Here is a link where you can see all three of the videos.
I was hunting to see if they had posted on Danielle Cosgrove yet. It appears they haven't.
And they look very similar in there play. To make all three happy, we may have to implore a 3 guard line up with 2 Bigs. That could be the making of a sick guards triple threat line up
If Coach goes small, we could have four really quick terrific athletes on the floor, all who can dish,
drive and shoot. And if Jenna, Katlyn and Anaya can play defense like Jackie, wow!
and that will take care of a number of positions! We've got Mikayla Vaughn and Danielle Cosgrove from the Belles, with possible prospects Celeste Taylor, Maddie Burke and Kylee Watson; and, Ms. Gilbert and Peoples from Midwest Elite.
Throw in the Indy Lady Gym Rats (Jackie Young and prospect Sidney Parrish) and a few others and the Irish have found some bedrock AAU programs that produce the kind of players MM and Niele like.
and school reputation throughout those bedrock AAU programs.
....here's a picture from the latest tournament
That's 2018 Irish recruit Danielle Cosgrove (#32) in the back row, next to 2020 post prospect Kylee Watson (#35), who went to Argentina with the US National Team this summer. To Danielle's left, I'm told that's Faith Masonius, a 2019 forward and Manasquan HS teammate of one Dara Mabrey.
In the back row, far right, is Celeste Taylor (2019) who plays guard for LI Lutheran and also was on the US Team. Lastly, there's Maddie Burke (#25), sharpshooting guard from Pennsylvania.
UConn is actively scouting Burke and Watson and keeping tabs on Taylor, who we've also looked into. Masonius is 6'0-6'1" and is kind of a throwback forward in these days of stretches: can play inside and kinda mid-range. Solid.
much in the same vein as Ms. Gilbert and Ms. Brown.
Tape is interesting in that it shows:
- Some good defensive plays, showing anticipation and quickness
- Excellent passes off the break
- Ability to run the floor and be in position for gimmes...which she didn't miss (at least on tape!)
Didn't see many jumpers in this tape, but maybe the games were up and down affairs. (Besides Gilbert and Brown were draining them all over the place!)
Thx for posting
looks like they divided the tapes into driving to the basket and shooting 3 pointers and mid-rnge jumpers
What a terrific ball handler--is she only a sophmore?
I wrote on another thread that I thought Jenna Brown looks like a right handed Skylar. I cannot compare Anaya to any previous Irish player. She looks like players we usually see in UConn uniforms. This backcourt has the potential to be the all-time Irish Best. Great recruiting.
