Girls’ basketball notebook: Jakia Brown-Turner and Bishop McNamara are off to a hot start

Bishop McNamara is young, talented and undefeated: Last season, Bishop McNamaraforward Jakia Brown-Turner averaged 16.7 points as a sophomore. That's a number that can draw attention, even in a conference as talented as the WCAC. Heading into this season, McNamara Coach Frank Oliver knew that opponents would hone in on her.
