Kenzie is a talented point guard from West Fargo Sheyenne, ND. She made the all handles team and was one of the most impressive 1 guards at the event. Off the drive she is an excellent decision maker and reads gaps well in order to attack the rim. This innate ability to drive and make decisions allows her to score as well as set up her teammates for open looks, giving her the traits of a true point guard. On defense she plays with tenacity and was one of the best on-ball defenders at the combine. She picked her girl up at half-court all day long and made opposing offenses have a really difficult time getting into any sort of rhythm.
Amity is a talented guard from St. Thomas More high school in Rapid City, SD. What stood out overall for me for this young lady was her impressive handles and ability to orchestrate the offense. She showed off a diverse array of dribbling moves and had no problem keeping her defender off balance. Great precision in her passing and strong decision-making skills kept her team moving the ball well and in excellent spacing on offense. She can drive and dish making her a dual threat point guard who canget her own as well as create for others. On defense she gets after opposing guards and does a really nice job defending on the perimeter.
Myah is an impressive prospect from South Prairie, ND. This young lady demonstrated what it looks and sounds like to be a great teammate. She was one of the most vocal prospects at the event and competes with an intense motor. She showed off her ability to attack the basket, knock down the jump shot, and consistently made positive plays on the offensive end. Her IQ and work ethic were shown on the defensive end as well in her ability to defend the ball, get in position on the help side, and box out and grab boards when a shot goes up. Excellent teammate, solid all-around skillset, and great work ethic make Myah an intriguing prospect!
Makinley is a force of a forward from Harrisburg, SD. She has excellent length and shows it off at both ends. She has long strides that allow her to get to the basket through traffic with ease and she does a great job finishing when she gets there. Her outside game is solid as she can spot up and knock down the open jump shot. Pair this with her ability to read the floor and find open spaces and you have an athlete who does a really nice job putting the ball in the hoop. She attacked the middle of the floor all day with the ball and put a lot of pressure on opposing defenses needing to collapse. Her blend of length and quickness make her a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses. On defense she disrupts passing lanes and makes post entries difficult with her length and strength. She can block shots and is athletic enough to guard a variety of opponents. Really solid day overall for Makinley!
Andie is a sharp-shooting guard from Lennox High School in SD. She showed off impressive ball-handling abilities and is a true combo guard who can handle it and score it. She’s a high IQ guard who makes solid decisions with the basketball play after play. One of the most consistent shooters in Class A she is a guard that defenses have to respect with a high hand on the perimeter. Look for Andie and her talented squad at Lennox to have a big winter!
Liberty is a talented young guard from Sioux Valley High School in SD. She has an impressive basketball IQ for a freshman and plays with high intensity. She was a player that caught my eye at the combine as having loads of potential! That potential comes with an already really solid point guard game with tons of confidence and impressive handling abilities. Tempo is a huge part of her game and she has no issues playing the game fast and changing the speed of the game. Her vision in transition allowed her to make passes other prospects simply didn’t see during games. Stock is up on Liberty and she looks destined for a great career in SD basketball!
Harley, the impressive forward from Beresford, SD had a great showing at the combine and was one of the highest stock risers on the day. Her ability to run the floor and stay active on offense keeps her open a ton to get touches to score the basketball. She has a post-up game, a solid mid-range jumper, and is capable of knocking down the open outside shot. Aggressiveness on the drive paired with a variety of moves to finish makes her a huge threat off the dribble. On defense she was one of the most physical players at the event and does a great job protecting the paint area. Her physicality and athleticism allow her to guard a variety of positions on that end. Rounding out her solid all-around game is the willingness and ability to be an effective rebounder at both ends.
London was one of my top performers at the event and jumped out as possibly the highest stock-riser of the day! She’s a talented guard from Brandon Valley, SD that has a really complete game and a lot of passion for the sport. She showed zero fear in taking and making big shots and was one of the most confident guards at the event. A smooth shot from deep she was a very consistent shooter all combine long. Multiple three’s per game, multiple steals per game, as well as multiple assists per game, London was a stat-stuffing machine. She might have had the most consistent day from beyond the arc than any other prospect. Big-time game from this talented young guard!
Tesa is an experienced and talented forward from Valley City, ND. She showed off a polished skillset and made some things just flat out look easy. A smooth left-handed release on her jump shot she hit shots all day long. Pair this with a physical nature off of the drive and you have an athlete with a deep scoring toolbox. Late in games she wanted the ball and hit clutch FT’s to seal more than one win for her squad. An active rebounder she crashed hard on offense to secure extra possessions and brought down a ton of defensive rebounders as well. Look for Tesa to lead her squad this winter before she takes her game to the college level!
Nevaeh is a phsyical inside presence from Trinity, ND. At 6’2″ and strong she is an impressive physical prospect. She has an innate ability to use her body to position herself for paint touches and is tough to stop once she catches it deep in the paint. She has one of the best abilities to seal in the Dakotas and makes it really tough on defenders to get around and get in defensive position. This ability not only gave her post-up opportunities, but also made it easier for her teammates to drive as well. Her great frame and length makes her an intriguing prospect in the paint for schools at the next level.
