The BWSL Richmond program has developed into an East Coast powerhouse in recent years, and this summer the club will be looking to spread it’s wings even more when BWSL ventures west to the Lake Las Vegas Classic.
“We are so excited about this tournament,” said Coach Maxwell Coats. “In the past, we have focused on playing events on the East Coast, and we felt like we had players who needed to get some exposure with the West Coast schools. Plus, we will be facing some new competition. We see the same teams a lot, but now we’ll get to play the top teams from out west, so it should be a great experience.”
The Lake Las Vegas Classic will be played at the Westin Lake Las Vegas complex on July 10. The field in Nevada will be loaded with outstanding programs from around the country, including BWSL Richmond.
“Sam is an amazing player,” Coats said. “She is ultra athletic, she is an absolute monster in the post, and she has step back NBA three-point range. She is very talented and very skilled for her age.”
“Maupin can be effective inside, but she really likes to face up,” added McCormick. “She is a very good passer and her shooting range goes out to the arc. Lilly is a very quick player who can attack the basket. She knows the game, and she has a nice stroke from three-point range. Norris is a good athlete with great size. She has nice footwork, and she has a very high ceiling.”
