USA 2017 Underclassmen
MVP 18’ Brooke Moore (24pts, 8 rebs, 1 stl)- a 5’6 Guard that has committed to Auburn University, put on a phenomenal second half performance for the USA BallN Select team. Moore with only 5 first half points for the US came out with a chip on her shoulder the second half. Moore hits three 3 pointers which included one that she shoot from the ATL. Her ability to create off the dribble and shoot from deep made it difficult for her defenders to guard her. Moore’s second half performance gave the US the lift they needed to pull away in the game.

18’ Rhyne Howard (15pts, 4 rebs, 2 stls, 1 asst)- We absolutely love the way she plays. She was never rattled and she played with so much confidence. Howard is a 6’2 guard that can play just about any position on the floor. She can score from all angles on the floor and defend just about any position because of her length and athleticism. Howards 10 first half pts helped keep the US from falling behind. Top 25 prospect.

18’ Jazmine Massengill (Tennessee Commit) (11pts, 6 rebs, 2 asst, 1 stl)- A 6’0 guard that is going to give you the total package. She can create off the dribble, finish strong at the rim, she makes really good decisions with the ball, and she can knock down the open jumper. Any coach will love this kids ability to defend as well.

19’ Maori Davenport (8pts, 7 rebs, 3 stls, 3 blk)- 6’4 post that can control the boards, has good foot work in the paint. Davenport come off the bench and offered great defense for the US. Her long arms and active hands gave the Canadian team fits.

19’ Samantha Brunelle (8pts, 5 rebs, 1 asst)- Had a slow start in Saturdays game but picked it up when needed. Her ability to stretch the floor left the lane wide open for her teammates to penetrate. Brunelle game is suited for international basketball. Brunelle is a special player who understands the game and plays her roll either being the lead scorer or being an integral piece to the puzzle.

19’ Chloe Chapman (8pts, 3 rebs, 2 stls, 2 asst)- Chloe has phenomenal court vision and a first step that leaves her defenders on their heels. Her basketball IQ and her speed makes it difficult for any player to contain her. She has the ability to drive by you, pull up off the dribble or knock down the open jumper, straight nightmare.

18’ Marissa Mackins (6pts, 2 rebs, 1 asst, 4 stls)- 5’8 guard with a good hesitation move. Mackins come off the bench and gave the US a good lift with some great defense. She had a game high 4 stls. Mackins played with high intensity everytime she stepped on the court. She has good court vision and the ability to create off the dribble. The North Carolina native will be a good asset for any team at the next level. Stock Riser!

18’ Mariah Jones ( 4pts, 1 reb, 1 asst)- 5’6 pg showed at times how well she can see the floor and get out on the break. Not only did she show that aspect of her game she also showed some good on the ball defense. Sleeper DI kid.

20’ Kaydan Lawson (4 pts, 7 rebs) – The 5-10 PG with a college ready body does all the little things to help the team get the W. Showed the ability to attack off the bounce. Has a toughness about her that we love. Defends multiple positions. Tremendous upside. Top 25 prospect.

20’ Naira Jones (2 pts, 1 reb) – The 5-7 PG is a ball of energy at both ends of the floor and her attitude is infectious, she does a great job leading her squad. Although she played limited minutes she found a way to effect the game with the minutes given. A joy to be around, looking forward to watching her progress.

19’ Kryslyn Jones 5-7 (2pts, 1 reb, 1 stl) – Jones is exceptional shooter, works hard on both ends and a definite DI Sleeper.
