Watch a 9-Year-Old Girl Break High School Varsity Basketball Players' Ankles

Friday January 10th, 2014

This is Jaden Newman. She's a nine-year-old 4th grader, and she's dominating a high school varsity basketball team made up of, presumably, 17 and 18 year olds. She's currently averaging nearly 15 points and 8 assists per game for Downey Christian high school in Florida.

It’s not just that she’s scoring 15 a game on kids nearly twice her age (and size). What’s jaw dropping is how she’s doing it. Check the crossovers, the stutter steps, the legit three point range. She's making people fall (check the 0:50 second mark)! This girl is legit.

The craziest part? You might have heard of her brother Julian, who’s 11, and is also dominating kids much older.

What does this family feed their kids?
