Blue Chip Fall - Oct '10: With shooting at such a premium in this game, Boudreaux, of Andover, Mass., is certain to be a hot recruiting commodity. A rangy 5-10, she has as sweet a shooting stroke as we've seen at this level. Her motion is economical, so she gets her shot off quickly. She also appears supremely relaxed on her launches and nary a muscle seems to strain even from long distances. What we didn't see in individual and team settings this weekend is what is keeping her out of the penthouse of this class -- so far. She is not a high-energy player, which shows mostly at the defensive end, and she can play off her amazing long-distance feats more by juking defenders into the air and using her long strides to find a shot elsewhere. Boudreaux sees the court well but often does not pound the ball hard enough on the bounce to control it completely, as well as move quickly enough from dribble to pass to execute plays. Those merely are nits to pick with a player who already can play at a high level, but has a choice as to taking it even higher yet. (Nelson)

AAU Orlando-July 10: The last game of the event was that of the 15U Division II Championship. While most scouts, coaches, naysayers and fans alike had decided enough was enough after a seven day journey saw well over 500 games, it was the last that may have had the greatest individual performances. It was that of Boudreau who recorded a 38-point performance that was, simply put, spectacular. During one second-half stretch, Boudreau scored 13 consecutive points, including back-to-back-to-back 3-pointers that all but captured the championship for her Shooting Stars team. She's not just a shooter, her passing skills are well beyond her years and her swagger will excite the most casual of fans. This shooting star is rising and deservingly so . (Powell)

AAU 15U Division II, 2010: Boudreau is a combo guard with a great combination of shooting range and court vision. She possesses a great feel for the game and makes her team and teammates better. She exploded for 38 points in the championship game, including three consecutive 3-pointers to seal the game. Her passing skills will make her a high-major candidate. Slightly built, she'll need to add strength to her wiry frame. Her game seems to translate well to the college level.
