One of my favorite backcourt duos in Sunnyside’s Gabi and Lexi Delgado has committed to South Mountain Community College. I had the opportunity to follow their prep careers as they were critical for helping establish a perennial power at Sunnyside High School.
Both guard prospects are some of the toughest defenders I witnessed compete in the state. They had a knack for navigating the court to apply pressure to force turnovers on unsuspecting opponents. Both were solid on and off ball defenders.
When observing their offensive game, Gabi is a three level scorer. A microwave type scorer who can quickly heat up. She is always looking to attack and is good at analyzing to take-away her opponents give-aways. I really enjoyed her ability to hit big shots in the clutch which will provide ammo for her at the next level.
Lexi’s offensive game is quiet however very effective. A pass first point guard, she does a great job in facilitating the offense. Opponents can’t forget about her as she can hit shots at all three levels as well. Lexi thrives in making plays on the defensive end to create transition opportunities on the offensive end.
I am excited to continue to follow their careers at South Mountain. I am confident both young ladies will continue to turn heads at the next level because of their relentless motors and toughness. Congratulations!
