Below, please find the AAU Profile for the Maine Firecrackers 16u A Team. Notes provided by Head Coach, Brian Clement.
Julia Colby • Class of 2020 • 5’6 • Pos: PG • Oxford Hills – Julz is an unflappable point guard who is outstanding at getting to the rim and finishing. She sees the floor well, is an excellent defender, rarely turns the ball over, and looks like she is always running downhill. She can also shoot the 3 and plays her best under pressure. Julz is most interested in nursing at this point.
Paige Cote • Class of 2020 • 6’3 • Pos: C • Sanford – Paige improved significantly the spring of her sophomore year and got a lot of attention after the July viewing period. She is physical, runs well, and is an excellent foul shooter. Her IQ in the post is good and she has multiple ways to score. Paige had a college frame today so she will be physically ready for college without question and has had 4 division I offers so far.
Camille Clement • Class of 2021 • 5’8 • Pos: G • Greely – Camille is a left handed pure shooter who currently has three Division 1 offers. She has unusual range and moves well without the ball. She is also good pulling up off the dribble and rebounds well for a guard.
Brooke Obar • Class of 2020 • 5’8 • Pos: PG/G • Greely – Brooke is a versatile guard who is well rounded on both sides of the ball. She has a nice stroke from three with good handles and is also an excellent defender. Brooke has committed to Bentley University.
Maggie Whitmore • Class of 2020 • 5’11 • Pos: G/F • South Portland – Maggie has been an outstanding player in our program since the 5th grade. She is comfortable on the perimeter or in the post and has an excellent basketball frame. Maggie is a high IQ player who shoots, rebounds, and defends well. Probably the most well-rounded player in our program, she currently has 3 division II offers.
Kaleisha Towle • Class of 2020 • 6’0 • Pos: F • South Portland – Kaleisha is a vocal leader on the floor with excellent energy and good speed for her size. She is a versatile defender with long arms and is also a good rebounder. Kaleisha shows up each day to practice in a good mood and ready to work hard. She is also an excellent student and is interested in high academic schools.
Caroline Smith • Class of 2020 • 5’9 • Pos: G • Freeport – Caroline is a versatile guard who can score in multiple ways. We post her up against smaller guards and she has a nice pull up jump shot. She is also physically strong and a good rebounder with a high basketball IQ. A good student, Caroline is especially interested in high academic schools.
Amanda Kabantu • Class of 2021 • 5’9 • Pos: PG/G • Portland – Amanda is an extremely athletic guard who is versatile and explosive. Her on ball defense is tenacious and impacts many games. She also has an unusual pull up jump shot and finishes very well at the rim. Amanda is an outstanding rebounder who can play the 1, 2 or 3 for us. Best of all, she is a tireless worker with a joyful disposition.
Gemima Motema • Class of 2021 • 5’10 • Pos: F • Portland – Gemima is one of the best female leapers I’ve seen on the AAU circuit. She has a rare ability to hang in the air and finish in all kinds of creative ways around the rim. Gemima is an excellent rebounder and is very difficult to defend in the open court. She is also skilled and gets a lot of steals on defense.
