Keil Moore Fall Showcase

Willingboro, NJ. — This was my fourth consecutive year attending the Keil Moore Fall Showcase. It was a two day event held at the Kennedy Center in Willingboro, NJ.

Here are a few standout players:

Azana Baines (2019)(Highland hs, Books & Basketball), the 6′ point forward is one of south Jersey’s premier players. She brings elite size and athleticism to her ability to handle the ball from the point position, her skill set on the wings and her versatility in the posts. Baines is dynamic in all capacities and is just scratching the surface of her potential. She attacks the paint. She is tall, long and athletic enough to be a premier scorer but also has the ability to run the point.

Leilani Correa (2019)(Rutgers Prep, NJ Cardinals), Correa is a 6′ wing, efficient player, smooth athlete, long with an athletic frame and build. She goes about her work quietly. Sometimes unnoticed until you look at the stat sheet and see her atop everything from rebounds, steals, shooting %, points. She is great in space, has ability to make quick spontaneous decisions in transition. She doesn’t over play, she makes the right reads and simple plays but also has the athleticism, length to make difficult plays if need be.

Taliyah Medina (2020)(Exodus NY) Medina brings elite size and skill to her position. She can play on and off the ball. She has a versatile skill set that lends itself to exploiting defenses. She’s a matchup nightmare for opponents. Her game is very advance for her age and physically she is very mature. She can produce in the midrange, post smaller players and has range on her jumper. She help with ball responsibilities and create offense off the dribble. Her length can be bothersome to shooters on the perimeter. She’s a good rebounder and can defend bigger players. She’s a hard worker, willing learner, looks to get better, very coachable player.

What we want, we express to our participants

What it really takes to be, to be the best that you can.

We express to the kids, the young women, the young men that come to our camps what is really expected of them and whats gonna drive them beyond even their current abilities.

We want them to elevate their game by taking what they can control which is a positive attitude, their effort, the energy that they are putting into what they are doing.

Whether it’s a drill or whether it’s a game, we want them to understand that they can always get better, that there’s always things that they can do that they have control of that is going to elevate their game.

It’s not so much what you do, it’s how you do it.

That’s one of the things we reiterate to the participants all the time.

It’s not what you do, it’s how you do it.

How do you apply yourself? How do you apply your skill? How do you perceive your information?

We want the kids to be the best them.

My names Robert Brimley and my daughter Tatum Brimley is here.

I like the fact that the girls are being exposed to different aspects of the game, they have to show some of their different skills.

It enlightened them of different things.  Stretching was good with the stretch bands that was excellent.

It also allowed the girls an opportunity to get to know each other from the different teams.  And that they will know that they will see each other during the season.

We even have a girl here from Tucson, Vegas.  So I think it’s an excellent opportunity for all the young ladies to get to know each other, to get exposed.

I think its a great camp.

Mauryo Osbourne, Founder of spotlightME.tv :That’s what I’m talking about, it’s unscripted. That kind of deal.

So tell me about. Why should James, why should James pay you money?

Mr. Perry: I’m beating the streets for the guy. He’s really done well for my daughter and my family.

He’s mentored my daughter and trained my daughter for the last about 4 years.

He’s done a spectacular job helping her understand the intangibles necessary for her to be an excellent leader and that’s helped her draw from deep within herself to keep that high motor going in intense games.

He’s taught her the toughness aspect of the game that I think are invaluable.
