MARIETTA, Ga. – Several of the top prospects from the Southeast showed up to play at this year’s Pre-Season Shootout. With the evaluation period a week away, this was a final opportunity for players and club teams to make final preparations. Here is a look at a few of the players who are poised to make big impressions upon college coaches next weekend.


Morgan William (Birmingham, Ala.) Alabama Tar Heels – 2014

Consistency is the word that comes to mind when asked about the 5-foot-5 point guard out of Birmingham. William’s ability to affect the game with her effort is what separates her from the competition. She can make an impact on the game by her defensive presence alone. She hounds ball handlers in the backcourt and picks off skip passes in the open court like a free safety in football. However, William is much more than an effort player. Her energy is highlighted by the fact that she is skilled with the ball in her hands. She directs traffic in the halfcourt and is the vocal leader of her Tar Heel team. Ultimately her ability to get downhill versus a defender is what makes her a notable point guard in the 2014 class.

William went to toe-to-toe with one of the premier point guards in the United States in Te’a Cooper on Sunday afternoon and held her own. It is this type of poise and production that has garnered the attention schools like UAB and Southern Mississippi in the past year. Look for William to gain even more interest from college coaches this spring as she combines supreme effort and consistent production on the court.

AROUND THE RIM

♦ One of the impressive performances of the weekend came from Brea Elmore of the Atlanta Celtics. The shooting guard from Stone Mountain, Ga., was en fuego in her semifinal game on Saturday afternoon. She poured in 34 points on eight 3-pointers.

♦ Another shooting guard from the Peach State, Genesis “GiGi” Perrymond of Lilburn, Ga., followed Elmore’s pattern in the very next game by banging home five three’s in the first half of her semifinal game. The 5-8 guard has put up multiple solid performances this spring.

♦ Our staff likes how 6-0 forward Alyssa Munlyn of Suwanee, Ga. is developing. The 2015 prospect is increasing her mobility on the floor and showing that she can defend multiple spots on the floor. She continues to get more confident on the offensive end as well.

♦ One prospect that will turn heads this travel ball season is Tynicole Martin of Decatur, Ga. Her combination of strength and athleticism at 5-11 makes her an exciting prospect to watch.
