Aaliyah Lewis (Staten Island, N.Y.), Ring City Elite – 2013
Lewis was impressive this weekend. She embraces the role of the point guard and a vocal leader on the court. On the court she runs the show and controls tempo as well as anyone in the nation. Perhaps her greatest attribute on and off the court is her willingness to lead. Even in this camp setting she could me as a writer essay be heard encouraging her teammates. It is this leadership that makes her a feature player of the Super 64 Camp.
Faith Woodard (Brandon, Fla.), Essence – 2013
The forward out of Florida is a player who has put it all together over the past twelve months. She showed why she is on the radar of many BCS programs at the EBA Super 64 camp. Woodard who can play in the pivot uses her length to score over smaller defenders. However, Woodard’s game has elevated with improved aggressiveness and skill in the face up area.
