Super Sunday-Jan. 09: Devon Kane of the Academy of Notre Dame De Namur (Villanova, Pa.) does a little bit of everything and will join Carey in Villanova's back court next season. She pushes the ball and plays aggressive from both the point and shooting guard positions. She played an inspired game against Peddie scoring a game-high 22 points and showed she can knock down long jumpers or put the ball on the floor and make things happen. She is also an accomplished passer who makes players around her better.
Summer 08:A point guard with good instincts and an above-average knowledge of the game, Devon Kane of Springfield, Pa., holds her team together when she's on the court.
Kane is a slender guard from Notre Dame Academy who can consistently finish around the basket in traffic - and with either hand. While she could work on creating space for her own shot on the perimeter, she is a dangerous threat when left open beyond 17 feet. Kane also is deceptively quick. She'll get up the court with the ball in a hurry and really keep pressure on defenses by her ability to push tempo.
What's most impressive about Kane is her basketball IQ. Because of her solid game management, it's easy to see why the Comets 15-and-under team held its own in matchups against older teams this summer. Kane is smart with the ball, and displays great court vision. She makes good decisions and maintains composure during pressure-packed situations.
A tighter dribble versus quick, athletic guards and improved upper body strength will make Kane even tougher to stop in the next few years.
