The Inaugural GC3 Hoops Spring Warm Up Team Showcase tipped off on Saturday, April 13, 2024 at Sandra Day O’Connor High School. The event hosted 20 teams for a 1-Day Team Showcase. Highlights of the event include two showcase games, regulation clock, and exposure from the GC3 Report. Inspired by Arizona Basketball Official Legend, Anthony Estrada, the event had a refreshing spin on the overtime rules.

If the game ends in a tie; the team who has possession will get a chance to defer or shoot the first free throw. The Head Coach is assigned to shoot the tie breaker shot. Out of all the games, we had one game go into overtime where NWT edged the Tucson Swarm. NWT Head Coach Jjay Jones hit the game winner with ice in his veins. It brought fun and excitement to the event. Here is the first recap of the event which college coaches who need 2024s to fill roster spots must look into:

Alicia Ibarra NWT 2024 5-7 Wing

Ibarra is one of the best available wings still on the board. She has a good handle and footwork. I like her inside scoring ability, especially her low post moves. It was evident she could post up opponents and utilize her back to the basket scoring ability on isolation plays. Ibarra will be a good pickup for teams needing a player who can impact the game. 

Katelyn Larney NWT 2024 5-9 Wing

Larney is a prospect who flat out makes the right plays when her team needs it. I like the way she competes hard on both ends of the floor. She would be a phenomenal pickup for  a college program looking for a microwave type playmaker. Larney has good three level scoring ability and knows how to use her length on the defensive end. College coaches needing a 2024 to fill their roster should scoop her up right away!

Jenessa Victor San Carlos Thunderhawks 2024 5-5 Point Guard

Victor is a reliable floor general who can facilitate. Her toughness on both sides of the floor helps make her a valuable asset to a team. She can finish, hit the midrange and long ball from time to time. A solid glue player who can help a program.
