Pervis Ellison becomes head coach...Aja to follow him to Jersey? ...Silver Stars Vs. Dream Final Score: Jia Perkins, Becky Hammon Lead San Antonio To Come From Behind Win Over Atlanta - SB Nation Atlanta


-Dream drop another at home

-Pervis takes head coach job...Aja to follow?

Angel not looking too happy
here. Who can blame her? The
Dream are pretty bad so far this
It's getting to the point where it's getting painful to write about this 2011 version of the Atlanta Dream. They found a different way to lose one yesterday...we'll let someone else tell you about it this morning. Up by seven late and lose by six.. 92-86. Click the link below...

Silver Stars Vs. Dream Final Score: Jia Perkins, Becky Hammon Lead San Antonio To Come From Behind Win Over Atlanta - SB Nation Atlanta

Gotta win the home games and Angel needs some help. She had 19 in the loss but the Dream gave up 32 to rookie Danielle Adams.


Pervis was a steady NBA player and UofL Cardinal
Former UofL men's basketball great has accepted the head coaching job at Life Center Academy High School in Burlington County, NJ. It is considered one of the nation's top boys basketball programs. Ellison had 10 years in the NBA and extensive work as an AAU coach...including working with several Life Center players who have gone on to play for major D1 schools.

WE wonder how the move is going to affect another budding Ellison, though...his daughter Aja. Considered one of the top 100 in the class of 2014, the University of Louisville has already offered the 6'2" center a scholarship. She played her freshman season at Shipley High School in suburban Philadelphia, PA.

Will it mean the end of the tutelage from her high school and AAU coach Sean Costello?

Ellison (center) could be a
game changer by her
senior year.
"Her progress from last summer has been amazing." Costello recently commented on the speedy and powerful Ellison, who averaged 13.7 points and 10.1 rebounds as a freshman.

"My father says I should be more dominating with my height and my speed." Ellison related recently.

One would think there's plenty of time for that...given that she has three more years of high school ahead of her. It's rare to see a freshman with skills this good and they haven't gone unnoticed by others either. Stanford, Tennessee and Connecticut are all showing interest in Aja also.

Ellison is considered one of the best post players in the area and if she goes to play for Life Center, will it mean she'll get the chance to matchup against 6'11" amazon Bubbles Anderson of Rutgers Prep? (If she goes at word yet on where Aja will attend as a sophomore.)
