Class of 2023:
Ahtiana Benway • 5’3 • Pos: PG/G • St. Mary Academy-Bay View/RI Breakers – Benway is capable of attacking strong off the dribble from the perimeter and finishing with a soft touch around the rim. She isn’t afraid of contact in traffic. Benway is very quick with the ball in the open court and looks to attack the hoop in transition.
Brianna Camaj • 5’11 • Pos: G/F • John Jay/NY Hoopers – Camaj attacks the hoop strong and can finish in traffic. She has the ability to play inside-out and is a strong rebounder with her size. Camaj keeps the ball high off o-boards and finishes quick putback attempts.
Kelian Cedano • 5’8 • Pos: G • St. Andrew’s-RI/Rivals – Cedano is an active defender who pushes the ball off steals in transition along with contesting shots well on the perimeter. On the offensive end, she has a plus handle that allows her to create space for her jumper. As a lefty shooter, Cedano has good rhythm shooting off the dribble.
Mia Fiore • 5’8 • Pos: PG • St. Andrew’s-RI/Rivals – Fiore has a plus handle where she can create space and get her defender out of their stance. She has a quick release on her jumper and is already physically strong to be able to hold her own against older opponents.
Nicole Melious • 5’7 • Pos: PG/G • St. Teresa/NY Hoopers – Melious is a smooth and confident 3 point shooter who can knock them down with range consistently. She has good footwork prior to her catches that allow her to get her shot off from anywhere on the court.
Class of 2024:
Aleah Bracey • 5’6 • Pos: G • Alma del Mar/Bay State Jaguars – Bracey has great court vision already that allows her to make plays for her teammates as well as attack the rim and finish on her own. She already has a variety of finishes with a soft touch and an awareness to read the “d” and how they are defending her. Very smooth player that will only keep getting better as she gets older.
Giana DeCesare • 5’4 • Pos: G • Ponaganset/Rivals – DeCesare moves well without the ball and cuts hard within the half court offense. She crashes the boards on both ends of the floor and has a soft touch on her finishes on the offensive end of the floor. DeCesare has no fear and isn’t afraid of going at height – she held her own against the older opponents.
Ashley Dinges • 5’10 • Pos: G/F • Nettle MS/Rivals – Dinges is a very smooth and confident 3 point shooter. She is also more than capable of attacking the hoop strong both right and left and has a soft touch on her floater.
