LBI Event Recap: BCAM Reaching Higher "Part Two" (Grand Rapids, MI)

By Keith Wade @wadesworld32, 06/19/24, 1:15PM EDT



Camryn VandenBosch 2025 Wing Holland Christian HS
Cam is definitely a big guard. She is a super versatile wing who showed great perimeter skills but also the ability to go down low and score defend and rebound in the paint. She has a nice handle a pure shot and the hunger and motor to be a great player. I look for Camryn to have a big time summer and winter.

Gabby Piepho 2026 Guard Howell HS
Gabby makes all the plays and makes it look easy while doing it. She has a smooth demeanor on the court, but an intensity and work ethic that combined allows for her to dominate. She shoots it from deep, scores off the bounce, and (a coach’s kid) plays with an extremely high IQ and a nice feel for the game.  Gabby is a very interesting prospect that I see garnering a ton of attention from coaches after this summer.

Mackenzie Duthie 2026 Wing Howell HS
When you talk players who are multi-dimensional you talk about Mackenzie. But Mackenzie not only does a little bit of everything on the floor but she is one of the toughest and hardest working kids on the floor. She dominates the boards on both ends and uses her great length and athleticism to get out and shine in transition. I love her skill set, and she seems to get better every time I see her.

Mariah Sain 2026 Guard Muskegon HS
Mariah is not only one of the top players in her class, but she is also one of my most improved players in the state.  Her game is clicking on all cylinders right now, she is shooting it at a high clip playmaking at a high level and she might be the best driver to the hoop in the state. Physically gifted, she uses her athleticism to soar over and around defenders but lately she has added a certain finesse to her game which makes her almost impossible to stop. Muskegon will win a lot of games, some simply because Sain is going to outwork everyone else on the floor and refuse to lose!

CeCe Bonner 2026 Guard Muskegon HS
Still one of the best defenders in the state, Bonner changes the whole landscape of a game by the way she pressures the ball, forces turnovers, and pushes in transition. She is special when pushing the rock and making plays, she has a tight handle great vision and can finish through contact. Bonner and Sain make for a scary backcourt for the next two years!

Aubree Allen 2026 Post Parma Western HS
Aubree, one of the most improved players in the state, has looked great the last few times I have seen her. She is super light on her feet, showing great footwork a soft touch and a toughness in the paint on both ends of the floor. Aubree has nice range, knocking down shot from the perimeter and she does a great job passing out of the post to cutting or spotting up guards. I see Aubree being mentioned in coaches' rooms now, and those conversations are only getting louder.

Lilly Thelen 2026 Guard Portland HS
Lily is a tough, scrappy, high-IQ guard who plays the game with a high motor and a nice feel for it. She can shoot it and handle it and does a great job getting in the lane and making plays for herself or a teammate. Thelen has all the tools to be a top PG1 for the next few years.

Kadyn Maida 2025 Wing Saline HS
Kadyn is a super high-energy, athletic wing who is a big piece of the Saline puzzle. She defends at a high level, is a terror in transition, and mixes a nice perimeter skill set with the ability to slash and score off the ball. Kadyn looks to be a surefire All-Conference player who should help Saline win a ton of games.

Keira Roehm 2026 Guard Saline HS
Shooters shoot, and Keira has that part figured out, but what impressed me most was how she was able to put the ball on the floor and get to the basket. Multiple times, the defense took away her perimeter shot, and she was aggressive, putting on the floor and scoring through contact and over taller defenders. Keira still has one of the best Jump shots in the state, but adding the drive will make her an even harder player to defend.

Colleena Bryant 2025 PG Wayne Memorial HS
I will say this and say it out loud: if there is a conversation about Miss Basketball next season, Lee Lee Bryant better be involved. The dominant way she takes over a game as a small guard is fun to watch. She scores in multiple ways. She defends like crazy, but her biggest strength is the way she runs the ball screen. Her next level ability to turn the corner and make a play, shoot it from behind the screen, or just take it to the hoop, pick your poison she has it all. Her clutch time performances seem to be getting normal practice for this senior guard; Wayne will be a tough out as long as Lee Le is on the floor!

Leyana Nemar 2027 Guard Wayne Memorial HS
Leyana plays the game with a ton of confidence. She has unlimited range, a quick release, and knocks down shots from deep. This weekend, I saw her put the ball on the floor with a shifty handle and create her shot. If Leyana continues to show her ability to get by defenders off the bounce, adding that to her lights-out bombs from three, she is going to be a scary cover.

Eliza Bush 2025 PG Arbor Prep HS
Eliza is the veteran of the group now, and she has a lot more responsibility on her plate. By the looks of it, she is ready to step up. She is a tough, relentless defender who is steady from 3 and can run the show at the point. She is a high-IQ guard who doesn’t make mistakes, and with her as an extension of the coach on the floor, Arbor Prep will be right back.
