Select Events Basketball put on another well run and successful event at the Spooky Nook Athletic complex in mid June with well over 200 teams participating. Here are some of the stand out players from the event.
, 2023, Power Forward, Philly Rise
This was a strong performance for Anaiah who just committed to Towson University. She is a strong and physical power forward that does her best work inside, but she has refined her jump shot and it looked pure from the three point line as she knocked down multiple treys. Looking for a big senior season for her at McDonogh.
Hannah Hidalgo, 2023, Point Guard, Philly Rise
Hannah spent the day blowing by defenders and showing everyone why she’s one of the top 23’s in the country. Her handle is tight, she can make any shot on the floor and she knows how to run an offense. She showed why she has a rack of offers and is on her way to Colorado for to get ready for FIBA World Cup.
Mikayla Blakes, 2024, Point Guard, New Jersey Gemz
This was first time seeing Mikayla and I came away super impressed. She can get wherever she wants to go on the court and knows how to finish when she gets there. She has some nice dribble moves to create separation and a serious burst at the rim. She’s an exceptional athlete and an excellent rebounder so she gets a ton of coast to coast opportunites. Defenses have to account for at all times. She’s a solid on ball defender and a capable three point shooter.
Morgan Matthews, 2024, Wing, New Jersey Gemz
At 6’0″ Morgan has the length you want to see in a prospect but that is not what stands out about her. Her activity level and motor on the defensive end was the best I saw all day. She fights through screens, bumps cutters, and beats people to their spots. She is very disruptive and can guard multiple positions. On offense she is a slasher and a good finisher. Her three point shot looked good.
Aiobhe Gormley, 2023, Point Guard, Mass Huskies
Ms. Gormley is a Boston University recruit and she should step right into a nice role of some sort right away. She is an excellent floor general and she controlled the game, sometimes dominating on both ends. She can facilitate and score and made things look easy with her speed and athleticism. She is a shot maker from all three levels and plays solid on ball defense.
, 2023, Guard, Maryland Shooting Stars
Amourie is a fierce competitor who plays physical and has a nice arsenal of mid range shots and floaters. She is physically strong and explosive, especially when playing off two feet. She can play some point guard and accepts the challenge of guarding the best player regardless of pos
, 2023, Forward, Maryland Shooting Stars.
Cora has legit size at 6’2″ and is set up to have a great summer. She has excellent length and footwork and is able to finish in traffic with both hands.
