Deep South Entrant PWC PSPA Has Talent, Attitude

Sam Brown guides the top team for the PWC Premier Sports Performance Academy program out of Virginia, and he is very happy with the roster he will oversee in 2015. PWC will have plenty of talent, and they have personnel any coach who love to work with.

“I feel very good about the talent level. I think everyone of our girls is a potential Division I player,” Brown said. “And, they are all great kids that are hungry to improve. They have passion and intensity. They are high powered, high energy kids that get up and down the court. They are  also kids that share the basketball, and they pick each other up if someone makes a mistake. This is the best group of kids I’ve coached, whether you are talking about AAU or high school.”

That group will be on display at the  2015 Deep South Classic, which will be played in Raleigh, NC on April 24-26. The Deep South Classic, which annually features the nation’s top travel programs, will once again have the entire tournament in one facility — the tremendous Raleigh Convention Center.

Brown believes that talented depth will be a key for PWC this summer, but three players will be leading the way. Paris McBride is a 5-5 point guard from the Class of 2018, Hanna Oliver is a 5-6 shooting guard from the 2017 class, and Jeane Robinson is a 5-6, 2018 guard.
“Depending on the game situation, Paris can be a distributing point guard, or she can be a scoring point guard,” Brown said. “She can score in transition, and from the three-point arc, and she led her conference in assists as a high school freshman. Hanna is a three-point shooter with all the skills, so she could play the one or the two. Jeane is a two-three player who shoots the three well, and she can drive hard to the basket. She is very good in transition, and she has great court awareness.”
Bret McCormick, the analyst from the All Star Girls Report, also provided his perspective on the PWC stars.
“McBride is a quick point guard who is good in the open floor. She likes to involve her teammates, and she can hit the three,” McCormick said. “Oliver is an athletic combo guard. She is an effective shooter from beyond the arc, but she also has the ball skills to work the point. Robinson is a really good athlete, the type of player who can take the ball coast-to-coast, and she also has good shooting range.”
