LAWRENCEVILLE, Georgia, – The Coach Hemi Camp Series featured four camps in four cities during the month of March. Over 225 players from more than a dozen states competed, trained and gained valuable exposure in the weeks leading up to the only NCAA certified viewing period in April. We look back at the players who left a lasting impression from the #CoachHemiShowcase. The camp was a two-day camp in which every player received a ProspectsNation.com player card and evaluation. For a full list of players from the March 3-4 camp, click here.


Selma Kulo (Lawrencville, Georgia), Team Elite – 2020

Kulo is one of the more intriguing prospects in the Atlanta area. At 6-foot-4 she has the length affect the game in the paint. She also has soft touch to score the ball when she has angles to score on the block. The tools and physical attributes are there. With experience and physical maturation, Kulo could develop into an impact interior presence in upcoming years.

Ravyn Madaris (Atlanta, Georgia), Team Elite – 2020

It seems we see point guards who are shoot-first and look to pass as an afterthought. Madaris is a throwback point guard who loves to assist even more than she likes to score. The 5-5 lead guard has the quickness and shiftiness to create shots on the perimeter. However, she likes to use those skills to find open teammates for points more than often. When Madaris does shoot, she shoots with accuracy and efficiency.

Kayla Mulkey (Buford, Georgia), EOTO –2019

Mulkey is a sneaky effective guard. While other prospects may have more flash, Mulkey makes the simple play consistently. The strength of her game shooting the the long-range jumper. She has a quick, compact release that leads to high percentage conversion on 3-point shots. Defensively she uses her anticipation and positioning skills to create turnovers for her team. Although not a play-maker with the dribble, her quick passing and vision on the court make her a solid back court option.

Nadia Howard (Grayson, Georgia), FBC Hoopstars – 2021

Howard is a combo-guard who has potential to be a lock down perimeter defender. She has length to disrupt passing lanes and the quickness to hound ball handlers into poor decisions. Howard’s offensive skills are evident, but she has yet to develop a specialty. She has a chance to become a capable ball-handler who can also hit the open jumper.

Kourtney Rittenberry (Snellville, Georgia), FBC Hoopstars – 2021

Rittenberry is a unique prospect. She is a 5-11 guard who has play-making skills on the perimeter. Her versatility is what is most valuable for her team. She can defend on the perimeter and make life difficult for opposing guards. Rittenberry is equally as effective at rebounding along the front line. Look for Rittenberry to gain confidence as she adds experience in big moments this spring and summer.

Sacha Washington (Lilburn, Georgia), FBC Hoopstars –2021

Washington was one of the most productive of the camp. She finished the ball consistently around the bucket. Most interesting, she very confident in finishing with her left hand in traffic. Her physical attributes will gain the most attention from college coaches in upcoming years. She is a 6-1 combo post who can the floor like a wing. Her shot blocking ability and footwork to defend on the perimeter make her a potential elite defender at the position.
