Boro-July 11: When you take a look at the class of 2013 and the elite athletes that comprise the class as a whole, Raiygne Moncrief is a name that has to be in the discussion. Moncrief uses her athleticism to her advantage in almost every facet of the game. Her ability to lockdown an opposing ball handler is one of the best in the class as she uses her long limbs to get into passing lane or get her hands on the ball while in the ball handlers possession. Offensively she is a solid midrange shooter and will have to continue to develop her game off of the bounce as she learns to combat all of the defensive attention she attracts at this point in her young career.

Peach State-July 10: If you're looking for a young, athletic and attacking guard you don't need to look much further than this 5-10 standout from Lauderhill, Fla. Her one-on-one skills are a challenge for any defender and the approach she takes with the ball in her hands is intense and focused. Her awareness of not only her own matchup, but other opponents as well, makes her an even more effective penetrator and aids in her decision making. While she's at her best slashing into the paint, she also demonstrated a nice touch on the jumper and elevates well off the pull up. Her change of speed and change of direction are both there but could use a little more sharpening as she matures and faces older and equal athletes. On the defensive end she has all the tools to be an impressive stopper on the ball. Her lateral speed and anticipation help her take away opposing drives and force opponents to give it up early and willingly. Off the ball there is a tendency to stand up a bit and rely on her quickness rather than spacing but the potential is there to become more effective in help defense. (Lewis)
