Albertville senior post player Makayla Phillips was a force to be reckoned with during the 2018-19 basketball season.

“When I was talking to coaches that we played against this season, when we talked about Makayla, they didn’t have anybody that could really guard her,” Albertville head coach Matt Nelson said.

“She can play inside, she can play outside and she can handle the basketball. Her shot got a lot better. She shot it real well.”

Voted the defensive player of the year on the 2019 All-Marshall County team, Phillips averaged 13.8 points and 6.4 rebounds per game while collecting 69 steals and 17 blocked shots.

Phillips’ performance attracted the attention of Oakwood University head coach Robert Harris, who saw her as a great fit for his program. (Read More)
