Over 100 players from the fifth through twelfth grades showed up at the St. James in Springfield, Viriginia for the annual She Got Game Labor Day Combine. The participants were in the gym from 8am to 1pm and received the full combine experience. DMV coaches Tamika Dudley, Dominique Johnson, Michelle Watts and Yawni Kizer and former Penn State/Arizona baller Amari Carter ran the drill stations and provided instruction and motivation throughout the event. Here are some of the standout players from the high school division.
Cai really stood in this event. She has great length and plays with a lot of confidence. Her skill set impressive as she can handle the ball, create space and make shots from all over the court. She will be an immediate contributor at Georgetown Day School where she is a freshman this season.
Arguably the best shooter at the event. When she gets her feet set her shot from beyond the arc is on point. She moves well without the ball and showed the ability to finish in the paint as well.
One of my favorite players to watch in the area. She was at her best in this event, doing a little bit of everything as usual. She plays bigger than her size and crashes the boards really hard. She is an excellent defender and can score in a variety of ways. Brings intensity and hustle on every possession. She has moved to a new situation with Elizabeth Seton, but will contribute right away.
Quick and shifty guard that consistently got past defenders in the drills and in the scrimmages. She finished inside against bigger players and made some nice passes.
Mara’s length really stood out. She might be taller than her listed height. She made her presence felt on the boards and in the paint, where she contested shots all day. I’m looking forward to seeing her at an open gym or practice so I can get a better look.
I was pleasantly surprised to see Mekhia at the combine. She pretty much had her way with every defender that she encountered and caught a few bodies. Her quickness, range and upper body strength make a real tough cover for most guards in the area. I can’t wait to see her college commitment.
