Top Performers At the Keystone Elite 100 Basketball Shoot-Out at Bloomsburg 10-5
Posted October 13, 2013 9:05 pm
The first leg of a trio of shootouts officially kicked off last weekend at Bloomsburg University. Coach Pete White Sr. has been a fixture on the basketball landscape for more four decades, and continues to keep his finger on the pulse with his series of Keystone State Basketball Shootouts. These events give under recruited seniors a chance to get evaluated in front of college coaches and provide underclassmen with a proving ground. Below is a list of boys/girls that stood out.
Mariah Steele (MNSR MCCLANCY MEMORIAL H.S. ,NY): Lockdown defender with good speed and quickness. Needs to improve going left, showed the ability to penetrate and make plays for herself or others. Projects as a combo guard.
Breanna Mermel (ABINGTON H.S., PA): Great all-around player that gets it done in a variety of ways. She’s a natural scorer, who gets after it on defense and will flat out fight you for rebounds.
Christina Negoescu (FREDERICK, MD): What’s not to like here? Can play the 1, 2, or 3 spot. She has excellent handles, and blew past defenders at will. Unlimited range from three.
Kaitlyn Givereck (MANSFIELD, PA): Good shooter who is crafty enough with the ball to get by defenders and score off the bounce. Just seems to have a good feel for the game.
Paige Allen (WYOMING SEMINARY, PA): A highly skilled power forward with tremendous upside, just a freshman. Comfortable playing down low on the block has some face up moves in the arsenal. Very promising prospect.
Gerald Merriweather (MICHIGAN): Best player by far, and he drove all the way from Michigan to prove it. A terrific athlete capable of taking over games, which he did plenty of at times. He likes to play above the rim, or showcase his fade away jumper. Looks like a mid-major prospect.
Calvin Huh (BERGEN TECH, NJ): Runs the floor like a deer, finishes around the rim and has nice touch from 15 feet and in. Competes at an extremely high level. This big fella has game for sure!
Benjamin Mitchell (ST. JOSEPH, NJ): Not the biggest or quickest player in the gym, but his name deserves to be mentioned here. All he did was make shots all over the court as if he was playing “Around the World”.
