October 10th Premier Showcase Highlights and Standouts
This past weekend highlighted the abundance of talent in our Utah and Colorado Basketball Club at the U15-U18 Premier High School Showcase. Players from both states took the court in a combined format, coached by several coaches from local collegiate institutions, in a fun and competitive environment. With so many recruiting events cancelled this past summer due to Covid-19, it was a great opportunity for our players to promote their game through live stream and video and compete with and against the top players in the region.
Below are some standouts from the event.
- Lauren Betts – 6’7 C – 2022 – Grandview HS: The consensus number one 2022 player in the United States showed why with a dominant performance in the paint, scoring at will and has developed into an outstanding passer and shooter.
- Sam Jones – 6’0 F – 2021 – Regis Jesuit HS: The most underrated player in the state of Colorado can score from anywhere and is always one of the best rebounders on the court.
- Gracie Gallegos – 6’1 G – 2022 – Mullen HS: An exceptional talent, Gallegos is coming into her own and can play and guard any backcourt position. She gets to the basket at will and has really improved the speed of her release.
- Grace Talbot – 5’7 G – 2022 – Chatfield HS: The little engine put on a show this weekend, filling it up from 3 and showing off how well she can pass in transition.
- Megan Pohs – 5’2 G – 2021 – Mullen HS: There may be no one better at her size in the country. Shoots it from 3, finishes in the paint and makes the right play.
- Grace Moyers – 5’8 G – 2022 – Erie High School: Moyers showed she is much more than a deep shooter. Great motor, finishes on the break and has great court vision.
- Marya Hudgins – 6′ G – 2022 – Grandview HS: Hudgins does all the little things to help her team win. Plays with intensity and physicality, and can do it all on the offensive end.
- Taylin Serlin – 6’1 F – 2024 – Stanley Lake HS: Definitely a standout at the Showcase, Serlin maybe the most improved 2024 in Colorado. Great motor, finishes at the rim, rebounds and can step out to 3.
- Damara Allen – 5’9 G. 2023 – Cherokee Trail HS: Watch out for this 2024! Allen gets to the rim and finishes in the paint, can play the 1 or 2 and is improving her perimeter shooting.
- Lily Najmulski – 5’7 G – 2022 – Denver East HS: Najmulski has developed into one of the most consistent shooters in the state, gives great effort defensively and makes great decisions off the dribble.
- Deborah Altshuler – 5’8 G – 2022 – Erie HS: Altshuler can fill it up from behind the arc, nice mid-range game and gets out and finishes in transition.
