Video: Nine-year-old girl is averaging 15 points per game with varsity team
Last year, the nation was introduced to a fifth-grader by the name of Julian Newman, who awed people with his ability to play varsity basketball as a fifth grader at Downey Christian in Orlanda, Fla.
Now, there is a new youngster stealing the spotlight, and that player is none other than Julian's sister, Jaden Newman, who can be seen in the video above tearing it up on the varsity level as a mere fourth-grader!
At the ripe age of nine, Jaden is averaging 14.8 points and 7.5 assists per game this season for the girl's varsity squad. She is coached by the same person who also coaches her brother: their father.
It goes without saying, but these two may represent the most prolific brother-sister tandem basketball has ever seen one day.
