SB Showcase: Williams and Connally

Gabby Connally and Kianna Williams

The ShesBallin Showcase  featured over 100 prospects in two sessions. Kids from Oklahoma, Indiana, Colorado and all over the state of Texas convened in San Antonio for a celebration of talent and dedication. Though many participants were from across the state and country, two of the brightest stars were from San Antonio.

With the San Antonio 2017's being arguably as good as the 2010 and 2014 classes in terms of potential college prospects, the top 2 players are guards Kianna Williams and Gabbi Connally.  Both guards are considered Top 100 prospects in some national services, with Williams being considered in the Top 30 in one reputable report.

Williams is cat quick. Her change of direction is reminiscent of 2015 speedster Kyra Lambert. Her pass first mentality and calm demeanor reminds some of NC State PG and former Wagner great Len'Nique Brown. Like Brown, Williams will join a stacked backcourt at Wagner HS next season.

Connally is a score first guard in the mode of Baylor bound McKenzie Calvert, a player she reportedly patterns her game after. She is strong enough to play through contact and is a fiery competitor. Connaly has a flash in her game that warrants fans and is bound for Brandies HS.

These two kids are sure to keep the recent trend of San Antonio producing national caliber guards alive. Both kids are already drawing interest from major programs across the nation.
