Elite 32 Summer Jam I Standouts

Ayanna Khalfani of Los Angeles, Calif., was a matchup nightmare on her Cal Storm team at the PSB Elite 32 Summer Jam I

AUGUSTA, Ga., - The Elite 32 Session I brought together more than 40 of the premier teams in the nation to compete in front of more than 100 college coaches. Located on the campus of Augusta University, the event is located in the epicenter of women’s basketball in the final week of July. Here is a look at some of the notable performances from the event.

Ayanna Khalfani (Los Angeles, Calif.), Cal Storm 16U - 2019

July is the perfect moment for underclassman to get on the radar of college coaches. Khalfani took advantage of the opportunity traveling from coast to coast to play in front of a row of coaches. The 5-foot-9 wing showed terrific athleticism and finishing ability in a win over the Indy Lady Gym Rats Gold EYBL. She also showed a promising jumper that she hit off of the reversal pass and on the pull-up. Her talent points her on a trajectory that will only increase in the future.

Kristen Mayo (Grayson, Ky.), West Virginia Thunder – 2017

The Marshall University commit put on a show in front of her future head coach in the championship game of the @BrandonClayPSB bracket. She scored 17 of her game high 21 in the second half to power Scott Johnson’s team to victory over the Missouri Phenom EYBL team. Although she could not find a rhythm in the first half, she found her jumper in the second half and led her team to victory. Mayo’s toughness and ability to make plays have earned her the reputation as one of the top point guards in the country.

Lauryn Miller (Kirkwood, Mo.), Missouri Phenom – 2017

Miller proved that she is near 100% effectiveness less than a year after suffering a knee injury. Her ability to clean up teammates missed shots turn them into points off of put-backs easily makes her a top power forward in the class. Miller showed range to the elbow with her jumper at the event. Proving that she can provide adequate ball screen defense on the perimeter will be a question that she will need to answer in future evaluations. However, her interior defense and willingness to play physical should keep her high in the interests of many of premier college programs nationally.

Emma Anderson (Big Lake, Minn.), MN Fury 2019 Blue – 2019

She may not be the flashiest player on the court but when it comes to production and keeping her team’s energy level up, Anderson is that kid.  She is the classic lead by example player.  She does a little bit of everything from the guard position.  She will put the ball on the floor to set up shooters, dive on the floor for a loose ball and can knock down the open jumper herself. 

Maaeva Dwiggins (Concord, Calif.), Cal Stars Nike Flight – 2018

The 5-9 guard who goes by the nickname “MyMy” is a key cog in the Cal Stars Nike Flight attack.  With a similar style to the program’s EYBL team, which includes full court trapping pressure and the dribble drive offense, Dwiggins excels.  Her strong frame along with a confident and aggressive style keeps pressure on the opposition on both ends of the floor.  She is a power guard who is hard to keep from getting to the rim once she gets down hill off the dribble.


Class of 2017 guard Jonae Cox of Portsmouth, Va., showed promise at the Elite 32. Her slashing ability in the open court allows her to finish at the rim. She showed an extra gear to leave defenders in her wake.

Class of 2018 post Monika Czinano of Watertown, Minn., is a definite must-track prospect. She showed an array of skills that project well to the next level. Standing at 6-3 she has the makings of productive back to the basket post at the collegiate level.

Class of 2019 wing Mikayla Kinnard of Louisville, Ky., is a good athlete with a developing skill set. Her strong build and pull-up jumper are promising qualities for a player with several years left to grow her game.

Class of 2017 forward Abigayle Jackson of Little Rock, Ark., was very productive in the championship game on Wednesday evening. Standing at 6-3 she can alter shots, rebound while also being hindrance on the perimeter. Her buckets around the basket were key for the Phenom and she also showed the ability to hit the trail 3-pointer.

Class of 2017 guard Riley Wheatcraft of Prior Lake, Minn., is a dead-eye shooter. Her skill set allows her to create plays off the dribble as well. She scored it well in a championship win for the Minnesota Fury. Her skills should translate well for her future school Northern Iowa in the Missouri Valley Conference.

Class of 2020 guard Maddie Scherr of Florence, Ky., built upon her evaluation at #EBASuper64 Camp in June. The 5-9 combo guard can deliver the ball as a point guard or score it as a play-maker. She projects to be one of the better players within the Kentucky Premier organization.

Miami Suns EYBL have a skilled center in Sydni Donovan from Jupiter, Fla. She has soft touch around the basket and stands 6-4 on the interior. She also showed range to make plays and hit shots from the high post.

Kaprice Boston has been an unsung hero for EBCA Swish at the Elite 32 Summer Jam.  She can play multiple roles depending on matchups.  Her length and quickness make her disruptive defensively and she can score on the move.
