Nike Nationals-July 10: With Massengale on hand her time was somewhat limited but she still demonstrated all the skills and potential that were evident throughout the summer. Her on ball defense was much more aggressive in Augusta. (Lewis)

Music City-July 10: Tennessee Flight Silver entered the tournament as winners of two elite showcase tournaments in July -- Premier 64 (Frisco, Texas) and Battle on the Boro (Murfreesboro, Tenn.). Those feats were accomplished without starting point guard Ariel Massengale, who had been leading Team USA 17U to a Gold medal finish of her own. Luckily for the Flight Silver faithful, their backup point guard was of high caliber. Cason is a stoutly built lead guard who is as fearless as they come and a top-level competitor. She is a dual threat at the position -- a scoring point guard capable from scoring anywhere on the floor, and also a strong and fast floor general who can manage the collection of ultra-talented players that make up the Flight Silver. A single-handed press breaker herself, Cason will make you pay for anything resembling full-court pressure. She weaves in and out of traps like a speedway car and delivers a nice midrange pull-up just for good measure. Defensively, she hawks the ball with the best of them and is also willing to take a charge or two as we witnessed during one viewing. She has to do a much better job in the turnover department as unforced errors are her signature weakness -- a weakness that can be corrected with more focus. (Powell)

Battle in the Boro-July 10: Small but stout point guard. Lots of quickness and speed combine with impressive ballhandling skills. Gets to the rim but size can be an issue at times in her own ability to be a consistent scorer. Give her any open look and you can pretty much count it. Decision making has it's moments, especially in transition. Defensively she's tough on ball but challenged by bigger match ups. (Lewis)
