Team 4

Coach: Bronal Gary 

#19: 5’2 ’25 Aaliyah Townes (Ledford)

Starting things off, we look at a player who made a strong impact despite being the smallest and youngest camper on this team, Aaliyah Townes. She’s a young, wiry guard prospect with a well-rounded skillset and excellent off-ball instincts. Townes is a sharp passer, tough defender, and steady rebounder with the ability to score from all levels as needed. Next in her development process is working to get stronger, as it would make her a better finisher through contact. Coach Gary on Townes: “Aaliyah is a good shooter off the ball. She moves well without the ball and is great at having her hands ready to shoot. She displays a good court sense and overall awareness, along with solid basketball IQ and the ability to find teammates. Does well in transition defense. Improving her full court ball-handling , pull-up jumper, and strength will take her game to the next level.” Townes enjoyed a quality showing at camp, and will be a player to watch progress over the coming years at Ledford. 

#23: 5’3 ’22 Lindsay Paukovitz (Fort Mill)

Next, we look at a player who understands how to embrace her identity extremely well on both ends of the floor, Lindsay Paukovitz. She’s a wiry, skilled guard prospect with terrific perimeter shooting and the ability to overwhelm her opponent defensively. Paukovitz positions herself for success and makes a lasting impact as a defender and rebounder—especially for her size and position. Next in her development process is working to get stronger, as it would make her a better finisher through contact. Coach Gary on Paukovitz: “Lindsay has great range on her jumper. She is good at moving without the ball and getting to her spots for the best available shot. She has good on-ball defense and gets several deflections and steals. Plays well with teammates and knows how to space the floor. Will need to improve her pull-up jumper as well as her overall ball-handling to take her game to the next level.” Paukovitz did a variety of things well at camp, and should have a productive senior campaign at Fort Mill. 

#32: 5’4 ’24 Malayka Rankin (Davie County)

Moving onto a player who does a phenomenal job of utilizing her motor and blue-collar approach to outwork opponents, Malayka Rankin. She’s a skilled, unselfish, high-motor guard prospect with nice vision and a reliable midrange jumper. Rankin is a great overall defender with toughness and the ability to play bigger than her size as a rebounder. Next in her development process is working to get quicker, as it would make her a better penetrating threat. Coach Gary on Rankin: “Malayka gives maximum effort on the court and consistently communicates with teammates as far as where to be, and how they can play better. Finds open teammates in the right spots. She’s a great rebounder for her position, and moves well without the ball. Plays good on and off-ball defense, and has a high motor. Shoots the ball well from midrange. She needs to improve her overall ball-handling and extending the range of her jumper from beyond the arc.” Rankin proved to be an asset at camp, and should be a useful contributor for Davie County over the foreseeable future. 

#40: 5’6 ’23 Amaya Glenn (Reagan)

Continuing onto a player who easily stood out as the best all-around defender on this team, Amaya Glenn. She’s a smart, rugged, very well-rounded guard prospect with exceptional defensive prowess and the ability to dominate opponents on both ends of the floor. She’s an efficient shooting threat, especially off the bounce, and touches the paint at a high volume. Glenn is a suffocating defender with sharp instincts, rebounding ability, and the tools to find success with or without the ball in her hands. Next in her development process is working to be a more active rebounder, as it would only make her more productive. Coach Gary on Glenn: “Amaya is terrific off the dribble. She’s very shifty with her handle and can penetrate and get to the basket, pull-up for jumpers, or hit her open teammate. She has great range on her jumper, just needs to get a little better with her overall shot-selection. Amaya is a lockdown defender with exceptional lateral movement. Needs to get stronger and work on catching and shooting the ball off of movement.” Glenn was a definite standout during her time at camp, and should be a clear leader for Reagan over the next two seasons.  

#50: 5’7 ’22 Marissa Sorvillo (Lake Norman Charter)

Next, we look at a player who consistently shined as an all-around leader for this team, Marissa Sorvillo. She’s a smart, skilled, high-motor wing prospect with an unselfish mentality and the necessary skillset to legitimately affect all facets of the game. Sorvillo is a lethal three-level scorer who is arguably as reliable off the catch as the bounce. She scores in a wide variety of ways while getting others involved, controlling the glass, and dominating her assignment defensively. Next in her development process is working to get quicker, as it would make her even tougher for opponents to contain off the bounce. Coach Gary on Sorvillo: “Marissa is good all-around basketball player. She does just about everything well. She can handle the ball for the length of the court, set the defender up at half-court and can pull-up or get to the basket. She has range on her three-point shot, and can score from anywhere in the midrange. High motor with good defensive instincts on and off the ball. She also has great basketball IQ and finds teammates in scoring situations. Needs to get stronger to take her game to the next level.” Sorvillo frequently seemed to produce throughout the course of the day, and should be poised for a very strong senior season at Lake Norman Charter. 

#59: 5’9 ’22 Isis Robinson (North Mecklenburg)

Moving onto a player who made a lasting impression with her ability and willingness to do the little things, Isis Robinson. She’s a tough, scrappy guard prospect with an active motor, unselfish mentality, and instinct for making plays without requiring the ball in her hands. Robinson is a strong rebounder and utilizes her body well to overpower opponents. She’s a reliable defender and capable spot-up threat from the perimeter. Next in her development process is working to get quicker, as it would make her a better penetrating threat. Coach Gary on Robinson: “Isis has a great basketball IQ and knows where to be and where her teammates should be. She’s a good post player from the high or low post, and a good passer out of the post—both to the perimeter for the open look or to the block when she ducks in. Isis is great at running the floor in transition, and is a good rebounder. To take her game to the next level, she needs to work on ball-handling, getting stronger, and improving her consistency from beyond the arc.” Robinson made her presence felt in a variety of different ways at camp and should be a target for college coaches during her upcoming senior season. 

#184: 5’7 ’24 Danielle Foster (Connelly School)

Finishing up, we look at a player who possesses an intriguing crossroads between productivity and long-term upside, Danielle Foster. She’s a strong, skilled forward/post prospect with an understanding of how to properly embrace her identity on both ends of the floor. Foster is a capable penetrator and finisher, but arguably even better as a pick-and-pop threat from midrange or beyond the arc. She’s a terrific rebounder with a willingness to utilize her body to overpower interior opponents. Next in her development process is working to get quicker, as it would make her a more reliable defender when operating in space. Coach Gary on Foster: “Danielle does a very good job of putting her head down and getting to the basket. She also has a good jumper with range and the proper mechanics on her form. She rebounds very well for her position on both ends of the floor. She needs to work on developing her pull-up jumper, ball-handling, and moves with her back to the basket in order to take her game to the next level.” Foster highlighted a lot of ability throughout camp, and should have no issue emerging as a productive piece for Connelly School over the coming years.
