This past weekend Sabino’s girls basketball team participated in the first-ever Section 7 Team Camp event in Phoenix featuring eight high school teams in Arizona.
Sabino went 3-1 reaching the championship game.
This was the perfect opportunity for the Sabercats to work on team chemistry by getting a better understanding of the team they have. They know exactly what they’ve got in their three-headed monster featuring Kiya Dorroh, Kam’Ren Rhodes and Kamryn Doty. All three players have numerous college scholarship offers from across the country making them some of the best players not only in Tucson, but the state of Arizona.
Rhodes, a sophomore point guard, has received offers from Kentucky, Purdue, South Carolina State, Jacksonville State and UNLV.
Sabino assistant coach Jeremy Daniels, who coaches Rhodes and Doty as part of the AZ Supreme club team that will compete in July in various national tournaments, had this to say about the offers Rhodes has received:
“She’s going to have every school in the country trying to recruit her. She just came from Arizona State. … Arizona State, they love her. Arizona State has been recruiting her but they don’t offer early. Arizona’s just picking up. Clemson, Georgia Tech, Mississippi State are in the mix. Kentucky and Purdue already offered. When you start looking at those SEC schools offering, the others will jump on eventually.”
Here is Rhodes on her college offers, off-season plans and what Sabino needs to do to achieve the ultimate goal:
Doty, a junior combo guard, has received offers from St. John’s, South Carolina State, Harford and UNLV.
“She’s going to pick up Lipscomb, that’s coming,” Daniels said. “She’s going to pick up Nebraska. Weber State is on her and a couple of ACC schools. “
