The MHS Invitational will be held this upcoming Saturday at Trinity High School. Top teams and prospects will be gracing the court and putting on a show.
Below are some 2024’s to be on the look for!
’24| 5’11 Guard | Barrington
Barrington’s backbone. Adler is the player that does everything you need her to do or everything that no one else wants to. She will switch through multiple positions on both sides of the ball, and be just as effective. Gwen is full of toughness and energy. She plays the seams and gets to the paint at a consistent rate.. and if it’s not a bucket it’s an assist. The versatility and strength are key to her on-ball defense, which causes issues for those she defends. Gwen plays her role to the T, and is the poster player for “We over Me”
’24| 5’8 Combo Guard | Butler College Prep
Deep bag with a high cup of confidence… Walton has it. A shifty guard that uses quick and tight handles to take her to her spots and from there she puts the ball in the bucket. Mindless from the 3, patient in the mid and creative and strong in the paint. Xamiya’s creativity allows her to score whenever and however and on whoever. Defensively, that same confidence and energy are applied to her stance and aggression towards who she’s guarding. The main force and building block for the future of Butler’s program.
’24| 6’1 Stretch Forward | Stevenson
Double digits in multiple categories on most if not all game nights. Emory has the athleticism and energy to be effective on both sides of the ball. Offensively, she gets the paint when and however she wants. Her running one-leg floater is usually her go-to and finds its way in the net every time. She’s a problem on the boards (both sides) and continues to give her team extra possessions. Defensively, her athleticism is a key to her success as well, she’s able to guard multiple positions and block shots at an alarming rate. The strength and motor behind Stevenson’s “Big 3”
’24| 6’2 Stretch Post | Barrington
A tough post player who plays the 4/5 position correctly. She is a dominant paint threat, and on both sides… she can physically take over a game. Her skillset stretches to the arc and that causes issues with matchups who may not be as mobile. She sets hard screens that create gaps and spaces for her to roll or for her guards and wings to score. Molly makes plays with and without the ball. On the defensive side, that same tough and strength are used. The potential is sky high for Barringtons big.
’24-Williams | 6’2 Stretch Forward | Kenwood
The do-it-all stretch has been key to Kenwoods success this season. She’s full of energy and that’s on both sides of the ball. When the possession is in Kenwoods favor, Ari’s offensive skill is very much noticed. She can slash to the rim, make plays from every angle, or knock down the mid if the shot presents itself. Williams plays to her strength within the system. Defense is a whole other story. She’s the security blanket of the squad. If it’s not blocked, it’s deflected or contested. Bullock-Willaims is Kenwood’s paint protector.
’24| 5’10 Forward | Trinity
A big body who uses her frame on every possession to get to her spots. Lauren works elbow to elbow to find an advantage … and when she does, it’s a bucket. Her length matched with her motor allows her to completely take over a game. On the offensive side of the ball, she can stretch the floor and also go to work in the paint. She uses her skill and length to find her way through traffic. Defensively, she plays with tons of effort to outwork her opponent and consistently grab boards. High IQ, and high ceiling. The center focus around Trinity’s program.
’24| 6’1 Forward | Fremd
A talented player who knows to get to her spot and secure it. Eshoo shows stability, consistency, and the athletic ability to be effective through every minute she spends on the court. Her footwork, strength, and ball handling gives her a straight advantage over most 3-5s that guard her. The sophomore is surrounded by nothing but the similar-sized talent on that deep Fremd squad, and with her high potential… she’ll be a name to remember.
’24| 5’8 Combo Guard | Sycamore
Carlsen is a two-guard that has the entire skillset to run the ship as well. She can put the ball in the basket from most spots on the court… especially from behind the arc. A deep ball threat whose IQ is on full display every minute she’s on the court. Solid with the ball, and accurate with her passes. When Lexi puts the ball on the floor, she’s looking to make plays from multiple angles and shows the efficiency and ball security to do so. A key piece in Sycamore’s outstanding lineup.
