There were several players at the Madison Plains Preview last weekend that deserve some attention from not only the media, but fans as we head into the new season. Here are a few who should make an impact and if you don’t know them, you need to see them!
The reigning Player of the Year in the Metro Buckeye Conference as a sophomore is back and she brought her game! Alli is a good heads up defender and moves her feet well on the defensive end. Heady kid with a good basketball IQ, she anticipates well with good hands. Has a good step to the rim and finishes strong. Love her motor!
Elodie moves well in the paint and gets into position to get the ball ro the rim. She has a good running floater with good footwork. Like her length which allows her to defend well in the passing lanes. Skilled and continuing to work on her game with two years of high school ball left.
Only a sophomore, she is able to create a shot with good movement without the ball in her hands. Puts herself into postion to make things happen. She has good range and can knock down the three. Also can challenge at the rim as a solid rebounder and can protect the rim on defense.
She has a good stop and go hesitation move which allows her to finish at the rim against her defender, Adrionna has good hands on the defensive end and is able to pressure the ball. Finishes well at the rim with either hand. Good posie and a steady demeanor to deal with pressure and move the game in transition.
Hayle is one of the main pieces that makes Indian Lake go. She is a fiery guard with an intense motor, makes things happen with her energy. Good handles and one thing she does is anticipates the game well on defense. Very athletic and shows good leadership. Able to create moves in the paint.
She is back for her senior year, and she has been impressive since I first saw her a couple of years ago She will be the main go-to player for the Warriors and one of the top players in the CBC. Able to play multiple positions with good hands and can push north-south in transition. Does a good job running the floor in the uptempo style.
Her game has improved as the main post player for the Wildcats. Her inside game has improved as she plays poised and is able to finish down low through contact in a physical style. Nice soft touch and a good catch-and-shoot player in the paint. I expect her game to continue to improve. Good length and a wingspan that helps protect the rim.
This young lady was one of the top pure posts I saw on the day. She doea a good job playing physical who can handle the paint and once she establishes position at the rim, she is difficult to defend. She also has the mindset to let it fly from the perimeter and has no fear of shooting behind the arc. Long arms and a good wingspan, can catch and score.
Laney is the main offensive threat coming back to a Tipp team who lost the majority of the offense to graduation. I like her leaderhip as she knows it is her time to take the reigns. Has developed that mentality and is able to score from the perimeter. Solid defender and can play physical which she gets from her time in soccer.
Allie plays off the ball and can shoot from anywhere on the court. She has expanded her game lately with more penetration to the rim and has taken into more of a senior leadership role this season. She plays hard nosed defense and has a high basketball IQ for the game.
Physical player who does a great job both in the paint, and can step out and defend the wing. Able to shoot the three with a good touch, or she can get to the rim and play through contact. With her strength it is difficult to push her around and she can defend and protect the rim. Good compliment to their strong backcourt. One of the states top track standouts.
She is a player who could really develop into a bigtime threat with the right skill development, and her high school coach is known to do that. I like her strong frame that allows her to battle through contact. She can run the floor well and hits the boards hard. Can protect the ball and the rim.
