Impressive Show At Blue Star Nationals 2012

LAS VEGAS, Nevada July 9-11, 2012 – The Blue Star Nationals had close to 100 college coaches in attendance for the NCAA certified event representing 12 different conferences. The invitation only event had several talented young ladies from teams representing the following states California, Illinois, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas. Below are several that stood out.

6-5 Kelsey Lang from The Woodlands,Texas has a polarizing presence. Lang has a college ready body with a nice array of low post moves. She can score with either hand in the paint. Lang does a decent job running the floor transitioning from offense to defense and vice versa. She is a solid physical defender on the low block and closes out well on the wing. Lang battles for position and rebounds well at both ends. I really like her size and game. Definite BCS caliber prospect.

Michelle Nwokedi the 6-2 high energy prospect hails fromMissouri City,Texas. Nwokedi is an intriguing player; she is long and athletic with decent ball-handling skills and loves to run the floor. Nwodeki is an excellent on ball defender and is a force and shot blocker in the low post. She has the skills to face up and attack off the dribble.

Lashann Higgs is an explosive combo guard with great hops and excellent ball handling skills. She has long arms and an athletic build that Higgs uses to her advantage to torment opposing players on defense. Higgs rebounds extremely well regardless of her position and she has an ultra fast first step that will get her past most defenders in route to attacking the basket. She is an excellent passer with not so surprisingly a high basketball IQ to go along with great court vision. Higgs does a tremendous job getting in the paint and finishing at the rim. Once Higgs perfects her perimeter shooting stroke she will have the complete package and pardon my pun a shot at being a special player.

Jordan Hosey. Athletic post players are a commodity especially when you’re a program that likes to play an up-tempo style of basketball. If you’re a program looking for such a player I suggest you keep your eyes on 6-2 Jordan Hosey from Pearland,Texas. Hosey has long arms and speed and agility to defend multiple positions, she displayed the ability to defend in the post and be a solid on ball defender on the perimeter. Hosey rebounded the ball well at both ends and showed that she can push the ball on the fast break. She is a good leaper that finishes in paint. Hosey has a nice stroke but must continue to develop her low post and midrange game. Otherwise, Hosey has the potential to be a solid mid to high DI prospect.
