Finally checked out some video of Rivers playing. Oh boy! I know Azzi Fudd is #1 in this class by a mile, but I am a sucker for Saniya's length and pogo-stick athleticism! And Rivers looks far more than just an athlete— seems to have tight handles, good shooting ability, and overall hoops instincts to boot. Perhaps a better and much more advanced at this stage version of UCLA's Michaela Onyenwere (who like Gabby Williams was a big track star in HS in addition to hoops).

If Saniya Rivers ends up at South Carolina (just assuming they're in the mix b/c of location) she might be just as much a force as any of their spectacular 2018 recruits in college.
Just a month ago was talking to @Jordy about Rivers.

As you already know I'm kind of a defensive bigot. I like Miles, but Rivers has a set of defensive tools that if placed in the hands of a master craftsman could be Moriah Jefferson (NDPOY) special. There is only one established craftsman/woman in the southern US. Grasshopper might have to venture north to fulfill her true destiny.

Through 5 games in Louisville (in which Team Takeover went 4-1) Mir McLean averaged 10.2 PPG (22-57 FG, 0-5 3FG, 7-8 FT), 7.4 RPG, 1 APG, 2.6 TOPG, .6 BPG, 2.2 SPG. Definitely the second best on the team, but a good bit behind Reese.

I'd love to see her at UConn but do you think she'd be satisfied sharing minutes with those two committed guards that are "kind of good" too.....?
Not sure how it would work, especially considering Fudd is target-1 the same year. But they sure seem to still be recruiting her.

Jasmine Lister has begun following Sonia Citron on Instagram.

And she just started getting followed by Caroline Ducharme's dad.

Not sure if it was reported, but also recently began following a relative(?) of Kamilla

- Lots of detail about ACL surgery & rehab
- Will participate in 3-point contest at Curry's camp (Not shooting full 3-point distance yet, but plans to be by then. Might be tough moving around to the different shooting stations.)
- Heading to LA for Gatorade Awards & ESPY's
- Just passed her driver's test (geez)

Don't know their opponent, but SBE 17U has a top prospect in 2021 guard O'Mariah Gordon.

South Beach Elite played a game against the Northwest Blazers yesterday. That's Talia Von Oelhoffen's squad so a distinct possibility that's who Geno was watching.

2022 Alexia Mobley 6'2" SF Angels Basketball Club

Mobley was a rebounding machine in the low post! She went after every rebound and battled down low with everybody. She gathered a large number of offensive rebounds and went back up and finished. Alexia didn’t let anyone out rebound her, and she was a huge rim protector for her Angel's team the entire event.
