Women's McDonald's All-American Game Wednesday at 7
 
Don't forget to watch the future Gamecocks tonight at 7 on ESPNU. Jatarie White and Bianca Cuevas are already signed and we are a finalist for A'ja Wilson.

A'ja and Jatarie in the starting line up along with Shakayla Thomas who chose FSU over USC.
Wilson already with a block, Thomas with the East's 1st 2 baskets.

A'ja's first points a 2 pointer from 3 point distance.

I'm just thinking about A'ja and Jatarie being two lefties; along side Aleighsa.. BWAHAHAHAAHA

Doesn't matter where A'ja goes, this game showing there's already a player who "got away" from USC and that's Shakayla Thomas. Best player by far in the 1st half.

Bianca's going to be fun to watch the next 4 years. She is one quick player.

Thomas does look like the fastest non guard in the game. She is just slasher right now but oh so dangerous and athletic going on the break.

Belton and white look like the best big girls out there to me so far.

A'ja told the color commentator that USC and UT going out in the Sweet 16 is giving her something to think about w/ her decision.

I think she is going to UCONN. Sucks!

I think I was wrong about Thomas being just a slasher as she nails two 17 footers.

Any team that is going to make Wilson be 5 or even a 4 should be out. She is obviously a 3. She can be that at USC.

Well, unfortunately I am seeing a lot weak finishing at the rim from our 3 in this game, which is a major problem we have save for Welch.

That can be interpreted either way.. A. I wanna be apart of a team who is still in the tournament. B. (I hope) I feel as I am the missing link from one of the teams who came up just short.

Translation: Gonna be a long two weeks.

True. My interpretation closer to A.

AMEN. I have no idea where she's going. We'll see April 16 at 3:00 on ESPNU.


What I come away with after this is it sucks we missed out on Shakayla Thomas. She looks college ready (19 pts). Likely game MVP if East had won.

A'ja - 10 pts, 9 rebs, 4 blks.

I did like that white can shoot from outside some too. She has some touch.

Well, I hope she understands tournaments have to be WON. They aren't won by showing up on the right team. It's going to be up to her and her teammates to make it happen. Brianna Stewart isn't dropping double doubles on everyone because she has a shaggy dog on her shirt. It's because she is beasting out. And if she wants to win she is going to have to beast out too just about every time no matter which team she plays for.

Also, Shakayla Thomas reminds me a lot of Aleighsa.

If you're the number one player in the country, you should have the self confidence to believe you can improve ANY team from a Sweet Sixteen squad to one who can win a national championship; especially with 2 other McDonald's All-Americans joining you in your class.

Yeah Shakayla looks like a mini-Aleighsa.. And Cuevas (as advertised) is a jet with the basketball.

Not really a mini since is just as tall.

I was a little surprised that contact bothered Wilson so much.

Cuevas play good d on the ball and she had her hands full because Canada was impressive.

I was most impressed with Atkins and Thomas overall.

All valid points.

I'm not really worried about Wilson and contact just yet she will become stronger once she gets into a college-level strength and conditioning program.
I know it sounds cliche' but she really does have things you can't teach for her size. She looks like a female Anthony Davis type player.
