Diamond In The Rough Tip Sheet part 1

Written by Simmie Colson on Wednesday, 15 November 2017 19:25.

17 DIR Lolo

 2018 LAUREN DAVENPORT

DALLAS, TX- PassThaBall’s inaugural Diamond In The Rough read like a Who’s Who of talented players with offers on the table as well as those who will have multiple offers before it’s all said and done but the main objective was “these players came for a reason and that was to get better” and under the tutelage of Team Full Throttle, they took the young ladies through a variety of drills in from of numerous colleges coaches representing various divisions at the next level. I had a chance to catch some action, I’m late but I ain’t done, so here you go

 

 

Lauren Davenport, 6-1, forward, 2018, Plano-talk about proving me right without the growth spurt but Lolo amazed as a youngster and kept getting better. Range from all over as well as ability to create under pressure stands out but her ability to attack and defend is something she definitely worked at and has become player

 

Diamond Atchison, 5-5, guard, 2018, Waxahachie-always was fast with the ball, picked up on the simple things early and just kept progressing, playing under control to become a prototype PG that can score. Very vocal on the court, knows how to run a team

Alexia Martin, 5-6, guard, 2018, Bishop Dunne- very good ball handler and an offensive machine, scores off dribble while blowing by defenders and finishes strong after taking the lick. Good hesitation keeps everyone on toes, nice mid to long range a

Destini Whitehead, 5-11, guard, 2018, Tenaha- very athletic, loves to battle for everything and can defend strong baseline to baseline. Nice touch from around the basket, love the midrange game

Drew Myers, 5-10, guard, 2018, South Grand Praire- finishes strong, with either hand and after contact, defends well and rebounds on both ends

 

Kimora Westerfield, 5-4, guard, 2018, Wylie East- I guess “however you want it” fits her as well because off the dribble or from afar, she knows how to put the ball in the basket. Handles ball well, finishes strong and defends 

Raija Todd, 5-9, guard, 2018, Cedar Hill- sold me from day one years ago, athleticism, ball handling and ability to score so many ways were there early. Has added a stop on a dime pull-up, defense is there and she just brings it

 

Sarah Bush, 5-7, guard, 2018, Waxahachie- sees floor and handles ball well, showed she could score from the wing as well as from mid/long range and did a good job defending on the perimeter and the length of the court

 

Reagan Montgomery, 5-7, guard, 2019, Whitney- more poised on the court, handles the ball under pressure, makes the right pass to the right people. Always could score, shot is falling from even deeper but I love how defense keeps taking a jump

Jordan Rogers, 5-7 guard, 2019, Timberview-athletic guard that handles pressure very well, can thread the needle with pinpoint passes, sees floor completely and can score off dribble or with the pull-up jumper

Kinley Brown, 5-9, guard, 2019, Duncanville- gets to basket effortlessly and scores in traffic. Good handles, with either hand and sees floor well, especially under pressure. Can shoot it from outside as well as defend

Tori Gittens, 6-1, forward, 2019, Gunter- her bombs are playing back in my head because she definitely has range worthy of finding with radar. Mixed up numerous times, showing she could hit the pull-up or take it in.

McKenzie Piper, 5-9, guard, 2019, MacArthur- she’s strong and I mean strong and physical. Attacks hard and finishes with ease after taking the lick. Can overpower bigger guards, also creates well under pressure and rebounds strong

Ariyanna Hall, 5-6, guard, 2019, Central- does a lot of athletic things, great head fake to keep defenders guessing which also enables her to score multiple ways and finish with contact. Good rebounder and defender

 

 

 

 

 

The Next Level 101

Written by Simmie Colson on Saturday, 04 March 2017 13:00.

'17 syd and me

 

HOUSTON, Texas- I love bragging on my daughter and what she’s accomplished but I especially love telling people I told you so. I started my own scouting service because this stuff has and always will be political and even before our new president took office, I HATE POLITICS, but then again some people in certain positions don’t necessarily see things as they should, I’m talking basketball and nm, don’t wanna be sent to Guantanamo

SYDNEY'S HIGHLIGHTS 

Peep this, in 2012 over 100 players went on to play somewhere at the next level, over 40 signed early and this was the first season I started my scouting and recruiting service where I did a lot of “pro-bono” stuff and had a hand, either directly or directly, with around half of those players getting placed, I have the documentation to prove it unless Russia has hacked my account

WNBA HIGHLIGHTS

Fast forward to the past two seasons and those numbers have dropped tremendously, in fact less than 20 players signed early the past two seasons so no matter what you think, what you are being told, I putt the numbers there for you and less that 4% of HS players play NCAA basketball and I’m talking all three divisions

Don’t be fooled by people who don’t know what they’re talking about, I actually know how this works, I’ve been pretty successful doing this and the money you save by just listening is well worth my fee so check it out and remember ”It’s not what you do, it’s what you do that makes sense”
