"Who's Hot" in November from 2015

These are some of the standouts from the SBISD, CISD and Lady Gander Tournaments along with my Metroplex Friday visit

Gabbie Stanton-5’6 guard-Kingwood HS

Stanton has elevated her status on the floor. Her shooting has been there but her ball handling has improved. The most important thing that’s jumped is her ability to run a team and set her teammates up for easy baskets. She can play the one or two. 

Tana Driver-5’1 guard-Irving MacArthur HS

I often use the “size doesn’t matter” with this young lady because her IQ and skill level can be productive at the next level. Her outside shooting continues to improve and she always manages to be somewhere around the ball. Knows how to run a team and get the ball to the right person. Great assist to t/o ratio. How smart is she? Ivy League type grades and was just inducted into NHS. 

Torrie Thompson-5’7 guard-Clear Lake HS

It took me a while on this one however as the Lady Tip Off classic progressed, I knew she was definitely a player that could play at the next level. Stronger than she looks, she’s dives after loose ball, has a good handle and sees the floor well. Better than average defender that also showed she could score from mid to long range. 

Brynae Thompson-5’8 guard-Jersey Village HS

A lefty that can get to the hole and score in bunches. Anticipates well and is a decent defender. One drawback is she needs to work on her right but when she’s on, her ability to catch and shoot from bta is second to none. 

Christalah Lyons-5’6 guard-Dallas Skyline HS

Lyons is an exciting player with amazing speed and I’m talking with the ball. Her numbers don’t show it because her team is loaded but she can score from just about anywhere and defend. Good IQ and even more important she is very unselfish and doesn't take a play off.
