Class of 2018 wing McKenna Ford of Lewis Center, Ohio, has been in the gym consistently with the aim of improving on a daily basis. She’s off to a good start with her play at the #EBATop40 Camp in March 2016.
Brandon Clay’s takeaway – Film Study Breakdown (Dec. 2016): In breaking down film on Ford, I noticed how her game continues to expand on both ends. She showed growth over the past 12 months taking charges, rebounding the ball and finding teammates with the pass as well. Our Video Coordinator, Kris Watkins, was dead on with his assessment of Ford’s ability to do a little of everything.
Brandon Clay’s takeaway – EBAAllAmerican Camp (Sept. 2016): Ford is a terrific shooter on the wing. She shot it with confidence and did a good job of moving without the basketball. She created scoring opportunities in game play by making back cuts and finding the open spots on the court. Her ability to maximize her lateral quickness will be important for her to defend her position moving forward.
Jonathan Hemingway’s takeaway – EBATop40 Camp (March 2016): Ford showed herself to be a knockdown shooter at the EBA Top 40 Camp. Standing at 5-10, she has great size for the wing position. With her build and size, she can affect the game inside and out. That versatility should prove to be valuable in upcoming years. The area we would like to see growth is on the defensive end. Improving her footwork and anticipation should help her become more effective.
