The West Texas Canes 2030 are still undefeated. This group is unmatched and are skilled young players. They went untouched and beat teams by more than 10+ every time. Who can hang with this team? The Canes are fast, physical, aggressive, play full court defense, and can score. Their guards can get to the basket and shoot from outside, they are just a tough group to handle. Aubree Minor has good athleticism and can score, Makayla Jefferson was knocking them down back to back from outside, Adelina Kennard was another tough point guard. This team is very competitive at the guard position, they still have a few more that weren't mentioned, just know this team is looking for the smoke and they will give it to you if you want it.
