RISE UP PAN-O-RAMA PREVIEW: MERCER COUNTY
- Mascot: Titans
- Region: 12th
- District: 46th
Timberlynn Yeast | Senior | Forward/Guard
Timberlynn Yeast is one of the top 2023 prospects in the state. She has been making stuff happen for the Titans since she was a 7th grader. Last season, she was the 14th leading scorer in Kentucky after averaging 20.9 ppg. She was also Mercer County’s leading rebounder at 8.4 rpg. Yeast’s FG percentage was really impressive last season as she knocked down 232 shots out of 446 attempts (52%). Yeast has committed to the University of Buffalo.
Teigh Yeast | Freshman | Point Guard/Guard
Timberlynn’s younger sister, Teigh, has the potential to be even better than her talented older sister, but she is already one of the top 2026 players in the state. As an 8th grader, Teigh was the Titans 2nd leading scorer after putting up 9.3 ppg. She averaged 2.6 rpg as well.
Lindsay Jessie | Senior | Center/Forward
Jessie also averaged 9.3 ppg last season, along with 5.4 rpg. She shot a team-best 52.3% overall, as well as a team-best 42.9% from 3. She is very effective around the basket, but she can stretch the defense with her perimeter skills.
Anna Drakeford | Junior | Point Guard/Guard
Drakeford averaged 7.4 ppg and 3.4 rpg as a sophomore. After a big summer with her AAU squad, you can expect her to impact the game greatly on both sides of the ball throughout her junior season.
Sara Dunn | Junior | Forward/Guard
Dunn averaged 6.8 ppg and 5.3 rpg last season.
Hope Lanham | Senior | Guard
Lanham averaged 6.7 ppg and 1.3 rpg.
Mercer County only graduated 1 player from last season and that player saw limited action in 17 games.
