East Coast Index Girls Report

It just felt like the points per possession percentage was through the roof both in the half court and in transition. I thought Emily Hegedus out of Karns City could really get to the rim and still make the right read and hit the open person on the break. She had great versatility. Also, Cara Bako from Bishop Walsh in Maryland had those same qualities. Bako could score a variety of ways and has a nice stop and pop jumper. My top post player on the day was Leah Hodick out of Pittston. She ran the floor well to compliment her solid moves in the post. See you on August 20th at Spooky Nook!

More college coaches watch our Big 60 Elite Spotlights than any other event.  Why?  Because we use a television feed to "live stream" the games over the internet and coaches can watch on their laptops, their phones, smart TV's.

Then we post the identities of the coaches/schools on the wall at our events so you can see who is signing in to watch.

Photo right shows the women's list which was on the wall at our June 18th  Big 60 Elite College Exposure Showcase at Lancaster Bible College. It was conveniently place next to the door to the lobby (left) next to the thermostat.
