Kamrah Banks, Spiece Lady Gym Rats Team Hollins 2024 EYBL
5'8" 2026 Guard, Indianapolis, IN
-Banks is one of the youngest players on the EYBL, as she's a 2026 playing up two grade levels. Despite being younger, she showed she can certainly compete on the big stage. Led Lady Gym Rats with 8 points, including a pair of three pointers, including one off the right wing that shows her range extends well beyond the line. Already holds Division I offers. Has a great feel for how to run a team. Despite her youth, she will likely emerge as one of the top 2026 talents in the country.
Aaliyah Crump, North Tartan 2024 EYBL
6'1" 2025 Guard, Minnetonka HS (MN)
-Nationally regarded 2025 is as good as anyone in her class in the region. She tied for game-high honors with 11 rebounds, making it look easy from her Guard spot, such a valuable weapon for a perimeter player. Had a pair of smooth drives among her 6 points, including a quick attack from the free throw line down. Never looks rushed, always feels like her brain is a step ahead of the action on the court. With her size & length combination she is only going to get more and more difficult to contain as she matures. Unique talent.
Savanah Gardner, North Tartan 2024 EYBL
6'0" 2024 Guard, Eastview HS (MN)
-Gardner is starting to find her fit more and more each event with North Tartan. Finished with an impressive 10 points & 3 rebounds in a reserve role. Very comfortable shooter in the mid-range game. Showed a smooth pull-up jumper and a little jumper where she used the glass. Near double-digit scorer as Sophomore at Eastview, who will be counted on to continue her growth and role as a leader. Division I prospect.
Laura Hauge, North Tartan 2024 EYBL
5'9" 2024 Guard, St Croix Lutheran HS (MN)
-One of the most prominent shooters from the wing in the region, Hauge clipped home a pair of triples on her way to a double-digit effort with 10 points. Has incredible confidence in her shooting, a miss is absolutely no deterrent to her, she has a true shooters mentality with deep range off the wings. One of the most prolific scorers in Minnesota and she's only heading into her Junior season. Division I prospect who could step in early and make an impact with her ability to stretch the floor off the wings.
Tori McKinney, North Tartan 2024 EYBL
-It's such an advantage to have a player like McKinney on your roster and know that whomever is the opponents top scorer is going to leave with maybe half their average and she won't need any help doubling. She's that strong defensively. Long and athletic wing who should continue to get a little bigger and stronger as well. Runs the floor and gets most of her offense on drives with her long strides, sneaking in for offensive rebounds, or in the transition game. Will rebound her position. Division I prospect, just a matter of which school will value her unique abilities the most.
Rainey Welson, North Tartan 2024 EYBL
5'9" 2025 Guard, Hortonville HS (WI)
-Welson is one of my favorite Point Guards over the last several years. She can score it, always puts her teammates in position to score, defends, and has a certain toughness you'll find in very few Guards, she's a scrapper. Had 13 points, making it look easy with her drives, where she had a nice runner, in the transition game, where she's a dual threat as a creator or scorer and with her three point range. Among the top 2025s in the region, she's a gamer and a High Major Point Guard prospect.
Trinity Wilson, North Tartan 2024 EYBL
6'3" 2024 Center, Lakeville North HS (MN)
-One of the region's most rapidly-emerging post prospects, Wilson made life difficult on the interior for Lady Gym Rats. She presented two big problems. First, was her interior scoring, where she piled up 15 points, combining down low buckets, including off as a roller off pick & roll action, and mixing in short to mid-range jumpers up to the free throw line. The second issue she caused, was her glass dominance. She piled up 11 boards, as North Tartan dominated the rebound game and gave Gym Rats, few, if any, second chance points. Great to see stories like Wilson's, she's worked very hard, improved dramatically, and is seeing her hard work pay off with Division I opportunities.
