Check out my analysis on some under-the-radar 2024 prospects from around the state! These ladies are full of potential college coaches!
Kennedy Smith 2024 5’10 Dawson High School, TX (Houston Queens Elite 2024 Purple)
Kennedy is an aggressive player on both ends of the floor who really stood out due to her constant motor and willingness to fight on the interior. I loved watching her compete on the defensive end of the floor where her tenacity and motor really stood out. Her aggressiveness will bring her far in this game, based on how she competes and is unafraid of the competition standing in front of her. It did not matter if it was a skilled wing, or a forward she was up for the challenge on the defensive end. She moved her feet at a high level and worked hard on defending the rim and the interior of her team’s defense.
Mia Alarcon 2024 5’1 Morton Ranch High School, TX (Texas Cagers Select 2024)
Mia is an aggressive guard who specializes in her ability to defend on the ball and bump her opponents off their spots. She is great at getting underneath her opponent and moving with them through crossovers. She has a real knack of poking the ball free, she has active hands that came up with multiple steals during the first day of competition. She is great at turning defense into offense and using her end to end speed with the ball at beating the defense up the court to finish in the paint. I would like to see more consistency with her shot off the dribble, she displayed an ability to catch and shoot from the outside however so it should not be long before she becomes a complete two-three level scorer with her tenacity on both ends of the floor and how she reads the game.
Lyllian Walton Lyllian Walton 5'7" | SG Kinkaid | 2025 TX 2024 5’7 Kinkaid High School, TX (TNBA Houston 2024)
Lyllian is an aware point guard who sees the floor at an incredibly high level, and displayed some very impressive passes from all around the court to set up her teammates. She calmly made the right reads within the full court and the half court, I saw her slip a slick bounce pass through traffic on the fast break that hit her teammate right in stride. She has a great feel for the game and is calm with the ball in her hands. Within the half court, she made crisp passes that were in her teammates shooting pockets, allowing them to quickly get a shot up and punish the defense for relaxed coverage. I would like to see her become more aggressive in getting into the paint with a live dribble.
Cameron Belcher 2024 Windthorst High School, TX (West Texas Shockers 2024)
Cameron is a skilled slasher through her ability to create space with a live dribble and getting into the paint. She routinely got into the lane, and had a very affective dribble drive penetration during the entire tournament. Her ability to consistently get into the teeth of the defense created more space for her teammates on the perimeter. However her ability to defend on the ball is where she will continue to excel at a very high level. Her scrappiness and tenacity on this end of the floor was a real difference maker and she really left a mark on the defensive end of the court. I was very impressed with her ability to find shooters on the backside of the defense, or a slick dump off pass to her big man after drawing a second defender.
