Shade has established herself as the preeminent scoring guard in the Hoosier State regardless of class. She’s a rare blend of athleticism and strength. Shade is using both to consistently grow her shooting range out beyond the 23 foot line. In that regard, she has become an elite option nationally who can get a bucket when need be. Being more vocal is a place for her to grow her game. In that regard, Shade has an explosiveness and speed in the backcourt reminiscent of Chennedy Carter in her prep days with a work ethic that resembles former Miss Indiana Basketball Jackie Young’s.

Shade’s growth since our Indianapolis Academy last fall is largely tied to her progress in skill development. An elite level athlete, Shade has been impressive with how her jumpshot keeps growing. She’s a willing rebounder, defender and passer. The next step in the progression is continuing to work on making plays using her left hand. Shade’s work ethic speaks for itself so it’s only a matter of time if history repeats itself here.

Shade has an incredible amount of natural ability / athleticism. She’s still developing her outside shot mechanics but the foundation is there for long term elite level success. Shade has the physical tools and positive demeanor that usually translate over the course of time. She’s a must track for NCAA Tournament programs far and wide.
