Girls Shooting Camp, the first of our three girls camps of the summer, was filled with high-energy play, hands on instruction with NBA and WNBA level coaches – Shooting Coach Dave Hopla and Portland Trail Blazers Assistant General Manager Steve Rosenberry –  and interactive 1-on-1 video breakdown of the players shooting form.

While the consensus among directors, coaches and players was that everyone’s game improved over the past four days, there are a few campers who, either by excellence in games, stations or individual competitions, are recognized below for their accomplishments.

If you want to catch up on any of the action at Hoop Group Skills camps be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.

PLAYERS OF THE WEEK


Big East Division - RUTGERS
MO’NE DAVIS
A team leader and a solid point guard, Davis copped two awards at camp this week as she won the Big East Division’s All-Star Game MVP and Hot Shot Championship. Davis exhibited a good handle and her ability to knock down big buckets, including from long range, helped her Rutgers squad, pictured above, win the team championship.

CASSIE DESANTIS
One thing that makes a great player is confidence, and DeSantis displayed that confidence all week long, especially when shooting the ball. Never afraid to take a shot, which most of the time she hit, DeSantis saved her best for the ACC Division’s All-Star Game and was far and away the best player in that game as she earned MVP honors.

ANNIE DOMBROWSKI
A point guard with strong ball handling skills and an excellent feel for the game, Dombrowski was this week’s Big East Division Free Throw Champion. As a point guard the most important aspect of the game is directing the floor and Dombrowski did that as well as any player in the Big East Division.

WNBA Division MVP - TEAIRA HARTLEY
TEAIRA HARTLEY
An aggressive and confident ball handler she clearly has the ability to take her game to the collegiate level. Starring in the WNBA Division all week, Hartley was above average when it came to shooting off the dribble and using both hands. Her selection as the camp’s MVP was a lock.

WNBA Division ASG MVP - KASCHAE HARRIS
KASCHAE HARRIS
A tremendous point guard who has the capabilities to be a game changer, Harris can drive to the basket as well as step out to the 3-point line and her skills off the dribble are impeccable. She showcased her skills in the WNBA Division All-Star where she garnered game MVP honors.

LYNCH
MOLLY LYNCH
Displayed a high basketball IQ throughout camp. Her ability to find teammates and put them in scoring position was consistent and led to her being named the ACC Division’s Floor General Award winner. Lynch not only improved her own skills but also helped teammates become better players.

GRACE NAZIH
A good rebounder and defender, Nazih was also among the most consistent players in camp at the free throw line. That consistency led to her winning the ACC Division’s Free Throw Championship.
ALLIE OLMSTEAD
Arguably the best player in camp, Olmstead, who teamed with Davis to lead Rutgers to the Big East Division Championship, was named that Division’s MVP. She has the ability to score from anywhere on the floor and her presence on defense always seemed to throw off her opponents.

HALEIGH PINE
Pine strove to get better every day and never missed an opportunity to be on the court working on her game. All week long she was one of the standout players and was named the ACC Division’s Early-Bird Workout Star.

ACC Division - DUKE
OLIVIA ROCKWOOD
A high-energy player with a great attitude, Rockwood seemed to take over whether in games, stations or workouts. While at camp it seemed there was nothing she couldn’t do on the court from scoring, passing and defending, simply put, she was the best player in the ACC Division and was named the MVP at the end of the week. Rockwood, pictured above with her Duke teammates, also won the Division’s Hot Shot competition.

SOPHIE SUDANO
Her hard work all week paid off as Sudano was named the ACC Division’s Most Improved Player. She was a solid defender and her positive attitude and work ethic will allow her to continue improving her game.

THAISE SUDANO
Worked hard from the opening whistle of camp and was always hustling as she outworked her opponents to pull down key rebounds. Played hard with and without the ball and that attitude led to her being named the Big East Division’s Miss Hustle Award winner.
