695HOOPS WHERE IT'S ALWAYS ALL ABOUT THE GIRLS
I spent a few hours at the Maryland Team Camp on Saturday, June 25th. Coach Brenda Frese and her staff run one of the best team camps around, and as usual they attracted some excellent talent. Here are a few players who caught my eye.
Nina Davy, 2021, The Matrix (VA)
Nina is a great athlete and she can play. She has a strong, text book triple threat stance that allows her to utilize her killer first step to beat defenders. She is dangerous in the open court because she can handle the ball and finish plays with the pass or a bucket. She has the potential to end up at the top of the DMV's 2021 class. I'm hoping to see her at a Girls Middle School Showcase in the fall.
Mikiyah Mallett,2020, Team AIP (MD)
Ms. Mallett is a big physical guard that creates match up problems. she can post up and play out on the perimeter. She is a scorer and gets a solid number of free throw attempts per game. She will be at Old Mill in the fall.
Madison Greene, 2018, Fairfax Stars
I enjoyed watchin Ms. Green compete. She brought energy and set the tone defensively for her team. She has a solid build and excels at picking the pocket of guards who get careless with the ball. She has a nice arsenal of change of direction moves. Solid point guard prospect.
Marjanae Coley, 2017, Henrico High School
Marjanae has a strong motor and used it to wreak havoc on defense, especially in the press. She's about 5'9" with long arms and great lateral quickness and she knows how to use it. She scored a bunch of points of turnovers and showed a nice touch on the perimeter. She has interest from Lincoln University but I think she is going to pick up more followers this summer.
Rayniah Walker, 2019, Team Takeover
Rayniah is a smooth wing player who can finish with both hands. She has the size and talent to make a name for herself on both ends of the floor. I only saw limited action but she stood out.
Nadjy Tyler, 2019, Philly Triple Threat
Nadjy had a strong game when I watched. She's about 6'2" and still a little raw but she played to her strengths. She is a great rebounder, particularly on the offensive glass where she grabs them by the bushel and converts them into points. She seems very coachable so she could develop into a serious post prospect in her class.
Imani Mustaf, 2018, Fairfax Stars
At 6'4" Imani stands out in most crowds. The first time I saw her was when she was at St. James in Hagerstown. She is fairly inexperienced as she has only been playing a couple of years, but she has made good progress. She is fluid in her motions and has decent timing which allows her to block shots without fouling. I'm hoping to see her again in late July.
