Nike Skills Academy-July 09: The toughest competition Cassie Harberts faces every time she takes the floor isn't the opposition. The 6-2 forward from San Clemente, Calif., challenges herself more than other players or coaches ever could -- and that's not necessarily a bad thing. Harberts has made substantial and impressive strides in her game over the past year and climbed to the No. 9 spot in the ESPN HoopGurlz Hundred for the 2010 class. Offensively, she has the versatility that college coaches are looking for at the forward spot, particularly if their lineup features a big-bodied low post. Her form and range can keep defenders honest and even more impressive is her ability to create her own shot off the drive. While she demonstrated that ability to get to the rim time after time, she did have several shots blocked and a few other attempts altered with some of the leaping posts rotating her way. A good shot fake will help her finish in the traffic she'll face at the next level. At the defensive end, she has the size and strength to defend on the block and the mobility to match up with other forwards on the perimeter. The right style of play and coaching staff in her college choice will be critical to helping her meet the demands she has of herself.
Summer 08: Six-foot-two post Cassie Harberts of Cal Swish Black was a steady presence inside and provided Swish with some critical hustle plays on the tournament's final day. Hardnosed and willing to scrap, Harberts mixed it up on the boards and more than once hit the floor for loose balls. Her post moves are fundamental and she looks for the ball aggressively. She also showed an ability to put the ball on the floor which could make her the right addition
