Not able to make the event in person, no problem. I was able to tune into the Georgia Top 250 Expo virtually, even though travel kept me from making it in person. There were a few players that jumped off the live feed that I will be making a trip to see this high school season. There’s still a high value in seeing players live and for that reason, I’ll be putting some miles on the road this year to check out these ladies up close.
Here are 7 players that caught my eye during the Georgia Top 250 Expo.
No matter how you’re watching a game a 6’0 wing is going to stand out. She did a little of everything. Enthusiastic defender, a capable scorer who recognizes her advantages in different matchups, and has a good feel for spacing on the perimeter.
This was my second viewing of Danielle and she’s stayed consistent. Long forward with perimeter potential. A possible double-double season average this year is on her horizon. Having only seen her in showcase events, I am eager to see how much she contributes in a more controlled setting.
Jones was one of the better playmakers at the expo. Looked to be a step and thought ahead of everyone in the game I watched. Seemed to find chemistry with her teammates very quickly which not only helped her but also made players around her look good.
A lot of size on the Team Tre roster. Kayla is a forward that shows some perimeter shooting. Handle it well for her size and rebounded well.
Really like whatwas able to do in game one. Fundamentally sound on defense, a smart passer in transition, and made several strong drives after great fundamental dribble moves. Accelerates through the rim.
Madison is a tough basketball player. She’s physical and had a sense of pride on defense. Hustle for loose balls showing she values possessions even in showcases. Muscled her way into the lane for scoring opportunities.
Bennett has a “feel” on the court. She made defenders look silly more there once with the way she was able to weave through traffic ending oftentimes with passes to wide-open teammates. A lot of agility and a sticky handle. The ball just never got away from her.
