OLBE 2023 @ 2017 Prime Time Nationals #6thGrade

Oklahoma Lady Bombers Elite 2023 is a very  talented squad and I had a chance to catch them against another very talented squad DFW Future so always remember this saying I have pinned on Twitter "it's not what you do, it's who you do it against" and that will help take some of the guesswork out of this maze of information floating around. Kamay Bowles-Elliot loves to get physical inside, rebounds on both ends and just battles.

Madison Luciana and McKenzie Herman are a couple of guards that just bring it baseline to baseline while Bella Cabral and Nuka Niva Chibitty brought some heat on defense. Emma Waller gets to the basket with ease and finishes strong with contact, just like a Timex, takes a lick and keeps on ticking but the clock's alarm goes off watching Madison Bills who creates well under pressure to get her shot off and on top of that she has range so again, this is a very talented squad with a little bit of everything

Speaking of a little bit of everything, if I included the 6th graders on the Tip Sheet , Amani Henry definitely would have been on it, she's strong, already attacking the basket from everywhere on the court and with her physique and first step, she creates problems for defenders. Those problems expand with her athleticism and ability to knock down the midrange, all huge at this stage. And on center stage was Jada Williams, I love guards that can handle the ball under pressure and she definitely showed that against a talented squad bringing heat. That coupled with her ability to split defenders and get to the rim are definitely assets that will expand her game down the road
