GBB: A few players we noticed ( Hillsborough County)
February 14, 2016
As BAH gets out to various schools and watch games during the year, we get a chance to noticed unexpected players and see top players in action. Here’s a few we got to see:
- 2017 SG Chelsie Hall, Seffner Christian Academy-Strong consideration for POY this year. Takes a leadership role and plays with an aggressive skill set. Hall is getting interest from Notre Dame and South Carolina while also receiving an invitation to attend tryouts for the U16 USA Women’s National Team.
- 2017 PF Alise Davis, Tampa Catholic-Strong and powerful! Once she gets in post position she will dominate. She is capable of controlling the paint and can demand double teams.
- 2016 PG/SG Nari Garner, Freedom HS– Explodes off dribble penetration, plays at a high speed and utilizes her mid range jumper when needed. She can score and play aggressive on defense. A quick play-maker!
- 2016 SG Deja Turner, Plant HS-Turner can score in bunches, can be a volume scorer when needed, she can create match up problems for slower guards. She shows athleticism and a competitive nature when she’s playing at a high level.
- 2016 F Alexis Allen, Brooks DeBartolo Collegiate-All-around player. She takes pride in what she does on the floor from charges to leadership. We really like her play, its impressive for what her size dictates. Allen will leave it all on the court!
- 2018 G Alexsia Brown, Armwood HS– Another scrappy player that can play both ends. One of the reason Armwood won their district.
- 2017 SG Briana Matthews, Strawberry Crest HS– TOUGH! Mathews is known as a hustle player, pest and lock down defender on defense. She’s added much more to her game. Her long ball is developing and her leadership is showing more. She has become a two way player.
- 2018 F Ashley Sieper, Sickles HS– Displays a soft touch and some good footwork in the post. Very reliable in transition as well as half court sets. Look for her to expand on her post positions and mid-range game.
- 2018 F/C Alyssa Jones, Alonso HS– Uses her size extremely well to get the ball deep in the post. When she establishes position in the post she can use either hand with no problem. A really good rebounder and an overall solid player.
- 2017 G Avree Carpenter, Seffner Christian Academy– Displays a high IQ at the PG position, changes speed well. Carpenter can get to the basket and also create problems on the defensive end.
- 2017 G Alyssa Nieves, Brooks DeBartolo Collegiate– Creative ball handler and can shoot fairly well. Solid skill set one of the main reasons for Brooks DeBartolo success.
- 2016 G/F Audra Leipold , Academy at the Lakes-a complete package when its comes to fundamentals. She can make plays offensively and move in transition. Good player!
- 2016 PF Terra Brooks, Strawberry Crest HS– A pure athlete! She’s a bruiser in the post. Uses both hands well and definitely plays both ends.
- 2019 G Brylee Bartram, Seffner Christian Academy-Can shoot the ball! High ceilings for this prospect. Displays a scoring mentality and look for her as the years come.
- 2019 G/F Jalyn Spurlin, Brandon HS– Leading all scores as a freshman in the county and 3rd in the State according to Maxpreps.com. She has a scoring mentality and can get hot at any moment. Look out for her!
- 2017 G Payton Paro, Plant HS– Paro can adapt to various styles of offensive play. Paro’s not bad in the skill set department and displays a great work ethic.
- 2018 PG Nykeria Reed, Seffner Christian Academy– Quick and athletic. Reed has a bright future ahead, should be a young general in the making. Good Defender and excepts the challenge.
- 2019 PG Shannon Lise, Tampa Bay Tech HS– Look for this young lady to surprise some people. Shows leadership qualities and can run an offense. Gets to the rim and can hit the open shot. Look for her to expand on her game and skill set as she grows.
- 2019 PG Tanyia Gordon, Armwood HS– Came to armwood and has taken on a challenge to be competitive. Can score the ball in different ways and active on both ends.
- 2017 F D’Asia James, Alonso HS– Runs the floor in transition, plays with her head up and keeps herself in the play. James is a good team player that will play in any system offense. She’s a do everything player!
