Schrann, Moore receiving national attention
A pair of local girls' hoops standouts got some national pub recently.
York Catholic's Kady Schrann and Delone Catholic's Sierra Moore competed together for the Lady Runnin' Rebels AAU team in the 10th annual USA Invitational at Penn State University earlier this month. The event attracted 320 teams from as far as Ireland and Spain. But even with that immense pool of players, Schrann and Moore managed to capture the attention of Mark Lewis, the national recruiting coordinator for ESPN HoopGurlz (link to Lewis' article here).
Lewis wrote the following about the rising senior Schrann (pictured right):
This 5-9 point guard may well have been the most impressive floor leader in the event. Her ability to create options with the ball in her hands sets her apart from the crowd. She combines impressive ballhandling and floor vision with well thought change of speed and direction. Her instincts allow her to read the floor and recognize opportunities for both her teammates as well as herself. In transition as well as the halfcourt she is a threat that defenders need to be aware of at all times. There's good form on her jumper and the pull up is there as well when the defensive rotations come. At the other end of the floor, the York, Pa. native gets the job done on the ball or one pass away with sound footwork and intense effort. What Schrann really brings to the floor though is a contagious attitude and leave it all on the floor approach. This is the kind of athlete that can change the culture of a workout, a practice or even a team.
Later, he broke down Moore's game:
If you want to talk about impressive play with potential for more, then you have to include this 5-10 guard from Hanover, Pa. Athletic and cut, she catches your eye as soon as she walks on the floor. When play starts she makes you look even closer with the depth of her potential. Her ability to get to the rim stands out on the break and in the halfcourt sets. Her shot is solid but not quite showing the consistency that it needs yet to keep defenders closing out tight on the catch. She handles it well enough in the open floor but needs some sharpening to her ballhandling as well as a willingness to use both hands. Defensively she can lock up ballhandlers and anticipates off the ball like a defensive back looking for an interception. Her best basketball is down the road and the line of recruiters is only going to get longer and longer at her door.
Today, Hanover Evening Sun sports scribe Cory Mull wrote this follow-up on Moore.
UPDATE: Schrann was also recognized by ESPN HoopGurlz in an article published Monday, this time for her performance in the Nike Summer Showcase.
