Nike Player Scouting Reports - Part I


Some movers and shakers from this year's Nike Camp


July 18, 2000
By: Bob Richards and Capri Small
© MrHoops.com

    The following is a list of players that caught our attention during the Nike Camp. The scouting reports are a combination of the notes taken by Capri Small and Bob Richards from the camp. Players are listed by jersey number...

    No. 1 - Sade Wiley-Gatewood, 2004, 5'7, Lynwood HS (CA)

    You can't help but roll your eyes a bit when finding out a kid that was in 8th grade last year was invited to the Nike Camp. But this kid is surprisingly good. Cat quick and can hit from anywhere, whether off the dribble, a runner down the lane or a pull-up three. Plenty of offensive skills along with a very solid nose for defense. Needs to learn more about reading her opponents and anticipating their moves. She also is very tiny and rather weak. She likes to collapse into the paint on a shot and try for the rebound, but generally gets bounced around like a pinball. When to the floor several times, but always hopped back up. But she is only going to be a freshman next year! Unbelievable potential here.

    No. 3 - Tishona Gregory, 2001, 5'6, Martin Luther King HS (MI)

    Very quick first step and a good slasher to the basket. Good ballhandler who would provide quality depth to any major Division I program, or be a multiple-year starter at a mid-level program.

    No. 4 - Shanna Zolman, 2002, 5'8, Wawasee HS (IN)

    Shanna is the definition of the complete package. It's hard to know where to start. She has one of the best pure shots I have ever seen - most shots ripped the net no matter where they came from on the floor. But she is also a typical Indiana product in that she fundamentally sound as a rock and does all the little things for her team like set screens. She looks for the open player and dishes off for higher percentage shots. She can stop and pop a shot with perfect balance. At first glance she may not be tagged as the most athletic player on the court, but she has such a good head for the game she can easily overcome any lack of speed by being at the right place at the right time. She grabs quite a few rebounds by running the seams in the defense during shot attempts. Plays better as the 2-guard where she is freed up to create her own shot. Shanna should be ranked in the top 1-5 in her class. Reach: 7'02, Wingspan: 5'07.

    No. 6 - Lindsay Richards, 2002, 5'8, Barrington HS (IL)

    Lindsay reminded me quite a bit of Jennifer Jacoby. Excellent outside shooter with notable passing skills. She always hustled when on the court. Reach: 7'02, Wingspan: 5'07.

    No. 7 - Latosha Daniels, 2001, 5'8, L.D. Bell HS (TX)

    One of my favorite players because she played tight defense every time she was on the floor. She is a good penetrater and passer with a good mind for the game. She didn't look to score first, but when an open three was there she could knock them down. Reach: 7'01, Wingspan: 5'09.

    No. 11 - Nicole Louden, 2001, 5'6, JFK HS (NJ)

    Nicole has a true point guard mentality. She was very verbal, always communicating with her teammates and a natural floor leader. She is a very powerful player for her size, and will not be pushed around at the next level. She excelled at penetrating to the basket and then dishing to the open player. When she took a shot she had some trouble finishing. Reminded me of Theresa Weatherspoon.

    No. 14 - Veronica Johns-Richardson, 2001, 5'9, Troy HS (CA)

    Exceedingly fast. Good passer. Reach: 7'03, Wingspan: 5'10.

    More scouting reports to come!
