Cunane Emerging as one of the Country's Elite

NC State commit Elissa Cunane of the Greensboro Gators is becoming one of the toughest one on one matchups in the 2018 class. The 6-foot-4 member of the ELITE 150, has expanded her skill set to allow her to make consistent plays on the perimeter, adding to her already strong and versatile post up game.  With her ability to be a dependable offensive threat inside and out will be a welcomed addition to NC State coach Wes Moore and his staff.

Head to Head: Amira Collins and Queen Egbo

One of the marquee matchups of the day was a head to head meeting between two of the top 25 prospects in the class of 2018, Amira Collins of Team Takeover and Queen Egbo of Cy-Fair Premier. While the two didn't guard each other, but for a few short stretches, it was impressive to see two high caliber athletes battle it out on the floor and get to play through contact. Collins, who is committed to Tennessee, was active around the rim early and then expanded her game to the perimeter where she showed the ability to put the ball on the floor and get to the rim. Egbo was explosive around the basket pulling down a high volume of rebounds and blocking and changing a large volume of shots from the weakside.

Sadler Shines Defensively
Class of 2018 post, Hannah Sadler of Team Elite made a lasting impact defensively as she was able to block 11 shots in her opening showcase game and then follow it up later today with a six block performance. Sadler is an unsigned senior with considerable upside.

For Southern Starz Looney - Knight and Wayne Shine
The backcourt of 2018 guard Ajah Wayne and 2019 guard Skyla Knight has been a lethal combination for Alabama Southern Starz Looney all summer long.  Wayne is a ball hawk on defense who mixes elite athleticism with an endless motor while Knight has developed into one of the best playmaking point guards in the Southeast.  

Dimestrescu is a Name to Know
Sara Dimestrescu is a 6-foot-1 wing from Romania who now attends IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida and is playing with the Boca Raton Thunder this summer.  The class of 2019 prospect is an offensive match-up problem because of her size, skill, and versatility.  Dimestrescu is athletic enough to rebound the ball defensively and orchestrate the break on her own but also has the size and strength to flash around the rim and post up smaller players. Going into the summer, Dimestrscu was a bit of a recruiting unknown, but after multiple standout performances, this week look for the Romanian national to become a hot name in recruiting circles.

Ducket Making Noise
2019 guard Alexis Ducket had a solid showing today with her DME club team.  Duckett is a 5-foot-11 wing who can attack the basket off the bounce and make stand still jumpers.   Duckett picked up an offer from Stetson during the July evaluation gap.

Patrick Continues to Shine
The April evaluation periods seemed like the coming out party for 2019 forward Jaida Patrick of the New Jersey Sparks.  On a national level, the 6-foot forward showed a tremendous amount of defensive versatility as well as the offensive consistency to force defenses to guard her honestly.  Today, Patrick left the same lasting impression on our staff as she was a disruptive defender pressuring the basketball and acting as a shot blocker.  Down the line, Patrick has the potential to give a college program the ability to play a variety of styles and still be successful because of her athleticism and versatility.

Williams Turning Heads
On multiple occasions this Spring we had the opportunity to watch the class of 2020 wing Priscilla Williams of CyFair Premier Blue and have highlighted her as a name to watch nationally in the rising Sophomore class.  Today in a match up with Team Takeover EYBL, Williams made a statement showing she was ready to compete against the best of the best.  Williams was productive on offense as she was able to connect on multiple three-point attempts while also attacking the rim and finishing well in traffic.  At 6-foot-2, the young prospect has a wiry, long frame and will be able to get stronger as she develops over time.  

Highlight Jenkins as a 2020 on the West Coast
In both of her games today, class of 2020 post Jordyn Jenkins of ECBA Swish left a lasting impact. The 6-1 power player scored and rebounded well in the land. Her force is complimented well by her mobility. Look for Jenkins to stand out as a potential PAC-12 level recruit down the line.  

Michigan Storm's Petree Leaves an Impact
In the last game of the night, 2018 wing Lasha Petree of Michigan Storm was aggressive offensively as she paced her team against the Speice Lady Gym Rats.  Petree was effective early and often as she was consistently looking for space to shoot her perimeter jumper.  

More from Michigan Storm
The duo of Gabrielle Elliott and Destiny Strother of Michigan Storm is tough to deal with, Elliott, a 5-11 class of 2020 wing-forward, scored 16 points in a match up versus the NJ Sparks. While Class of 2019 Strother is a dynamic lefty, who can score off the bounce or from long range.
