Part II coming at you with a lot of buckets, fundamentals, and role players. Here are six incoming freshman who continue to put the work in as they prepare for their opening high school season. Give them a look!
Binti Awayle, 5’7 G – Blueprint Basketball Class of ’26
Binti is a combo guard/wing who plays within herself and the system she’s coached under. Awayle is a calm and collected player who works the ball on offense, sneaks into gaps off of cuts, and hits her open shots. Defensively, Binti is a sound help defender with active hands who can close gaps from the weakside or help on the drive. On the ball, Binti keeps slashers in front with her strength and anticipation. Awayle does a little bit of everything and keeps a team first mentality at the forefront. The role Binti plays is crucial for team success.
Anna Moser, 5’6 G – Lone Wolf Athletics Class of ’26
Upon first watching Anna hoop, anyone will be able to notice the young hoopers desire for excellence as she plays with intensity in every facet of her game. From quick, crisp passing to fundamental footwork and hard defense, Anna clearly lives this game. She practices with game energy and focus, and so her skills translate really smoothly once the ball is live. Moser gets to her spots with quickness and a low dribble and can make plays for others when her shooting windows close. Lastly, we all know the equation of strong defense includes a lot of effort, and Anna leaves it all on the floor. Moser is the real deal.
Nyankor Ateny, 5’8 G – Blueprint Basketball Class of ’26
Nyankor is a natural defender with her great length, speed, and solid anticipation. When defending the ball, Ateny is capable of making players really uncomfortable because she can challenge jump shots while keeping a cushion to stop an attack to the rim. Nyankor runs the floor well in transition and finishes nicely in and around the paint with jumpers off the glass or layups at the rim. She moves off the ball with basket cuts or fakes to make space on the wing and will either attack quickly or continue to move the rock. I’m excited to see Ateny’s ongoing growth.
Alyssa Small, 5’8 G – Blueprint Basketball Class of ’26
Some players have a natural scoring touch, and Alyssa is one of them. She can get buckets at all three levels and makes good decisions within the second layer of the defense. Small gets into the teeth of the defense with quick moves off the dribble, or she’ll take that space she’s created and finish a short jumper just outside the paint. Due to her ability to create separation and her vision, Alyssa is able to make plays for others, making the defense pay for giving her too much attention. Alyssa can really put points on the scoreboard.
Cassie Boissoneault, 5’7 G – Blueprint Basketball Class of ’26
Cassie is another player who’s capable of scoring at a pretty good clip with threes and attacks to the rim, but she’s also solid at keeping the ball moving so everyone is involved, keeping the defense working and on their toes. Boissoneault can run the point or play off-ball, and she seems to slide into either role with ease. On defense, Cassie moves her feet well and forces players to take difficult shots or create off the dribble, lowering their shooting percentage and number of clean looks. Boissoneault is a fun two-way player who can do it all. She’s the type who can surprise you with 10+ points in the box score because she’s efficient and the ball doesn’t stick.
