Katie Hamill- 5'7, 2024, Illinois Hustle 2022-1, Crystal Lake Central H.S.: If there is one area of the game that I emphasize to players, it is defense. Defense is nothing but guts, intensity, and a strong desire to totally shut down a player. And Katie does this, very very well! Her defense on the ball sets the tone for so many factors- she makes it very difficult for opposing teams to find a rhythm. No, it doesn't show up on stats, but I can promise you college coaches pick up on this, real quick!  She can shoot behind the arc as well! (Featured Photo, playing defense). 

India Respress- 5'10, 2021, Hype Athletics 2022, Chandler Park Academy H.S. (MI): I love players who are not timid and are aggressive on both ends of the court- and India does just that! Nice mid range jumper, and is a magnet with the basketball- she just gravitates to it when it comes to any loose ball or rebound. Plays with confidence, and effective on offense- moves well without the ball.

Ndidiamaka Ndukwe- 6'0, 2021, Hype Athletics 2022, Summit Academy H.S. (MI): Ndukwe has good anticipation on both ends of the floor to rebound, and get into position
