Syracuse, N.Y. — "A range of emotions raced through Lexie Roe’s mind as she watched the seven other girls basketball players from the Class of 2021 off her I-90 Elite AAU team accept college scholarships.

“Obviously, I was really proud of all my friends,” she said. “But it was just stressful on my part to see them one-by-one go to schools, and then it was down to me...”

Amid pandemic, basketball recruiting trail becomes risk vs. reward decision
Jonah Bronstein Jul 21, 2020

"The hustle and bustle of grassroots basketball is dribbling along during the coronavirus pandemic. For college prospects and the coaches trying to project their futures, it is an unfamiliar recruiting trail to navigate.

“This is the first year in 32 years that I’m not out there in July,” University at Buffalo women’s basketball coach Felisha Legette-Jack said. “So it’s a very strange time for me.”

Lexie's Dad was a very good player for SU. I'd expect that he instilled a high level of competition in her and maybe even helped "a bit" with her jump shot. Always great to see regional players wearing the purple and white.

Sure wish the mens' team could better tap into the NYC/LI and greater Philly players. That may very well come to pass under the present staff.
