After moving from the Las Vegas area last summer, Yazzy Sa’Dullah had little difficulty adjusting to the culture Burbank had to offer.
What she found very appealing was playing for the Burbank High girls’ basketball team. It didn’t take long for Sa’Dullah to make an impression after trying out for the team during the first week of school in August.
After meeting Burbank Coach Bruce Breeden, she made a favorable impression on the Bulldogs following the first practice session.
“We had a five-on-five session and you could see she was quite a player within about five minutes,” Breeden said. “I know she left an impression on the other coaches in the league, too.”
The rest of the Pacific League found out immediately about Sa’Dullah’s talent. She averaged 18.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 3.3 steals per contest en route to being named the league’s co-player of the year with Crescenta Valley’s Ella Stepanian, as voted on by the league’s eight coaches.
