Undefeated Teams After Session 1:

K-Low Elite

The ball movement of this club is a big reason why they are sitting in the undefeated column. They have great guard play and a tough nosed inside player that really make them a tough match up. Best part about this club is that the ball moves. Led by Carryn Easley who controls the floor so well and sets up Gabriele Seibert in spots down low where she can score. She is complimented by Saniyah Washington, Maya Johnson, and Amya Scott. All three are guards capable of shooting the ball and attacking the rim. These four guards turned defense into offense in all of their games causing traps and sharing the ball in transition leading to simple baskets. 

Bay State Jaguars

The team from Massuchests really showed their ability to close games late. Sophia Florio is a player who has a lot of energy and always makes the extra play. She has been a consistent shooter and can get to the rim. Devynn Watford really cleans up the boards for this team and stays ready as her teammates find her off the drive. Ava Black is a bigger guard with an athletic frame that is able to finish in transition and sees the floor well for this club.

Teams To Watch Heading Into Session 2...

Queen City Ballers

The backcourt of Jaida McClue and Zion Pimentel are invaluable for this club. Both see the floor so well and set up teammates for open shots. Zion Pimentel is a great on ball defender and Jaida McClure anticipates well on the defensive end causing many steals. This combo will keep elevating and leading their team as sessions go on. 

Brampton/UPLAY:

This team has all the right pieces and can very well be at the top when the sessions are complete. Kaira Campbell is a great defender with a great handle in the open floor. She has quick hands causing a lot of steals on ball and finds open teammates in transition. Chloe Collin is long and athletic, can rebound and can make a strong one dribble move. Stella Sgro is a do it all player for this club looking to score in any way possible for her club. Carina Wynter-Josephs is a consistent shooter and has a quick first step. They will be a team to watch headed into DC.
