CHANDLER, Ariz. – The first day of the Nike Tournament of Champions is always highlighted by star power, and this year is no different.  The opening salvo included a matchup of two of the country’s most prolific scorers in Connecticut-bound senior Saniya Chong of Ossining (N.Y.) and sophomore sensation Katie Lou Samuelson of Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.).

The marquee matchup afforded homelessness in america essay us with an easy call for the Player of the Day as Samuelson’s team won big and she headlined with 34 points.  Having watched Samuelson with her club team and here at the TOC last year with Edison High School (Huntington Beach, Calif.) and not only is she a bonafide star, but her game is growing.

We’ve seen all three Samuelson sisters shoot the three over the years but the youngest is really evolving into a complete scorer in every help me write my paper sense of the word.  She is still good knocking down open threes with regularity but isn’t settling for those shots.  Defensively she is flying around in the Mater Dei press and finding a way to be a rebounding presence, both things that don’t fit the “shooter” stereotype but are reasons she is considered one of the top players in the country in the 2015 class.
