Jada Wynn, an incoming King’s High School freshman, posted team highs of 16 points and nine rebounds for her Tree of Hope Pacific AAU girls basketball team in a Jr. NBA World Championship game Friday that was nationally televised on Fox Sports 1.
Wynn had a highlight-reel play in the closing seconds of the third quarter, beating the buzzer with a contested, high-arching lay-in off the glass.

Despite Wynn’s performance, Tree of Hope Pacific fell 66-56 to the top-seeded South Carolina 76ers in the U.S. quarterfinal contest and was eliminated from the tournament. The inaugural 16-team event features top 14-and-under teams from around the world and is held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Florida.
Wynn averaged a team-high 13.5 points and 4.5 rebounds over four Jr. NBA World Championship games this week for Tree of Hope Pacific, which qualified for the tournament as the Northwest regional champions.
Wynn is the daughter of Jody Wynn, the University of Washington women’s basketball head coach.
