I think a better way to phrase this is that big time high school basketball is not the same as big time club ball.
Yes, the talent is better at EYBL events, but that doesn't mean the games are better.
Club is at it's core run and gun hero ball.
In high school, especially at the level Mater Dei plays at, teams scout, they scheme, they try to make you do things you don't want to. There are crowded gyms in the playoffs and your schoolmates add pressure to win.
It's just a different animal.
All these girls are really good, and have bright futures. But don't just assume they are walking into starting roles or end-of-game situations.
