Bryce Dowell is a 5’7 Senior guard from Belleville East. During the spring and summer Bryce played with the Evolution Elite. Bryce is a hidden gem that should be getting attention from smaller schools that are looking for a scorer. She can score in bunches. Bryce is currently averaging 19.3 points per game. Her shooting is off the charts. Bryce is currently shooting 45/50/91% for the season.
During the summer Bryce worked with her school team and also the Evolution Elite. The school team went undefeated in the SWIC league. In addition they really enjoyed a trip to the Notre Dame team camp. Bryce said the feeling on staying on campus and being a part of an event at such a large school was memorable for her. The Evolution Elite team did not have as much success in regards to wins. Bryce did feel that the competition they faced allowed her an opportunity to get better.
During the off season Bryce worked on her defense and improving her shot. She also mentioned she worked on her speed with her uncle, who she mentioned is a track coach. For those of you familiar with the track and field scene, her saying her uncle is a track coach is about like saying Nick Saban is a college football coach. Her uncle certainly has the credentials to teach her about speed!
As the Lady Lancers approach this season they have high expectations. Bryce simply stated they want to finish some unfinished business. This would certainly include making a run at a SWC title. In addition they certainly have to feel they want to win a Regional championship and keep moving on from there. The team has faced a tough early season schedule. This would seem to fall in line with the goal of getting better every game. Wins will come but the tough competition allows them to really see where they stand early in the season. If they can keep improving each game they will be there in the end.
While she has not had any offers yet, Bryce has been getting contacted by local smaller schools. She would very much like to continue her basketball career in college and study nursing. A school that has a strong nursing program is extremely important to Bryce. She has a great head on her shoulders. She wants to use her basketball ability to her help get a free education.
As many fans know, the Lady Lancers have lost star point guard Kaylah Rainey. She will most likely miss the whole season. This has put Bryce in a situation where she needed to step up her game. She has done that and more. As you can tell by her numbers, Bryce is off to a great start. She is certainly proving that she can play and score at the next level.
