Prep Girls Hoops Missouri takes a look at the top Class of 2025 standouts from this weekend’s Blue Fish Shootout, which was held at Rolla High School.
(Owensville): The 5’6″ 2025 guard scored a game-high 22 points in Dutchgirls victory over Mexico. She was very difficult to guard because of her quickness and ability to attack off the dribble and score in transition. To compliment her ability to penetrate, she was also knocking down shots from distance as she hit four 3-pointers.
(Rolla): The 5’6″ combo guard scored a game-high 22 points in the Bulldogs victory over Macks Creek. A transfer from Newburg, she fit in well with her new teammates at both ends of the court. She’s quick and she is a bucket from all three levels. She was also excellent on defense on the full court press with her speed and ball hawking ability. She read the passing lanes well to get a number of deflections and steals.
(Union): A 5’9″ 2025 wing player who impacts the game at both ends of the court with her athleticism and high motor. She plays on the top of the full court press and she was disruptive in getting deflections and steals. She is very good when she’s slashing to the basket and she also hit the Corner 3-pointer.
(Macks Creek): A 5’9″ forward who was a tough matchup problem with her physical strength and offensive skill set. She was very effective in the paint with her good footwork and nice touch around the basket. She can also turn the corner off the dribble and get downhill and score through contact. She was also hitting the elbow jumper off the catch.
Ava Sykes (Union): The 5’7″guard was the Wildcats shooting star in their victory over West Plains on Saturday. She was on fire from 3-point range as she made seven triples. Her teammates did a good job of getting her the ball when she had the hot hand. She is also quick and she played under control. Despite her great shooting performance, everything was within the offense as she didn’t look to force anything.
(Mexico): A 5’10” 2025 wing player who has good versatility and athleticism. She was one of the more impressive passers that I watched during the event. She used her height well to see over the defense and she was putting passes right on the money to cutting teammates. Many of them were over the top, which led to easy layups. She is also a skilled ball handler who made some nice runners in the lane.
(Tipton): The 5’6″ returning All-State guard scored 13 points in the Lady Cardinals victory over Macks Creek. She was very impressive at distributing the basketball as she found open teammates from any spot on the court. She was also feeding the ball into the low post well, which is kind of a lost art. When she needed to score, she could get in the lane to flip up the runner or knock down the 3-pointer.
Ashlyn Marshall (Capital City): A 5’11” small forward had a impressive performance against Osage as she utilized her athleticism and mobility very well. She was working the baseline very effectively to get buckets and she was running the court in transition. She is also getting her share of rebounds as she used her quick bounce to snare offensive boards.
(Union): A 5’10” forward who is very solid inside with her ability to score and rebound. She is strong enough to hold her position against taller players. She also stepped out and hit a 3-pointer in the corner in the victory over West Plains.
Camille Cranshaw (Pembroke Hill): A 6’0″ forward who has good length and mobility. She has the ability to score inside with her left hand. She is also a very effective rebounder who was getting out of her area to grab boards.
