Hoop-A-Holics Recap Part 2 of more Standout Players.
Deyona Gaston: 5’11 6th Grade Forward for Morris Middle School came and made a statement in session 2. She was physical, grabbed boards, could shoot from the outside, blocked shots. She had all around game and for her height, she did exactly what she was suppose to do, DAMAGE! A definite player to watch would like to see her add some ball handling to her game so she is more versatile at the 2-3 position.
Charli Collier: 6’4 8th Grade Forward the UT commit, came through and dominated that paint. Block shots if you came near her, did her drop step with ease, turn around face up jumper was on point. Brought the ball up the court on occasion if the PG was not available. The match up between Charli and Elizabeth Scott was entertaining to watch.
Deja Kelly: 5’6 6th Grade PG for the South Texas Hoyas is another youngin to lookout for. She distributes the ball very well, with her handles she can get to the rack when she wants. Also makes smart decisions on when to shoot and when to drive. Would like her to be more of a vocal leader on the court.
Elizabeth Scott: 5’10 7th Grade Forward for DFW is nice! Love how she can bring the ball up the court. Is very vocal and calls for the ball with her hand up to let her teammates know she is open. Will dive on the floor for a loose ball, everything you want in a player coming up she does it. Very coordinated and skilled, runs the floor.
Kennedy Taylor: 5’3 8th Grade PG for the Lady Big Dogs showed some great court vision as well and knew where her teammates were. Made some nice finishes to the basket, played solid defense, and had a nice jumper along with some range from 3 point land.
Kennady Tucker: 5’8 7th Grade PG for Pulaski Heights can definitely play. Another player that can take it coast to coast if you let her.

Would like to see more from her. A definite player to pay attention to!

Brooke can only get better if she keeps working!
Alexis Vera: 5’2 8th Grade PG for San Antonio’s Finest was definitely one to watch. She was a spark when she subbed in the game, plays with high intensity, talks on offense and defense, was able to stop and pop and get to the rack. She works hard on the court so it must match how she practices. A player to watch!
Celeste Moore: 5’1 8th Grade PG for the Lady Bull Dogs was physical, strong, and attacked the rim when it was open. Solid on defense, she liked to pressure and stay up and sit on the pass. Also, made some nice passes on the penetrate and dish.

DiJanae McCarty: 5’6 7th Grade PG. She is a killer, real nice with the handles and it allows her to get the rim. Her court vision is solid, she makes the extra pass to the open teammate, but she is a scorer. Would like to see her improve on that outside shot. A player to watch for sure!
