D-1 Nation Travels South

This week I had a chance to travel down to San Antonio to catch a few key match ups in District 26 5A. 

San Antonio MacArthur45  San Antonio Johnson37
This seem to be a runaway early on as MacArthur came out executing very well and took a 12 point lead into the half.

(L) 2011 G Marrisa Cantu of MacArthur lead the way with 12. Marrisa is a smooth PG with a great skill set. Cantu showed excellent ball handling with a true understanding of how to lead her team. Cantu has nice range on her shot and continued to attack the basket every chance she got.

(R) 2014 G Re'cee Caldwell of Johnson seem to struggle early on and finished with 15. Caldwell is a high quality player with excellent skills. Caldwell has superior ball handling, passing, and shooting skills. One of things I like most about Caldwell is her ability to get teammates involved and her aggressive play at the basket. 

San Antonio Regan 52  San Antonio Churchill 43 
Regan did an excellent job defensively to fight off the Lady Chargers.

2013 W Sabrina Berry of Regan is very explosive. Berry has a nice touch on her shot with the ability to put the ball on the floor and attack the basket. Berry has adequate size with great athleticism. Sabrina is definitely a next level player and will continue to do great things in the future.

2013 G 5'10 Carly Truesdale of Churchill is a high quality player that competes on a very high level. With her size and ability to handle the basketball she becomes a tough match up for most defenders. Carly has excellent ball handling, passing, and shooting skills with great moves to take you off the bounce.  Truesdale shows great maturity with her ball handling and outstanding court vision. One of the things I like most about Carly is the way she moves without the ball, and her ability to come off screens to shoot. Truesdale is academically sound with great skills and will be a major prospect in the class of 2013.
