GIRLS SHORESHOTS SUMMER SHOW DOWN

The Girls SHORESHOT SUMMER SHOWDOWN should be called the perfect event. TRACEY SABINO AND her 116 teams made for a successful weekend. This weekend we saw what a great AAU event should look like. All games in the same location with the HOOP GROUP AS IT’S HOME BASE.  We saw the best AAU organizations working together to bring the best talent together in New Jersey. The best AAU teams in the Jersey Shore all showed up (St . Rose choose not to play). But it was the teams outside the shore that made this event special . Bill Mcdonough bought his Rebels program out in full force. Kristen Somogyi brought her  insanely gifted Cardinals. The Chambers Jersey Shore Elite, the Masonius Belles, the NJ Crusaders and the John Griff led NJ  Panthers  all  showed up as well. This was a whose who and they were all there to support each other and their kids. These were  programs working together. NO DRAMA OR PETTY NONSENSE.   But this was not just a Jersey thing, teams like the  Connecticut Starters, West Conn Philly and a loaded team from Canada. the Ottawa Elite, also joined the party as well as others. People this is what an AAU tournament should look and feel like. Kids, coaches, parents and fans having a great time and BALLING..

What makes a good event is the talent and the talent at this event looked like the live July recruiting period. You had 7 of the best freshman in New Jersey, the best 8th graders on planet earth, the best juniors in the the state. You had had the best young post players  on the East Coast. They were players already committed to D1 schools at this event. The talent simply was off the charts. College coaches look for a cheat sheet of cheats sheets on Wednesday. But what made this events special was the loud roars that  came throughout the weekend. The buzzer beaters and overtime games brought real excitement. The energy in the building was something we rarely see. But it was the coaching and the officiating …yes even the refs had a great weekend….that made all this special.

 

SHOWDOWN HIGH LIGHTS!

FOLTZ GOT THE WEEKEND STARTED

Saturday got off to a great start as one of the best 8th graders in all of New Jersey hit a game winning shot at the buzzer to allow the Shoreshots to advance.  went bang and it was just a start of buzzer beater after buzzer beater all weekend

 

 

The Rebels high school elite team, did not beat the buzzer once but twice. SHANNON MAY  hit a buzzer to send the Rebels into the elite bracket Finals in a win over the Masonius Belles. But then in the finals they did it again and hit another buzzer beater against the Cardinals 10th grade team to seen the game into overtime…a game that they would win. The Rebels had a special weekend.

Kayla Richardson soon to be playing at  the highest level of D1 hit a shot with time running out to beat the JES Elite who were coached by no other than Dawn Karpell to right the 8th grade Elite Final.

 

The 8th grade Cardinals had there own buzzer beater in the 8th grade elite bracket. Down by 1 with 11 seconds in overtime.  PAIGE MORTON buried a three point shot at the buzzer. It  was the 2nd time the Cardinals had beaten the team loaded with future D1 talent this spring.

 CHRISTINA DiCINDIOCentral Jersey Hawks– She showed up to break a sweat and became the most dominate player we saw all weekend and her coach was outstanding.

CigrrpdXAAAoTIU

DAMARIS RODRIGUEZ- Jersey Shore Elite- All I’m going to say is wow!

DIAMOND MILLER Team Miller- I have seen some great guards in all my years. But Diamond Miller is the best these eyes has ever seen.

JASMINE LYLES CardinalsShe was the outstanding all weekend. Her future is huge and D1 coaches learn the name….that good.

CigSAJ5UUAEXfuZ

TERESA WOLAKCardinals SLEEPER TALENT with a great feel for the game. She was outstanding.

MOLLY WEISS– Central Jersey Hawks- Make no mistake she is becoming a very serious elite type point guard

MAURA CONROY…GYNEDD MERCY ACADEMY This is a talented young lady coaches, she was as good as any point guard this weekend I saw.

ALEXIS HILL- Rebels- Folks my guess is that coaches in Philly already know of her…It they don’t… this is a future D1 lock.

CicQoE7W0AAJoYf

NATALIE STRALKUS Cardinals- She is a D1 LOCK and I believe a impact player as a freshman one day. Only a rising Junior….(read  my blog on her tomorrow)….

LOLA MULLANEY Tom River Starz-  Look she has a chance to be one of the best in all of New Jersey

HALEY MOORE Allen Shore Shots- No question right now is on a different level. Can make a case she is as good as in junior around this fall…no player has grown more. She is knocking on the ALL SHORE PRE- SEASON TEAM FOR NEXT YEAR….THAT GOOD! COLLEGE Coaches she will affect your recruiting board…start dropping some kids down and moving her up.

CicLQ_NW0AEOueF

SHANNON COYLE Cardinals- Folks this is a coaching fool. Her team of babies played up in the Elite Division and if not for a buzzer beater may have won the entire event. Her team plays the game the right way …she never stops coaching.

CARA McCORMACK ST. JOHN BAPTIST- This young 8th grader blew me away this weekend. Reminded me of Stella Clark….what a talent and future.

HANNA SCANLON Chambers Gold- She is beginning to show flashes, she could be dominate at the next level. Mega steal for academic schools.

SAM ROTHCHAMBERS GOLD- There is a major steal out her for those academic schools looking for a quality point guard. She great all weekend…this is a major sleeper for college coaches.
