In two games on the opening day, Mains dropped just shy of 60 points total for FBC Reign. In that regard, she picked right up where she left off from the summer time. Mains versatility goes a long way on both ends of the floor as she is a willing defender on the interior when need be in addition to scoring the ball outside and inside.

After leading her school to the state championship game a week ago, Mains was back in the gym already starting to prepare for the next go round. She is just scratching the surface with both her confidence offensively and skill set at an elite level. As Mains keeps adding to both of those, the results should show in a major way twelve months from now.

Class of 2024 guard Sydney Mains of Knoxville, Tennessee was right at home on her home floor. Fresh off of 29 point, 14 rebound performance the night before in a win. Mains has shown advanced poise for a young prospect but has all the tools to be an elite option before it’s all said and done.

Mains is a fantastic prospect on the perimeter at an early age. Her game and style of play remind me of current Vanderbilt guard Brylee Bartram during her days in our Academy pipeline. Mains can shoot the ball, has some bounce to her step and is wise beyond her years in terms of understanding the game. As she keeps growing in her confidence vocally, Mains has a chance to be a kid who can truly quarterback a team on both ends of the floor.
