LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – The Elite Basketball Academy Super 64 Camp brought 130 of the nation’s top prospects to Central Gwinnett High School looking to grow their games before the July evaluation period. Held on a weekend where most high school prospects are off from their school team functions, Super 64 Camp provides a hyper competitive yet controlled environment for prospects to sharpen their skills.
Here is a look at several Social Media Exposure Program members who rose to the occasion on Saturday:
By: @RebeccaDyerPSB and @BrandonClayPSB
Grace Wardeberg | 5’7” | Baylor School | Class of 2017
'17 G Grace Wardeberg (TN) has a 3.8 GPA & 26 ACT.
— Brandon Clay (@BrandonClayPSB) May 2, 2016
Wardeberg of Signal Mountain, Tenn., showed both poise and skill during the opening day of play. She is capable of hitting the open jump shot and creating for her teammates passing the basketball. She’s a high IQ player who is a MUST recruit for high academic schools nationwide.
Paige Shy | 5’9” | St. Joseph’s | Class of 2019
— Brandon Clay (@BrandonClayPSB) August 8, 2015
Shy of Huntington W. Va., has developed into an almost automatic shooter from behind the arc. Shy consistently knocked down shots coming off of screens and moving within the offense similar to her play with #PSBFamily member West Virginia Thunder. Shy continues to add the dribble-drive dimension to her arsenal and poses as a dual threat on the wing.
Cayln Richardson | 5’9” | Colonial | Class of 2019
'19 G Cayln Richardson will rep FL Lightning at #PSBTipOffClassic.
— Brandon Clay (@BrandonClayPSB) April 21, 2016
Richardson of Orlando, Fla. was going to work on day one. Much like she did at #PSBTipOffClassic, Richardson continues to improve upon her perimeter shooting watching her value as a prospect increase as a result. She came off of a flare screen and connected on multiple 3-pointers during the “cut-throat” competition.
Mya Giusto | 5’6” | Gulfcoast HS | Class of 2019
— Brandon Clay (@BrandonClayPSB) May 10, 2016
Giusto of Naples, Fla., is a dynamic option in the backcourt making the same plays here that she makes for #PSBFamily member Florida Future. She is capable of making the open shot or getting downhill to get into the lane off of the dribble. Her willingness to pay attention to detail at an early age is impressive.
Courtney Baker | 5’7” | Covenant Christian | Class of 2018
'18 Courtney Baker (FL) to rep Florida Lightning on June 4-5.
— Brandon Clay (@BrandonClayPSB) May 17, 2016
Baker of Melbourne, Fla., is a newcomer to the Social Media Exposure Program. She came in guns blazing this weekend showing that she is capable of making plays off of the bounce. Inside of drill work, Baker showed a commitment to improving the consistency on her outside jump shot. Like Richardson, Baker plays her club ball as a member of Florida Lightning.
