PLAYER PROFILE: It's worth noting that Jade Martin was recently named the MVP at the Marquette University elite camp (June 2011). And for good reason, Martin is physically strong, very gifted athletically, and has explosive moves on the court. A righty, Martin can finish with either hand but apparently likes her left. She can also play with finesse, is a very good passer and is explosive going after loose balls, rebounds, driving to the bucket, and finishing in traffic. At 5'10", Martin can play the forward or guard positions offensively but is strong and quick enough to guard every position. She runs the floor, uses her body well and can catch in traffic, then blow by defenders. And because of her strength, quickness and burst to the ball, Martin is able to get open and make things happen. She is also a strong on-the-ball and help side defender. Martin can score with ease and is very unselfish to a fault. She needs to take advantage of  the green light  she has and look at the basket more. Martin has a confident demeanor on the court , and while under pressure, she seems to explode out of trouble and make the right reads. Martin is also a very experienced player with a high basketball IQ. She has been a starter for Kennedy High School since the eighth grade. Martin has nice fundamental skills but will need to continue to put in work to improve her footwork, shooting balance, and court confidence.

 

TO WORK ON : outside shooting, both catch-and-shoot and off-the-dribble as well as taking over during crunch time.
