Summer 08:Six-foot-two Shauntel Nobles from Haslet, Texas, has both the size and the quickness that college coaches dream of. The DFW Elite post and Texas Tech commitment utilizes that agility in both the half court and full court situations. Her ability to flash on opposing defenders gets her entry passes in the paint and good looks at the rim. In transition she has the speed to get out ahead of defenders and run the floor. On the defensive end that same speed gives her the physical tools to defend almost every position on the floor and be an opponents nightmare in any press. Her basketball skills will have to catch up with her athletic talents as she moves to the Big 12, but everything is in place for the folks in Lubbock to be smiling.
Nike Skills May 08:Nobles has great length and solid footwork in the paint. She had one of the smoothest step-through moves from the post of any of the bigs, though she showed a tendency to predetermine her moves before reading the defense. She needs to get stronger and play with a lower center of gravity starting before she receives the pass. When they worked on this specifically in drill work she excelled by gaining leverage more than muscle. In her scoring moves she showed good touch even after contact. Working her left hand will expand her scoring repertoire from the blocks.
