KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - So you want to be a future Lady Vol or even colleague or WNBA champion? Well sure, no problem, but you’ve got to put in the time and work says someone who knows a thing or two about that, Lady Vol great, Alexis Hornbuckle, ”I actually find it harder to find those players who have natural grit. and that desire to get on the floor, get those lose balls can be coached hard, already kind of self disciplined when it comes to working hard.”

Hornbuckle is back in Big Orange Country teaming up with fellow VFL Bobby Maze at his Elite training facility and says, ”It’s really cool, obviously we’re good friends and went to Tennessee at the same time. I appreciate the opportunity he’s given me to train his girls especially on the Under Armour circuit, it’s just a privilege and a pleasure.”

Next level training, which Alexis learned from the legend Pat Summitt, is instruction she absolutely enjoys passing on to the next generation of female basketball stars, ”It’s not as cut and dry ans people think, it takes a lot of patience but it takes a lot of love and passion. So people will say practice makes perfect Pat says no way, prefect practice makes perfect so that’s what I’m here to do.”

A two time NCAA and WNBA Champion , Alexis Hornbuckle, making a difference one dribble at a time!

Alexis and the other coaches are hosting a tournament at the B.Maze facility in West Knoxville on May 21st thru the 23rd. It’ll feature middle and high school basketball and is a great way to showcase girls basketball here in East Tennessee.
