Summer Shoot Out
Summer Shoot Out took place in Spartanburg, SC at the Upward Star Center. 60 teams came out for a day of competitive matchup games as we reintroduced LBI events during this time. There were so many great performances by both teams and individual players. The LBI Carolina staff had these observations at the event.
Tanajah Hayes – 2021 pg Team Curry 17u GUAA
One of the top 2021 prospects that’s still available. Does a good job leading a loaded Team Curry 17u squad that features multiple BCS kids. Plays the role of a true point guard that makes sure everyone is involved and happy. Has a lot of scoring ability of her own, I saw her knock down the 3, hit the pull up mid-range and also finish strong in the paint with contact. There are a lot of programs that could use a player like Hayes.
Jazlyn Harris – 2024 sg CLT Lady Monarchs 2023
One of the young stand outs at LBI Summer Shoot Out. Kid just has the knack for scoring the ball, very good off the bounce and explosive in transition.
Lina Lyon – 2023 pg LPMC-TN
Very heady point guard that really knows the game and has a nose for the ball. She can really score it from the point, a big time shooter from beyond the arc also showed she can knock down the 15’ mid range.
Maddie Dillinger – 2021 f Lady Attack Elite 17u
Good size kid that can play the 3 or stretch 4 at the next level. Really showed that she can compete at a high level. Had a chance to see her against BCS level prospects and she more than held her own, was able to score it in multiple ways. Hard nosed kid that just gets after it from jump to buzzer. Low to mid D1’s should take notice.
Ray’ven Tyler – 2024 g Lady Georgia Elite
Tyler is a spark plug that just makes plays on both ends. She is fearless when it comes to attacking the paint. Does a good job finishing plays through contact. Very scrappy kid that plays hard on both ends.
Raven Preston – 2022 w Team Felton 2022
Very dangerous in transition, explosive off the bounce, just always seems to be where the ball is. Kid is like a swiss army knife with all the tools she has. Her length creates havoc on the defensive end. Had this been a normal travel season kid would have blown up!
Sammy Ackles – 2022 p Team Curry 16u
Active post that is very long, did a good job making her presence felt on both ends. Had a few nice blocks along with some impressive finishes in the paint. Still very raw but has a huge upside.
Skyla Tuthill – 2025 sg Hoopaville South
Saniya Wilson – 2022 pg Team Curry 16u
Sarah Strong – 2024 f Strong Center 2024
Olivia Randolph – 2024 p Team South Carolina 2024
Raina McGowens – 2024 g Team South Carolina 2024
Blanca Thomas – 2024 p Lady Attack Elite 2024

Tyra Myers – 2022 pg Hoopaville North
Imelda McMenamin – 2022 pg Charlotte Dream Elite
Top Teams at LBI Summer Shoot Out
17u – Team Curry 17u UGAA
One of the top teams on the travel circuit this season. Team is loaded with at least 9 D1 kids and has every piece that a great team needs. The biggest factor is the strong coaching staff bringing that kind of talent together and having them gel. Would have been really fun to watch them over the course of a full travel season.
16u – Team Curry 16u
Very solid team that just fits together. These girls play hard and always seem to be on the same page. Fun team to watch and their fans give you all of the energy you want. Good guard play is complimented by long wings and big post players.
16u – Team Felton 2022
Scrappy team that gets after it. Lots of talent that has bought in to executing team ball. Felton has some players that will be great at the next level with their understanding of the game and playing in a system. It would have been a great matchup with Team Curry.
15u – Team Carolina 15u
Coach Joey Harrell proves every year why he should be considered one of the top coaches in the region. His girls always play hard and never back down. I was impressed with the high level of execution by this team. Very strong team with a bright future.
