Ariel Atkins of the University of Texas is just too much on the court and always has been since high school. Plays with so much passion and energy on both ends and it’s great to see her add more consistency to her shot. She’s coming off screens ready to shoot, even pulling up for the mid-range, and knocks it down. Her defense has always been on another level but her I.Q and footwork is ridiculous. When she grabbed the steal and threw the ball in front of her so she could get to the basket faster, was just fundamental! Atkins is incredible to watch. Tune in Saturday (tomorrow) to watch her and the USA U23 team play Australia at 5:30am EDT.
