Whew, this one was tough! Had to drop in some honorable mentions because of it… tap in to my Preseason All-D2 First Team!
Macie Stagner, 5’8 G – Springfield H.S. Class of 2025
With Macie, opponents have a whole lot to handle. Stagner is a highly competent initiator of the offense, orchestrating and creating so much of Springfield’s scoring. She’s an utter playmaker with her 3-level scoring and sly distribution, finding teammates well when opponents send multiple defenders. Moreover, Stagner’s coverage of ballhandlers and defensive disruption at large forces opponents into difficult positions, and she can quickly turn that defense to offense. Macie’s as solid as they come.
Sabine Brueck, 5’8 G – North Country Union H.S. Class of 2025
Last year’s GPOY, Sabine has only gotten better. Brueck’s formidable two-way game is founded on hardnosed defense, supreme speed, and a winning mentality. She locks up the best perimeter players with her length and athleticism, rebounds well for a guard, and will completely bust out of the pack in transition. Offensively, she needs little time on the ball. She’s a fantastic slasher and finisher, a good shooter off the catch, and a pest to chase after with all her cutting and relocating. Sabine just plays the right way.
Brooke’lyn Robinson, 5’8 G – Lyndon Institute Class of 2024
Hyper-efficient, Brooke’lyn is that offensive connector that each team needs. Super gluey with a nice shooting touch, Robinson is effective with limited time on the rock. She cuts intuitively, moves wisely into defensive gaps, and finishes her looks at a high clip. And when she’s on the ball, it’s a quick decision. It’s a shot when she’s open, a slash when she sees a gap, or a pass to keep the rock moving. No stagnation. Defensively, Brooke’lyn brings that smart approach with her measured pressure and tight rotations. Connective and so impactful.
Charlotte Jasmin, 5’9 G/W – Hartford H.S. Class of 2026
Jasmin is somebody who’s going to provide a wide array of services. Charlotte is a multi-level scorer who’ll create offense off the bounce, the catch, in transition, or off second chance points with her rebounding. Moreover, she sees the floor well and can hit teammates with heady passes from all over the floor. Defensively, Charlotte guards essentially 2-4, can switch anytime, and will haul in a mass amount of boards. Then it’s transition where she can flourish as a distributor or finisher. Jasmin is someone who plays big, point-forward, and playmaker interchangeably.
Marlie Bushey, 5’10 G/W – Milton Union H.S. Class of 2026
Smooth and skilled, Marlie is the modern positionless prototype. Bushey has the length and athleticism to cover all positions, and does so well in fullcourt pressure, yet her sweet spot is 2s and 3s. She’s able to contain perimeter players, protect the rim, and rebound the rock to spark the break. Marlie has guard skills with her handle, passing and multi-level shooting, along with the size and feel to add a post presence and a few second chance points. A smooth operator with intuitive decision making, Marlie plays a winning brand of basketball.
Quinn Nelson, 5’11 F – Harwood Union H.S. Class of 2024
Maya Auger, 5’8 G – North Country Union H.S. Class of 2024
