I had a chance to go to a viewing tournament with a college coach friend. While watching a big matchup game, a coach sitting next to me says "Shame. So much athleticism, so much potential and so few basketball players." A couple coaches got started talking about how little the girls appeared to know the game. Mostly one-on-one, run-and-gun basketball with little in the way of proper defense. Another coach mentioned that these players were "being trained to be cornerbacks and free safeties" and were "not prepared in the least to play collegiate half-court defense". It reminded one of the coaches of the days they'd go down to the city courts and watch pickup games. They did mention some coaches and clubs that they liked. I won't name them here to avoid the flame wars. I just thought it was interesting.
