CYPRESS, Texas – The 15th annual Cy-Fair Invitational has been a staple of the spring evaluation circuit. With the most of the best players in Texas all at one event, we look at a few more prospects showing well from the weekend event.

TeAira Pitts (Pflugerville, Texas) – AD Elite – 2014

We only had the opportunity to see Pitts play a half before she went down with an injury and was unable to return to the game. In the half we saw, Pitts showed the full package. The class of 2014 prospect is a 6-foot-2 forward with the ability to score inside and out. Pitts started the game with a 3-point shot in the corner, then caught the ball on the block and was able to make a post move for a bucket. Later in the half she pushed the ball in transition and hit an open teammate for an easy basket just before knocking down another long 3-point jumper. Pitts has a nice combination of size and skill, and with more showings like the one this weekend, she will continue to turn heads on the circuit.


Mallorree Schurr (Montgomery, Texas) – Cy-Fair Shock – 2014

Playing with effort and energy is a great way to get noticed at events like this. One player who embodied this truth this weekend was Schurr, a native of Montgemery, Texas. Schurr is a 5-11 forward who can do a bit of everything on the court. But while her skill set is certainly diverse, it was her activity that really impressed everyone in attendance. If Schurr continues to play with that kind of passion this spring and summer she will make a name for herself on the desks of a lot of college coach’s around the country.

Erin DeGrate (Bowie, Texas) – United Basketball – 2015

There are a ton of young post players in the State of Texas that have the potential to make an impact at the next level. One such prospect we are excited to see grow and develop over the next couple of years is DeGrate. She had a couple of excellent performances here at the Cy-Fair Invitational as she was consistently giving effort on the glass and finding ways to make her presence felt defensively.


Ashley Hearn from Dallas, Texas, is another post player with a ton of upside, long term. At 6-4, the 2015 prospect has excellent athleticism for a player her size and is starting to get comfortable playing at a high level. Look to hear from this talented 2015 post player in the future.

♦ Cy-Fair’s elite team has a trio of future Texas Longhorns guiding the ship this year. Class of 2014 guards Ariel Atkins of Dallas, Texas, Tasia Foman of Dallas, Texas, and Brooke McCarty of Houston, Texas, all will be headed to Austin 15 months from now. But until then, they will get familiar playing with each other on this years Cy-Fair Shock Nike Elite team.
