These players were not on the radar last year, but in the last year we have seen them during AAU play, summer league play, Showcase tournaments, etc. In this article we look at some of the 2024 players who enter the PGH rankings for the very first time. This time next year, take a look at the rankings. These guards on the newcomer’s list are some very good prospects.
/ 5’4 PG / Ribault / PGH #250
Massey (cover photo) was the starting point guard for Ribault high school last year and will handle the point guard duties again this season. Massey is a down hill and agressive attacker of the basket. She forces the defense to commit and then she attacks the rim or passes to an open teammate. She is good at defeating a man to man defense and can finish with a high degree of difficulty. She also goes to the freethrow line a lot with her style of play. Massey can also score in the mid range area and behind the arc, though she is at her best when on the move. Defensively, she is in your face and forces turnovers to set the Ribault fast break in motion. That will be a deadly combination this upcoming season.
/ 5’6 PG / St Joseph Country Day / PGH #68
Cramer makes a grand debut at 68 and deservedly so. She is a baller and that’s from the tip off until the clock says zero. She is a player who thrives in the transition game and will finish a game with multiple layups and freethrows from attacking the rim so much. Cramer can shoot it and score from all over the court. She was a standout during the college live period, and she was a prolific scorer last basketball season, averaging 19.2 points per contest and 7.3 rebounds from the guard position. Look for an encore performance this 2022 – 2023 season.
/ 5’10 CG / Oakleaf / PGH #125
Bender is a player to look out for this basketball season. She was a contributor last year and had some bright moments, including a good performance in the District Finals. She doesn’t look like the same player now. After the summer league and summer workouts, Bender looks like a completely different player from a confidence and athletic standpoint. She is poised to have a great 2022 – 2023 campaign.
/ 5’6 PG / Bishop Snyder / PGH #231
Jones scored close to 300 points as a Sophomore and led her team in multiple categories, including scoring. She is very crafty and knows how to get open for the easy basket, whether in transition or in an offensive set. At PGH 250 Jones was a standout who scored early and often. She played very good defense, and rebounded well from the guard position. As a Sophomore, Jones averaged 9.3 points per game, 3.2 steals and 4.2 rebounds.
/ 5′ 5 CG / St Cloud / PGH #268
Rivera has one of the sweetest shots around and she can shoot it as good as anyone in the class of 2024. Her shot is just that good. She turned heads at the Southeast Showcase and at the Select 50. At the Southeast Showcase she was shooting it from all over the court and she had some nice shots at the Select 50. Rivera can also take it to the goal as well. She communicates well on the court and is a selfless player. Last season, Rivera averaged 20 points per game and knocked down an incredible 84 threes.
/ 5’2 PG / Bolles / PGH #203
First Name is Gia and last name is Dodaro. She has heart and determination. They are two of her attributes. On the court she is very difficult to press. As a lefty, she is good at going against the flow of the press. She also has a good jump shot that she can make on a consistent basis. At 5’2, Dodaro can get in the paint and shoot her patented floater. Defensively, she has a lot of grit and does a good job on the ball. She is a true competitor and will definitely be an impact for the Bolles Bulldogs this year.
/ 5’2 CG / Windemere / PGH #282
Got a chance to see Sedo at the PGH 250 event where she really played well. Sedo is a smart player with a high basketball IQ and can really shoot the ball. She makes very good decisions on the court. Last year as a Sophomore, Sedo averaged 10.3 points per game and connected own a respectable 37 threes.
