Nelson has showed value controlling the flow, setting up offense and putting her teammates in advantageous situations. The guard does an excellent job of surveying the floor for optimal passes, utilizing the incredibly deep offensive options at Air Academy’s disposal. Running it back with a similar group, Nelson will have yet another opportunity to help this group reach the state finals.
Dumas is an elite point of attack defender, very quick to wall off the lane from opposing drivers. They do an excellent job of getting into a low stance with wide arms, prepared to get a hand on the ball if necessary. Her role as a facilitator cannot be overlooked, bringing notable value as a downhill scorer due to her immediate first step and twitchy handle.
Ward does an excellent job controlling the pace, utilizing her ambidextrous handle to gain position in the paint. There are few guards who bring her mix of elite handle and consistency facilitating for teammates. No doubt the guard is among the most dynamic playmakers in the class, possessing supreme IQ while playing up against older opponents.
Relford is especially active reading the floor on either end, although she is always ready to create a steal with Overland. Comfortable making decisions in transition and along the defensive perimeter, the guard will certainly be an impactful lead guard this season.
Providing immense value handling the ball in traffic, Booker will make the transition period for George Washington much easier. Proactive pushing the pace while keeping her eyes up for the next opportunity, the guard is comfortable under chaotic circumstances. Plenty of opportunity ahead for Booker with Goerge Washington, stepping into a much larger opportunity than previous seasons.
A pass first guard, Honeycutt is constantly surveying the floor for the best possible shot attempt. Regardless of an opportunity for herself or a teammate, the guard is truly selfless, primed for a large opportunity this season. Following the departure of multiple key contributors, Honeycutt’s high IQ and willingness to play fast will be on full display with George Washington.
Vigil is a gritty defender who stays proactive at the point of attack, taking away space early on to deter opposing ball handlers. The guard will surely add value on both ends, showing no fear against the best opposing lead guards. Offensively, Vigil does an excellent job spacing the floor when provided a spot-up opportunity. Additionally, the guard is active attacking the paint following a closeout, providing plenty of variety with her offensive options. Either stepping into the pull-up or a floater, the guard is always a scoring threat. Her quick handle will allow the guard to remain dependable under pressure, certainly playing a valuable role in a exciting backcourt focused Westminster program.
An especially consistent perimeter shooter, Washington brings plenty of value along the perimeter. Already an efficient floor spacer on spot-up attempts, the guard has proven especially efficient spacing the floor throughout previous showcase events. Their ability to handle pressure in the halfcourt will be intriguing, boasting a dependable perimeter skillset.
