She’s Ballin Showcase had even more talent come out for the high school session in San Antonio,Tx. A lot of these girls are legit and have a very promising future ahead of them. This session was tough because action was EVERYWHERE, so players who did well and your name isn’t mentioned, my bad.
Daly Sullivan- 5’9 c/o 2017 out of St. Joseph. Can handle the ball really well, court vision is there, plays with confidence, you wouldn’t know she was a young 2017. Watch this one.
Mikayla Christian- 5’9 c/o 2016 out of Round Rock. Nice size, made some nice moves to the basket and reads the floor well. Knows where the open teammate is and can get them the ball.
Jordanna Porter- 5’11 c/o 2015 out of C.E. Ellison. Can do many things on the court, make nice passes, take it to the rim, shoot it from outside. A definite player to pay attention to, she did some work!
Kyra Lambert- 5’9 c/o 2015 out of Clemens. Did it on both ends of the floor. Quick, has moves to get her anywhere on the court, great foot speed, take you in & out with a nice mid-range jumper. A real head turner and fun to watch!
Gabrielle Connally- 5’6 c/o 2017 out of Brandeis. She can handle the ball and get you on that crossover. Made some impressive moves to the basket. Would like to see her outside game a little more but has a lot of potential. Watch this one!
Ashley Hearn- 6’4 c/o 2015 out of Sachse. Versatile and physical player. Nice post up moves in the paint, stepped outside and knocked down the three, even brought the ball up and went coast to coast.
Alexia Torres- 5’4 c/o 2016 out of Incarnate Word. More so a tru PG than anything, looks to pass then score if she is open. What is nice about this player is her ball handling, very impressed how she handled the pressure.
Madison Washington- 5’8 c/o 2017 out of AAA Academy. Has some nice game, a smooth type player, with a nice jumper. Played solid on defense. Would like to her attack the basket and show off her ball handling skills. Has a lot of potential.
Brianna Millet 5’9 c/o 2015 out of Steele. She is a powerful player, more so a bulldozer, not afraid to bang in the paint. Also showed off her outside game by knocking down the outside shot. Like her versatility and her confidence. A must have player!
Katrina Pardee 5’8 c/o 2015 out of Vista Ridge. You always need a shooter and she is one of them! Nice pullup up game, shoots in motion, and does not need a lot of time to get the shot off. Also, showed some nice moves to the basket, she definitely likes to score!
Yadira Ramirez 5’11 c/o 2015 out of Hanks. This girls can play! Nice court vision, threw some nice no look passes, can shoot, and take it to the rack. Would like to see her tighten up the ball handling a little more. Watch this one!

Unique Finley 5’9 c/o 2015 out of High Tower. What she does best is the dirty work, you rarely see players do. She gets the boards, plays defense, gets the put backs, all the little things you need from a player. You always need a player to do the clean up work on your roster.
Ashley Knight 6’4 c/o 2016 LBJ. This player has a ton of potentianl being that the size is there and keeps the ball high when she faces the basket. Would like to see more footwork, more physicality in the paint, for her to come off the block and knock down some two footers.
Lexi Gordon 6’0 c/o 2017 out of LD Bell. Has potential with her length especially being a young 2017. She could knock down the 3 for sure. Would have liked to have seen more of what she could do. Next time.
Japreece Dean 5’5 c/o 2015 out of Vista Ridge. Has some game at the PG position. She is fast, has great foot speed in the open court. Made some nice passes, showed off the ball handling and was able to get to the rim. Would like to see her outside game a little more but she can go get it.
Kiana Ray 6’1 c/o 2016 out of Austin Bowie. She has great length, can shoot it from the outside, make nice passes, very versatile player. A lot of potential from this one. If she adds more ball handling to her game she can be unguardable. Watch out for this one.

