The 2023 year is where the GC3 Hoops Platform strived for greatness. Being the Jordan year (23), the platform wanted to take the event to new heights. This year there were 5 different brackets (Premier Mitsubishi, Hoopers On1y, Sabrina Dietcher State Farm, Real Broker Realty, and The Road to Inner Peace) where teams were placed by competitiveness (Max Preps Rankings)
Allison Even 2025 5-9 Guard Salpointe Catholic
The Lancers were without a few key starters, however that gave other players opportunities to step up in expanded roles. One player who has great upside is Allison Even. Even is a dynamic guard who has a nose for scoring inside and out. Her three level scoring ability wowed the crowd as she was able to put a solid performance against Window Rock. Another guard to keep a track of as she has tremendous upside.
Asia Martin 2025 5-5 Point Guard South Mountain
Martin is a solid point guard who controls the tempo. She can facilitate the offense well. Martin is a point guard to watch this upcoming season as she has tremendous upside with her tight ball handling and good basketball IQ. She earned an invite to the GC3 Hoops Super 100 Camp as she has good potential and upside.
Eanae Dagons 2024 5-3 Point Guard Desert Vista
Dagons is one of my favorite prospects since I scouted her during her sophomore campaign. She is so physically strong which makes her a matchup nightmare. Her athleticism and strength helps her emerge as one of the elite on-ball defenders in the state. I anticipate her to have a huge senior campaign. College coaches get involved!
Ellysia Cutter 2025 5-8 Guard San Carlos
Cutter is a guard who has solid three level scoring ability and is a microwave to get a quick bucket. The Braves return nearly their whole team and is looking to compete for anther region title in the 2A Valley Region. She has a high IQ and thrives in the uptempo transition game. Another solid sleeper prospect for colleges to keep an eye on this winter.
Macy Johnson 2025 5-7 Guard Red Mountain
Johnson is an intriguing prospect to watch as she shows that she can strike the iron when it’s hot. She put on an impressive 18 point performance which wowed scouts in attendance earning her an invite to the GC3 Hoops Super 100 Camp. Johnson is a sleeper prospect for coaches to keep an eye on as she showed good upside and can score the ball from all three levels.
