I hope Sam doesn't lose her youthful enthusiasm for the game with all her fist pumps, jumps and shouts anytime soon (like the last shot on the video).
to be friends with similar talents and good basketball IQs.
Sam's highlights remind me of Euro forwards/tall wings with a variety of skills.
me a bit of Skylar Diggins. Do folks see any similarity? Finishes really strongly.
..and on both sides of the paint. Look forward to seeing Sam in the 3 v 3 tourney. Go get 'em!
I know this video was only highlights, but I sure would have liked seeing Anaya going to her left when she scored.
use the left. Like a lot of players, she tends to use her strong hand in part because they can get away with it against most of the competition they face.
And, as you brought up, this is an edited reel and who knows what else was available on the source tapes.
That said, she has a strong right handed move.
Once I went back to look again, I saw more pull-up jumpers from Sam on this reel that usual. Like to see that...I sometimes feel that recent coaches have kept her at the foul line or out by the three-point arc.