She’s Ballin Showcase had some talent come out to San Antonio,Tx. It’s always exciting to see how skilled these young players are and some of them really showed out. Bounced from court to court to see who was going to Be the Competition.
Corina Carter- 5’2 PG c/o 2019 out of Metzger was a killer. She put on a show for real. Nice handles, court vision is there, can shoot outside and take you inside. Smart player for her age. Watch out for this one!
NaLyssa Smith- 6’1 Forward c/o 2018 out of Heritage has some game. She has length and size, can shoot outside and drive. She can dribble the ball up the court but if she really continues to work on her handles and overall game, she can be very scary. Would like her to get more physical and stronger. A MUST see player!
Tristan Searle- 5’10 Forward c/o 2018 out of Lake Travis is smart and skilled. Really liked the decisions she made in the game. Can shoot, has some moves to get her to the basket, made some very nice passes. Plays with confidence a definite player to watch.

Sydney Hardeman- 5’11 Forward c/o 2018 out of Curtis continues to show off that mid-range. She can knock down jumpers on a consistant basis. She has the length and size already so getting off her shot is never a problem. Would like to see her outside game and more ball handling to see how she attacks the rim, as well as being more physical.
Cassie Louthan 5’4 PG c/o 2018 out of Dripping Springs is another one to watch. Made very smart decisions, can shoot, find ways to score. Nice pull up jump shot on several occasions. Needs to tighten up the ball handling and keep working and she will be unguardable.
Tatum Veitenheimer 5’7 c/o 2018 out of Windhorst is your all around player that gets it done on both ends of the floor. She can score when she wants, if its open she’ll take it, if your open she’ll find you, if your not a good ball handler she will steal it. Very strong and physical player, wathc out for this one.
Jada Peacock 5’7 c/o 2018 out of Ereckson is a very active player and quick to the basket. Made some nice shots, has great foot speed that allows her to get passed the defense. Impressed at what she could do, just needs to continue to work on her all around game and be patient making decisions on offense.
Jordyn Oliver 5’5 c/o 2019 out of Renolds has some skills thats very noticeable on the offensive side. She can score, and like that she will take it when its open without hesitation. Makes the right pass when its there. I would like to see more moves (spin move, step back, stutter step, crossover) from her because she is capable. Plays fearless with a lot of confidence.
A’ja Holmes 5’7 2020 out of Schlather has that midrange game. Like her size and her ability shoot. Would like to see her be more physical and show off the ball handling more. Definitely a lot of potential at her age.
Alexis Vera 5’3 2018 out of Stinson is tough and plays with a lot of energy. Made some nice moves to the basket and was able to finish. Would like to see her show off that otside game a little more but definitely like her leadership and attitude on the floor.
Payton Hicks 5’4 2019 out of Prestonwood Christian is a solid PG in the making. Young with skills, is what she has. Can shoot, penetrate, plays with confidence, and makes nice passes. Keep an eye out for this one.
Diamond Morrison 5’5 2018 out of Tippit is a solid strong player with wheels on her, as in she is fast. Love the way she attacks the rim with force. Solid on defense was able to get some steals. Would like to see her outside game more.
Lauren Davenport 5’10 c/o 2018 out of Parkhill is a smooth player. Has great size and length and has the basketball I.Q. She went to the post and put on some moves down low, brought the ball up the court, can shoot, and drop dimes. She can play! If she keeps working on her all around game she can also be scary and unstoppable.
Sarah Konstans 5’9 c/o 2018 from Trinity Chrstian is a straight driver to the basket. If it’s open she will take it. Made some solid playes on defense, brought the ball up the court and went coast to coast. Would like to see her go left and show off that outside game more.
Ashley Adaszczyk 5’3 c/o 2018 out of St. George is a smart and calm player. She has a smooth type game and makes smart decisions with the ball. No need to take it to the rim when you can just do a simple pull up, that’s the way Ashley thinks, SMART! Nice PG skills with a jumper.
Ceyenne Mass 5’3 c/o 2020 out of Kitty Hawk displayed some nice moves. Was able to knock down some tough shots and get it done on offense.
