With the way that women’s basketball is moving across the country, it is oftentimes hard (and even unnecessary) to put players in a box and define them by only one position. Nowhere was this more apparent than the PGH Nebraska Top 250 Expo. Here are the players who proved that they have the skills to play pretty much every position on the floor:

Taylor McCabeTaylorMcCabe5'9" | SGFremont | 2022StateNE | Fremont High School | 5’9 Junior Guard 

It is hard to talk about versatile players without mentioning Taylor McCabeTaylorMcCabe5'9" | SGFremont | 2022StateNE. She is able to score from essentially anywhere. She can shoot off the dribble, whether it is coming off screens or shooting step-backs. She can use her ball-handling skill to get into the lane and finish creatively. She is a great passer and floor general, and she plays with moxie on both ends of the floor. McCabe is also an aggressive defender - she doesn’t take plays off. She truly could be put at just about any position on the floor and bring a strong skill-set and presence.

In the span of a few minutes, she might get a steal, lead the break, post up and score, and hit a three from about 4 feet beyond the three-point-line. She has size, length, and strength inside that make her a solid post presence, and she has a smooth and consistent shot that makes her a scoring threat no matter where she is on the floor. Plus, Webb is an active defender and skilled rebounder.  Mya Babbitt | Millard South High School | 5’8 Sophomore Guard  Babbitt plays like someone far beyond her size. She is explosive and crafty as a guard, but when she gets into the lane, she scores like a post. She is creative and finishes with both hands. She steps through and around defenders, and seems to find a way to finish no matter how tall the defense is. Plus, Babbitt is a knock-down three-point-shooter as well. Her versatile skill-set lends her the ability to play just about anywhere.  Abby BoyesAbbyBoyes5'9" | SGBennington | 2022StateNE | Bennington High School | 5’10 Junior  Boyes might initially be pegged as a only a knockdown shooter (don’t get me wrong, she is a knockdown shooter), without taking into account her wide variety of other skills. Aside from shooting lights-out from the perimeter, Boyes has the ability to post-up strong inside and finish with both hands around the rim. She also demonstrated that she can handle the ball, distribute to her teammates, and play solid defensively. Boyes can play both on the three-point line and in the paint and transition between the two positions seamlessly.  Aniah WayneAniahWayne5'9" | SFOmaha Central | 2022StateNE | Omaha Central High School | 5’9 Junior Forward Wayne has the ability to bring the ball up the floor, create opportunities for herself and her teammates, and post-up with authority. She uses her length in the lane, playing like someone multiple inches taller. Wayne also proved that she cannot be pegged in just one position when she stepped out to the three-point-line and consistently knocked down shots. Her game is hard to define because she often plays multiple positions - guard, post, wing, etc. - in just one possession. Her versatility makes her an attractive asset for positionless programs.
