Position: Shooting Guard / Point Guard
Club Team: Georgia Pistols
ProspectsNation.com Grade: 5 star
Committed College: Louisville
4/18/14 – PSB Pre-Season Shootout (Atlanta, Ga.) – Brandon Clay
Durr had a standout weekend leading her club team to the title here. She is distributing, making shots and essay winners making life easier for everyone around here. Durr picks her spots to take over and in for minutes can produce 10 to 12 points that she directly contributes to. Those runs help ice games and/or put them out of reach.
5/18/13 – U16 National Team Trials (Colorado Springs, Colo.) – Keil Moore
We now have Durr rated as the No. 1 prospect in the 2015 class. She is an elite program changing primary scorer with the ability to take over a game offensively.
2/26/13 vs. Buford (Buford, Ga.) – Brandon Clay
This was a great performance as Durr scored seemingly every way imaginable off the catch and shoot, step back, side Euro step and from the FT line. She has entrenched herself as a top shelf player in the class.
9/15/12 – EBA All-American Camp (Buford, essay about national service scheme Ga.) – Stephen Peck
Her ability to create space is as good as anyone in the camp. She can finish with finesse around the hoop or kick to an open player. If there is an area of improvement to note is her ability to finish with her right hand consistently.
7-12-12 @ AAU (Orlando, Fla.) – Keil Moore
Was special here. Showed that she can score the ball in bunches. Went head to head with Tyler Scaife and matched her point for point down the stretch of a game managing to score the game winning basket.
9/18/11 – EBA All-American Camp (Buford, Ga) – Brandon Clay
Made plays especially on Day Two, found ways to score the ball off the bounce. Jumper is still a work in progress. Could play either guard spot potentially. Belonged essay on the floor with Cooper & Murphy. Love her personality, easy going.
6/12/11 @ EBA Super 64 Camp (Buford, Ga.) – Brandon Clay
Good point guard, can also play off the ball. Has gotten bigger. Good frame, lefty. Can shoot it in the midrange, attack the rim.
4/8/11 @ Pre-Season Shootout (Marietta, Ga.) – Brandon Clay
Left wing shooter, can make some plays in open court. Has juice, likes to push the ball. Studder pull-up in lane with a floater. Ok shooter.
7/24/10 @ Summer Invitational (Marietta, Ga.) – Brandon Clay
Great frame, can hit the floater. Good first step already, catches and is ready to attack when she gets it. Jumper is flat past 18 feet but online. Lefty, still lacking that nice right hand compliment. That would elevate her game into the top flight of points essay contest scholarships for college students in the class.
9/6/09 @ Rising Stars Camp (Marietta, Ga.) – Brandon Clay
Left handed point. Good skill with the ball in her hands. Good form on her jumper especially between 15 – 18 feet. Quick, good natural feel for the game. Adding a consistent right hand dribble drive and the ability to defend passing lanes away from the ball will make her that much better.
