KASCHAE HARRIS
A point guard with tremendous talent. Harris can handle the ball, effectively penetrate the lane and is a dangerous shooter from long-range. Harris showcased all of her skills in the WNBA All-Star and was honored as the game’s MVP. She also copped the WNBA Division’s Floor General Award.


MOLLY LYNCH
Lynch worked tremendously hard all week and showed off one of the most complete skill sets in the ACC Division. During the All-Star game her passing, scoring and defense led to her being named the game’s MVP. Lynch is shown above demonstrating a drill with Hoop Group Skills Director Ryan Finch.

MACEY MENTO
As her team’s point guard, Mento was great at controlling the pace of the game and getting her teammates open shots. Honored as the ACC Division’s Floor General Award winner.

QUINN O’CONNOR
A very aggressive player on both ends of the floor, O’Connor hardly ever took a play off and her ability to take over a game at any time was one of the reasons she was named the ACC Division’s MVP.

SOPHIA SABINO
Her strong shooting technique and great follow through helped Sabino on her way to winning the ACC Division’s Free Throw Championship. Thanks to her balance and good leg placement, Sabino’s shooting isn’t limited to the free throw line as she possesses the ability to shoot from anywhere on the court.

BRITTNEY WRAZIEN
Wraziens’s strongest improvement at camp came on defense. Learning to keep her hands straight up allowed her to make her opponents ability to shoot or pass difficult. On rebounds she improved her two-hand grab on the defensive end and the quick put back on the offensive side. These improvements, along with the work put in developing a drop-step fake led to Wrazien being named the ACC Division’s Most Improved Player.
