Olivia Healy is #1 in Class of 2013
The New Year has come and gone. We have seen a lot of basketball in December and will be updating our rankings accordingly. The following is the updated rankings for the Mass Girls Class of 2013.
1. Olivia Healy (5’10”, Reading High School) – Healy is a tough combo forward who can play inside and out. She plays the game with great intensity. Healy has the ability to score in traffic off the dribble and can knock down the open three. Her versatility and toughness make her a tough matchup for most forwards her age.
2. Ashley Lutz (6’1”, Lincoln Sudbury High School) - Lutz is a multi purpose player. We got a chance to see Lutz a few times over the past year and she is better each time we see her. Lutz has a great shooting touch from the outside and also has the ability to put the ball on the floor. Plays the game with great intensity. Lutz is very physical and already has a college frame which helps her battle on the boards. She has great upside.
3. Gracie Miller (6’2”, Wellesley High School) - Miller is a 6’2 center who can do it all. Miller has great touch from 15 feet in. She has very good footwork on the block and she also runs the floor exceptionally well. Miller has a knack for always going to the open spots on the floor freeing her up for easy hoops. She has very long arms making her a good shot blocker and rebounder. Miller possibly has the greatest upside in the class of 2013.
4. Casey McLaughlin (6’0”, Central Catholic High School) – McLaughlin is an extremely athletic forward who loves to attack the basket. McLaughlin has one of the quickest first steps for any player in the state. She’s a relentless competitor who is also looking to make plays. Very good rebounder and finisher around the basket.
5. Ara Talkov (5’11”, Swampscott High School) – Talkov is a guard who can do it all. She can knock it down from behind the arc, and also beat defenders off the dribble. Talkov is extremely aggressive offensively as she is always searching for ways to score. She is also very good at getting out in transition and finishing at the end of the break.
