Over the past week I have been able to see teams I have never watched in person and a couple that have had a wave of older players graduate and have others step forward. Here is a look at some who stood out.
, 5’11”, SF/PF, Inman, 2026 – Harris is essentially a point forward. She often ran the offense but played every other spot on that side of the ball. Defensively, she usually picked up an opposing big or played in the middle of zones. Harris has a athletic, slender build to go with length and really good hops. Frequently I saw her nearly an elbow above most everybody else going up for rebounds. Harris can put the ball in the hole off a spin move, off the catch and shoot, the post up, off a flash across the lane, and from beyond the arc with range. She was very effective off the bounce and in transition. Really liked how she anticipates a teammate’s shot and moves into rebounding position on a defender. Gets on the glass well and is as good at catching a offensive rebound in the air and scoring it before coming down.
, 5’11”, PF/SF, Hutchinson Trinity, 2025 – Galliher is a athletic, slender built player who gets on the glass well. She frequently out-jumped everyone to gather a board. A very good scorer around the basket Galliher showed good toughness as she was hit frequently hit while scoring or gathering rebounds. Galliher also showed good speed and quickness.
, 5’9″, PF, El Dorado, 2024 – It was easy to miss the little things Faudere did well. Just focusing on her I saw how well she moved into open spaces, used her length and anticipation ability to tip away entry passes, and score around the block with power moves. Fauderee used the glass well when finishing and was able to hit the three ball. I really liked her build as she has good strength with a solid foundation. She is a player who has to stay on the floor because of the many small things she contributes.
, 5’7″, CG, Kingman, 2023 – Munz showed the ability to catch and score on the run in transition. She also used a good head fake to get a couple steps within 10′ of the basket. In the half court she floated into open spaces well and showed good scoring ability. What I really enjoyed watching is how well she boxes out on both ends. Several times she took who she was boxing out away from rebounding opportunities.
, 5’10”, SF/PF, El Dorado, 2023 – Scholes is a long-limbed player who often found her way to the free throw line. She competed well on the glass with elevation and just seemed taller than listed. Scholes showed the ability to take the ball end-to-end but needs to do so with more control. I would like to see her sharpen and grow her block game to take advantage of her hops and athleticism.
