 RBIs, but he was best defensively. He threw out 94 percent of potential base stealers and was named the PCAC north's first-team catcher.
