Here are the Top 25 prospects for 2014 from the New York region. The Super Six players from the area include a comment for ASGR analyst Bret McCormick.

1.  Sierra Calhoun, 6-1, SG, Christ the King, Brooklyn, NY.  McCormick: “Sierra is a tremendous athlete who could play the two or three spot. She has a well-rounded game, but her forte is scoring. She can shoot the three, and she can get to the basket.”

2. Lauren Moses, 6-1, PF, Rancosi Valley, Mt. Holly, NJ (Virginia commit). McCormick: “Lauren has a strong body and good athleticism. She is an aggressive player who knows how to initiate contact, so she can score in the paint and she is a very good rebounder.”

3. Lynee Belton, 6-3, PF, The Bullis School, Clinton, MD. McCormick: “Lynee is a good athlete with excellent size. She is an inside-outside player. She can play down low, and she has the ability to take it coast-to-coast.”

4. Sadie Edwards, 5-10, SG, Blair Academy, Meriden, CT. McCormick: “Sadie has reformed her game in the past few months, and her stock has really risen. She has always been able to score, but now she has developed a well-rounded game.”

5. Katelynn Flaherty, 5-7, PG, Manasquan, Point Pleasant, NJ. McCormick: “Katelynn is a gym rat with a great skill set. She has a very high basketball IQ, and she can shoot the deep three. The thing that really stands out about Katelynn is that she is a tough, tough competitor.”

6. Bianca Cuevas, 5-6, PG, Nazareth Regional, Bronx, NY. McCormick: “Bianca has a real flair for the game, and she is always a fan favorite. She is a great passer, and her shooting range goes out beyond the arc.”
