Player: Amarachi Onyekonwu

 Lady Phenom went out to Raleigh over the weekend to check out the Deep South Classic, as teams from all over came to compete and we got a great chance to learn new talent. Here, we will dive into players that we saw and impressed at the event.

Onyekonwu quickly grabbed our attention with her play, as the 6’2 prospect clearly made her presence felt down in the paint. She is a tough force and uses her frame extremely well, carving out space, battling through opponents, finishing strong through contact and around the basket, and also an extremely strong force on the boards.

She did an excellent job running end to end, and she really made her impact felt in posting up down in the paint, operating with her back to the basket, and attacking the defender to score inside. If she didn’t, she was able to create second-chance opportunities with her ability to get on the boards and score.  From what we saw on the court at the Deep South Classic, Onyekonwu could be a name to really watch more and could garner more eyes her way.
