Rivera (cover photo) shot the ball very well at the Select 50 Showcase. Shooting is Rivera’s calling card and she made some nice threes at the showcase. If a defender closes out too fast, Rivera has the ability to blow past the defender and get to the rim. She played well at the Southeast Showcase and was also a standout at the Select 50 Showcase. The Junior guard had a great Sophomore season and is positioned for an encore performance this upcoming season.
