Sterling is filling out nicely from our first Training Academy in Atlanta in the first part of 2020. She has the height and size to serve as a legitimate off guard at the college level with a jumper to match. If anything, Sterling can keep working on times to find her shot. Off the bounce, leading with the basketball in front of her on a change of direction will only aid her development.

Unfortunately our staff did not get to watch Sterling with her Indiana Flight team as they had a medical emergency that forced them to miss their scheduled game on Friday. That said, we full expect for Sterling to show that she is capable of playing in the backcourt  guard skill wise mixed with the ability to rebound her position from the wing consistently against the best competition that the UAA circuit has to offer.

Sterling looked she’s been putting the time in on her game since the last time we trained earlier in the calendar year. The footwork on her jumper was clean with a consistent followthrough. Like most talented jump shooters at an early age, Sterling can keep growing by learning when to attack off the bounce versus when she has a clean, uncontested shot read. In that way, Sterling is a prospect solidly on our radar.

Sterling is a highly skilled guard who possesses good size as well. Her shooting stroke is accented by the fact that she gets it off so quickly. Her skill moves beyond just her ability to shoot. She showed great ball fakes to set up drives and passes. She is also comfortable at making weak hand passes to cutting teammates. Defensively Sterling is quite competent. She moves into proper position consistently and anticipates plays well. Maximizing her lateral quickness will be her challenge as she climbs the ladder of elite competition.  — Coach Hemi
