Chicagoland Showcase Seniors Impress
Jeannie Boehm

PALATINE, Ill. – The Chicagoland Showcase has become a staple of the Midwest coverage calendar pitting some of the region’s top school programs against each other. This year’s event was no different. Here’s a look at the top seniors from the event:

Ranked No. 22 overall, Jeannie Boehm of Winnetka, Ill., is one of the premier back-to-basket scorers nationally. The Harvard signee continues to grow her game using both hands to finish around the rim on offense. Defensively, Boehm impacted the game with her willingness to talk on ball screens and rebounding in lane.

For the second straight year in this event, Kathleen Doyle of Lisle, Ill., was locked in. The future Nebraska Cornhusker is a dynamic, athletic option at the point guard position. The four-star option put herself in a position to earn an extra half star with her play here against classmate Tyasha Harris.

Nicole Ekhomu signed with Florida State in the early period. Ranked No. 29 nationally, Ekhomu is a guard more than capable of getting to the lane and knocking down a shot. In this setting, the four-star-plus perimeter threat showcased improved both decision-making and the ability to hit the outside jump shot.

Indiana signee Darby Foresman is ranked No. 55 nationally. Foresman brings size and length to the interior. She runs the floor well in transition and doesn’t need a ton of interior touches to be effective. Foresman is at her best when she’s facing the basket right now with touch out to the 3-point line.

Tyasha Harris is ranked No. 18 nationally and sits as the No. 2 available prospect on the board. Harris has good size on the ball at point guard and showed herself as a player capable of making open jump shots as well. She is listing South Carolina, Rutgers, Kentucky, Purdue, Ohio State and Iowa as her potential finalists.

Brandon Clay serves as the WNBA Director of Scouting for and owns The International Report, which is picked up by more than 150 colleges and universities nationwide. He serves as the Executive Camp Director for the Elite Basketball Academy Camps. He serves on the Naismith Trophy Men’s / Women’s College Player of the Year Academy and is chairman of the HS Boys / Girls Board of Selectors and is on the McDonald’s All-American Selection Committee.
