from bluestarmedia.org – FRANKLIN,Tenn.—While the NCAA may have taken away 30 percent the previously available summer evaluation days for Division I coaches, their short sightedness still couldn’t diminish the stature of the 10th annual Battle in the Boro. In fact, the event actually grew from 340 to 370 teams this year and added representation from several more states with participants coming from 36 states and the District of Columbia last weekend. Further validating the ‘Boro’s well-earned reputation would be the presence of 854 individual college recruiters roaming the sidelines of 36 different courts over the course of the tournament.
Seven divisions offered up competition in pool play and ultimately moving to brackets with the championship games actually occurring on the July 13th, one day following the completion of the first segment of the NCAA’s summer calendar. Gold and silver brackets followed pool play in both the Showcase Divisions (16/17 and 15) culminating with nine teams going home on a winning note.
Beatrice Mompremier – 6-5 – Miami Suns Team Fowles
If the basketball thing doesn’t work out (fat chance of that!) 6-5 Beatrice Mompremier could easily make the transition to Volleyball. Combining length, agility, speed, quickness and a major league vertical, the Miami Suns – Team Fowles 2015 center is the prototype recruiter’s dream in the post. That being said, Mompremier still has a ways to go to capitalize on all of those tools. There are times you can see her rushing in an effort to capitalize on an opening or having her mind made up regardless of what the defense in offering. It’s obvious that she knows what she’s looking for and has been the beneficiary of some solid on floor instruction. The Miami native is quick to exploit defensive breakdowns but will need to work on creating her own looks when defenders line up straight behind. Of course with her ability to get off the floor, she may just be shooting over them in the future!

Beatrice Mompremier, 6-5, center, 2015, Miami Senior HS/Miami Suns Team Fowles (Miami FL)
Mompremier’s offense appears to be improving as she is adding post moves around the basket. In this event, she was most noticed for her shot blocking and rebounding. Needless to say, she is a high major prospect and strong candidate for the 2015 Full Court Fresh 50.
