Next year Mabrey will be following in the foot steps of her sister Michaela by going to the University of Notre Dame. The fighting Irish will be getting something special when she steps on the floor in the Irish uniform, GThing would like to say good luck on your journey.

Boogie Brozoski "2015" (Long Island Lutheran HS NY) - Boogie B is what they call her. The tough guard showed why she will be taking the show on the road to the Big Ten Conference. Brozoski will be playing for the University of Michigan and teaming up with NJ native and another Gthing Alum Katelynn Flaherty. She play with the Flu in this tournament and still put on a show knocking off one of NJ top teams Paterson Eastside (NJ).

Jess Louro "2015" (St.Rose,HS NJ) - The 5'10 combo guard seems to have that old saying of go hard or go home. She did that at the 2015 NYR in Paterson,NJ. Nice size in strength, attacks the basket, can play the 1 or 2, knows how to create her own shot, Jess will be heading to Middle Tennessee State.  

Taylor Byrne "2015" (Long Island Lutheran HS, NY) - Taylor is heading to Seton Hall University where she will impose her 6'2 frame along with her strength. This girl is one tough cookie, Byrne is a great rebounder , she can also score in the post and hit the mid-range jump shot and not to mention she love to mix it up, so watch out.

Nani Redford "2015" (Long Island Lutheran HS, NY) - This was the second time Gthing got a chance to see the crafty point guard play, the first time was on the playground in Brooklyn,NY in she plays the same way no matter if it's outdoors or indoors.

What did Gthing Learn at the 2015 New Year's Resolutions Tournament held by the NJ Sparks
We learned that Girl's go has hard as Boy's.
There where 49 teams from 8 different states, 17 division 1 colleges and loads of talent.
Some of the seniors came to the tournament red hot especially Kat Phipps the St. Rose Sr. point guard who scored a tournament record of 42 points.

Kat Phipps, St.Rose HS, 2015

Here is a list of other notables seniors.

Erin Storck -"2015" (Long Island Lutheran HS,NY) (MVP) - Erin had a good shooting night, the combo guard will be taking that to Sacred Heart University next season. She is a all around good player who see's the floor very well and Erin knows where she is suppose to be when on the floor. Lets see if the Lady Crusaders will be able to fill the void when she is gone.

Samantha Fuehring -"2015" (Immaculate Conception HS,NJ) (MVP) - The Louisville bound wing or guard can do it all. She is a true baller and should do fine at the next level. When Gthing was able to talk to her I ask Sam why South Carolina she said the they make you feel at home there and that her old New,Jersey Sparks Teammate Myisha Hines-Allen was definitely a big influence.

Re'Jean Martin -"2015" (Potter House HS,FL) (MVP) - The unsigned Senior guard showed some of the college Scouts that she was D1 material. Coach has her playing good basketball right now, Martin is a scrappy player who loves to play up tempo on both sides of the ball, Re'Jean compensates her height with playing aggressively on offense and defensive.

Kyirah English -"2015" (East Orange Campus HS,NJ) (MVP) - The scoring guard is what she is and what she does. English was droppin in buckets at the NYR 2015 this past weekend English lead her team with a game high of (19) Pt's scoring 11 of those in the first half. She is tremendous defender, English has already committed to Bucknell University with her in a few more good recruits Bucknell and English should be on the map if you ask me.

De'Nisha Swain -"2015" (Potter House HS,FL)(MVP) - Another one of Potter House (FL) unsigned point guards put in work with (24)Pt's in Potter House last game in New,Jersey. Swain plays very hard, she has a nice shot in can knock down the mid-range shot. likes to play fast, De'Nisha may have to work on creating her own shot if she is planning on going to the next level.
