The Bay Area Basketball Coaches Association, FInest Hoops, and Cal Hi Sports did a fantastic job in compiling the 120+ Teams as the event was filled with numerous college prospects for every level. Here are some of the prospects who caught my eye the last day of the event:
Alexa Perryman 2025 5-3 Guard San Joaquin Memorial (CA)
Perryman is a pesky defender who wreaks havoc on the defensive end. She has a relentless motor and utilizes her quickness to be all over the court. I liked her offensive ability to slice and dice through defenders to get to the rim. Overall her playmaking ability and competitiveness caught my attention.

Ford is a solid looking small college prospect. She holds her own inside by defending the paint and cleaning the glass on both ends of the floor.

Dylan Zapolski 2026 5-6 Guard Justin Siena (CA)
Zapolski made some huge plays in her team’s game against Pyramid Lake. She has range and great playmaking ability on both ends of the floor. With being an underclassmen, Zapolski has room to continue to develop. She is another solid small college prospect.

Schat plays with good confidence which is evident why she can knockdown shots in crucial moments of the game. A solid shooting guard who has range and consistency, Schat lit it up for 30 points in the game I watched her. Besides hitting shots from deep, she can drive the ball and finish at the rim. A junior poised to have a huge year this upcoming winter.

A downhill slashing guard who makes plays. She can score at all three levels and plays with a lot of passion and energy. Keller sparked her team’s win over a solid Pyramid Lake squad. With continued development, Keller will be a solid pickup for a small college looking for a combo guard.
Layla Dixon 2026 5-11 Wing Carondelte (CA)
Dixon has an incredible feel for the game and great court awareness. She reads the passing lanes well to snag steals and is a certified bucket from all three levels.

Lara is a baller, she can flat out go. A southpaw combo guard who can score at three levels. Her play reminds me of a diamondback as she strikes hard and quick. Lara plays extremely aggressively and leaves everything out on the court. A solid prospect with a lot of upside.
Shalaya Barraza 2024 5-3 Point Guard Pyramid Lake (NV)
Barraza is a crafty three level point guard who has a relentless motor. Her team is battle tested and tough which is led by the play of herself and backcourt mate Lara. The Lakers beat some bigger schools with their uptempo style. Barraza did a fantastic job on both ends of the floor as one of the team’s leaders. In order for the Lakers to defend their 1A State Title, Barraza needs to continue to lead her team.
Taissa Queiroz 2025 6-0 Guard Newman(CA) Queiroz is an intriguing high major prospect as she has the skills and ability to be a solid combo guard. A swiss army knife who can score at all three levels, facilitate, and handle the rock, Queiroz wowed me with her poise and decision making. I am confident many power five schools will be after her as she is a big guard with tremendous upside.
